  • Schedule Into Org Mode

    August 25th, 2011
    emacs, org_mode, tech  [html]
    I keep a public schedule on sccs, which I maintain with a script. To get this available in org-mode in the agenda view, I needed to:
    • modify the schedule script to create schedule.org in addition to schedule.ical.
    • set up cron on my laptop to automatically download it every 5min
    • tell org-mode about it:
              (setq org-agenda-files (list "~/todo.org"
                                           "~/schedule.org"))
              
    • tell emacs to automatically refresh files from disk when they update if I've made no changes to them within emacs (which I already wanted):
              (global-auto-revert-mode 1)
              
    Now I see scheduled tasks in agenda-view:
    Week-agenda (W34):
    Monday     22 August 2011 W34
    Tuesday    23 August 2011
    Wednesday  24 August 2011
