I've found that no tool (not even an Emacs mode) makes the type of daily planning I do simple/straightforward.
My choices are therefore to write one, or to just keep doing what I've been doing and use a partially analog system.
The benefits of writing down my schedule every day and writing out certain tasks in the morning is also meditative, so I see no reason to spend time coding it.
The downside of my system is that I have my daily planner out all the time, but I still go to the computer for calendar events , and I still have to transcribe todo items.
My longer term task todo management is lacking. I'm currently using Personal Kanban for those items.
