We all know the issue of forgetting where we left off and if we commented stuff, where to find it back. Atleast I know i have. In the last week I’ve come up with an eligant sollution for this.
I would like to introduce to you; Ro-Tasks
Ro-Tasks is an easy implementation of noting down tasks and getting to see them visually in the plugin. The plugin allows you to set a task header and body alongside from it jumping directly to the line when clicked on.
make sure to comment the line first to prevent errors in your script, it does register a line without comment but that should be common sense.
you don’t need to do anything complicated, simply comment your line, put in the syntax of your preference (>>, >?, >!) write down the header, end the header ( : ) and write down the body. like so:
-- >>My Header: Some specific body
that’s it. nothing more, nothing less. Easy right?
Want to see it in action before getting the plugin? Sure thing! take a look at the video!

|Extended searching||Ability to search by any keyword within a task, this being a header, body text or even script name||
|Presetting Header/Title||Ability to set the header of every task within the script at once instead of needing to do it separately||
|Prefix Customization||Allowing to customize the prefix/suffix for both Team create and solo development. Execution is to be decided possibly with using a single module in the game with a specific format. Not entirely sure about that one, Any suggestions for this are welcome.||
|Plugin settings tab||allowing users to set certain aspects of the plugin depending on how global it is, still deciding what exactly to put in the settings tab as most stuff is pre-set and shouldn’t be changed||

April 17th 2020
Due to recent editor changes such as committing you now require to commit your changes before they appear in the task plugin (This is only required for team create)
May 4th 2020
For version 2.2.0 and Above
Update notices within the plugin are bound to the version updates on this forum post. Meaning if a new update is available it’s always a good idea to check back here as that means that the post got updated.
For version 2.2.0 and Above
The plugin currently uses a proxy to access devforum.roblox.com. It’s up to you to allow this proxy or not as it only searches this specific post once for any new updates on plugin startup/reload.
Elaborated more about it here
