Switch/Chage Contexts - Where to start
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?
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:
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.
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.
While trying to get `todo.sh` set up, I ran into the issue of finding
the default configuration file. In my case, using MacPorts, the
location of the default file was listed when I installed the port.
Searching the mailing list archives turned up this question
The suggestion to add documentation on the configuration file has merit;
however, the handling of a global configuration file needs some
Reviewing the code, I see the following places are searched for the
1. Line 641: `$HOME/todo.cfg`
2. Line 650: `$HOME/.todo.cfg`
3. Line 659: `$(basename "$0")/todo.cfg`
4. Line 660: `$TODOTXT_GLOBAL_CFG_FILE` (set to `/etc/todo/config` on Line 597).
The first two locations are unlikely to exist if the user does not know
about the `$HOME/.todo/config` file. Location 3 works for a user
running from a copy of the `git` repository. The final location is the
problem as it is dependent on the installation procedure. I know
MacPorts installs to `/opt/local` and Homebrew installs to `/usr/local`.
I am not sure where `yum` or `apt-get` install the files.
My question is then: Is there a way to set the global default
configuration in a system independent way in `todo.sh` or is this
something that the packaging managers will have to handle?
Hi, I like it to get a daily reminder or two whether there are tasks due for today or not. Since I couldn't find anything that will accomplish that, I wrote a shell-script that will do that. Actually, these are two scripts - one if you use mutt, one if you use msmtp. I use those scripts with a cronjob to mail me in the morning and in the evening my todos that are due for the day and in 7 days. You find the scripts here: https://github.com/nielsk/duemail Pull-requests are welcome but since I am very new to the whole thing, it might take a while until I respond to them.

Has anyone explored using todo.txt as an unhosted app? I'm really trying to get all my data back in my hands and am going to start trying to do it with my limited coding skills. I'd love it if anyone wants to help.
