In emacs, is it possible to configure an "org" file to have different exporting behaviors depending on the output format?

For example: I'd like to export equations as itself for LaTeX, but as images (I believe it is achieved with the option tex:imagemagick) when exporting to HTML.

  • @DanielBeck It looks like I was a bit too trigger-happy here. Consider unix.stackexchange.com/q/94619/2465 Interestingly, the U&L question was closed briefly for that reason (U&L has a specific close reason "posted on multiple sites"), so I wasn't the only one who thought they were very similar. Dox, it might be better when you do something like this in the future to clearly differentiate the questions from one another, to avoid such mishaps. – a CVn Oct 12 '13 at 22:08
  • @MichaelKjörling Right, thanks for clarifying. I already assumed this based on your comments being deleted. OTOH I wanted to clarify the cross-posting policy in general, given that Dox writes: "and additionally it's a different group". – Daniel Beck Oct 12 '13 at 22:19

If the behavior you want can somehow be implemented by code added to the heading of the output file, you have various tags to work with like #+LATEX_HEADER, #+LATEX_CLASS_OPTIONS or #+HTML_HEAD (depending on the version of org-mode). Check the general org-mode documentation for more details.

If that's not good enough, and you need to roll your own back-end, see the Org Export Documentation.
