Ridiculous question: how to sign in



Do I really have to give todo.txt my dropbox signon and password? That seems a bit of a security burden for todo.txt team... 


There's very little "how to" about this, so thanks for having this forum.

todo.txt spec: Should blank lines be respected?



Hello!

todo.sh respects blank lines, but it is not explicit in the spec.


There have been some questions re whitespace now and then on the forum. Blank lines is part of this. 


Reading the todo.sh command help, it seems as if blank lines are considered to be of importance (see the -n and -N flags which address preserving blank lines when deleting).



Should blank lines be respected? Or is it ok if tools remove them when completing another (add/delete) operation?



It seems as if implementations differ and it is somewhat annoying. I would prefer it if it was stated in the spec, perhaps as SHOULD to start with.


BR! /m

Todo.txt for iOS 8 (was: Re: Request)



Hi everyone,

Thanks for your patience while we work on fixing Todo.txt for iOS 8's priorities and contexts. I wanted to update you on the status of the bug.

* Thanks to Steven for reporting the bug clearly with a screenshot in our bug tracker, here: https://github.com/ginatrapani/todo.txt-ios/issues/230
* Thanks to Chuck for implementing Steven's suggested solution, which fixes the problem in the simulator and on my iPad 2 and iPhone 4S running iOS 8. (Sadly I don't have the newer devices here to test, but I'm confident in this fix from the tests I have run.)

When I went to iTunes Connect this morning to upload the new version with the fix, the web site gave me a generic error "Unable to process request." Searching through Apple's support forums, I see this is an occasional, transient error on their end. So, in a few hours I will try again. Once I'm able to upload the new version, it will go into review, and when Apple approves it, and it will go out on your devices. 

I will update this post with any new news. Thanks again for your patience.

Gina

I agree with John.  I recognize this is an open source project where developers are more oriented towards Android than iOS, but it would be really helpful if someone with the skillset could help address the problem.  

In its current form you essentially have to treat it like a basic text editor since using many of the functions will crash the app.  The format allows for that to work, of course, but I find myself avoiding the iOS app as much as possible because it is so unstable.  This is really unfortunate, since it has been such a useful app when it works.

The iOS app be updated so that adding a priority, project, etc. does not

queue to be fixed, but sooner would be much better than later.)

App stalls on 'Priority' and 'Context' button

Hello,

I recently setup the todo.txt app on my iphone and mac. I like the simple, sleek desktop and phone app though
I'm having trouble with the paid phone app. It stalls on a greyed out screen with a rectangle at the bottom of
the screen when trying to apply the 'priority' and 'context' to list entries.

Any ideas on this?

Cheers!

New add-on to attach notes to tasks



Hi. I've made an add-on that allows to keep notes attached to tasks. A note is a text file where you can write down anything related with the task. Just one note per task is allowed. The files are stored in a directory called "notes" located in the $TODO_DIR

I'm far from being a bash expert, but I've been using it for some time and at least for me is something handy. Comments and bug reports are welcome.

If someone's interested, you can have it here:
https://github.com/mgarrido/todo.txt-cli/tree/note/todo.actions.d

[Announce] Pay the Piper: Where todos fight distractions!



Apologies if you receive this more than once, I think I sent it the first time from the wrong email address. -- Mike


Do you have trouble remembering to look at your to do list? Ever turn on your computer to accomplish some small task, only to emerge hours later with the task still unfinished but a greater appreciation for cats than you ever dreamed possible? Do you ever wish you could just get a reminder to call the dentist BEFORE you started looking at pictures of your ex on Facebook?


If this sounds like you, then it's time to Pay the Piper!


Pay the Piper protects you from your own bad habits by keeping you away from sites you know are distracting and focusing you back on your task list. Like a web blocker, you decide what sites are distractions to you, and Pay the Piper prevents you from viewing them. Unlike those other blockers, Pay the Piper replaces the distraction with a task from your task list. Completing any of your tasks grants you a few minutes to browse the distracting site. Hey, you've earned it!


Your tasks can be stored in one of two ways: Google Chrome Sync, in which case they'll be available in all your logged-in Chrome browsers, or as a text file in Dropbox. Pay the Piper was built to work with the todo.txt Android and iOS apps so if you alrea dy have one of those you'll find all your tasks stay completely in sync.



All feedback welcome!

Thanks, Mike

Line break issues



Hey all,
I modify my todo.txt file with the CLI, Simpletask, and a customer Zapier function that adds starred tweets to my todo list (a sort of self-hosted Pocket).  I've started seeing this weird line break functionality, where I get a weird upside-down question mark character (in TextWrangler, that is) which copy-pastes as a line break.  The CLI treats it as one, but sometimes it's just not there at all – multiple tasks get appended to the same line.

My sense is that this is a cross-platform linebreak issue, but I don't know quite enough about how they work to figure out more.  Anyone got ideas or a good place to start?

Thanks,
-Harpo Jaeger

Grep -o not supported in Git Bash Shell



Hello, 


I downloaded and installed Git Bash yesterday and then Todo.txt. Most things seem to work fine, but when I tried the commands 'listcon' and 'listproj' I got the following error;


grep: invalid option -- o

Usage: grep [OPTION]... PATTERN [FILE]...

Try `grep --help' for more information.


On inspection the version of grep i n Git Bash (2.4.2) does not seem to support the '-o' flag.


Is there any work around for this?


More info on my system;


OS: Windows 7 64bit

Shell: Git Bash - 3.1.0(1)-release (i686-pc-msys)

TODO.TXT v2.9
