A simple JSON task item scheduler and manager

Project Description

hocapontas is a small library built to provide an easy to use API when developing ‘life-assisting’ applications in Python. Example areas where hocapontas might be useful is when developing a CLI application for managing your budget or a slackbot for planning and reminding your of coming events. Just simple things, but simpler.

An Early Stage

As of this early stage in development, hocapontas doesn’t look like much. It currently features a small task scheduler where task items are made up of dictionaries to be easily passed on and manipulated in which ever environment one desires.

For storing data persistantly, a plain text file is used and contains just the task items, no users or other metadata exists yet. Future versions will include adapter APIs for communication between proper databases.


  • Database Adapter
    • Support for MongoDB
    • Support for multiple users
  • Reminder Module (upcoming events, nag about incomplete tasks, etc.)
  • Budget Planning Module
