Yet another piece of software I'm working on. What do you guys think about the layout?

  • Personally I'd prefer new tasks, current tasks and finished tasks on separate tabs. But that could be just me.

    Same here, would clean up and give more room on the main page too.

    I like the icons but I do not like the textbox outer shadow color.

    It's looking pretty neat so far, good luck with it. :)

  • @Raymii, love your work and website.

    This interface looks alright. Columns to sort things should be built in feature.

    Finished task "preview" on main page is fine if this support multiple people working from same list. Otherwise, bounce it to separate page.

  • @liamwithers @Nexus Something like this, with tabs?

    @pubcrawler thanks :) - Columns are sortable by default. This is intended to be used by one person, but can be used by more. In the next version I'm planning to add categories/contexts, so that you can define it even more.

    @StormVZ of course it will be released, BSD license, just like all my projects. Probably tomorrow, just finishing up the last details.

    Not being an ass, but Google Tasks and RememberTheMilk are pretty much that I think. Using them for a while now.

    I use http://tuxlite.com to configure all my VPSes and I love it!

    How about a Google Tasks integration and email reminder? ;)

  • @netomx RememberTheMilk does mail. I think integration too.

    I used to write it on paper a month ago ;)

    However found a nice app that works on my phone and on my PC, so I can eventually add items to that list on the go, much more efficient.

    It's a tool that can come handy. It's good to have this info online and can check from everywhere. On the other hand you can do a Google Drive "Excel" file and check from there.

    @Raymii I really like the HTML5 Kickstart Framework. Did not know about it. Thanks!

  • Looks good. How big will application be? How about a field "For" with a contact name. Maybe add a column for either an account or a client name.

    Also, something that would be great is if you could make tasks into a template that can be added all at once. New website project has 5 tasks and all 5 tasks are created

  • @rds100 said: You guys sure love to complicate things. I use a text file called TODO.txt.

    I just checked the datestamp on my todo.txt: 12/15/2006

  • @djvdorp said: Not being an ass, but Google Tasks and RememberTheMilk are pretty much that I think.

    You're not an ass. You have one, I hope :P. I know that there are a bazillion pieces of task/todo list software, local, cloud, win/mac/lin out there, but not any that I like. And I've tried a lot of them. Also I prefer to keep control of my data, I like the look of HTML5 Kickstart and it gives me some programming experience.

    And nobody is forcing you to switch or to use it, if you have something that works for you, and you do not want to change, then just keep using that.

    Wrote something for in the README.md:

    Why use this over something like remember the milk, wunderlist or any other cloud service?

    • No ads
    • Nobody selling your data
    • Nobody monitoring your activity
    • Data is easy to get out (no vendor lock-in) and to backup.
    • Offline mode? Host it on your local machine with a LAMP/WAMP/MAMP server.
    • Sync? Use a syncing service on the hosts (owncloud and sparkleshare are quite good) and point the program to a json file in that folder.
    • Offline sync? Combine above 2 points, or put the software in a git, svn or other version control system repo.

    Email reminders are a planned feature.

    You do know that @joepie91 will rage on you for posting that?

    Yes you can do all that. And you are correct about the license.

    I am, and it works nicely so far - the only things I'm missing are a date selector, and automatically sorting by due date.

    EDIT: And when sorting by due date, the entries without a due date should really appear on the bottom of the list, after the due date furthest away, not before the closest.

    This one is perfect and very lightweight. Maybe it could be added into the core, up to Raymii :)

    About 3.7KB compressed, I use it on my projects as well. (Styling that babe is such cake too, have fun with it)

  • Awww, well I don't use jquery >_<. If your project has jquery already than I guess my post is worthless.. my bad.

  • @djvdorp said: Dunno if it does already use, just recognized the layout :)

    Actually, it looks like the jQuery UI (which is NOT a default part of jQuery!) datepicker - which is exactly what it's intended to look like, according to the site. It doesn't use jQuery though :)
