It is +pronounced like tas-curse or /'tæs.kɝs/. + +## Motivation + +I wanted a simple tool that would let me visualize a list of tasks to complete +on my PC (I would normally use pen and paper for this). Unfortunately, it seems +that almost every tool wants to be an all-in-one task +management+scheduler+reminder tool or seems to be written in a very bloated +language and I simply don't need such complexity. + +My most common usecase for this tool is to keep a list of what needs to get done +when I am programming or writing blog posts. For example, I can make a list of +features to implement in a file, and run `taskurse features.txt` in a terminal +to allow me to very easily manage that list in a more visually pleasing format +than having the file open in Vim or Emacs and using a macro. + +I wanted to create a tool that could do a few simple things, outlined below: + +## Features + +* Simple text-based task file + - One task per line + - Line starts with `x ` if task complete + - Content of the line is the content of the task +* Ability to mark/unmark tasks as complete in the UI +* Ability to insert items to the list +* Ability to delete items from the list +* List auto-saves after every action +* Easy-to-use UI with keybindings displayed on-screen + - h,j,k,l and arrow keys for navigation + - spacebar to mark/unmark tasks as complete + - q,^C to quit the program +* Very simple command-line usage: `taskurse <file>` is all you need + +## Installing + +Instructions coming soon. + +## Contributing + +Feel free to send your patches to ${MAILING_LIST_COMING_SOON}. If you want to +introduce a new feature but I don't feel that it fits with my goals for this +project, please feel free to fork this project and mould it to your needs. +That's what FOSS is about, after all.
