Todour finally open source and on GitHub

So, I finally got around to it. You can find the source code of Todour on GitHub https://github.com/SverrirValgeirsson/Todour

There is plenty of room for improvements as most of the code has grown organically from a minor experiment that I was doing some years ago and I don’t really code that much nowadays. Anyway, I put it under GPL for simple sharing in any form. Hope it’s of value to someone.

 

Advanced search in Todour 2.06 (preliminary)

Advanced searching has been implemented and is being tested for the 2.06 release of Todour.

The search will be able to handle multiple search words including negative ones, like below where all lines with “test2” and “test1” but not test4 will be matched.

The negative matching is especially convenient when wanting to exclude a project or context. I use it for excluding the “@work” context when I am not working for example but you can of course find many other uses for it.

Stay tuned for the 2.06 release coming quite soon…

Context locking in Todour

The 2.05 version of Todour will have a context lock feature. That means that when the context is “locked”, it’s automatically added to any new line. So for instance if your’re working on a +project1, you can search for it, press the lock and then just add all the todos you want. All will have +project1 added to them so they keep the context you’re in.

Minor changes

  • New icons from FontAwesome
  • Ability to sort items alphabetically
  • Bugfix: an x in the beginning of the first word would be interpreted as a ‘done’ task
  • Bugfix: Copy and pasting multiline text will still only create one item

Go get it at the todour page

Todour 2.03 ready

Head over to the Todour-page for downloading the new 2.03 release.

Changes:

  • Table width is now always the width of the window (not the included text).
  • Tooltips show the entire contents of a todo
  • Ctrl-f sets focus on the search field (Cmd-f on mac)
  • Ctrl-n sets focus on the “new” field (Cmd-n on mac)
  • Tab order improved
  • Editing a value will remember the position in the table so keyboard operation is easy (F2 to edit or Enter on a mac)
  • Window remembers it’s position and size

Enjoy

 

Video showing how Todour works

I’ve noted that there is a small but loyal base of users that use Todour, but quite many download, try once and then never come back. Is it to difficult to use? Or is it just not what those users were expecting? Anyhow, now there is a video showing it in action to both help understand what it is and also understand how it can be used. Hope it is of value.
