Taskwarrior uses concepts and techniques described in Getting Things Done by David Allen, but is paradigm-agnostic in that it does not require users to adhere to any given life-management philosophy.
Taskwarrior's source code is freely available and can be compiled and run on a variety of architectures and operating systems, or installed using binaries obtained with common package management tools: (apt, Fink, yum, dnf, etc.)
Taskwarrior comprises three main commands: add, list, and done. All other functionality – recurrences, tags, priorities, etc. – are optional.
Adding a task
$ task add Pick up keys to the new apartment Created task 1.
$ task list ID Project Pri Due Active Age Description 1 4 secs Pick up keys to the new apartment 1 task
Marking a task as completed
$ task 1 done Completed 1 'Pick up keys to the new apartment'. Marked 1 task as done.
$ task add Mow the lawn project:Lawnwork due:tomorrow recur:biweekly +home Created task 1.
When used in conjunction with Taskserver, can sync tasks into the cloud, and indirectly with other clients/devices.
