Specific Use Case: I have two files, index.org and blog.org. I would like to include the table of contents of blog.org in index.org.

The "obvious solution" to me is to use org-babel to inject html upon export (probably with JQuery+NodeJS). However, this seems kind-of hacky to me. Is there a better, more idiomatic solution?


How about using the #+INCLUDE derivative? In index.org add the following line:

#+INCLUDE: blog.org::*TOC

In blog.org put your TOC under a *TOC header.

Feel free to explore the #+INCLUDE documentation for similar approaches.

  • The problem with this solution is that the included table of contents enumerates the headers in index.org, not blog.org. – michaelkovarik Aug 9 '18 at 22:42
