Note: To set up DayTasks to work with your todo.txt file, you may need to make the window wider in order to see the additional options in the toolbar’s dropdown button on the right side. There is an option there to choose the folder your todo.txt file is located.
DayTasks is a minimal todo.txt-compatible app for Ubuntu. It is freely available from my ppa or for purchase from the Ubuntu Software Center (purchasing from the software center is a great way to support development of DayTasks and Ubuntu at the same time!). It lets you easily manage adding new tasks, removing tasks, marking tasks complete, archiving completed tasks to your done.txt file, and even filtering and searching through tasks in a simple way that lets you find certain projects or contexts easily. It also handles adding creation and completion dates to tasks for you. Try enabling Easy Line Breaks if you want the ability to add more details to your tasks – this is the feature I’ve always wanted to include in DayTasks.
This is the todo.txt app for Ubuntu that I’ve been looking for. It is basic, but simple and effective. Try it today with the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thejambi/thejambi
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install daytasks
Or download the .deb files from the package details page on Launchpad.
