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

todotxt.net 3.2.0 - filters, appending text, word wrap and a lot more



Mike ( <at> mjdescy) has put in a massive amount of work into this release, including:
- more preset filters (you can now have up to 9)
- intellisense to the filters window
- 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!

todotxt.sh no colorized output OS X 10.9.5 Terminal.app

Hi!

I've been trying out todotxt,sh again - it's really great and I like it. I am running it on Mac OS X 10.9.5 in
Terminal.app. Perhaps I'm missing something but I'm not getting any colorized output from todo
commands. I don't think it should matter but my default shell is zsh.

I get colorized output from zsh commands.
If I switch to bash, i get colorized output from shell commands like `ls`, since adding `export LSCOLORS=1`
to my .bashrc file.

I'd love to figure out how to get colors working with todo.sh. Any ideas?

Thanks a lot!
CS

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
