Hi. I just installed todo.txt-cli and the Android app Simpletask, after recommendation in #todo.txt-android. I notice that tasks added by Simpletask get prefixed with the date it is added. Simpletask also has an option for due date and threshold date. Are these "extensions" to the todo.txt-format, or is it also supported by the cli, just that I didn't find it?

@kaushiknfs
@aweibell This should more likely go to simpletask gitter. Dating new tasks is configurable via settings and both due: and t: are valid extensions.

@aweibell
ok, thanks, @kaushiknfs

Hi! Is this an official todo.txt chat room? I think it should be mentioned at todotxt.org instead of mailing list. Submitted a PR here todotxt/todotxt.github.io#28

@shubhamtewari
is this room active?
Kirill Goncharov
@xuhcc
Not very active. But todo.txt website now points to it as a main place for community discussions
shubhamtewari
@shubhamtewari
there aren't a lot of people here either. is there a purpose to this gitter?
stumbles across todo.txt, really liked the idea. wanted to implement my own version of it.
Kirill Goncharov
@xuhcc
I also discovered todo.txt just a few months ago. I guess that the purpose of this gitter is to discuss various todo.txt apps and productivity practices. For more technical questions, github seems more appropriate (https://github.com/todotxt/todo.txt).

Hi - I'm looking for a solution which enables me to manage todos in vim but also take notes...I've seen some notes plugin for todo, but it looks like the notes are stored somewhere else and I'm not sure if they are really linked to the tasks per se...any experiences/recommendations?

Why does the todo.txt format care so much about a task's creation date?
Benjamin Réthoré
@bnthor
Hi there, does anyone know about a richer version of todo.txt that can handle 'subtasks' or 'steps to completion'? I'd also like notes/comments on tasks (md or plain text)... I know the point of todo.txt is simplicity but using a format like JSON or CSV could allow more features while staying portable
shubhamtewari
@shubhamtewari
I feel todo.txt needs to be updated
a nice shell based overhaul
Kirill Goncharov
@xuhcc
@seanrmurphy_twitter I'm using Joplin (https://joplinapp.org/) for organizing notes. It's not a simple plain-text system as todo.txt, but they are similar in spirit (offline-first and can be used from a terminal).

@zak13362
Is there any way to sync todotxt with any other task management software? Or do I need to write my own? For example sync my todotxt with google tasks so I can use assistant with it

I’ve been using StandardNotes. Within SN Extensions allow for additional functionality, like code editors, lists, markdown, etc. I dream of a todotxt extension in SN. Would be a terrific integration - and allow for fully encrypted end-to-end todotxt files.

Hello everyone nice to meet you,
today I tried to automate some tasks e.g. recurring tasks in my todo.txt file, but i didn't find a proper solution. Does anyone here uses recurring tasks in his or her todo.txt ?
matrixbot
@matrixbot
xuhcc Simpletask and several other apps support the rec key-value tag, e.g. rec:1w (this will copy task to the next week upon completion).
Max Buchholz
@1Maxnet1
@matrixbot Thank you very much :thumbsup: I'll have a look at that.
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
@1Maxnet1 I have written this add-on for myself. It requires hooking into the do action to apply the recurrence.
Max Buchholz
@1Maxnet1
Thank you too @inkarkat I'll have a look at that too. Originally I thought of an automation tool e.g. n8n.io that offers a interface for a todo.txt file. In the first step this would include adding recurring tasks once a week to my todo.txt and increase the Priority if they are still on the list after a week. But anyway thanks I'll have a look into your proposals and have a look what I can do with it.
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
@1Maxnet1 Apparently, there are many use cases around recurrence. What you just mentioned could be done via a simple scheduler / cron job. The nice thing about todo.txt is that its "interface" is trivially simple, and very amenable for processing with grep et al. The main motivation for my add-ons is that the recurrence only starts when the current task is done. So if I have a weekly task, but I'm on vacation for several weeks, I won't get a lot of duplicate tasks; the currently open one will linger and then triggers the creation of a clone once it's done.
Max Buchholz
@1Maxnet1
Yeah absolutely. I will have to check which solution will fit into my workflow. Thanks for your advices.

I'm looking for a spec on the filters, specifically I want a filter for things due within a month, within 7 days, and due this week.
@inkarkat , I agree: while we can do some things via cron, and actually having the recurrence processing done daily in cron is a good model, there are many things that shouldn't recur until previous event is done.
Michael Richardson
@mcr
I am using the todo.txt chrome extension, is there a way to open the page with a specific filter loaded? I want to have a frame with three or four views visible.

@jbb23
Does anyone print their todo lists? I'm only able to do it from the text file (completely unsorted) or the application where the font is something like 4 point (although the due dates are 20 point font) and I can't read it without a magnifying glass. :)
Michael Richardson
@mcr
I don't print it, but I guess printing the text file isn't very pretty?

@jbb23
I was able to make it better by removing grouping in the options. Not great but the next choice was install a terminal emulator and use the CLI...

Hello, I am newly learning about CLI todo programs including Todo.txt and the GettingThingsDone methodology.

Question: Has anyone also tried the program Taskwarrior? I want to know how Taskwarrior and Todo.txt compare in terms of syncing and app options.

Basically, I would like to use a program that can be easily interfaced with via CLI on my computer, but also syncs up well to an app on my phone.

How do you guys keep the file syncronized between a phone and a PC? (Anrdoid + Win/Ubuntu)

Dropbox is still working fine for me, and supported by the Simpletask app on Android.

Hi guys
Is there a way I can synchroise todotxt and taskwarrior. I have tasks in both the apps and I'm now trying to unify my workflow using only one app
Is there a way I can synchronise them?

Hello everyone - does anyone know if there is a way to extend listproj so that it lists the projects in done.txt as well as todo.txt?
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat

@newmanth_twitter Yes, this is covered. todo.sh -v -v help reveals this environment variable:

TODOTXT_SOURCEVAR=\$DONE_FILE   use another source for listcon, listproj

To include both current and done sources, define a Bash array:

TODOTXT_SOURCEVAR='("$TODO_FILE" "$DONE_FILE")' todo.sh listproj

You can also put the export TODOTXT_SOURCEVAR=... into your .todo.cfg to make it permanent.

@newmanth_twitter
Thanks @inkarkat
@jbb23 For printing, I use projectivew and pipe it to a file which I then print using this: todo projectview > test_print
