Taskwarrior is a powerful command line to-do list manager. It is designed to be unobtrusive and fast, allowing users to quickly record information about their work and then move on. Users assign tasks to their to-do list with "task add 'Task Description.'" Tasks can optionally have due dates, priorities, dependencies on other tasks, be tagged with free-form data, be part of specific projects, or may recur. Users may employ as many or as few of these features in their workflow as they desire. Taskwarrior seeks to be a methodology neutral tool that users can fit to their own specific preferences. The list of upcoming tasks can be viewed with "task list," and specific tasks can be marked done with "task done." For users that desire it, Taskwarrior can also produce calendars, burndown charts, and a variety of other reports. The Start Here button on the Taskwarrior homepage leads to a quick start guide and links to further documentation. In the Download section, users can locate instructions for installing Taskwarrior on Linux, BSD, macOS, and Windows systems.
