todotxt-machine suggestions



Hi !

I've tested the lastest version of todotxt-machine, and its very fine, i see that fixed somme bugs, and its mutch more better, great work :-D
Its very good by example if you forget to regist a task of yesterday or of the last weak ! ;-)

But when you create a new task, it autocomplete projects (+project) and contexts ( <at> context) based in tasks in todo.txt file !

Too many times, i had to see a tree of tasks, to see the name of projects and contexts of done tasks, to create a new task, with a existing project and context !
https://github.com/zefilipe/todo.txt-cli/blob/master/addons/tree

An d if todotxt-machine, when create a new task autocomplete projects and contexts based in todo and done tasks, it will mutch more better ... !
That is my suggestion ;-)

Regards

OR filters (todotext.net)



Hi guys,


Amazing stuff, this todo.txt format is changing my life. I love it so much.


Anyway one quick question - I am certain someone has asked this but I've been hunting the internet and on here for about 20 minutes to no avail so I apologise if this has come up.


Is there any way for the preset filters in this application to OR the filter lines together, instead of ANDing them? I like the ability to put "-" before the term to make it an AND NOT, but couldn't think of an effective way to have several terms that can be searched concurrently (for example I may tag tasks with the context <at> garage instead of <at> home, when they're related in context but separate enough - can I list them together somehow in one custom filte r?)


If this is against the accepted methods of the todo.txt format or if there's a more effective way I can tag my notes to get around this please let me know.


Thanks

How does todo.txt handle conflicts?

Hello,

We all know that Dropbox handles file conflicts by simply storing both versions
of the file on either endpoint. Since in most cases, the user directly deals
with the directory listing, this is not a problem: They will see that a new
conflict-file has appeared, and act accordingly.

However, the todo.txt apps don't expose the filesystem for obvious reasons,
effectively "hiding" tasks that were supposed to be synchronized. At least the
original todo.txt Android app doesn't seem to care about Dropbox's
conflict-files. How do you expect users to deal with this? A todo.txt may
contain too many entries for the user to even notice the subtle difference, and
few of them will know what a diffing-tool is.

I've been aware of todo.txt's existence for a few years, but assumed that this
was an issue that has been discussed at great lengths, which is, as it seems to
me, unfortunately not the case.

Thanks,
Markus

Todo.txt Touch iPad bug-report



For some reason project don't show up in the list on the left hand side, only contexts. (I have tried the "Projects" and "All" tabs). Projects appear just fine in the menu when adding new tasks though. Many thanks.

Switch/Chage Contexts - Where to start




I am not a Bash programmer, but I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of where to start in making a script/addon that allows for changing the context of a task from the command line.

Using MYN method and would like to arrange my task in this format <at> CriticalNow <at> OpportunityNow, and   <at> OverTheHorizon instead of using priorities. Any help would be very appreciated.

command line color codes



I want to preserve the color coding when I pipe to text file.  Is there a way to preserve the color coding even if it means converting to postscript so that I have a color coded "email-able" version?


Thank you

How do I get projects to show in list? ipad and iphone



I'm a new user and very excited to get this up and running. I noticed that no projects show up in my list when I add new tasks.


Is there a proper syntax for designating a project? I've tried:


p:name

P:name

p: name

P: name


I'm referring to the list that shows up in the app when you add a new task and you click on either priority, project, context. Priority and context are showing my choices properly. Projects is blank.


Thanks anyone who can help me.


Lorin

iOS Sync, other questions, feedback



Currently using ToDoTxtMac for my desktop client (sorry but the command line stuff is a bit over my head). 


I purchased the todo.txt app from the app store. I have managed to sync successfully via dropbox but some questions remain.


1.  I like to have several to do list files.  I use one for a "dumplist", one as an "icebox" and one as "working on for the next few weeks/months" --analogous to backlog, icebox, and current sprint, respectively.   Is there a way to look at more than one file on the iOS app? 


2.  I think I can figure out a way to keep them all in one file if I had to, i.e. use projects to make a dumplist then review that periodically and change them.  Have to sa y that's really overwhelming for me though and i'd like then the possibility of using filters, especially custom filters to remove those from sight at all times until I'm ready to see them. 


3. This leads me to a feature request that todotxmac has that I feel the loss of on my phone, and that's the ability to only show priority A tasks across all projects, priority b only, and so on.  I especially like that that program can allow me to save custom filters so with just a touch of 1 I see only the A projects.  Is there any hope of getting that in this iOS app? If not, how do others do this? I'm just getting started with this habit so it's not a problem for me to alter my workflow.  


4.  If there's anothe r iOS app that offers these things, even for a fee, could someone point me there?  I'm happy to not request a refund to support the work of this community even if I end up not using the app.  


Thank you all who donate time and energy to code and support this community, I'm so grateful to have these tools.
