Basically, this is the TextMate Tasks Bundle port for Vim.
Vim-Task in Action
Vim-Task with Monaco font
Vim-Task with Consolas font (which support bold & italic)
Normal installation steps follow the vim tradition: download the zip/tar archive then copy all the directories/files to ~/.vim directory. You can download vim-task zip/tar archive by clicking the “Download Source” button in github.
You can also check out the latest code if you have git installed:
$ git clone git://github.com/samsonw/vim-task.git $ cd vim-task $ rm README.mkd $ cp -rv * ~/.vim
For those guys who use pathogen, the installation should be as simple as a git clone: $ cd ~/.vim/bundle $ git clone git://github.com/samsonw/vim-task.git
Shortcut Key, Key Binding & Customization
By default, I mapped Ctrl+Command+Enter for toggling task status, you can simply remap to what’s the most comfortable for you:
inoremap <silent> <buffer> <C-D-CR> <ESC>:call Toggle_task_status()<CR>i noremap <silent> <buffer> <C-D-CR> :call Toggle_task_status()<CR>
Note, if you find the key binding doesn’t work as expect, please make sure your vim instance was compiled with the +ruby feature.
Compiled with +ruby is not required any more, following +ruby check is optional since this plugin has already been ported to native vim script.
$ vim --version | grep +ruby -python3 +quickfix +reltime +rightleft +ruby +scrollbind +signs +smartindent
File Format & Syntax
The Tasks grammar and commands by default apply to file todo.txt and files with the .task and .tasks extensions. You can customize this by editing ftdetect/task.vim:
autocmd BufNewFile,BufRead todo.txt,*.task,*.tasks setfiletype task
All the formats and syntax is similar with the TextMate Tasks bundle, I just quoted below for your references:
Headers end with a colon (“:”). Pending (uncompleted) tasks start with a hyphen (“-”). Completed tasks start with a checkmark (“✓”). Headers and tasks can be indented for grouping/hierarchy, as seen in the screenshot above.
