I use Org-mode as a structured notebook. I find it convenient to store information I want to keep using the directory/tree paradigm, when the notes I want to keep are too short to need a file.
Older articles (2009,
2007) mention integration of Org with
remember-mode for the implementation of GTD. They mention a number of elisp variables/functions, e.g.
org-remember-templates and features such as "remember templates", which I am unable to find.
The Remember Mode entry in the Emacs wiki seems to clarify a bit:
Now that OrgMode and RememberMode are included in Emacs (as of Emacs 23), activation is as simple as: (org-remember-insinuate) Note that there is no need for: (require 'remember)
but again I do not find
Someone mentions yet another package,
(require 'org-remember), and still I have no such a library.
I am confused, to say the least. Outdated GTD guides on Worg might still be (conceptually) useful, but I need to have clear the following points.
- Is Remember mode still needed by Org? Or is its functionality entirely covered by Org?
- More specifically, is
org-capturethe Org alternative to Remember mode?
