Michel-orgmode is a fork of michel which serves as a bridge between an org-mode textfile and a google-tasks task list. It can push/pull org-mode text files to/from google tasks, and perform bidirectional synchronization/merging between an org-mode text file and a google tasks list.
Pull your default task-list to an org-mode file:
michel --pull --orgfile myfile.org
Pull the default task-list from a different google account to an org-mode file:
michel --pull --orgfile myfile_other.org --profile other_acct
Push an org-mode file to your default task-list:
michel --push --orgfile myfile.org
Synchronize an org-mode file with your default task-list:
michel --sync --orgfile myfile.org
Synchronize an org-mode file with your task-list named "Shopping":
michel --sync --orgfile shopping.org --listname Shopping
The first time michel is run under a particular profile, you will be shown a URL. Click it, and authorize michel to access google-tasks data for whichever google-account you want to associate with the profile. You're done! If no profile is specified when running michel, a default profile will be used.
The authorization token is stored in
$XDG_DATA_HOME/michel/<profile-name>_oauth.dat. No other information is
stored, since the authorization token is the only information needed for michel
to authenticate with google and access your tasks data.

This script currently only supports a subset of the org-mode format. The following elements are mapped mapped between a google-tasks list and an org-mode file:
- Task Indentation <--> Number of asterisks preceding a headline
- Task Notes <--> Headline's body text
- Checked-off / crossed-out <--> Headline is marked as DONE
