# Take a Diary Using Emacs Org

## 1 Introduction

There is one diary system built in Emacs. When you are in the Calendar buffer, press i will bring you a menu to select what kind of diary you want to take. However, as a loyal fan of Emacs Org, I want to take diary using Org.

When I am in the org agenda buffer, press i will bring me a menu like what show in the calendar buffer after pressing i.

## 2 Set up

It seems that all you need to do is set the org-agenda-diary-file, so that Org knows where to put the diary file.

(setq org-agenda-diary-file  "~/zorg/Dropbox/base/zdiary.org")


After this, everything is left for Org mode. All you have to do is writing your diary.
