09:31:23@emixam150:cheredeprince.netLa BécasseI have another question: does it make sense to define a derived export backend, when I also want that the file: links with .mp4 extension are open with VLC ?

In reply to La Bécasse: Thank you for your answers, is it easy to define a derived export backend ? If you can write Elisp, it's not hard. [04:31:23] La Bécasse> I have another question: does it make sense to define a derived export backend, when I also want that the file: links with .mp4 extension are open with VLC ?
I think the matter of how links behave in Emacs and how they behave in exported HTML are different, so I guess so, yes.
09:36:21@emixam150:cheredeprince.netLa BécasseOk, do you know any documentation, that I can use to change the html export backend ?
09:37:50@alphapapa:matrix.orgalphapapa

You can look on Worg and Reddit r/orgmode and r/emacs, as well as Google searches. There are articles and such that have been posted fairly recently. And of course C-h f org-export-define-derived-backend RET.

09:38:45@emixam150:cheredeprince.netLa Bécasse Thank a lot.
09:39:26@alphapapa:matrix.orgalphapapa

You're welcome.

09:45:22@emixam150:cheredeprince.netLa BécasseIs org-file-apps the good variable to modify in order to open .mp4 files with VLC ?
09:45:37@alphapapa:matrix.orgalphapapa

I don't know.

09:53:40@emixam150:cheredeprince.netLa Bécasse Ok, I tried by adding ("\\.mp4\\'" . "vlc %s") to the list org-file-apps, it works perfectly 🙂
09:54:06@alphapapa:matrix.orgalphapapa

great!

16:21:50@taigaforest:matrix.orgtaigaforestUsing org-mode tables, I'd like to transpose the rows and columns of a table. Does anyone know how?

I typed "org mode transpose table" into duckduckgo and found a blog article showing exactly how.

Ah, you were quicker, same goes for Google and Bing, they all yield the same blog post i guess

Besides that, the blog article isn't even necessary. =M-x apropos RET org table transpose RET= will show the built-in command that does it.

We need to teach Emacs/Org users to look in Emacs before looking or asking elsewhere. :)

16:30:33@taigaforest:matrix.orgtaigaforestI did search in Emacs first. I looked at the Org Mode Manual typed 's' then 'transpose' then Enter. Search failed.
16:31:14@taigaforest:matrix.orgtaigaforestThank you for the answer.

The Org manual is not always comprehensive with regard to every command available. Using =M-x apropos= searches all of the commands and variables that are actually available.
16:32:02@taigaforest:matrix.orgtaigaforestI also tried searching in DDG, but I guess I didn't get the phrasing right. 😅
16:34:04@taigaforest:matrix.orgtaigaforestYes, using apropos with 'transpose' does work. Thanks for that reminder.
16:34:50@alphapapa:matrix.orgalphapapa

You're welcome.

16:35:01@taigaforest:matrix.orgtaigaforestY'all are the best.
16:35:10@alphapapa:matrix.orgalphapapa

We stand on the shoulders of giants!
