Todo.txt for Chrome – new filtering options, and more

version 2017.0626.4.16

New filtering options

Added new filtering options to filter by dates, completion status, and (no) priority

Filtering by date

Filter your task lists by dates – task due date, creation date, and completion date.

    • For due date: ‘due:<date>
    • For creation date: ‘created:<date>‘, and
    • For completion date: ‘completed:<date>

<date> can be today, tomorrow, yesterday, or a specific date of the form yyyy-mm-dd (e.g. ‘completed:2017-06-21‘). There is no space before or after the colon.

Other new filtering options

  1. You may filter the lists for completed tasks using: ‘is:complete
  2. You may filter for tasks with no priority using: ‘(.)

All these new filters can also be used to exclude tasks by appending a ‘-‘ (e.g. ‘-is:complete‘ will show only incomplete tasks). They can also be, as usual, combined with other terms, including using ‘||‘.

Task list traversal using keyboard

There are a couple of small changes to list traversal:

  • Press ‘escape‘ key to clear highlighted/selected task
  • Pressing ‘<up>‘/’<down>‘ keys when on first/last task, now cycles back to the other end of the list

Other changes

  • When not signed in, clicking on the extension button will open the Sign-in page, instead of the extension popup.
  • Updated the minimum supported Chrome version to 49
    • I needed some functionality that isn’t available in versions prior to v.49,
    • Current Chrome version is 59, and v49 was released in March 2016 – so, hoping most users won’t be affected.

If you encounter any issues, specially due to changes to filtering tasks, or because you are using a version of Chrome that is older than 49, please do let me know using the feedback form.
