Todo.txt app/CLI + nvAlt



Hi folks,


I'm trying to access my todo.txt file in two ways:

  • Through the android app / CLI
  • Through nvAlt / notational velocity, a text-based notetaking tool
I store all my notes as individual text files in a /txt folder in my Dropbox. If I also want my todo.txt to be part of that folder, can I just add export TODO_DIR="/Dropbox/txt" to the config file? Will that create problems with the other files in the directory?

Thanks for any help you can provide. Great app.

list all project task as default action



I tryed to set


export TODOTXT_DEFAULT_ACTION=ls +project


so that the default action is to list all the task tagged with +project.

However, this seems to not work, and I get an error.


Defining an alias in .bashrc does not seem to work, either.

Any suggestions?


-Alessandro

Help please

I tried to install the todo program on my computer when the book lifehacker first came out. I couldn't do it. 

Then I bought the book upgrade your life and the scripts wouldn't work. 

I may need someone to handhold me walking through setting this up on my computer. 

I am running an HP proseries laptop on win7. 
I would really appreciate it if someone could write a step by step email for me to follow. Thx

Seeking a large, complex todo.txt file example



I'm learning Todo.txt and am seeking a larger (complex, if applicable?) todo.txt file example much longer than http://todotxt.com/todo.txt.  Can anyone provide one?


I'm working to create a converter between todo-management apps, and I want to see the narliest thing that Todo.txt's got.

Seeking Todo.txt add-ons: SHA and comment-lines support



Before trying to code this myself, I'm seeking the following Todo.txt functionality enhancement, via existing add-ons (or whatever):

  1. Unique-ID-per-task support, like the SHA's in https://github.com/sjl/t. Suggestions?
  2. How does one employ 'pre_filter_command' as per https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/todotxt/conversations/messages/4130 to implement comment lines?  A quick look through the docs didn't (yet) find anything meaningful.


I'm brand new to Todo.txt, so please pardon my syntax butchering, ignorance, or the like.

Missing documentation on config file



I've installed (via homebrew) and followed the steps in the Quick Start Guide: ginatrapani/todo.txt-cli


Trouble is when I run any command says: Fatal Error: Cannot read configuration file /Users/suki/.todo/config


No mention in the wiki or README about a config file or it's format. If the CLI is dependent on this file it needs to be explained in the guides and the README. It would seem that the Quick Start guide is missing the "Setup a config file" step.


Advice?

iOS 8 Beta... Does it crash?



I haven't purchased the app yet but I have upgraded my phone to iOS 8 beta (iOS developer). My question is has anyone else tried the iOS app on the beta to see if it crashes or not?


I'm willing to be a tester if needed.

Due times and notifications for due dates?

Hi,

if I understand it correctly there is a defined standard for due-dates. Iirc it is "due:YYYY-MM-DD"
Is there already one for due times? Like "due:YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM"?

Does anybody know if someone already built a script in conjunction with a cronjob/launchd to get
desktop-notifications when a task is due? In OS X this could be done via terminal-notifier I guess but I
couldn't find anything.
I think something like a script that checks for due-dates and if a task is due, it will send a notification.
And then a cron-job that runs the script once or twice a day. Is there something like that out there?

Cheers,

Niels

Todotxt.net & threshold filtering



Hey all,
Apologies if this has been asked before; couldn't find it in the archives.  Wondering how to filter tasks with threshold date in the future in Todotxt.net.  Thanks!

Clarification on spaces before "+" and " <at> "



Hi,


While working on my gnome-shell extension for todo.txt, I got some bug reports where "name-f52GMkFzgz/6V6G2DxALlg@public.gmane.org" is detected as belonging to context "something" or for example "do this+that" as belonging to project "that".

Now, my feeling says this is wrong, but I don't find any reference in the syntax saying that the "+" or " <at> " sign should be preceded by a space character to be a valid project or context.


What are  your thoughts on this, can I safely assume this space should be present?

Webapp you can serve to your private LAN to view/edit todo.txt data



I don't want work todos in Dropbox, but wanted to access my stuff from a phone/tablet when connected to my home router.

So I wrote www.github.com/mstave/tdg/todo_server.py

Needs python and flask ("pip install flask")

python todo_server.py on some computer on your lan, then you can go to thatcomutername:5942 to get the web UI.

At most, it's as secure as your LAN and flask.   The source is there, feedback/tweaks welcome.
