I have a similar issue as the one in this post, but I have file header arguments so the ditaa source blocks results don't get added to a pdf via org-export dispatcher:
... #+PROPERTY: header-args :eval never-export ...
I'm creating the diagrams in a separate file because they are too big, but I would like to include them in the source blocks so I can evaluate them interactively. My goal:
... #+RESULTS: file:my-ditaa-diagram.svg ...
So far, two approaches to the problem have failed:
1 . writing a ditaa source block, include file in
:file header-arg, evaluate empty block
#+BEGIN_SRC ditaa :file ./diagrams/ditaa-test.txt :cmdline --svg -E +END_SRC #+RESULTS: [[file:./diagrams/ditaa-test.txt]]
- invoking the shell to run ditaa as I would do so in the commandline interface:
#+BEGIN_SRC sh :var file="./diagrams/ditaa-test.txt" :var ditaa="~/.emacs.d/ditaa/ditaa-0.11.0-standalone.jar" java -jar "$ditaa" -Eo --svg "$file" #+END_SRC
The second approach sent this error message when I evaluated the source block:
Error: Unable to access jarfile ~/.emacs.d/ditaa/ditaa-0.11.0-standalone.jar
I cannot reproduce this error when I actually run ditaa in the commandline. That is, I can create the diagrams when I shoot up the terminal and write that same line in my command prompt.
Since I have too many diagrams, my work would slow down if I would have to build them everytime, move them to the same working directory as my Org file, and then including them one by one in my org file. Ideally, I would like to build them seperately, include them in my source block and then just evaluate them (
C-c C-c instead of
java -jar dita.jar myfile.txt -Eo --svg).
Given that: I have large ditaa diagrams but would like to interactively export the results to my org buffer; I have tried the solution in the link to a similar post but failed; have tried to solve my problem as sketched in point
in the text above; need to create SVG images and be able to export them to the same working directory (even though my diagrams are in a seperate
./diagrams/ folder relative to my working
org file + a weird LaTeX
svg package quirk requires that the SVG images are in the same path as the file that includes them).
How can I evaluate a ditaa diagram from an included file and export the results in the same file path and not export results to PDF?
I have tried the answer provided here: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2011-12/msg00272.html. With this code snippet:
#+NAME: Diagram #+BEGIN_SRC ditaa :file diagram.svg :cmdline --svg -E :exports code #+INCLUDE: ./diagrams/diagram.txt #+END_SRC #+RESULTS: Diagram [[file:diagram.svg]]
And I get an SVG exported to my buffer file path but I don't get the diagram rendered... instead I get a rendered SVG with text
