todo.sh CLI doesn't read config file



Hello,

I've been trying to get todo.sh to work on Ubuntu 14.04.

I'd like to store my todo.txt in a Dropbox folder, e.g. 

/home/blah/Dropbox/todo

So I update the config file like this:

# === EDIT FILE LOCATIONS BELOW ===

# Your todo.txt directory
export TODO_DIR="/home/blah/Dropbox/todo"
export TODO_DIR=`dirname "$0"`

# Your todo/done/report.txt locations
export TODO_FILE="$TODO_DIR/todo.txt"
export DONE_FILE="$TODO_DIR/done.txt"

No matter where I put the config file: it exists as $HOME/.todo/config, as todo.cfg in the same directory as todo.sh, as .todo.cfg in the same directory - it consistently ignores the setting in the config file and creates a todo.txt, done.txt and report.txt in the same dir as todo.sh.

Actually, I want to put todo.sh in my ~/bin directory which is in my $PATH, but I thought at first that this was the reason for todo.sh ignoring the config settings.

So I put it to the $HOME dir and started it from there. It does everything except accessing the todo.txt in the Dropbox folder.

Even if I alias like this:

alias t='/home/blah/todo.sh -d /home/blah/.todo/config'

it completely ignores the setting in the said config file.

Any ideas what could be going wrong here?

Thanks!

Best regards
Arda

Hide task creation date in output



Hi all,
I want to start tracking how long it takes me to do different categories of tasks (e.g. things I add to my reading list vs. shopping list vs. house projects), but I don't want to have the creation date displayed in normal todo.txt CLI output.  I use GeekTool to display my list on my desktop, and it'll get crowded real quick if each task has a start date.  I don't see any existing add-ons to do this – if anyone knows a way to filter it out, that'd be great.  Otherwise, I may try my hand at writing my own add-on!

Should I backup .bashrc before upgrading Debian?



Hi everyone,

I've installed todo.txt on Debian Wheezy & defined the 't' alias.

Do I need to backup .bashrc before upgrading to Deb Jessie so that settings remain unchanged?

Thanks,
Adrian

Creating a symbolic link to todo.cfg



I installed the `Todo.txt CLI` with Homebrew:


$ brew install todo-txt


I then attempted to create a new task:


$ todo.sh add "Test"

Fatal Error: Cannot read configuration file /Users/Mike/.todo/config


I can fix this by creating a symbolic link to todo.cfg:


$ sudo ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/todo-txt/2.10/todo.cfg /Users/Mike/.todo/config


But, I'm guessing that the symlink will break the next time Brew updates the todo-txt program. Is this the case?


If so, is there a more elegant way to overcome this?


Mike

TodoTxtMac 1.5.0 - Great GUI client for Mac



If you are on the Mac platform, please consider trying TodoTxtMac, which is a free, open source native Cocoa todo.txt app. I have put a lot of work into it since its initial release, about a year ago, and it has matured into a fast, attractive, and stable GUI client with a ton of features. It is keyboard-centric, like Todotxt.net on Windows (which I also contribute to). If you tried it before and passed on it, please try it again. I'd love more users.

using todo.txt with other tools



Greetings,


I am getting back into the habit of using my todo list and I have created several IFTTT recipes to sync events with my todo list. 


For example if i create a new Google Calendar event it is added to my todo.txt. I also create a daily review item. I am looking to see if there is any addon services to do the opposite - add a Google Calendar event when I create a new todo item?


I've looked at the addons and I can't find what I am looking for - I don't know if I am not looking hard enough or if it doesn't exist. Or if I can hack a solution using something like IFTTT, Pipes, or Zapier.


Thanks,

Shane

- the negation of due-date filters, eg "-due:future" will show you all tasks that do not have a due date set after today
- appending text to multiple selected tasks (shortcut: t)
- selecting multiple tasks and copy to clipboard
- optional case-insensitive intellisense
- optional word-wrap
- many, many small UI tweaks and bugfixes

A big thanks to <at> Piscean and <at> adamzolotarev for their contributions too.

Not optimized for iPhone 6



In the iOS Appstore, the Todo.txt Touch app is incorrectly described as being "optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus," but this is incorrect (the app is running in scaled mode).

Does Gina have plans to update to native resolution so that it properly displays on larger iPhones? If not, she really should remove this incorrect claim under compatibility.

I don't download apps that aren't compatible because they are an eyesore and everything is scaled up and mildly pixelated (including the keyboard), making for a poor user experience. I like Todo.txt and used it years ago on Android and with the CLI. I stopped using it when I switched to iOS because the original green design was too ugly. But now the design looks clean and I would love to start using Todo.txt again across devices.

Does anyone know how difficult this would be to update? All other apps that I use updated months ago. I assume it can't be much of a change considering the simple UI of this app. This SO link might help if she needs some suggestions: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25754942/how-to-enable-native-resolution-for-apps-on-iphone-6-and-6-plus

Thanks,

Branden

Tarball releases should preserve executable bits


Hi,

I'm a huge fan of the todo.txt idea. It's all very well-done. I just
have one nit: it'd be nice if tarball'd releases preserved the
executable bit on todo.sh. Then you could just tell people to extract
with tar, instead of having to invoke chmod. Based on the group
ownership in the archive, I'm guessing you're on Mac OS X, right? On my
GNU Tar, executable bits are preserved when creating tarballs, and based
on the FreeBSD tar(1) manpage I found, it seems like that version
preserves executable bits, too. Perhaps Apple has patched FreeBSD tar to
do weird things?

I'd go ahead and report a GitHub Issue, but apparently I need to check
with this list first. Hence this email.

Thanks,

Alex Jordan

Non latin todo text file format



Hello, 

How does the todo.txt file format work with non latin character sets ? Are there rules for languages like Japanese, Traditional Chinese, etc. regarding the fixed tokens ?


e.g, does a Japanese user need to mark a completed task with 'x' or can one use a kanji/katakana character ? Idem for priority (X) markers.

What if one of these tokens need more than one character ? 

Are there todo.txt-related tools that already deal with these languages ?


Thanks in advance,

Philippe

No colors - OS X 10.9 - Terminall.app - zsh default shell



Sorry - I ain't a computer genius...


I have zsh as my default shell running inside OSX 10.9's Terminal app. Todo.txt is not displaying any colors. I assume this has got something to do with the bash being called by the todo.sh script. But, I ain't a computer genius...


Any suggestions on how to get colors working?


Cheers!
