A simple CalDav-based todo manager.
Official website and repository is hosted at GitLab.com.
- Listing, editing and creating todos.
- Todos are read from individual ics files from the configured directory. This matches the vdir specification.
- There’s support for the most common TODO features for now (summary, description, location, due date and priority) for now.
- Todoman should run on any major operating system.
- Unsupported fields may not be shown but are never deleted or altered.
- Keep a SQL cache of all the entries, and update this only when the modification time of the ics files changes. This design is inspired (identical, really) to what khal does.
- Interactive mode. Including a list of todos, and easy selection for marking done and editing.
- Support for other icalendar fields which are not implemented yet.
- Customizable output format.
Pull requests and patches are welcome! 😉 Please report any issues on the project issue tracker.
Priority granularity hasn’t been completely implemented yet. Icalendar supports priorities 1-9 or none. Todoman supports only none or 1 (highest).
Due dates are generally shown and editable as dates with no time component.
Support for the percent-completed attribute is incomplete. Todoman can only mark todos as completed (100%), and will nor reflect nor allow editing for values for percent > 0 ^ percent < 100.
Running setup.py (as described below, in Installation) should install all necessary dependencies via pip. The only pre-requisite for this is python 3, which ships with most modern distributions.
All python dependencies are listed under requirements.txt.
Todoman will not work with python 2. However, keep in mind that python 2 and python 3 can coexist (and most distributions actually ship both).
If todoman is not in your distribution’s repositories, to install it run:
pip install todoman
If pip is not available either (this is most unlikely), you’ll need to download the source tarball and run:
python3 setup.py install
You’ll need to configure Todoman first. Required values are a path where your todos are stored and the date format you prefer. Check the todoman.conf.sample file, which should serve as a reference. The configuration file should be placed in $XDG_CONFIG_DIR/todoman/todoman.conf. $XDG_CONFIG_DIR defaults to ~/.config is most situations.
Usage is rather simple:
todo todo new todo edit ID todo show ID todo help | -h | --help todo --version
When no arguments are passed, Todoman will list all todos, along with their IDs. IDs are not immutable, and will change as you add/delete new entries.

If you want to synchronize your todos, you’ll needs something that syncs via CalDAV. vdirsyncer is the recommended tool for this.
Color and displayname
- You can set a color for each task list by creating a color file containing a colorcode in the format #RRGGBB.
- A file named displayname decides how the task list should be named. The default is the directory name.
If you install click-repl, todoman gets a new command called repl, which lauches an interactive shell with tab-completion.
