Simple to-do list CLI manager in Python

Project description

Todopy2 is tiny Python program that helps you manage your stupid and utterly simple todo list, that you hold in plain text file ($HOME/todo.log by default).

You might ask yourself: “Why the hell would you keep your todo list in a file?” If you do, then please move along, there is nothing interesing for you to see here. This is for the people who need to keep it in the text file, to parse it with other software, sync it with custom wiki, or Android application, and what not.


The easiest way is to install it with pip:

pip install todopy2

After that, you’ll have todo executable in your path to invoke.


Listing tasks

To list all task, just invoke the program without any arguments:


You can use built-in help to refine it a little bit. Consult:

todo -h

Adding tasks

todo add today ‘Shuffle keys to make Dvorak keyboard’

Starting tasks

todo start 1

That number up there is the item number. You can see item numbers when you list tasks.

Reseting tasks

Since you know you will mark stuff as started, and then forget about it:

todo reset 1

Marking it as done

todo done 1


It is just a text file, but we sure do a lot of stuff. This command removes items that are done:

todo clean

Moving around

You figured out you won’t be able to make it today, lets move it to later:

todo move 1 later

Removing items

Yeah, let’s not do that at all:

todo remove 1
