A text file could be used to store, update, and view my weekly planner to help keeps things as simple as possible.
Here's an example of what the weekly planner would look like:
weekly-planner.txt ================== Sunday, 6th Dec --------------- Monday, 7th Dec --------------- reminder: grey bin out for collection 9:30pm Meeting with Mr Smith Tue --- Contact Mrs Anderson to hopefully arrange a meeting in January Wed --- Thu --- Spend time reading the Getting Things Done book Fri --- Shopping at Sainsbury's: * milk * bread * Kitchen cleaner Sat ---
The format of the weekly planner is relatively loose as it is intended primarily for use by a human, not a machine. A bot (or 1 or more scripts) will help maintain the text file to ensure the week ahead is shown relative to today's date. The bot will also ensure previous weekly planner entries are archived by week and saved in their own file e.g. wplanner49.txt.
