Hi all,

I have uploaded the (very) initial version of my package
org-critical-edition:

https://gitlab.com/maciaschain/org-critical-edition

This package lets you prepare a philological critical edition in Org
Mode. The natural output is LaTeX with the reledmac package
(https://www.ctan.org/pkg/reledmac).

(For those who are not philologists, this is an example of critical
edition that I typesetted recently: https://imgur.com/a/drqCib5)

Feedback welcome!

Best regards,

Juan Manuel

Very neat!

Curious about a design choice: If I understand correctly,
org-critical-edition puts the hidden notes in the description and the
visible annotated text in the target of an org link. This is the reverse
of the out-of-the-box link appearance (description visible, target
hidden if description present). Why take the extra trouble to do it this
way?

Yours,
Christian

Hi Christian, thank you very much for your comments.

Indeed, the decision to reverse the order of the link appearance may
seem somewhat shocking :-) I did it like this to keep a syntactic
structure similar to the reledmac command \edtext, when the user (the
reledmac user) views the links full displayed. In LaTeX/reledmac the
structure is:

...some text... \edtext{annotated passage}{critical notes} ...some text...

The annotated passage is part of the text and is also the "lemma" in the
critical note.

In org-critical-edition I define a new link type called `edtext', using
`org-link-set-parameters', and the identifying string (`edtext:') must be
placed in the target part.

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
