TUI todo list

Project description


Simple todo list implementation using python curses.


This actually turned out to be a little more comprehensive than I had originally intended; features include:

  • Subtasks to any depth
  • Marking done
  • Marking for deletion
  • Permanent deletion
  • Scrolling long lists
  • Configuration spacing, indenting etc
  • A vim-styled command line interface


All the functionality of tuido is provided through single character commands, these are:

Todo List: top level

    a  :  Add item to current level
    A  :  Add subtask to highlighted item
    c  :  Edit description (^H to backspace)
    C  :  Change description
    d  :  Mark deleted
    D  :  Delete (permanent)
    h  :  Up level
    j  :  Down
    k  :  Up
    l  :  Down level
    m  :  Mark done
    M  :  Mark done (recursive)
    q  :  Write and quit
    r  :  Refresh screen
    w  :  Write
    ?  :  Show (this) help screen
    :  :  Enter command

Command Line

The command line interface is quite simple, hit ':' and give a character command, followed by a description is relevant, then a sequence of numbers indicating the (sub)task to change, e.g:

: A "New Task" 1 2 4

This will add a task witht he description "New Task" to subsubtask 4 of subtask 2 of task 1 of the current window/level.


There still are a couple of things I'd like to add, these include:

  • A searching mechanism
  • Tags probably through the @ symbol
  • Configurable colors
