@bram85 thanks!

@karbassi simpletask and topydo share a convention about recurring todo items
Kaushik
@kaushiknfs

one thing i'd love to see it expand is contexts.
From my viewpoint an task can have 4 types of contexts 'what, when, who and where' and additionally others.
It would be great if the spec expanded to support more context prefixes
like # or & ..

Currently i use @& for who contexts , @@ for where contexts, + / @ for what contexts ..

Having more context prefixes can speed up quick task additions using auto suggest. With suggests filtering on prefixes.

autosuggest

my example may be more closer to gtd, but the idea of having more than 1 context prefixes beyond @ increases the ways it can be used, like the one my example above.
Ali Karbassi
@karbassi
@kaushiknfs couldn't you do @work/sub1 @work/sub2, etc?
Bram Schoenmakers
@bram85
Exactly my suggestion, to use 'folders'
Ali Karbassi
@karbassi
Yea, the spec already supports this and I believe people do this with their own workflows.
Kaushik
@kaushiknfs
I didnt know that!, my question is if @work indicated a place and @adam indicated a person, there is no way to differentiate that the tag is a person or place than your understanding of the keyword ? also can you point to part of spec that defines folders please.
if i had to type @person/adam , i would have to type all the way till @person/ to kick in the auto suggest to list all persons , right?
was always curious , why the "@" , why only "@" :)
@karbassi I'll ask "Todo.txt for Chrome" to join, had been interacting with him.
Ali Karbassi
@karbassi
@kaushiknfs it's all flexible that way. You could do @p/adam or @_adam or @-adam
@kaushiknfs thanks
I use the @-personpattern, personally because then I do do todo.sh ls @- to find all the tasks that involve people
Kaushik
@kaushiknfs
@karbassi thats exactly what am doing now @&adam , like me and adam, would have been simpler with &adam, but this is just my thought, i'm quite sure people behind todo.txt and its tools would have definitely given this a thought over last 11 years.
Ali Karbassi
@karbassi
@kaushiknfs I think the thought is, if you introduce a new "keyword", like &, it should be different than the other available ones.
Kaushik
@kaushiknfs
all contexts arent equal, why should their prefix be?
Bram Schoenmakers
@bram85
I see some interesting test cases scrolling by here, curious how clients (including mine) handles these special character contexts...
Kaushik
@kaushiknfs
it would be great if the client treats prefixes + - @ # & $ , lets say a limited restricted set - uniformly as contexts and leave it to the imagination of the user to let him build context types / classes. or simply stick with + @.

@mpcjanssen
@bram85 got the gitter message. I have some ideas about the todo.txt format.
More freedom in choosing projects and contexts is one.
Some way of signifying task identity is another
I think contexts and projects should be whitespace terminated only (and maybe , and . : and ; )
A task identity is essential for any reliable syncing solution.
Bram Schoenmakers
@bram85
Identities would be a useful addition, in topydo it would've been useful in many occasions. Right now topydo maintains an id tag for those items that require an ID
Mark Janssen
@mpcjanssen
I have a change on simpletask that add a uuid for any task not having one
It looks ugly in text though
Rene Vergara
@ravl1084
hi, I just downloaded the latest master for todo.txt-cli and the coloring of projects and contexts is not working right. some lines are colored, some are not
Rene Vergara
@ravl1084
Found the problem, I had a ^M character at the end of some lines in my file. I think they were added by Simpletask on my phone.
Mark Janssen
@mpcjanssen
@ravl1084 simpletask should always leave the todo file with consistent line endings.
Rene Vergara
@ravl1084
@mpcjanssen Simpletask had the "use Windows-friendly line breaks" setting on by default, I cleaned up my file and turned that off and the issue was resolved

Dropbox turned of V1 API today.
Ali Karbassi
@karbassi
@mpcjanssen what does that mean for your app?
Mark Janssen
@mpcjanssen
@karbassi I updated it to support API v2
(reluctantly)
Mark Janssen
@mpcjanssen
@karbassi the migration was not trivial, but all the dropbox v2 related handling in Simpletask is in the file: https://github.com/mpcjanssen/simpletask-android/blob/master/app/src/dropbox/java/nl/mpcjanssen/simpletask/remote/FileStore.kt
Ali Karbassi
@karbassi
@mpcjanssen would you be willing to help upgrade the todo.txt-android project's from v1 to v2? https://github.com/todotxt/todo.txt-android/tree/master/src/com/todotxt/todotxttouch/remote
Mark Janssen
@mpcjanssen
@karbassi I would, but besides updating simpletask I really don't have time to do this.
Ali Karbassi
@karbassi
@mpcjanssen I fully understand!
Mark Janssen
@mpcjanssen
And I don't remember how wel localized the dropbox code is in todotxt
It should not be hard
Authentication is a bit tricky
Ali Karbassi
@karbassi
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?

anyone familiar with this error?

@ilzichio
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
