How to use the TODO file type?


#1

I just found out that there is a file type named “TODO”. Not sure how to use. Do I NEED the package at https://atom.io/packages/tasks named Tasks? I tried the package and “cmd-d” did not toggle the task.


#2

If you’re talking about the language-todo package, it doesn’t describe a TODO file type. It just syntax highlights TODO-style comments in other languages.

@leedohm No, I mean todo was a task list. Like the image below:

That image is from https://atom.io/packages/tasks. I just want to know if the package is needed.

If you want the boxes and the green check marks and such, then yes. There are ways that people represent task lists using plain text or Markdown and such … but that’s just text.
