ultralist (list|l)- List all tasks.
You can use filter criteria to show specific tasks. Filter criteria is in the form of
thing:value, much like the syntax for filtering Github issues.
Here are the following filters available:
Filtering by date
ultralist l due:tod- show tasks due today
ultralist l due:tom- show tasks due tomorrow
ultralist l due:overdue- show overdue tasks
ultralist l due:agenda- show tasks who’s due date is today or earlier (overdue)
Currently, only one
due filter is allowed.
Filtering by completion status
ultralist l is:completed- show only completed tasks
ultralist l not:completed- show only incomplete tasks
Filtering by priority status
ultralist l is:priority- show only completed tasks
ultralist l not:priority- show only incomplete tasks
Filtering by archived status
not:archived- note that this option is implicitly added! Ultralist defaults to not showing archived tasks.
ultralist l is:archived- show archived tasks
Filtering by completion date
ultralist l completed:tod- show tasks that were completed today
ultralist l completed:thisweek- show tasks that were completed this week
Filtering by a project or context
ultralist l @pomodoro- show all tasks with a context of
ultralist l +project- show all tasks with a project of
ultralist is a unix tool, just like any other. You can use
grep to combine a complex listing with a filter.
ultralist l due:tom | grep @bob
tasks can be grouped by project or context
ultralist l group:projector
ultralist l group:p- List all tasks, grouped by project.
ultralist l group:contextor
ultralist l group:c- List all tasks, grouped by context.
Showing tasks with notes
--notes flag to show notes on tasks when listing.
$ ultralist l --notes due:agenda group:p $ ultralist l --notes due:agenda group:p
Real world examples of combining groups and listing filters
Below is the command I run every day. So often, in fact, I have an alias for it called
ultralist l due:agenda group:project
Show all tasks due tomorrow, and group them by context:
ultralist l group:context due:tom
Look back at all the tasks you completed today, and feel good about yourself:
ultralist l completed:tod
