Is there an org-mode equivalent of the LaTeX glossary package?

Use case - you have an external file with a glossary list, the \gls{keyword} gets expanded at compile time to whatever is referenced in the external file.

    {{{MACRO}}} ? – mankoff Jul 26 '20 at 12:40
  • You can put literal LaTeX into your Org mode file: it will be added as-is to the exported .tex file. If you are looking for something that will work with multiple export formats, I don't think one exists. – NickD Jul 26 '20 at 13:04
  • @mankoff - thanks I'll have a look at Macro - I was hoping for something more organised specifically for glossary management - but macro might work. – OrgAddict Jul 26 '20 at 14:01
  • @OrgAddict is {{{GLS(keyword)}}} better? :). – mankoff Jul 26 '20 at 21:35

You may wish to look at John Kitchin's org-ref, which also includes glossary support.
