Adding tasks from Ruby or YAML Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Encouraged by Andy Schott's Safari to OmniFocus AppleScript example, I wrote a command line Ruby program to import tasks defined in YAML files.

For example:

% cat tasks.yml
- context: Administriva
due date: 2010-12-24
name: Blossom 2
note: Cherry 2
project: Auto
% of-import-yaml tasks.yml

You can get the software at

Importing tasks seems to be quite a common request here, so I thought I'd post this in case other people find it useful even though it's very rough and ready code.
Good piece of illustrative code - thank you !
Thanks much for this! My source was CSV instead of YAML so I wrote some Python code to transform it. I posted it here in case it's useful to anyone:
