Haskerdeux - A Simple Command Line Client for Teuxdeux in Haskell

Written with the dual purpose of being a learning exercise for Haskell and also because I really wanted a command line tool for Teuxdeux. As it stands this is a bit rough and ready, but it does work.

It used to use Network.Curl, but I can't get that to work anymore so I'm doing straight system calls to curl which means it's not very Haskelly and ultimately a bit of a pointless use of Haskell, but it's for me, so there.

Status

Alive! Official status is "Messy and works for me, unlikely to improve"; It was dead for years because I didn't think it was possible to get the new API to work.

Requirements

You need the following Haskell packages installed:

I also suggest you compile it to use it - it's much faster to use that way. Just do ghc --make haskerdeux.hs. If you don't compile it then replace ./haskerdeux in the examples below with runhaskell haskerdeux.hs.

Features/Commands

Haskerdeux works in the following way:

haskerdeux <date> <command> <optional args>

I.e. the date supplied is the date the commands act on. It understands "today", "tomorrow" and dates in "YYYY-MM-DD" format. All commands recognise and require a date.

It includes the following commands:

Todos

For listing todos only (as that is all I want to see)

haskerdeux today todos haskerdeux tomorrow todos haskerdeux 2017-02-28 todos

This returns a numbered list, like so:

0 - Write README for Haskerdeux
1 - Write Blog post about Haskerdeux
2 - Split development work in different branch
3 - Perhaps do some actual work you are paid to do

You can use those numbers with the PutOff and CrossOff commands, etc.

New

For creating new tasks

haskerdeux today new "<A todo item for today>" haskerdeux tomorrow new "<A todo item for tomorrow>"

PutOff

For putting off a task until the next day.

haskerdeux today putoff <tasknumber from todos list>

E.g:

haskerdeux today putoff 3

MoveTo

For moving a task to another date.

haskerdeux today moveto <tasknumber from todos list> <date in YYYY:MM:DD>

E.g:

haskerdeux today moveto 11 2012-09-01

CrossOff

For marking a task as complete

haskerdeux today crossoff <tasknumber from todos list>

Delete

For completely removing a task

haskerdeux today delete <tasknumber from todos list>

Using .netrc For Storing Username and Password

It's compulsory. It used to support passing username/password as command line args, but no more. The <username> and <password> are read from .netrc. Just add an entry to .netrc as follows:

machine teuxdeux.com
	login superprocrastinator
	password mysecretpassword

Or the single line format:

machine teuxdeux.com loging superprocrastinator password mysecretpassword

It should work ok with either format. It won't work if you have spaces in your password though.

Development

Nope.
