Taskwarrior uses concepts and techniques described in Getting Things Done by David Allen, but is paradigm-agnostic in that it does not require users to adhere to any given life-management philosophy.
Taskwarrior's source code is freely available and can be compiled and run on a variety of architectures and operating systems, or installed using binaries obtained with common package management tools: (apt, Fink, yum, etc.) 
Taskwarrior comprises three main commands: add, list, and done. All other functionality – recurrences, tags, priorities, etc. – are optional.
Adding a task
$ task add Pick up keys to the new apartment Created task 1.
$ task list ID Project Pri Due Active Age Description 1 4 secs Pick up keys to the new apartment 1 task
Marking a task as completed
$ task 1 done Completed 1 'Pick up keys to the new apartment'. Marked 1 task as done.
$ task add Mow the lawn project:Lawnwork due:tomorrow recur:biweekly +home Created task 1.
The Amazing Frankie
Amongst all these rapaciously expanding project management systems, there's this little thing called Taskwarrior. Just a package to install, and then it's you, the command line, and a tutorial. It's a good tutorial, plain English. You can follow it at four in the morning with sand in your eyes after the caffeine has worn off. And it's got these layers. You've got the basics within a few minutes, adding and deleting tasks, setting due dates. You know, the stuff you want one of those life organizing solutions to do. And then, it's got this glorious complexity: interdependent tasks, linked together like paper-clips; waiting tasks, invisible until it's their time, or you summon them; charts, reports, filters, and schedules.

It's kind of a TODO list on steroids.
So I’ve been busy, but a major helper through all of this is my new favorite task manager: Taskwarrior. It’s an amazing CLI-based program that I now can’t live without.
