Taskserver

Thank you for taking a look at Taskserver!

Taskserver is a daemon or service that will allow you to share tasks among different client applications, primarily Taskwarrior.

Taskserver is compatible with Taskwarrior version 2.4.x and later, but works best with the latest Taskwarrior.

Setup

Taskserver setup is complex. Be very careful when following instructions. Here is the only supported Taskserver setup guide. Ignore all others.

taskserver-setup.pdf

For troubleshooting, here is the only supported Taskserver troubleshooting guide. Ignore all others.

taskserver-troubleshooting.pdf

Almost every configuration problem is caused by not following the setup guide above carefully enough, followed by not following the troubleshooting guide carefully enough. If you cut corners or skip steps, it will not work.

Documentation

There is extensive online documentation. You'll find all the details at https://taskwarrior.org/docs/#taskd

At the site you'll find online documentation, downloads, news and more. Additionally there are three man pages installed:

  • taskd(1)
  • taskdctl(1)
  • taskdrc(5)

Support

For support options, take a look at taskwarrior.org/support

Please use pull requests, or alternately send your code patches to support@gothenburgbitfactory.org

Branching Model

We use the following branching model:

  • master is the stable branch. Building from here is the same as building from the latest tarball, or installing a binary package. No development is done on the master branch.

  • 1.2.0 is the current development branch. All work is done here, and upon release it will be merged to master. This development branch is not stable, may not even build or pass tests, and should be treated accordingly. Make backups.

Installing

There are many binary packages available, but to install from source requires:

  • git
  • cmake
  • make
  • C++ compiler, currently gcc 4.7+ or clang 3.3+ for full C++11 support

Download the tarball, and expand it:

$ curl -O https://taskwarrior.org/download/taskd-1.2.0.tar.gz
$ tar xzf taskd-1.2.0.tar.gz
$ cd taskd-1.2.0

Or clone this repository:

$ git clone --recursive https://github.com/GothenburgBitFactory/taskserver.git
$ cd taskserver

In case of errors with libshared (URL pointing to git.tasktools.org):

$ sed -i 's/git.tasktools.org\/TM/github.com\/GothenburgBitFactory/' .git/config
$ git submodule update

Then build:

$ cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release .
...
$ make
...
[$ make test]
...
$ sudo make install
