t- : A less-than-minimal task list "manager""t-" is a task list manager in the style of "t". It's even more minimal, with even fewer features. You can add items to your task list, remove items from it, list them, and that's about it. The documentation for "t" says:
that want to *finish* tasks, not organize them.
I've made no attempt to make this run on anything other than my system. It runs on Python 2.2.1 on SuSE linux 8.1. I've not (yet) tried it on anything else.
With no arguments, t- will print the list of tasks in random order, putting the deleted tasks last.
Tasks are listed in a random order, and preceeded by a random, 4 character string. Finish a task with the -f parameter, and it gets listed with "x" at the start. Delete the finished tasks by "finishing" the hash "x".
$ t- Buy some milk 5274 : Buy some milk $ t- Buy some bread 5274 : Buy some milk f014 : Buy some bread $ t- -f 5274 f014 : Buy some bread x : 5274 : Buy some milk $ t- -f x f014 : Buy some bread
Tasks are stored in plain text in the given file, and you can edit that file simply by using a text editor. The hash, once the file is written, has no meaning, and could be chosen at random.
If you screw up, you can recover the immediate previous version of the task file:
$ t- --recoverFinally, as with the original "t", you can have several task lists by specifying them on the command line, or setting up multiple aliases.
InstallationTo install "t-":
CreditsAs should be obvious, this draws heavily on "t" for inspiration and details. I have a very old version of Python on a very old machine, and "t" won't run on it because of dependencies. I wrote this as a minimal version to see if it would be worth the time to install the full version.
So far it isn't. Your experience may differ from mine.
