Examples

Looking at tasks

>>> from taskw import TaskWarrior
>>> w = TaskWarrior()
>>> tasks = w.load_tasks()
>>> tasks.keys()
['completed', 'pending']
>>> type(tasks['pending'])
<type 'list'>
>>> type(tasks['pending'][0])
<type 'dict'>

Adding tasks

>>> from taskw import TaskWarrior
>>> w = TaskWarrior()
>>> w.task_add("Eat food")
>>> w.task_add("Take a nap", priority="H", project="life")

Completing tasks

>>> from taskw import TaskWarrior
>>> w = TaskWarrior()
>>> w.task_done(46)

Being Flexible

You can point taskw at different taskwarrior databases.

>>> from taskw import TaskWarrior
>>> w = TaskWarrior(config_filename="~/some_project/.taskrc")
>>> w.task_add("Use 'taskw'.")

Looking at the config

>>> from taskw import TaskWarrior
>>> w = TaskWarrior()
>>> config = w.load_config()
>>> config['data']['location']
'/home/threebean/.task'
>>> config['_forcecolor']
'yes'
