A stop-gap script: toggling a @done tag in selected rows

This is something for which, in due course, Bike.app may no longer need tags (stylesheets revealing toggled attributes might intrude less on the line, and reward the eye less noisily), but for the moment, I find myself marking things off, as I think them through, with either:

  • plain @done, or a timestamped:
  • @done(2022-07-08 08:13) etc.

Here is an interim script for toggling a @done tag (with or without timestamp) in one or more selected (and non-empty) Bike rows.
