Command line lightweight todo tool with readable storage, written in C.

Latest version: v0.2.6

Installation

make install

This command will install todo to $HOME/bin and the manual page to $HOME/man/man1.

If you want to install into some other place than $HOME, invoke make with a prefix or edit the Makefile:

make PREFIX=/usr/local install

Usage

Note: todo will always use ./todo.txt prior to ~/todo.txt for persistent storage.

Usage:
  todo [-h|-v|-a]
  todo (<id> [done|undo|remove])|<task>...
Examples:
  add a task       -  todo Go shopping
  check a task     -  todo 1 done
  undo a task      -  todo 1 undo
  remove a task    -  todo 1 rm/remove
  list undo tasks  -  todo
  list all tasks   -  todo --all
  clear done tasks -  todo clean/cleanup
  clear all tasks  -  todo clear

See also the Unix manual page:

man todo

Storage

todo will always use ./todo.txt prior to ~/todo.txt for persistent storage, if there is a todo.txt in current directory, todo will use it, else todo will try to find ~/todo.txt, if it doesn't exist, todo touches an empty file ~/todo.txt.

So when your are not in home directory, to new a todo, just:

$ touch todo.txt

The storage format is readable, it's the GitHub Flavored Markdown Task list:

- [x] Go shopping
- [ ] Clean the room

Manual

The manual is installed into $(HOME)/man/man1 by default. Provided your man command is configured correctly, invoking man todo should show it.

make todo.1
man ./todo.1

FAQ

  • Why C language? - I just want to write some C code that time.
  • Why not only ~/todo.txt? - I need different todos for different projects.
  • What is this tool created for? - I can manage tasks in my terminal, and read it anywhere(for instance, on github.com).
