A few months ago a I wrote a quick article, about a vim package for doing syntax highlighting of todo.txt files. This can be seen as a follow up on that article.
When I wrote the todotext package, it was because I had just started using NeoVim as my daily editor. The hope was that it would help me adjust some of my workflow that I had gotten used to in vscode. Well now that I’ve been using vim for a few more months, I still found that I was wanting a way to quickly search my code for the various ways of finding “TODO” and “FIXME” comments.
Thus the idea for doit was born. I have been using the telescope plugin for vim for searching for files, and it provides easy extensibility. So I was quickly able to write up a simple plugin that searches through my files and finds all my procrastinated work and displays it for me.
If you are interested in trying it out, the instructions for installing it can be found at github.
