Self-management for power-users
Smos is a comprehensive system for implementing self-management as a power-user.
Smos is first and foremost a library with which you can build your own version. It is similar to XMonad in this respect. See the default configuration for an example of a configuration.
Future-proof file format
The Smos file format (
.smos) is completely future proof because it is just
a subset of YAML, which is plain text:
- entry: header: Use Smos timestamps: DEADLINE: 2018-10-30 SCHEDULED: 2018-10-20 state-history: - state: STARTED time: 2020-05-04 17:40:04.522146420000 tags: - online forest: - header: Don't mess it up state-history: - state: DONE time: 2020-05-04 17:40:18.177282440000 - state: TODO time: 2020-05-04 17:40:17.225761141000 - header: Be smart about it state-history: - state: TODO time: 2020-05-04 17:40:25.881089668000 tags: - work
This means that if you ever stop using smos, or it becomes unavaible, your data is still available and easy to read.
Machine-readible file format
The file format is very easy to work with programmatically, and convenience
functions in the
smos-data library are provided to operate on Smos data.
You can write your own tools to operate on these files.
Great for synchronisation
Files are made to make diffs easy and disjoint.
Derived data is never stored, but instead computed or rendered.
There is also built-in sychronisation using
A replacement for emacs org mode
Smos intends to deprecate Emacs org mode by being more robust, more customisable, by providing a better and more tool-friendly file format and by using a more sane configuration language.
