Hello,

In my quest/endeavor/struggle to generate an org file for what I want to
do during the day, I’m trying to leverage the power of org-agenda (that
does a lot of what I want to do) to create an org file. I learned of
org-agenda-write, which I could use to write to file what I want then
include it in my org file, but for that I need to create the correct
org-agenda buffer. What is the elisp way of doing it?

I tried using org-agenda-list, but it only seems to restore the current
agenda view. For instance, (org-agenda-list nil nil 1) generates an
agenda for the week (which is my default), even though I pass a SPAN
argument of 1. I also don’t know how to set the org-agenda-skip steps
before calling that function…

Thanks a lot for any suggestion on how to do this.

Best,

Alan

If it is possible to set up what you want in an entry in
org-agenda-custom-commands, then you can call it in a program like


#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(org-agenda nil "w" nil)
#+END_SRC

In that snippet, I have the key in an org-agenda-custom-commands set to
"w".

that generates an agenda buffer for me, which I assume you can then use
the org-agenda-write command on.

Thank you for the suggestion, this is most useful.

This is what I ended up doing.

- set up an agenda view with only the current day and the events:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  ("d" "Daily schedule"
   ((agenda ""
            ((org-agenda-span 'day)
             (org-agenda-use-time-grid nil)
             (org-agenda-skip-function '(org-agenda-skip-entry-if 'scheduled))
             ))))
#+end_src

- use it with org-agenda write, massaging the results a little

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(defun as/get-daily-agenda ()
  "Return the agenda for the day as a string."
  (interactive)
  (let ((file (make-temp-file "daily-agenda" nil ".txt")))
    (org-agenda nil "d" nil)
    (org-agenda-write file nil nil "*Org Agenda(d)*")
    (kill-buffer)
    (with-temp-buffer
      (insert-file-contents file)
      (goto-char (point-min))
      (kill-line 2)
      (while (re-search-forward "^  " nil t)
        (replace-match "- " nil nil))
      (buffer-string))))
#+end_src

Thanks again for your suggestion.

Best,

Alan
