Getting Started With Org Super Agenda on Spacemacs

Contents

Demo

I recently got setup with org-super-agenda. It’s a great tool that makes custom agenda views way easier to manage.

I use a “Next View” for quickly finding a task to work on. This is what it looks like:

/org-super-next.png
Super Next View

I use a “Todo View” for finding tasks to mark as NEXT. This is what it looks like:

/org-super-todo.png
Super Todo View

Setup

Setting up with Spacemacs was quick. Add org-super-agenda to dotspacemacs-additional-packages

dotspacemacs-additional-packages '(
                                   org-super-agenda
                                   ...
                                   )

Next add your custom agenda commands to dotspacemacs/user-config:
