Extending the .todo syntax


#1

Currently, FoldingText checks off a todo list item as follows

where the underlying markdown looks as follows

TODOS.todo
- this is a todo item 

||
v

TODOS.todo
- this is a todo item @done(2016-07-31)

I would be curious what the developer and other users think about an alternative solution. E.g,. by appending the .todo, add a - [ ] to the checkboxes, which is then also rendered as a checkbox via GitHub flavored markdown (and other markdown editors)

TODOS.todo
- [ ] this is a todo item

and checking it off as:

TODOS.todo
- [x] this is a todo item @done(2016-07-31)

I think that would be useful for people who use FoldingText to create outlines and share them via GitHub etc.

Cheers,
Sebastian
