Quicktask is a lightweight Vim task management plugin.

Introduction

Quicktask is a lightweight but feature-rich task management plugin designed to easily and effectively track a list of tasks, their added and completed dates, time spent, notes, and so forth. Inspired by the todolist Vim syntax scheme created by Eric Talevich, Quicktask marries sensible and legible text coloration with keyboard shortcuts to keep you typing tasks rather than metadata.

Installation

Quicktask is designed to be deployed as a Pathogen (or Vundle, etc.) bundle. Typically you would simply add the Git repository as a sub-module of your Vim configuration, or clone it into your bundles folder.

If you do not use Git to manage your Vim configuration, you can simply clone the repository into your bundles folder:

$ cd ~/.vim
$ git clone https://github.com/aaronbieber/vim-quicktask.git bundles/vim-quicktask

If you do use Git to manage your Vim configuration and you want to add Quicktask as a submodule, you would instead run these commands:

$ cd ~/.vim
$ git submodule add https://github.com/aaronbieber/vim-quicktask.git bundles/vim-quicktask
$ git submodule init
$ git submodule update

If you are using Windows, it's recommended that you use Cygwin. In Cygwin the process is basically the same except that you would cd into your Vim runtime directory rather than ~/.vim.

Help!

If you are using Pathogen, just run :Helptags after installing the plugin (with a capital "H"). If you are not using Pathogen, you need to run the regular helptags command on the doc folder of the plugin. Normally it would be something like:

:helptags ~/.vim/bundle/quicktask/doc

Once help tags have been generated, you can simply run :h quicktask to open the full manual.
