Proof of concept for a Taskwarrior on-exit hook that manages a git repository in ~/.task
#!/usr/bin/env python
#
# PoC: Manage a git repository in ~/.task that gets updated on changes.
# Only pending.data and completed.data are included by default.
# You can use "git add" to add whatever files you want to track in your
# task folder.
#
# Inspired by https://gist.github.com/Unode/9366218
#
# Works with any Taskwarrior version that supports hooks.
# Needs Taskwarrior 2.4.3 in order to show fancy commit messages.
#
# NOTE: Little to no error handling. This is a PoC, remember?
