Manage a To-Do List
td-cli is a command line todo manager written in Python3 for organizing todo lists across multiple projects.
Regolith includes a status bar blocklet for accessing
td-cli directly from the bar. It can be installed as follows:
sudo apt install i3xrocks-todo
td-cli you can access it via command line using
td. The full documentation of
td-cli’s API can be found online at their repository. For example, let’s create a todo list with a group name of Regolith, set it as the default project, and then add a new task to this group:
td ag regolith td g regolith p td a "Write a Howto for td-cli"
Now, if you click on the
td-cli blocklet (on the left of the time blocklet in the figure below) a floating terminal opens up with an interactive instance of
You can set this blocklet to only show number of uncompleted tasks in the bar by setting the following key in your
Xresource file, for example,
By default, this key is set to
false. Moreover, you can add a keybinding for accessing
td-cli via a floating terminal by adding the following line to your
i3 config file, for example,
bindsym $mod+Ctrl+d exec --no-startup-id "/usr/bin/gnome-terminal --class=floating_window -e 'td --interactive'"
Alternatively, you add these lines to your
i3 config file, first:
set_from_resource $i3-wm.bindsym.1 i3-wm.bindsym.1 : set_from_resource $i3-wm.bindsym.program.1 i3-wm.bindsym.program.1 : bindsym $mod+$i3-wm.bindsym.1 exec --no-startup-id "$i3-wm.bindsym.program.1"
Then, add the followings to your
i3-wm.bindsym.1: Ctrl+d i3-wm.bindsym.program.1: /usr/bin/gnome-terminal --class=floating_window -e 'td --interactive'
