Find Inactive org-drill Items With org-mode's Agendaemacs, org-mode
I use org-drill for spaced repetition.
org-drill treats any element with the
:drill: tag as a question. Any child nodes are the answer. It presents each question and conceals the answer until I've had a chance to remember it myself. Here's a sample card from my deck:
* What is the Rule of 72? :drill: ** Answer An estimation of the time it takes double an amount with compound interest. Given interest rate n, 72/n yields the approximate number of years to double the amount.
When adding new cards, if I forget to add the
:drill: tag, then I'll never see it during spaced repetition sessions.
I do weekly reviews with an org-mode agenda. So, I created a section in my review agenda:
(setq org-agenda-custom-commands (quote (("r" "Review" ( ;; ... (org-ql-block '(and (not (descendants)) (not (tags-all "drill"))) ((org-agenda-files '("~/org/drill/")) (org-ql-block-header "Untagged drills"))))))))
org-ql makes this simple. Any element which has no children, and has not inherited the
:drill: tag will show up during weekly reviews so that I can correct it.
Another nice hack here is
(org-agenda-files '("~/org/drill/")). It had never occurred to me that I could specify different agenda files for different sections of the agenda!
