taskw 0.7.2

Python bindings for your taskwarrior database

Latest Version: 0.8.1

This is a python API for the taskwarrior command line tool.

It contains two implementations: taskw.TaskWarrior and taskw.TaskWarriorExperimental. The first implementation is relatively stable. It manipulates the ~/.task/ dbs directly. The second implementation is in alpha and will be made default some day. It interacts with taskwarrior by shelling out to taskwarrior import and export commands as per the upstream guidelines.

Getting taskw

Installing

Using taskw requires that you first install taskwarrior.

$ pip install taskw

You can find the source on github at http://github.com/ralphbean/taskw

Examples

Looking at tasks

>>> from taskw import TaskWarrior
>>> w = TaskWarrior()
>>> tasks = w.load_tasks()
>>> tasks.keys()
['completed', 'pending']
>>> type(tasks['pending'])
<type 'list'>
>>> type(tasks['pending'][0])
<type 'dict'>

Experimental mode

>>> from taskw import TaskWarriorExperimental
>>> w = TaskWarriorExperimental()
>>> tasks = w.load_tasks()
>>> tasks.keys()
['completed', 'pending']
>>> type(tasks['pending'])
<type 'list'>
>>> type(tasks['pending'][0])
<type 'dict'>

Adding tasks

>>> from taskw import TaskWarrior
>>> w = TaskWarrior()
>>> w.task_add("Eat food")
>>> w.task_add("Take a nap", priority="H", project="life", due="1359090000")

Completing tasks

>>> from taskw import TaskWarrior
>>> w = TaskWarrior()
>>> w.task_done(46)

Being Flexible

You can point taskw at different taskwarrior databases.

>>> from taskw import TaskWarrior
>>> w = TaskWarrior(config_filename="~/some_project/.taskrc")
>>> w.task_add("Use 'taskw'.")

Looking at the config

>>> from taskw import TaskWarrior
>>> w = TaskWarrior()
>>> config = w.load_config()
>>> config['data']['location']
'/home/threebean/.task'
>>> config['_forcecolor']
'yes'
