The simplest CLI todo list manager ever.

  • Reads and prints todos to the command line from any GFM / Org Mode checklist.
  • Search todos by regular expression.
  • Optionally include completed todos.
  • Automatically orders todos with dates at top.
  • Displays past-due todos with **asterisks**
  • Mark todos done.
  • 100% Bash.


The todo list is set by the environment variable TODO_FILE. The following assumes you've symlinked to t somewhere in your $PATH.
