VIT — Visual Interactive Taskwarrior

Synopsis

vit [-audit] <filter>

Description

VIT (Visual Interactive Taskwarrior) is a lightweight, curses-based front end for Taskwarrior that provides a convenient way to quickly navigate and process tasks. VIT allows you to interact with tasks in a Vi-intuitive way.

A goal of VIT is to allow you to customize the way in which you use Taskwarrior's core commands as well as to provide a framework for easily dispatching external commands (both user scripts and Taskwarrior's many external scripts). For more information on this, see vitrc(5).

Filter

The <filter> consists of zero or more search criteria that select tasks. For more information on this, see task(1).

Audit

Using the -audit option is for debugging purposes and gives more information on what's going on behind the scenes.
