pytodotxt

A tiny library to access todo.txt-like task lists.

Installation

To install pytodotxt, you can follow these steps to clone the repository, and install the program.

pip install pytodotxt

That’s all there is to do.

Example usage

Here’s an example how to open a todo.txt file and print the description of all tasks that are not marked as completed:

import pytodotxt


todotxt = pytodotxt.TodoTxt('todo.txt')
todotxt.parse()

for task in todotxt.tasks:
    if not task.is_completed:
        print(task.description)

Here is how you add a new task to an existing todo.txt file:

import datetime

import pytodotxt

todotxt = pytodotxt.TodoTxt('todo.txt')
todotxt.parse()

task = pytodotxt.Task()
task.parse('This is a new task')
task.creation_date = datetime.date.today()

todotxt.tasks.append(task)

todotxt.save()
