Adding #TODO: Refactor this! to your code gives you fuzzy little feelings of happiness that you intend to improve things "later".

You won't, though.

Not unless you install Todo or Die. This Ruby gem (also Rust) does something mere comments could) never do: It actually reminds you to do the thing.

TodoOrDie("Remove after TestObject fully integrated", by: "2022-01-01")

As author Justin Searls puts it:

So I did what any programmer would do in the face of an intractable social problem: I wrote code in the vain hope of solving things without needing to talk to anyone. And now this gem exists.

Available now where-ever good Rubygems are installed.
