What do you do when it rains on the weekend ? Remove some sleep and my girlfriend gone on a trip and you’re pretty sure I’m hacking some code.
But before the unveiling, here goes a song by Jimi Hendrix
There must be some kind of way out of here
Said the joker to the thief
There’s too much confusion
I cant get no relief
Businessman they drink my wine
Plow men dig my earth
None will level on the line
Nobody of it is worth
- another to-do list manager
- better then all of them combined !
- using AJAX like there’s no tomorrow
- breathing REST like it was born from its flesh
- live, now, today!
- made in one weekend so don’t blame me for the bugs even if there are NONE!
- not working on IE and never will (this is not a bug, it’s a feature)
- using the scaffold stylesheet, I know …
The UI is pretty simple. You add tasks on the top box, on the left you got dated tasks, on the right the ones with no date (later).
Quick task creation
When submitting a new task your can use the follow syntax to be uber productive:
[category] My task description for next week
The category is optional. It must be specified inside  at the beginning of the task. The date part is also optional. Donebox uses the amazing Chronic library to parse date. The date must be at the end of the task description. You can use any of these and more: thursday, november, mon, today, tomorrow, thursday next week, 3rd wednesday in next november.
Quick task reordering and date changing
As you might expect from any 2.0 beta to-do list manager, you can reorder tasks by drag-dropping them. But Donebox does a little more then that. You can actually change a task due date by dragging it to another date. Pretty easy and quick.
I don’t need another web app to keep up!
Neither I! That’s why you can use Donebox API to script your way to to-do list nirvana. Or you could use one of the scripts I already coded, one bash script usable from the command line and a Quicksilver script.
Comments, suggestions are warmly welcome, as always (unless you’re using IE)!
Hope you like it!
