Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your DocBook files and convert them to Emacs Org mode files. Yes, it’s that easy.
Converting from DocBook
DocBook is a really good file format for writing technical books, that’s based on XML. It’s an open standard and widely used for open-source projects. It captures the logical structure of the content and can be published to many formats. Write the content in DocBook without thinking about the visual representation. Normally this is the part where I say something bad about the file format, but to be honest, I really like DocBook. Oh, just one thing: It’s very old. But that shouldn’t stop you from using the nice file format. Convert all your files to DocBook and convert them from DocBook to any other format. Just upload your file and we’ll see what we can do.
The files end with
.dbk by default.
Converting to Emacs Org mode
Oh man, we really learned a lot about text formats already, but Emacs Org mode is the nerdiest thing ever. It’s like a note keeping app and a todo app, like a project management tool and a book authoring tool. But all that based on a plain-text file. That’s real digital minimalism. No cloud, no binary data, no proprietary file formats, just a simple, good old plain-text file. Add headlines, lists, paragraphs, tasks, time tracking, agendas, tables. Thank you, Carsten Dominik, for developing such a great file format. By the way, the logo is a unicorn and that’s fair, after all it’s very unique.The files end with
