Gmail ToDo

Do you use your Gmail inbox as a todo list? You can use this gem to quickly fire yourself a todo from the terminal, precious seconds saved!

Installing

gem install gmail_todo

Building from source

run:

gem build gmail_todo.gemspec
gem install gmail_todo-X.X.X.gem

Usage

from the terminal:

todo <subject> <body>

the string "[ToDo]" will be appended to the subject, I use this to auto filter these emails to my ToDo label and star them.

On first use the app will prompt you for gmail credentials. Your credentials will be stored as yaml in a hidden file in your home directory. If you have 2 factor auth turned on for your gmail account (which you should) then you'll need an app token. You can get a token by going to account -> security -> app passwords of your gmail account.
