Troubleshooting

I get "Fatal Error: Cannot read configuration file /Users/myusername/.todo/config" when launching todo.sh

Create the ~/.todo/config file manually. Here's some example content:

export TODO_DIR="$HOME/Dropbox/todo"
export TODO_FILE="$TODO_DIR/todo.txt"
export DONE_FILE="$TODO_DIR/done.txt"
export REPORT_FILE="$TODO_DIR/report.txt"
export TMP_FILE="/tmp/todo.tmp"
export TODOTXT_DEFAULT_ACTION=ls

Alternatively, if you have cloned the repository, issue cp todo.cfg ~/.todo/config in the todo.txt-cli directory to use the default config file (Linux).
