todo.rb

Command-line todo manager

This is a port of my todoapp written in shell. That todo app is similar to the famous one by Gina Trapani, except that it added various features including sub-tasks, and notes.

I may not make this application as feature-rich as the shell version, however I needed to do this so I stop writing command-line programs using shell (portability issues across BSD and GNU versions of all commands). The shell version used sed extensively.

The fun things about this app, is that I am having to write ruby code that will give me sed's functionality (subset of course). Some of the stuff is present in sed.rb and is heavily being rewritten and improved as I go along.

The TODO file output is TODO2.txt and is a plain text file. A TAB separates the task number from the Task. I use task numbers, since I may refer to tasks elsewhere. Gina's app never saved a task Id but kept showing them.

After this, I will port over my bug tracker, bugzy.txt, which uses a TAB delimited file. It's a cool app to use for bug tracking - you should try it out. I will possibly use sqlite instead of screwing around with a delimited file.

Features

  1. multiple todo lists (per directory)
  2. subtasks (recursive delete or status update)
  3. priorities - (A) (B)
  4. status - [ ], [x], [@] etc
  5. tag - @WORK
  6. project - +myproj
  7. component - @comp1
  8. notes attached to task
  9. delete tasks
  10. archive completed tasks
  11. colored or plain output
  12. show or hide completed tasks (default: hide)
  13. Search, filter, sort tasks by priority (default) or task id.
  14. Renumber the file

File format

  1. The file format is almost identical to the output except that there is a TAB after the task number.
  2. Notes are saved on same line as task, but displayed on another line with asterisk prefix.
