Todo apps. People must have lots to do, because there are as many todo apps as hairs in my neckbeard (many).
Well my neckbeard is about to get another hair, because I have created yet another todo app. Introducing . . .
badoop (bash-do . . . p? It sounded cool, don’t look at me like that) is a
simple bash script for managing a todo list. Put it in your
$PATH, and use it
$ badoop Put badoop up on GitHub $ badoop Finish blog post about badoop $ badoop • put badoop up on GitHub • badoop Finish blog post about badoop $ badoop -d GitHub $ badoop • badoop Finish blog post about badoop
badoop is about ten lines of bash. It can do four things.
badoopwith no arguments lists all todo items.
badoopfollowed by anything but a
-hwill add that as a todo item to your todo list.
badoop -ddeletes any todo items matching the arguments passed in next
badoop -hprints out a help message.
It doesn’t do anything with priorities or sorting or nesting or tagging or logging or anything. If you are wondering if it has a certain feature, the answer is no. Frankly, if your todo list is that complicated, you may have too many things to do. You should use a different todo app, or do less things.
Where The List is Stored
By default, badoop looks for a
$TODO environment variable defining a path
to a text file to use as the todo list. If it doesn’t exist, it will use
~/.todo.txt as the todo list.
Cloud Storage Woop Woop
Things 2 just got cloud storage. Pffffft. badoop has had this forever.
$ TODO=~/Dropbox/todo.txt $ badoop Tell everyone about my sweet cloud storage. $ badoop • Tell everyone about my sweet cloud storage.
Consider it clouded.
