coto is a command line Todoist client that allows you to control your projects and tasks from the comfort of your terminal.
Currently, to install
coto, you'll first need to download the Rust toolchain. This can be done with this command - curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSf https://sh.rustup.rs | sh (if you're using windows, look here). Then run cargo install coto and you'll be ready to go.
coto, simply type coto on the command line. Every time you run this command you'll be prompted to enter your 'API token', which can be found by going to 'todoist.com -> Settings -> Integrations -> API token'. In the future, this will only need to be entered once (the first time you use it).
coto has two main types of screens - the 'projects overview' and the 'tasks overview'. After entering your API token you will be presented with the 'projects overview', which displays all of your projects. After navigating to one of your projects, you will be presented with the 'tasks overview', which displays all of your sections and tasks.
The 'projects overview' screen displays all of your Todoist projects and information about each one (project name, project id and whether the project is shared). You can perform all of the normal functions on each of the projects, the controls are listed below:
||Display project contents (e.g. P3).|
||Create new project.|
The 'tasks overview' screen displays all of the sections and tasks within a selected project in a hierarchical order. Each task is listed alongside its task name, due date, priority and the date it was created. Much like the 'projects overview', all of the normal functions are available for both the sections and the tasks, the controls are listed below:
||Complete task (e.g. T2).|
||Create new task.|
||Make new section.|
coto is currently in version 0.1.0 which means that there is still a long way to go for this little application, it lacks quite a few of the more complex features that Todoist provides and is quite rough around the edges. My goal for this application is to support all of the features that Todoist provides, while keeping it fast and responsive and maintaining a low CPU overhead. So, with that in mind, here is a roadmap (if you can call it that) for this project:
After that, I'd consider
