Lists are stored in
~/.config/slate/ and their default name is the name of your current directory. You can use any other name you want using the
--name option or by adding a
.slate file containing the name you want to use.
The following configuration options can be set in
~/.config/slate/config.toml (you'll have to create this file).
You can check out config.example.toml for a configuration example.
You must define the commands in this section in a
[callbacks] key1 = value1 key2 = value2 ...
You can use
slate sync to synchronize your slates. There's no default configuration for this command, so for it to work you'll have to add your own sync command, for example:
sync = "git add . && git commit -m 'Update slates'; git pull --rebase origin master && git push origin master"
This would stage & commit every updates in
~/.config/slate/, update your local copy and push your updates to the
slate status only displays the number of notes by status. You can add a command in the
status key that'll be used to check if the slate is synchronized or not, for example:
status = "git diff --exit-code $SLATE"
$SLATE will be set to
~/.config/slate/<slate name>.md. The command must return a non-zero exit code if the slate is out of sync and zero if it's synced.
You can use the following commands to generate a completion script for your shell:
slate --bash-completion-script $(which slate)
slate --zsh-completion-script $(which slate)
slate --fish-completion-script (which slate)
