This page contains some usage information for common tasks when using Todo.txt CLI.

Exclude terms using list

You can exclude words, contexts and projects from a todo list using the - operator, for example, to find things you need to send, except those by email:

$ todo ls "send -email"
14 Send Father's day card
11 Send keys back @postoffice
--
TODO: 2 of 19 tasks shown

This can also be used on projects and operators:

$ todo ls "download update -@home"
02 Download the new vm software @work
09 Update Twitter app @phone
--
TODO: 2 of 19 tasks shown

Note that while on search engines + will force a term to be included, this is a simple search tool and +s are used for projects.
