Workflowish

Build Status

Simple TODO list plugin for Vim, inspired by Workflowy.com

Screenshot

Why?

It started with a tweet

Here's what was "attached":

# vi: fen foldmethod=indent :
* lol
  * lol
    * wat
    * wut
+---  2 lines: * wee ------------------------------------------------------
    * meh
  * ouch

Then I started hacking on a little plugin-ish thing and came up with workflowish

folded

How?

By defining a simple syntax in Vim and using brilliant folding capabilities workflowish can simulate 99% of Workflowy's features.

Features?

  • searching (Vim is pretty good at it)
  • deleting (as above)
  • folding and a zoom/focus mode
    • zq to focus on current item / toggle off
    • zp move focus to parent item
    • za toggles folding. See Vim wiki: Folding
  • notes (just add \ in the beginning of the line to start a comment)
  • vimgrep for filtering lines
  • todos:
    • a todo which is not completed is a line which starts with *
    • completed todo starts with a -
  • convert from workflowy plain text export
    • in a .wofl file or after :set ft=workflowish, run :call workflowish#convert_from_workflowy() to convert the whole buffer
  • split windows in vim makes it easy to organize big lists

Thanks to the long running tradition, workflowish files have .wofl extension.

Installing

Use Tim Pope's Pathogen.

New to Pathogen? It's easy. You "install a plugin" by putting its files in a directory. i.e. cd ~/.vim/bundle && git clone https://github.com/lukaszkorecki/workflowish but please, read the Pathogen README.)

Optional configuration tweak

This is not necessary for most users, but if you're a perfectionist you can do it. Add this to your .vimrc to fix an edge-case with folding single-items:

autocmd BufWinLeave *.wofl mkview
autocmd BufWinEnter *.wofl silent loadview
