Environment Variable Reference

  • DATABASE_FILE_PATH: The full-path to the database-file -- it will be created if it does not exist (default: $HOME/.list/LIST)
  • DATABASE_NAME: The database file-name -- if DATABASE_FILE_PATH was not specified, the DATABASE_NAME value will be used to check in the current directory, and if a matching file is not found, your home directory (e.g. $HOME/.list/<DATABASE_FILE_PATH>)

Helpful aliases to emulate different "buckets" of list[-items]

alias goal='DATABASE_NAME="GOAL" list-cli';
alias question='DATABASE_NAME="QUESTION" list-cli';
alias todo='DATABASE_NAME="TODO" list-cli';
...

The above assumes a "packaged installation" to emulate the same behavior from a "source installation" do the following:

alias goal='cd list-cli && DATABASE_NAME="GOAL" bin/run';
alias question='cd list-cli && DATABASE_NAME="QUESTION" bin/run';
alias todo='cd list-cli && DATABASE_NAME="TODO" bin/run';
...
