task Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies task-2.5.3.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Branching Model

We use the following branching model:

  • master is the stable branch. Building from here is the same as building from the latest tarball, or installing a binary package. No development is done on the master branch.

  • 2.6.0 is the current development branch. All work is done here, and upon release it will be merged to master. This development branch is not stable, may not even build or pass tests, and should be treated accordingly. Make backups.


There are many binary packages available, but to install from source requires:

  • git
  • cmake
  • make
  • C++ compiler, currently gcc 5.0+ or clang 3.4+ for full C++14 support

Download the tarball, and expand it:

$ curl -O https://taskwarrior.org/download/task-2.6.0.tar.gz
$ tar xzf task-2.6.0.tar.gz
$ cd task-2.6.0

Or clone this repository:

$ git clone --recursive -b 2.6.0 https://github.com/GothenburgBitFactory/taskwarrior.git
$ cd taskwarrior

In case of errors with libshared - URL pointing to git.tasktools.org in either .git/config or .gitmodules:

$ sed -i 's/git.tasktools.org\/TM/github.com\/GothenburgBitFactory/' .git/config
$ git submodule update


$ sed -i 's/git.tasktools.org\/TM/github.com\/GothenburgBitFactory/' .gitmodules
$ git submodule init
$ git submodule update

Then build:

$ cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release .
$ make
[$ make test]
$ sudo make install
