A tool for creating and maintaining a todo-list on the command line
Table of Contents
After wasting tons of sticky notes in an attempt to keep myself organized, I decided I would benefit from a CLI as I do spend a lot of my time on my computer / in the terminal.
I decided to write a Rust alternative to the well known Task Warrior.
clido add "Write more examples for people" # Adds with no priority clido add -p low "Do more things" # Adds a new todo with low priority clido list # Outputs a table will all of the todos clido mark 0 # Marks the 0th task as complete clido del 0 # Deletes the 0th task
Installation and Usage
Currently, the only way to install clido is using cargo:
cargo install clido
Clido's commands follow the following format:
clido [Subcommand] [Flags] [Options] [Input]
clido has the following functionalities:
|Add an item||clido add||-s --start
|"Put the task you want here"|
|Delete an item||clido del||The ID number of the task you
want to delete.
|Mark an item as
|clido mark||The ID number of the task you
want to mark complete.
|List items||clido list||-f --filter
|Filters that an item must have
to be shown
Dates (--start / --due) can be input in the following ways:
- Long name of day (e.g. Monday, Tuesday, ... )
- Abbreviation of the day (e.g. Mon, Tue, ...)
Tags (--tags) must be separated by a comma if using multiple tags. Examples:
clido add -t school,math,homework "Page 45. Logarithms 10-23"
clido add -t home,chores,dishes "Run the dishwasher"
clido add -t no-tag
Specifies the directory in which clido should store its database.
The default value varies across OSes:
OS Path Example Linux / BSD
Clido is still lacking many of the features I would like, such as:
- Groups (tags)
- Named Dates
- End Dates (via date)
- Recurring Tasks (Marks self as pending every specified interval)
- Color Themes
- Interactive marking / deleting using fzf
- Configurable output
I plan to be adding these in as I go, although I can't promise any dates. Feel free to leave suggestions for any other features that you would like to see on the list.
A good portion of the code that I use was possible thanks to a GitHub user ajeetdsouza, and their work on Zoxide. Clido is using many of the same features to Zoxide in order to make things work efficiently and quickly. I found their use of temp files worthwhile, and wanted to make sure that it would be similarly implemented for my program as well.
