I've recently decided to learn how to use Emacs. As I want to learn by using, I thought to use Org mode package as a way to track the books I want to read and the ones I've read. I want to create a template for to list these books.
How can I create a template that automatically generates a given list of properties to be filled in under a heading?
In the properties section of the manual a good example of what I would like to do is given :
* CD collection ** Classic *** Goldberg Variations :PROPERTIES: :Title: Goldberg Variations :Composer: J.S. Bach :Publisher: Deutsche Grammophon :NDisks: 1 :END:
However, what I've understood of emacs and orgmode is that they are meant to ease the task for me and allow me to gain some time doing such a list. Therefore, I would like to have a sort of template that automatically creates the property drawer with all the properties ready to be filled. At every new entry inside the CD collection I would like to get :
** New entry :PROPERTIES: :Title: :Composer: :Publisher: :NDisks: :END:
These properties may be inherited, as described in the manual, or set in a configuration file. I thought to use easy templates but I was not sure it would have been the proper way to do it.
Besides, I would like to have examples of similar lists. I've found a lot of examples about how to implement the gtd method in orgmode but few things about look-like lists.
