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!
(if the video doesn’t work use this link: https://streamable.com/4yybj)
The plugin will get more features in the future such as;
component searching, which is basically selecting if you’re searching on priority, header, body or even script names.
|>>||Low priority. ¹||Green|
|>?||Medium Priority. ¹||Blue|
|>!||High priority. ¹||Red|
|:||End of the task’s title|
|#$||Makes the plugin ignore the task on the same line|
|#ignore||Makes the plugin ignore the whole script|
|#scene||allows selective searching for objects, when implanted it will select the parent of the script and open the script on the defined line. ²|
|#editor||Opens the script at the line of the comment. ²|
¹ Will become customizable in the future; ² when neither of these are used it will be given globally to all selections
