To reduce typing when establishing environment and launching software via the command-line.


The user associates one or more commands with a short keyword.

$ task 3400 --new
> be batman
> be ab12_3400
> maya

At this point, the three commands are run via the shorthand version.

$ task 3400
Launching Maya..


Aside from the main KEY, three ARGUMENTS are made available to operate on the KEY, along with tab-completion.

--new: Capture subsequent commands into KEY
--edit: View and/or modify commands associated with KEY
--notes: View and/or modify notes associated with KEY

No argument

Passing no argument triggers execution of commands associated with KEY. If KEY is not available, an error is thrown.


Capture subsequent ARGUMENTS and associate with KEY.

$ task 3400 --new
> command 1
> command 2
> # No command finishes the capturing.


View and/or modify commands for KEY.

$ task 3400 --edit
> command 1_
> command 2_


View and/or modify notes for KEY.

$ task 3400 --notes
- Fix intersections
- More jiggle
- Add pre-roll

Notes are either entered via this command, or fetched elsewhere.
