Ruby API and command line client for Remember The Milk.
Command line usage
The sole motivation for this project was a quick way to capture to-dos
from the command line. As such, I've chosen a chosen a very short
command name of
ru (something I'd normally never allow myself to do).
All arguments are joined with spaces and used to invoke Remember The
Milk's Smart Add
rtm buy milk #errand
Browser based authentication is triggered the first time
ru is run,
and the resulting token is cached in
I was originally planning to add support for the full range of operations possible in Remember The Milk, but after pondering the interface, this seems unlikely. I just can't imagine myself forgoing the web interface in favor of something like:
rtm --complete 142857 # Ain't gonna happen
The API is a bit more fleshed out than the command line interface, but still incomplete, under-documented, and under-tested (I have additional integration tests I won't publish because they are specific to my RTM account). You'll need to familiarize yourself with Remember The Milk's API. In particular, you need to understand what a timeline is.
interface = Rumember.new(api_key, shared_secret) interface = Rumember.new # Uses built in credentials interface.dispatch('test.echo') account = interface.account(auth_token) account = interface.account # browser based and cached account = Rumember.account # Rumember.new.account shortcut timeline = account.timeline # cached timeline = account.new_timeline # fresh each time timeline.smart_add('buy milk #errand') list = timeline.lists.first task = list.tasks.first transaction = task.complete transaction.undo
