And I don't remember how wel localized the dropbox code is in todotxt
It should not be hard

I have no android experience, tbh
Know any android devs who might want to help out? Specially since it's hacktoberfest right now
Mark Janssen
@mpcjanssen
I think if PRs start to be merged again there are plenty of people who can do it, but who now hesitate because the project seems stale
Only problem is that merging PRs will still result in a non-functioning app at the moment.
Ali Karbassi
@karbassi
@mpcjanssen all valid concerns. I agree that there needs to be a champion for the android project.
@ginatrapani Could you tweet out that we're looking for 1 or 2 maintainers for the Android project?

> todo.sh add "test item"
Fatal Error:  is not a directory

Hi. Is it possible to not show summary in the end then I run todo.sh ls?
I mean this:
--
TODO: 14 of 14 tasks shown
Frans Jaspers
@Fransz
@ilzichio try:
todo.sh ls | head -n-2

Any way to colorize tags?

@dimonomid
Hi. First of all, thanks a lot for your work on that awesome tool, it makes my life better. The only feature I desperately miss right now is to be able to add and prioritize an item as a single (and preferably simple) command. Ideally I want to have commands like aa (add and prioritize as A), ab (add and prioritize as B), ac, etc. Is that possible?
so when I want to add an A item, it would be t aa Do this and that
PaulMansfieldVibepay
@PaulMansfieldVibepay
@dimonomid Sounds like you need to start looking at addons have a look here https://github.com/todotxt/todo.txt-cli/wiki/Todo.sh-Add-on-Directory#add-and-do--add-and-pri-in-one-step for Ginas adda to add with priority (A). Also sounds like you are being tripped up by bash and (A), just quote the item including the priority t add "(A) Do this and that"

@PaulMansfieldVibepay
@coteyr I use a version of the final filter documented on the mailing list https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/todotxt/conversations/messages/5101
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
@dimonomid My addpri action takes the priority as the first argument; you could build your own aa, ab, ... actions on it: https://github.com/inkarkat/todo.txt-cli-ex/blob/master/actions/addpri

Thanks guys!

@asteres
Is there a newer iteration of todotxt? A lot of projects don't seem to have updates since ~2017. I know Postlight said they'd work on mobile apps and that fell through.

@sachinmukherjee
I have just install todo.txt-cli but when i run todo.sh add todo.sh add "THING I NEED TO DO +project @context" it gives me this error Fatal Error: Cannot read configuration file /home/sachinmukherjee/.todo/config. Why this is happening?

@jecogeo
Hi All. My Arch Linux package manager (yay, in this case) keeps todotxt in the list of outdated packages, even when its up to date. Any thoughts?
maco1717
@maco1717
I am wondering if there is any easy way of configuring todo.txt-cli to add the time on the creation and completion date?
Paul Mansfield
@the1ts
@maco1717 if you add export TODOTXT_DATE_ON_ADD=1 to your todo.cfg file it will add date at start of todo item. I think when you run todo.sh do $item_number it puts in the date "done" in the done.txt file already. So you have "x 2020-01-27 2020-01-26 test item" showing 26th when I created and 27th when I completed the item I labelled as test item
maco1717
@maco1717
Thanks. I meant Time, not just date.

Hi all, I'm wondering, is this repository still maintained? I'm noticing that the last commits to master were several years ago. For my workflow and an addon I want to make, I'm hoping to change the behavior of archive slightly so it respects TODOTXT_PRESERVE_LINE_NUMBERS where possible. I'm wondering if it's worth it to open an issue and PR, or if it would be better to instead just use my own fork of the script? Thanks.
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
Hello @jeresch, yes, it's been a bit quiet around todo.txt-cli, as it's a quite stable app. I haven't heard much from @karbassi, but he's still active in GitHub. I try to answer any issues and pull requests that show up.
Regarding your change of archive, incompatible changes are unlikely to be accepted. But you can easily overload any default behavior with a custom add-on, so why don't you try that out, potentially share that add-on, and if a lot of users like that, it may finally be included in the main app. I wonder though that the todo.txt file would grow all the time if archiving doesn't strip empty lines, doesn't it?
Jeremy Schroeder
@jeresch
Yes, I think it would grow. That makes sense, thanks. I think I'll implement it with just an extra colon key/value tag and an overloaded add, addm, and addto to add the tag automatically. I really just need a unique key/identifier for each task item to implement blockers and dependencies. I was hoping that could be the line number, but it's probably easier with just a new piece of slightly redundant metadata.
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
Using a separate marker is easier. Alternatively, if you want to directly use line numbers, you need to overload archive and adapt all line number references as preceding lines are removed (and ensure through configuration that other actions like deldo not remove lines). Actually, I've implemented such a scheme as part of my todo.txt customizations (https://github.com/inkarkat/todo.txt-cli-ex); there's a dedicated defragment action that is invoked by a custom archive . Dependencies are marked via w:42; you can check out the test (https://github.com/inkarkat/todo.txt-cli-ex/blob/master/tests/t2090-dependency-workflow.sh) for an overview of the dependency workflow. I cannot wholeheartedly recommend that you just take my customizations - they reflect my own idiosyncratic view, but feel free to use it, maybe just bits and pieces, or maybe decide that it's all too complex and instead use a simple implementation with custom markers...
Jeremy Schroeder
@jeresch
Thanks for taking the time to write that out, I'll definitely take a look!

Hi all - bit of a noob question about installing on Ubuntu. I go into the directory and type make but I get the error "make: * No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop."
I just have the three files in that folder: todo.cfg todo_completion todo.sh
Paul Mansfield
@the1ts
@Primal_Buddhist_twitter in debian, todo.txt-cli is a packaged application, last I checked (Ubuntu 18.04-LTS) it was also in Ubuntu.

@Primal_Buddhist_twitter

Hello guru todo! At the first launch I get the following: todo.sh add "start"
/usr/local/bin/todo.sh: строка 798: /usr/local/bin/todo.txt: Permission denied
sed: /usr/local/bin/todo.txt: No such file or directory
/usr/local/bin/todo.sh: строка 835: /usr/local/bin/todo.txt: Permission denied
sed: /usr/local/bin/todo.txt: No such file or directory
start
TODO: added.
what should I do?
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
@bestbat It looks like your user doesn't have write permissions on/usr/local/bin/todo.txt. It's fine to put the script itself under /usr/local/bin (and you likely have used admin rights to write there), but the tasks themselves are user-specific. You should use a different location, in your home directory, e.g. /home/<user>/todo/todo.txt, to be configured (the directory part) as TODO_DIR. I guess you forgot that step.

Hi there, I'm quite a newby to terminal used todo.txt. So I'm trying to use the code 'todo.sh addm "FIRST THING I NEED TO DO +project1 @context
SECOND THING I NEED TO DO +project2 @context' but I don't now how to get a second line into my terminal without using the Enter button. So what kind of button combination do I have to press? Using Ubuntu 20.04.1
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
Hi @zickzackzuck_gitlab; just press Enter; the shell (likely Bash, but almost all behave that way) will notice that the command is incomplete because of the opening double quote (single quotes will do the same), and keep prompting for additional lines until you end the double quotes (or abort with Ctrl+C).
Also, you don't need to submit multiple tasks via a single command (I rarely do); two separate todo.sh add ... will do just fine, and are just a bit longer to type. Speaking of typing, many people define a shorthand (alias t=todo.sh) to avoid typing that much. You'll find many tutorials about basic shell usage that teach you this and much more with regards to effective and efficient editing. The shell has a steep learning curve, but it can be worthwhile. On the other hand, if you're not into programming and don't want to become a power user, there are many alternative todo.txt clients that let you do the same task management through a more common graphical or web interface.

Thanks for your help @inkarkat !
Now i have another question: i m using simpletask for my Todo.txt on my android, quite a good app. My wife and me are trying to get a Family to do list where both of us are could write tasks in. This seems a little tricky for me, because To-Do.txt is not really made for collaboration: if it give access to my Todo.txt my wife Will see a lot of things, she don't want to have, so she should filter always the tasks and could not have a own todo.txt.
of has someone a workaround
I googled but i didnt found anyone Set having the same problem...
Ingo Karkat
@inkarkat
@zickzackzuck You're right; todo.txt isn't made for collaboration. If the majority of your tasks are family-related, it could work to have a shared account, and just mark those (few) personal tasks "@zickzackzuck" and "@wife", respectively, and then use individual filters. Else, I would look to another solution altogether.
