with open('tasks.json', 'r') as file:
with open('tasks.json', 'w') as file:
task_name = input("Enter task name: ")
tasks = load_tasks()
tasks = load_tasks()
for index, task in enumerate(tasks, start=1):
tasks = load_tasks()
task_index = int(input("Enter the task number to mark as complete: ")) - 1
if 0 <= task_index < len(tasks): tasks.pop(task_index) save_tasks(tasks) print("Task marked as complete.") else: print("Invalid task number.") def continue_startup_tool(): print("Welcome to the Startup Task Tracker!") while True: print("\nOptions:") print("1. Add a task") print("2. List tasks") print("3. Mark task as complete") print("4. Exit") choice = input("Enter your choice (1-4): ") if choice == "1": add_task() elif choice == "2": list_tasks() elif choice == "3": complete_task() elif choice == "4": break else: print("Invalid choice. Please try again.") continue_startup_tool()
This code provides a simple command-line tool that allows users to add tasks, list existing tasks, mark tasks as complete, and exit the tool. The tasks are stored in a JSON file (`tasks.json`) for persistence. You can expand upon this basic structure or provide more specific requirements to further refine the tool.
