@kaushiknfs I think the thought is, if you introduce a new "keyword", like &, it should be different than the other available ones.
all contexts arent equal, why should their prefix be?
I see some interesting test cases scrolling by here, curious how clients (including mine) handles these special character contexts...
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 + @.
@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.
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
I have a change on simpletask that add a uuid for any task not having one
It looks ugly in text though
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
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.
@ravl1084 simpletask should always leave the todo file with consistent line endings.
@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
@karbassi I would, but besides updating simpletask I really don't have time to do this.
@mpcjanssen I fully understand!
And I don't remember how wel localized the dropbox code is in todotxt
It should not be hard
Authentication is a bit tricky
I have no android experience, tbh
Know any android devs who might want to help out? Specially since it's hacktoberfest right now
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.
@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?
> 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: 14of14 tasks shown
todo.shls | head -n-2
@ilzichio add TODOTXT_VERBOSE=0 to your todo.cfg file
Any way to colorize tags?
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
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.
@jtpereyda I'm experiencing the same thing
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?
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?
I am wondering if there is any easy way of configuring todo.txt-cli to add the time on the creation and completion date?
@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
