I am spending this week learning org-mode.
My motivation is better time tracking.
It’s quite powerful and even the guide is a bit obtuse, so I’m
stealing this intro guide,
but will be exclusively using keyboard shortcuts as I don’t even see
the menu whilst running
By the end of the week, I’d like to have a custom
weekly agenda view, complete with some quotes,
that can show my tasks for the week.
You may find this useful if you know a very little bit of
C-f for opening file type knowledge, nothing too intense).
Follow along below.
C-x C-f to
~/notes/tasks.org to create a file
- add my example tasks
C-c t shifts state:
C-c d opens up calendar to pick due date
- navigate with
. moves to today
+1w - one week from today
C-c [ - add this to agenda files
- I am not sure how to cycle these files
C-c a - agenda mode
a - show weekly agenda
RET on item jumps to file
Looks like that’s the end.
I am going to add two items to my agenda, due today:
- blog post on this, due today
- figure how sort through agenda list files (no deadline)
C-x b to open buffer
- add item 1
C-c t to set
C-c d to set date,
RET to set to today
- add item 2
C-c t to set
DONE on blog post
Looks like there’s no more guide left to follow, so I’ll be
paving my own road from here on out, barring some inspiration
