adaschmaZachariah Aslam (Gitter): sounds like you are looking for https://github.com/amcintosh/todo.txt-cli/tree/google-tasks-addon/.todo.actions.d
grepet 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.
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.

@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.
Hello @silasdb! The
_list function is exported and can be used by add-ons to output tasks with the common numbering and formatting. For task ordering, there's the
TODOTXT_SORT_COMMAND hook. So, a minimal add-on could set its own sorting command (
awk, or similar) and then invoke the built-in listing of the todo.txt file:
TODOTXT_SORT_COMMAND='awk ...' _list "$TODO_FILE" "$@"
Here's a simple but complete example from my own add-ons.
_listrenders the task numbers based on the passed lines, that does not work; the numbering would be off. However, because completely empty lines are suppressed, blanking out those lines that you don't want (but keeping the newline to maintain the right numbering) will do what you want.
dueadd-on has (more or less) the same functionality as the original Python one, I would keep the name; in the end, what's most important is how you best remember the add-on name. The add-on directory also lists several alternatives with the same name.
