About the GPD System
The GPD system is meant for people who spend a great deal of time text editing. It is a Todo app with the power of GTD and Mark Forster's Final Version with ninjitsu shortcuts for maximum workflow speed. Except for Section headers every line is a todo item. Special symbols allow you to understand different aspects of the todo item. Using combinations of regular and symbolic text, everything is free form text.
To install GPD, you first need to install Sublime Text 2. Go to the following link to download, http://www.sublimetext.com/. This a great application for editing text and supports Linux, Mac, and Windows equally well.
If you are using the git install method, then you are going to the need the git client. You can go to the following link to find out more, http://git-scm.com/downloads.
Once you got Sublime Text 2 up and running there two methods of installing GPD.
Install Method 1 - Will Bond's Package Control (Recommended)
Will Bond has made a great plugin that loads packages into Sublime Text. If you use this method you will automatically get updates of GPD when they are released. I highly recommend using this approach.
- Start Sublime Text 2
Install Package Control from will bond (http://wbond.net/sublime_packages/package_control) Open the Sublime Text 2 console by pressing
ctrl+`shortcut. Paste the text below into the console that appears.
import urllib2,os; pf='Package Control.sublime-package'; ipp=sublime.installed_packages_path(); os.makedirs(ipp) if not os.path.exists(ipp) else None; urllib2.install_opener(urllib2.build_opener(urllib2.ProxyHandler())); open(os.path.join(ipp,pf),'wb').write(urllib2.urlopen('http://sublime.wbond.net/'+pf.replace(' ','%20')).read()); print('Please restart Sublime Text to finish installation')
Restart Sublime Text 2.
command+shift+p(Mac) and type Install Package. You should see “Package Control: Install Package”.
Type GPD and press Enter.
Install Method 2 - Clone Repository
This method has less steps, but you will periodically have to check back to download updates.
- Open a terminal or command prompt and navigate to the Packages folder of your Sublime Text 2 installation:
- Windows - cd %APPDATA%\Sublime Text 2\Packages
- Mac - cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 2/Packages
- Linux - cd ~/.config/sublime-text/Packages
git clone https://github.com/Gimped/GPDand press
- Restart Sublime Text 2.
A few steps and you will be on your way.
- Create new file and give it the extension
.GPDand open it in Sublime Text 2
- If it doesn't automatically get recognized (You will see GPD in the bottom right corner), then press
command+shift+p(Mac) and type
Enter. You should see the bottom right of the status bar change.
Boilerplatefrom the selection box. It will instantly give you the section layouts and put your cursor in the
- Create some Todos. Use symbols to note various aspects of the Todo. For all the symbols available (#, !, @, $, ~, ) you can type
symbol,Tabto enter them. All of the symbols represent different attributes of the todo:
#,Tab–> #(Project) - The project or group of work that this todo is part of.
!,Tab–> !(Target) - A measurable target for the todo. For example, a date, a specific performance metric, etc.
@,Tab–> @(Context) - People, places, or things that are related or required for the Todo. Such as a meeting room, a person whom you are waiting for or may need to call.
$,Tab–> $(Cost) - The amount of time or other cost metric that should be accounted for this todo.
~,Tab–> ~(Completion Date) - The date that you finished the todo.
,Tab–> (Note ID) - An ID that references the Note attached to this todo
- Once you got this under control, you will want to get familiar with the shortucts.
Shortcuts make GPD what it is, if you don't learn them it's not really going to work that well.
For Mac replace
ctrl+shift+n- Create a new Todo at the bottom of the //Todo// section
ctrl+shift+.- Move the currently selected Todo at the top of the //Today// section
ctrl+shift+down- Move the current todo at the top of //Closed// section and put a ~(datetime.now) at the front of the todo
ctrl+shift+up- Do the same as
ctrl+shift+downexcept it will also copy the todo to the bottom of the //Todo// section
ctrl+shift+,- Get the note for this todo. It will either find or create the note for you in a companion
.GPD_Notefile. When in the GPD_Note file, you can press this again to switch back.
Todos are divided into different sections. Today, Goals, and Closed. These sections are noted by
//Section Name// followed by an
//End//. The Today, Todo, and Closed sections are mandatory for this Sublime Text package. You can create any other sections you want.
