minimal task management for hackers.

$ sudo gem install it -s

Note: this project is still under heavy development!


Start by creating a new project folder

$ mkdir project/
$ cd project/

it uses folders as projects, in the same way as git. We start by initializing our project, and adding two tasks.

$ it init
$ it add "refactor spaghetti code"
$ it add "find a better name"

Let's see what we've got now with list:

$ it list

[0] refactor spaghetti code
[1] find a better name

Tasks can be refered to by index 1, 2 or by name. You don't have to type in the full name though:

$ it tag spaghetti @R
$ it done 1

I just went ahead and tagged my first task with @R, and completed my 2nd one. Here's the new list:

$ it list

[0] refactor spaghetti code @R

# recently completed
- find a better name

You can also specify tags when adding new tasks:

$ it add "make pasta" @food @yum @kitchen

And remove tasks:

$ it remove pasta

it creates an .it folder in the directory you initialize your project in. Inside that folder is a database.yml with all your tasks for that project.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
