@ransome1
@jason-mehmel Your ideas from both Github topics have been included in https://github.com/ransome1/sleek/releases/tag/v0.2.3. Feel free to try it out

@jason-mehmel

@ransome1 Works great! I've also got it via snap on Ubuntu 20.04 so it updated automatically there this morning!

Thank you for this app! I like the fact that it's multi-platform as well; I've been looking to share a todo.txt process with some folks using different OS's. I'll let you know if we discover anything in that process!

@jason-mehmel
I'll keep using it, flag any bugs I find, and if I think of more features I'll let you know. Also, please ping me if you want some specific testing.

@ransome1
@jason-mehmel thanks for your support, Jason. I appreciate it.

No problem!

@ransome1 Had another functionality idea, this one around suggested or autocompleted contexts and projects when making new tasks or editing old ones.

@ransome1
Hi @jason-mehmel, sorry I didn't see your latest comment. But anyway feel free to check a little prototype and let me know if this goes into the right direction: https://github.com/ransome1/sleek/issues/7#issuecomment-736516170

@jason-mehmel
It worked great!
If anyone else is reading this, I encourage you to try out @ransome1's Sleek. Particularly with what he's added, it's basically doing all the things I need from a todo.txt app!

Hello everyone here! Just wanted to say @ransome1 I’m really enjoying Sleek. I read the message from @jason-mehmel and decided to try it. Congrats for your work.

Hi. @inkarkat I finally finished the add-ons I told you about weeks (months?) ago: https://github.com/silasdb/d ; https://github.com/silasdb/due
thanks for the help!
not sure if you (or someone else?) want to add them to todotxt.org add-ons page
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat

Hey @silasdb; great work, and thank you for publishing the results so that others can reuse them! As a wiki page, the todotxt.org add-ons page should be editable by everyone, so go ahead and add links to your work.

For my own configuration, I've achieved something similar, but I chose a different approach; I have a dateex extension of the date command, and I'm injecting this into all of todo.txt via a shell date() { dateex "$@"; }; export -f date function in todo.cfg. So I don't need a custom add-on like your d (but I think the way you've implement that as a wrapper is quite elegant), but I'm limited to generic dates (due:tomorrow) and cannot use shortcuts like due:+1.

Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
The obvious thing that I forgot to mention here (but I think had mentioned earlier already) is that for those date expansions to work, I override the built-in add action, and process any m:marker or m:(marker with spaces) syntax by expanding human-readable or relative dates (and also relative task references), via this script. I could directly use my custom dateex there, but by overriding the original date command, it automatically also gets used in other add-ons (for example, I use a schedule command for tasks due in the future).
Silas
@silasdb
@inkarkat this is nice! Didn't you publish it? I was looking for something like that but I don't recall to have seen it in the add-ons page. I'll take a look at that before publishing d. Thanks!
BTW, d is such a small name that is easy to write but difficult to reason about. Do you see any problem with that?
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
@silasdb If there's a more descriptive longer name, that would be better. Though it should be trivial to rename, anyway. That's also the problem with my own setup; many of those commands are connected and dependent on each other, so it's hard to use just a few of them without adopting the whole setup. The code has been out there on GitHub for several years; I haven't received much feedback on it yet.

Trying to resolve the following: creation of todo.txt.bak file. I have been using Todo.txt for some time and just started using CLI on Linux Mint XFCE. Since then, the todo.txt.bak get created and IFTTT recurring "appends" are posted to that file and not todo.txt. I am using Dropbox for file location. All other devices, Android, Windows 10 (work), Chrome Extension are then not updated. Is there something to change with the CLI? Thanks in advance!

thanks for the kind words. If you find any bugs or if you miss an important function, let me know: https://github.com/ransome1/sleek

@inkarkat
@kvnmck1986_twitter Have a look at https://github.com/todotxt/todo.txt-cli/discussions/327; there's a link to a workaround in there. And please comment if you think that such a feature should be built-in.

is it allowed to have whitespace at the beginning of the line, before the format rules?
Ciarán
@bubonicfred
does anyone know the syntax for exporting to ical using topydo?
matrixbot
@matrixbot
pablito1755 Ciarán (Gitter): I'm not familiar with the ical format, but topydo doesn't appear to have any built in commands to "export" per se. Could something be done with the -F option of the "ls" command to format the output?
matrixbot
@matrixbot
pablito1755 @arc
Ciarán
@bubonicfred
Possibly, it's not a huge deal breaker for me, it does list outputting to ical in the docs, but doesn't explain how beyond requiring the calendar dependancy
matrixbot
@matrixbot
pablito1755 Arcturus (Gitter): The original set of formatting rules are here : https://github.com/todotxt/todo.txt There is nothing explicitly mentionned about a whitespace at the start of the line. I would imagine it depends on individual client implementations. Some will surely be more forgiving than others.
pablito1755 I hadn't noticed that before, but per the docs it would seem "ls -f ical" should do it.
pablito1755
-f : Specify the OUTPUT format, being 'text' (default), 'dot' or 'ical' or
'json'.
...
 * 'ical' - iCalendar (RFC 2445). Is not supported in Python 3.2. Be aware
            that this is not a read-only operation, todo items may obtain
            an 'ical' tag with a unique ID. Completed todo items may be
            archived.

Ah cool, I'll give that a shot

@arcturus140
@matrixbot thank you, i'll make my regex more forgiving then
Ciarán
@bubonicfred
Hmm, so the todotxt spec implies, but does not explicitly state that contexts should be lower case
Arcturus
@arcturus140
@bubonicfred contexts can be any case

hello, im looking for a way to output my tasks into a csv. googling for this is really hard because it gives me 1000s of corporate websites that promise to instruct how to convert a txt file to a csv file. any pointers
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
@7596ff The todo.txt format itself has very little rigid structure (basically just 4 fields: priority/done marker, end-date, start-date, task text). What's your motivation for the CSV format, and what fields do you need there?
Cassandra McCarthy

@inkarkat i have every star trek episode as an entry and I want to graph them by show and month watched
ive found some libraries that ill probably end up writing my own script for, which is probably the easiest solve
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
@7596ff Ah, interesting! So you need the done date (or at least its month) and extract the show from the task text, right? Since this is a straightforward line-to-line translation, sed or awk should be enough to parse and re-format as CSV. You can indeed write your own small add-on for it; this would allow a convenient todo.sh trek2csv > stats.csv invocation.

if todo.txt has a completed task: x 2021-03-15 2021-03-15 +p100 test it is listed under todo.sh listproj command. I am building my own solution but i think this command should not list completed projects. What do you think?
