A very very simple task manager. I am hoping to turn this into a more comprehensive tool, but for now it just keeps track of a list of tasks. Note that it will create a .yml file wherever you store it, which is how it will propagate the tasks.
These examples assume you have this script set up to run as
There are 5 ways to use this script:
- List out the tasks with
$ task [cmd]where cmd is 'show' , 'list' , 'all' , or 'display'
Create a new task with
$ task [cmd] [position] [task]where cmd is 'new' , 'add' , 'create' , or 'touch'
The position will default to the last element. Examples:
$ task add Finish assignment for Friday
$ task create 0 Pick up milk
Reorder the task list with
$ task [cmd] [from index] [to index]where from command is 'mv' , 'move' , 'switch' , 'swap' , 'prioritize' , 'reprioritize' , 'pr' , 'promote' , or 'emphasize'
The to index will default to zero, so that prioritizing any given task will cause it to become the first task in the list if a destination is not specified.
- Delete a task with
$ task [cmd] [index]where cmd is 'del' , 'delete' , 'complte' , 'finish' , 'done' , 'rm' , 'destroy' , or 'mark' Example:
$ task del 0will mark off the task in index 0
- Clear the task list with
$ task [cmd]where cmd is 'cl' , 'clear' , 'clean' , 'wipe' , 'erase' , 'delete-all' , 'delete_all' , 'destroy-all' , 'destroy_all' , or 'reset'
- Get help with
$ task [cmd]where cmd is anything not in the above list (ie
$ taskhelpwill work) The help command simply prints out the case statement that determines how to handle the input
This code is unmaintained.
If you do something interesting with it, let me know so I can be happy.
