Add special notes to your source code comments in Rails to later remind you of tasks you need to complete:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Some programming IDEs, such as Aptana Studio 3 (free), will even highlight the key notation part.
Now, from the command line, you can list these special notes with a rake task:
1 2 3 4 5
You can also list notes of each kind individually with
rake notes:fixme and
You can even list your own, custom notes with
rake notes:custom ANNOTATION=MYANNO.
