todo-ci 0.3.0

A simple CI/CD CLI tool for registering and checking todos in code with deadlines


Check your code TODOs (and fail your ci/cd if they're overdue)


Write your todos in the format: @todo(YYYY-MM-DD): A description of a todo...

fn main() {
    // @todo(2022-08-10): Print something besides "Hello World!"
    println!("Hello World!");

    print!("Hello World again!");  // @todo(2022-07-10): use `println` instead of `print`

Run todo-ci to check for overdue TODOs in the current directory

# Local installation
todo-ci ./

# Docker
docker run -v $(pwd):/volume -it /volume



Integrate todo-ci in the ci/cd platform of choice for checking TODOs in code. If any overdue TODOs are found, a 1 exit code is emitted, hence failing ci/cd runs.


Using cargo:

cargo install todo-ci

Using docker:

# Pull the latest image

docker pull
