Allows you to create tasks using 'blocks:' in addition to the built-in 'depends:' arguments.

pip install taskwarrior-blocks-capsule==0.1.1


Taskwarrior Blocks Capsule

When defining tasks in taskwarrior, you currently have only one option-- annotating which tasks a given task depends upon using the depends: argument. This capsule adds a new argument -- blocks: which you can use for creating task dependencies from the opposite side.


  1. Make sure you have Taskwarrior-Capsules installed.

  2. Install this library:

    pip install taskwarrior-blocks-capsule
  3. That's all!


Create a task that blocks another by using the blocks: argument with comma-separated list of task UUIDs or IDs; imagine that you have a task with an ID of 25 for which you'd like to create a dependent task:

tw add "Make sure to apply peanut butter to bread" blocks:25

The above command will cause two commands to be executed behind the scenes:

task add "Make sure to apply peanut butter to bread"
# let's pretend that this is created as task #26

task 25 modify depends:26
