Get a list of all TODO/FIXME tasks left to be done in your project

alias tasks='grep --exclude-dir=.git -rEI "TODO|FIXME" . 2>/dev/null'
Place this in your .bashrc (or run it once) to set the `tasks` alias. Next time you enter `tasks` into a terminal, it will give you a list of all TODO and FIXME comments in the current directory and child directories, giving you a quick overview of what you still have to do!
