Taskline: manage your tasks with style

Taskline: manage your tasks with style

If you are a digital minimalist, you are most likely using or at least tried Taskwarrior; a command-line minimal yet features-rich to-do app.

Taskline is a new stylish successor for Taskwarrior with less complicated learning curve. Taskline turns your terminal into a powerful task management tool without a hustle.

Unlike Taskwarrior, It features board and timeline view with a set of useful features that include backup option and better control over tasks list.  

It's a minimal lightweight application that does not require extensive hardware resources to run.
