The 15 non-H atoms of the title compound, C11H12N2O2, are approximately coplanar, the r.m.s. deviation being 0.145 Å. The major deviation from coplanarity is seen in a twist between the ethene (E configuration) and pyrrole rings [C-C-N-C torsion angle = -8.26 (18)°]. The carbonyl O and cyano N atoms are syn to each other. In the crystal, supramolecular linear tapes linked by C-HO and C-HN interactions are further connected by C-H(pyrrole) interactions.
