RTM new_todo

This is a little script that pops up a desktop request that allows you to type a new todo item that will be posted to Remember the Milk.

It has a really simple text based interface that pops up a single line for input and using shortcuts like t: for tags and @ for locations it creates an email in the correct format.


  • Python 2.4

  • Zenity ( Currently this is used for the popup but I may change to pyGTK at some point)

  • mutt ( I use mutt for sending email but you could change this to mailx )


Download and edit it to set your email address and the rtm email address for your account. That is about it really.
