The todotxt-CLI has a history in the unix world and mac has a history in both the unix (as macOS X was based on NeXt; a unix) and the mac world (mac 9 and earlier had no unix history). This can lead to some strange edge causes. Call the mac2unix before the CLI call that causes the problem. HTH

Hi, I'm new to Gitter and to todotxt. I love the idea of todotxt, but it seems mainly aimed at opensource developers. I thought I would use it to have a todo list on dropbox and use it via my PC, my iPhone and iPad. However, I couldn't find tools that worked for the iPhone on dropbox.
I am seriously investigating using excel instead. I suspect this will support my basic user level functionality. I would be interested in feedback on using some other tools than basic text editors or open source tools that have limited availability to a non developer. Note, I will probably print off my todo list occasionally to carry around in written form as well.

hi, I am wondering how you can add the priority of a task when you add a task
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
@buscon There's the adda custom action in the add-on directory (which has a fixed priority (A)), or you could use my addpri add-on (which takes a priority: todo.sh PRIORITY "THING I NEED TO DO +project @context").
buscon
@buscon

@inkarkat thank you! that does what I was looking for!

as a possible alternative I found, without using plugins, you write it like this:
todo-txt add "(PRIORITY)" "THING I NEED TO DO"

Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
@buscon Yeah sure, as long as you don't use any features like -t (TODOTXT_DATE_ON_ADD), you can simply prepend the (PRIO) to the text itself. If you're limiting yourself to a basic use of the tool, that can be fine. For advanced uses (e.g. with custom markers and more automation), I would prefer to manipulate the tasks through consistent, higher-level commands (like addpri).
buscon
@buscon
@inkarkat actually my solution was working with -t too. in any case I will probably use addpri, it does exactly what I need
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
@buscon Ah right, there's special handling for keeping the (PRIO) at the beginning when inserting the date; I forgot.
buscon
@buscon
@inkarkat NP, thank you!

I can't install todo.sh properly on MacOS 11.4, in spite of following all instructions. I installed with Homebrew, then configured .todo.cfg to find directory in "/~/Documents/todo" but todo can't find the todo.txt file. Any suggestions much appreciated!
FYI my .todo.cfg directory for todo.txt is set as 'export TODO_DIR=$(/Users/myusername/Documents/todo "$0")' - exactly as in the #comment in the file - and the error I keep getting from the CLI is '/Users/dokoissho/.todo.cfg: line 5: /Users/dokoissho/Documents/todo: Is a directory'

@mroberts1
I've tried putting the todo.txt file in my root directory with the same contradictory result: '/Users/dokoissho/.todo.cfg: line 5: /Users/dokoissho: Is a directory
Fatal Error: is not a directory'
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
The default configuration (export TODO_DIR=$(dirname "$0")) uses the script's directory as the directory; most users want to set their own directory (export TODO_DIR="/Users/gina/Documents/todo"); you seem to have used a mixture of both, with code execution ($(...)) and a static directory. Try export TODO_DIR="/Users/dokoissho/Documents/todo" instead.
Martin Roberts
@mroberts1
@inkarkat Yes that was the problem - just the path solved the problem as you said. Many thanks!

hi, total ubuntu newbie here. kinda got the todo.sh working bc intrigued by the concept. am now trying to get the todo.txt directory changed to my google drive (so it gets synced to other devices). is that possible at all? changing the path in the todo.cfg even to non-cloud folders on my computer doesn't seem to change anything.
sorry if this is dumb.

The easiest way to use it under Ubuntu is to apt install todotxt-cli. Then the todo.sh script is named todo-txt and the configuration file is .todo/config under your home directory. Chaning the path of the todo.txt-directory is something that a lot of people do (me included) so it does work. What went wrong? Are you sure you are changing the correct file? Does changing other configuration in that file work? If so could you post your export TODO_DIR and export TODO_FILE lines?
To get it on google drive I suggest mounting it with rclone: https://github.com/rclone/rclone

Is there an additional list of community projects outside the main website?

if there is, I think its content should be integrated into the main website

Good afternoon everyone, I'm creating a desktop interface for todo.txt and would like to know what I need to have my project attached to todo.txt.org the interface will run on Linux and Windows and maybe MacOS. when I finish the project analyze the possibility of recognizing my project as worthy to be attached to todo.txt.org thanks for your attention, sorry for the poor english.
jason-mehmel
@jason-mehmel
@inacio0196 I'm intrigued! How far along are you into the project?
Rafael Inácio
@inacio0196
@jason-mehmel To tell the truth I've been using
todo.txt for a few months and I've always been thinking how useful it is to me, one day I decided to download sleek but unfortunately I couldn't install it, it just didn't work, my project is called e-todo.txt and it's being done on electron i started it last week and i plan to finish it and add a lot of features.
I already have screens for upcoming and today, I intend to build a javascript lib to manipulate the ~/.todo/todo.txt file itself
jason-mehmel
@jason-mehmel
Ah! If you can get Sleek to work I highly recommend it!
(Not to take away from your own project, though. I'm interested in the features you're talking about!)
Rafael Inácio
@inacio0196
Wonderful, at first I will continue developing and soon when I have an acceptable version with a detailed readme I'll put the link here.
I have doubts as to whether there are restrictions imposed, for example is there anything I can't do using the todo.txt structure?

I have used dropbox for my Todo folder with my todo.txt and done.txt folder. At one time this was easy and simple for me to set up for Windows, Android, and ios applications and devices to share this one folder. That seems to be getting more difficult. with my new pixel 6 I cant find a todotxt task manager application to use
this dropbox folder
are there any application that can readyly use dropbox? Or is there any cloud/cross platform storage applications better than dropbox for these taskmanager applications?

@jason-mehmel

Simpletask is what you want!

https://github.com/mpcjanssen/simpletask-android is the home of it, and there's a dropbox version of the app here: https://mpcjanssen.nl/artifacts/10.9.3/

(I think it's not on fDroid or Google Play to avoid some annoying qualifications those sites maintain, but the app is safe)

Trying to see if I can ping @mpcjanssen on the subject as well!

jason Thanks for being so quick in responding -- I have installed Simpletasks on my old pxl3a and was wonderfull
It worked well with my dropbox account -- it still does-- but when i tried to get the updated version running on my
jsb111
@jsb111
Pxl6 dropbox did not seem to be available. and the other 3 installs available on
Fdroid were not easy for me to install and make usefull. I get the feeling that dropbox has been developing

limitations on its funtionality and its utility -- especially for new installs. I like DB but it seems that i may need to look elsewhere for universally accessable storage.

Never Mind -- I found the DropBox folder and APK from the link you provided, installed the Simpletask application in my pixel 6 and now all is wonderful once again ... Thanks for your help .

@jsb111 No problem! Glad it's working for you.

@jason-mehmel well after a day of simpletask/dropbox functioning, something changed and now the Simpletask can not find the
text files.
jason-mehmel
@jason-mehmel

@jsb111 Sorry to hear that. Is it on Simpletask or Dropbox? Sometimes I've noticed that conflicted files will show up, haven't had a chance to investigate that.

Have you tried browsing to the file via the Simpletask app?

You could also use Simpletask with a syncing app that is just focused on the todo.txt file you're using... that was working for me for a while but I went back to Dropbox for simplicity.

Hi All,

I am now maintaining one of the apps linked to on http://todotxt.org. Old maintainer does not seem to be interested in maintaining it further. I'm searching for a way to update the link on http://todotxt.org. Can anyone please help me here? Any hints are highly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Details: The app is jdotxt. Original link: https://github.com/chms/jdotxt . Last updated 3 years ago. My fork: https://github.com/t7ko/jdotxt . Original link does not even allow to download the app any more -- downloads were hosted on author's personal home page, which is no longer available. In my fork, I'm posting releases to GitHub -- supposed to be much more "permanent".
