A To-Do Script for Fargo

An updated version of this script with more bells and whistles can be found here.

If you have an outline with only a simple list of single action to-do items (i.e, no headlines with child nodes) and an Archive headline at the very end of your outline, this script does the following:

  • Choose "todo" from your Scripts menu to add an empty checkbox when you first enter the action item.

  • When you've completed the item, choose "todo" to add a checkmark to the headline.

  • If you don't want to see the completed item anymore, choose "todo" to make the headline a child of the Archive headline.

  • If your headline has any other icon value associated with it (e.g., ), "todo" will do absolutely nothing to it.

(If you do not see a github embed above, please refresh this page or get the raw code here.)

Your outline would look something like this:

  • incomplete to-do item

  • completed to-do item

  • Archive

If you expand the Archive headline, you will see your completed items.
