Todo list manager and agenda

Project description

Command-line todo list manager and agenda, inspired by taskwarrior,, and some basic features from org-mode.


The easiest way to install todone is through PyPi:

$ pip3 install todone

If you prefer, it can be installed by cloning the git repository:

$ git clone
$ cd todone
$ python3 install

Basic Setup

Before using todone, you need to tell it where to store the data. Type

$ todone setup init

and answer the questions. The default is to create a sqlite database file. You are now ready to start tracking your todo items!


To enter a new todo item, type

$ todone new This is my todo item

By default, it will put the todo into the inbox/ folder. You can prepend the item with a different folder:

$ todone new today/More important todo

List your todos by folder, keyword search, etc.

$ todone list todo

1 - inbox/This is my todo item
2 - today/More important todo

$ todone list today/

1 - today/More important todo

$ todone move 1 done/

$ todone list todo

1 - inbox/This is my todo item

More comprehensive help is available from the command line

$ todone help

gives a general overview, while

$ todone help <command>

gives more specific help on a given command.

Most commands can be entered short hand. For example,

$ todone new today/My todo
$ todone n to/My todo
$ todone ne t/ My todo

are all parsed identically by the program.
