org-dashboard - Visually summarize progress in org files
Org Dashboard provides a visual summary of progress on projects and tasks.
For example, if an org file (known by
* Project: Better Health :PROPERTIES: :CATEGORY: health :END: ** Milestones *** [66%] run 10 km/week **** TODO learn proper warmup **** DONE look for a jogging partner **** DONE run 10 minutes on monday * Project: Super Widget :PROPERTIES: :CATEGORY: widget :END: ** Milestones *** [1/6] release 0.1 **** DONE git import **** TODO create github project **** TODO add readme **** TODO publish
Then M-x org-dashboard-display generates the following report and displays it in a new buffer:
health run 10 km/week [|||||||||||||||||||||| ] 66% widget 0.1 release [|||||| ] 18%
A dynamic block form is also supported. Writing the following in an
org file and then running
org-dblock-update, or placing the
cursor on the first line of the block and then typing C-c C-c,
will insert the same report shown above into the block:
#+BEGIN: block-dashboard #+END:
You can customize the following variables:
org-dashboard-files: list of files to search for progress entries; defaults to
org-dashboard-show-category: whether to show or not the project category
org-dashboard-filter: a function that decides whether an entry should be displayed or not
For example, to avoid displaying entries that are finished (progress = 100), not started (progress = 0), or are tagged with "archive", use the following:
(defun my/org-dashboard-filter (entry) (and (> (plist-get entry :progress-percent) 0) (< (plist-get entry :progress-percent) 100) (not (member "archive" (plist-get entry :tags))))) (setq org-dashboard-filter 'my/org-dashboard-filter)
Labels link back to the trees where they were found.
The color of the progress bar is (naively, for now) chosen based on the progress value, from dark red to bright green.
If not set per-tree through a property or per-file through a keyword, the category defaults to the file name without extension. To set category on a per-file basis, you can add the following at the bottom of the org file:
