TaskWarrior

Description

Taskwarrior is an open-source, cross platform time and task management tool. It has a command-line interface rather than a graphical user interface.

Thoughts

I found TaskWarrior a few weeks ago and to be honest - this is by far the best task manager.

This tool is the first and only software that helped me in implementing my workflow. (I will write about this workflow in a separate post.)

All the details about TaskWarrior you can find on their official website, so now I will try to summarize the reasoning why I think this program deserves to be loved.

Scores

5/5
Since the time I found it, the bar for "practical" software has been raised permanently

5/5
This is true CLI application, meaning that it can be used in variety of scenarios"
Customization
5/5
You can configure a lot of things, including colors, default and predefined settings
UI
4/5
UI is great for CLI tool. There is always space for improvement and I personally wasn't astonished with it, so 4 out of 5 is a good compromise
Cool Factor
3/5
Whenever you caught using it, not everybody will go "WOAH!", only those who know what it is will
Ease of Use
3/5
It's not easy to set everything up, however it might require quite an effort to setup the server, so you can use it on the go
Portability

Total
29/35
