NAME

Text::Todo - Perl interface to todotxt files

VERSION

Since the $VERSION can't be automatically included, here is the RCS Id instead, you'll have to look up $VERSION.

    $Id: Todo.pm,v 1.27 2010/02/16 01:13:12 andrew Exp $

SYNOPSIS

    use Text::Todo;
    
    my $todo = Text::Todo->new('todo/todo.txt');

    foreach my $e (sort { lc($_->text) cmp lc($e->text)} $todo->list) {
        print $e->text, "\n";
    }

DESCRIPTION

This module is a basic interface to the todo.txt files as described by Lifehacker and extended by members of their community.

For more information see http://todotxt.com

This module supports the 3 axes of an effective todo list. Priority, Project and Context.

It does not support other notations or many of the more advanced features of the todo.sh like plugins.

It should be extensible, but and hopefully will be before a 1.0 release.

INTERFACE

new

    new({ 
        [ todo_dir    => 'directory', ]
        [ todo_file   => 'filename in todo_dir', ]
        [ done_file   => 'filename in todo_dir', ]
        [ report_file => 'filename in todo_dir', ]
        });

Allows you to set each item individually. todo_file defaults to todo.txt.

    new('path/to/todo.txt');

Automatically sets todo_dir to 'path/to', todo_file to 'todo.txt'

    new('path/to')

If you pass an existing directory to new, it will set todo_dir.

If you what you set matches (.*)todo(.*).txt it will automatically set done_file to $1done$2.txt and report_file to $1report$2.txt.

For example, new('todo/todo.shopping.txt') will set todo_dir to 'todo', todo_file to 'todo.shopping.txt', done_file to 'done.shopping.txt', and report_file to 'report.shopping.txt'.

file

Allows you to read the paths to the files in use. If as in the SYNOPSIS above you used $todo = new('todo/todo.txt').

    $todo_file = $todo->file('todo_file');

then, $todo_file eq 'todo/todo.txt'

load - Reads a list from a file into the current object.

Allows you to load a different file into the object.

    $todo->load('done_file');

This effects the other functions that act on the list.

save - Writes the list to disk.

    $todo->save(['new/path/to/todo']);

Either writes the current working file or the passed in argument that can be recognized by file().

If you specify a filename it will save to that file and update the paths. Additional changes to the object work on that file.

list - get the curently loaded list

    my @todo_list = $todo->list;

In list context returns a list, it scalar context returns an array reference to the list.

listpri - get the list items that are marked priority

Like list, but only returns entries that have priority set.

    my @priority_list = $todo->listpri;

Since this is so easy to write as:

    my @priority_list = grep { $_->priority } $todo->list;

I think it may become depreciated unless there is demand.

known_tags

Returns a reference to a hash of the tags known to the list.

learn_tag($tag, $sigal)

Let the entire list learn a new tag. If you are working with a list you should use this instead of $entry->learn_tag because it will update all entries.

listtag($tag)

Returns tags found in the list sorted by name.

If there were projects +GarageSale and +Shopping then

    my @projects = $todo->listtag('project');

is the same as

    @projects = ( 'GarageSale', 'Shopping' );

listcon - Shortcut to listtag('context')

listproj - Shortcut to listtag('project')

add

Adds a new entry to the list. Can either be a Text::Todo::Entry object or plain text.

    $todo->add('new todo entry');

It then becomes $todo->list->[-1];

del

Remove an entry from the list, either the reference or by number.

    $removed_entry = $todo->del($entry);

$entry can either be an Text::Todo::Entry in the list or the index of the entry to delete.

Note that entries are 0 indexed (as expected in perl) not starting at line 1.

move

    $todo->move($entry, $new_pos);

$entry can either be the number of the entry or the actual entry. $new_pos is the new position to put it.

Note that entries are 0 indexed (as expected in perl) not starting at line 1.

archive

    $todo->archive

Iterates over the list and for each done entry, addto('done_file') and del($entry). If any were archived it will then save() and load().

addto

    $todo->addto($file, $entry);

Appends text to the file. $file can be anyting recognized by file(). $entry can either be a Text::Todo::Entry or plain text.

listfile

    @list = $todo->listfile($file);

Read a file and returns a list like $todo->list but does not update the internal list that is being worked with. $file can be anyting recognized by file().

DIAGNOSTICS

Most methods return undef on failure.

Some more important methods are fatal.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT

Text::Todo requires no configuration files or environment variables.

Someday it should be able to read and use the todo.sh config file. This may possibly be better done in a client that would use this module.

DEPENDENCIES

Class::Std::Utils File::Spec version

INCOMPATIBILITIES

None reported.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

No bugs have been reported.

Limitations:

Currently there isn't an easy way to print out line numbers with the entry.

Please report any bugs or feature requests to bug-text-todo@rt.cpan.org, or through the web interface at http://rt.cpan.org.
