pushes/pull flat text files to google tasks

Project description

Michel is your friendly mate that helps you managing your todo list. It
can push/pull flat text files to google tasks.

Usage
=====

Commands
--------

Michel keeps it stupid simple. It only has two commands:

michel pull
which prints the default todo list on the standard output

michel push <TODO.txt>
which replaces the default todo list with the content of TODO.txt

Non features
------------

Michel aims at being simple: it does not handle due dates nor notes.

Syntax
------

One line is one task. tab-indented lines (with the real tab character)
are subtasks of the "parent" line.

Suggestion
----------

Here is how michel can be used. A crontask pulls every 15 minutes the
default TODO list, and another one displays a notification during 10
seconds every hour (requires notify-send).

*/15 * * * * michel pull > /tmp/TODO && mv /tmp/TODO ~/.TODO
0 * * * * DISPLAY=":0.0" notify-send -t 10000 TODO "$(cat ~/.TODO)"

After you modify your TODO list, don't forget to push it!

michel push .TODO

If this trick is not working, it is probably because the variable PATH
does not contains /usr/local/bin in crontab. You might want to set it
manually. See 'man 5 crontab'.

Installing
==========

install python-xdg, then run

easy_install michel

or

pip install michel
