Remind Utility

I recently discovered the Linux Remind Utility. It seems to have a lot of features, though it’s syntax is rather quirky. For my own benefit, this page has a list of webpages I’ve found referring to remind.

  1. https://linux.die.net/man/1/remind - The man page (the same link as above).
  2. https://www.linuxjournal.com/article/3529 - Looks like this is written by the author of Remind.

I’m still figuring out how remind fits into my computer setup. Right now my .bashrc runs remind and prints out the list reminders I have for that time. Thus, every time I open a new terminal window I see the list of reminders.

Remind has features which allow you to execute commands at intervals, so it seems feasible to setup some integrations with todo.txt or another plaintext task management tool. Perhaps cron is the better option in a lot of cases.
