Things Command Line Tool

So, between AutoPkg and some other tool I am working I have been spending a lot of time in Terminal recently. I have also (once again) tried to organize myself with the GTD app Things from CulturedCode. While I really like the simplicity and design of Things, I also wanted a fast way to add ideas I might have while on the command line and maybe also check off one or the other to do item from the Terminal. In short I wanted a command line tool for things.

Luckily, Things provides an AppleScript interface. So, I just wrote this tool for myself:

Things Command Line Tool

I have found it quite useful and fun. Also this is a nice example of writing a command line tool in AppleScript.
