Inspired by recent discussions about command line entry in unix and hacking the RTM bookmarklet I've designed a Firefox bookmark that:
1 Takes whatever is selected as the default for the task name
2 This text can then be edited and additional info can be added:
- Priority (1,2 or 3)
- Due date (now, today, tomorrow, Mon, Tue etc)
- Estimate (0, 1, 5, 10 etc min, 1, 2, 3, 4 hours, 1, 2 days)
- Tags (end of the text following prio, due, estimate)
3 The URL of the current page is entered as the task URL
4 If you end the input with a " " (space) you get to edit the task in the mobile bookmarklet, otherwise it's added to RTM directly. Either way you get a confirmation and a chance to edit the task.

You can find the javascript at

The above input will result in a task named "Check this cool tool" with a priority of "2" due "monday" with a duration of "30 min" and a tag "-efficiency". The URL will be the page you where on when calling the script.

Any ideas/suggestions? The script seems too long for IE, any way around this?

While I was at it, I added repeat options also:
- Repeat (daily/weekly/montly/yearly, every day/weekday/week/month/year, after a day/weekday/week/month/year)

If you can't get exactly what you want, end with a trailing " " (space) and edit before sending in. Or update the javascript...

Unfortunately you can't use international characters or "+" in the input, maybe I'll get to that later.
