I’ve been trying to use Things for a while, but am crap at remembering to add my tasks to it. So I tried to automate it a little. I wrote my own basic CLI interface to Things in Python, imaginatively called pyThings so I could script the inclusion of tasks.
but I still don’t use it as much as I should. I think it might be the over-head involved. I don’t need most of the advanced features of Things, and I am starting to think as simple as it was it felt over-complex having all these additional bits I never used.
So am switching to TODO.txt. I have it set to save all todos to a file in Dropbox so I can access them anywhere (iPhone & iPad included) and in my ~/.profile I have added “todo.sh ls" so every-time I open Terminal I am presented with a list of my todos.
Hopefully this should suit my working style a little better, and I don’t have to write my own CLI to this one ;)
You’re reading the fucking Google Open-source blog. Of course it is going to be a bit fucking geeky, you complete tool.
Anyways forgot what that idiot is saying and go check out GoogleCL. It looks awesome! You can read more about it in their introductory blog post on the GoogleOS blog. But be careful, it might be a bit geeky!
