Powerline Taskwarrior

CI PyPI PyPI

A set of Powerline segments for showing information retrieved from Taskwarrior task manager.

It shows a current context and the most urgent active task.

Requirements

Taskwarrior segments require:

  • task v2.4.2 or later,
  • Python ^3.7 (support for Python 2.7 was dropped)

Installation

AUR

yay -S python-powerline-taskwarrior

PIP

pip install --user -U powerline-taskwarrior

It can also be installed system-wide, but this is usually a bad idea.

Debian

On Debian (testing or unstable), installation can be performed with apt:

apt install python-powerline-taskwarrior

Usage

Activate segments

To activate Taskwarrior segments add them to your segment configuration. See more about powerline configuration in the official documentation. For example, I store powerline configuration in ~/.config/powerline/themes/shell/default.json.

These are available powerline-taskwarrior segments:

  • display current context name

    {
        "function": "powerline_taskwarrior.context",
        "priority": 70
    }
  • display the count of pending tasks

    {
        "function": "powerline_taskwarrior.pending_tasks_count",
        "priority": 70
    }
  • display the most urgent active task

    {
        "function": "powerline_taskwarrior.active_task",
        "priority": 70
    }
  • display the most urgent next task

    {
        "function": "powerline_taskwarrior.next_task",
        "priority": 70
    }
  • obsolete segment displays both of listed above

    {
        "function": "powerline_taskwarrior.taskwarrior",
        "priority": 70
    }

Color scheme

Taskwarrior-powerline requires custom colorscheme to be configured. Add the following to your colorschemes (.config/powerline/colorschemes/default.json):

{
  "groups": {
    "taskwarrior:context": "information:regular",
    "taskwarrior:pending_tasks_count": "information:priority",
    "taskwarrior:active_id": { "bg": "mediumgreen", "fg": "black", "attrs": [] },
    "taskwarrior:active_desc": { "bg": "green", "fg": "black", "attrs": [] },
    "taskwarrior:next_id": { "bg": "brightyellow", "fg": "black", "attrs": [] },
    "taskwarrior:next_desc": { "bg": "yellow", "fg": "black", "attrs": [] }
  }
}

And here you can configure the colors.

See powerline colorschemes docs for more details.

Further customization

If you have a custom name for task command, it should be specified via task_alias argument in the segment configuration.

powerline_taskwarrior.active_task and powerline_taskwarrior.next_task segments accept description_length parameter. It is an integer which represents a maximum length of the description field. If a description is longer than description_length, it is truncated by words.

powerline_taskwarrior.next_task segment accepts ignore_active parameter. If it set to true, the segment will be shown always, regardless of existence of an active task.

{
    "function": "powerline_taskwarrior.next_task",
    "priority": 70,
    "args": {
        "task_alias": "taskwarrior",
        "description_length": 40
    }
}
