Recently, I enjoy using Spacemacs, so I decided to switch to org file from Markdown for writing blog. After several attempts, I managed to let Travis convert org file to HTML. Here are the steps. Install Org Mode plugin First you need to install Org Mode plugin on your computer following the official guide: Nikola orgmode plugin.
