smichel17 Yeah. Quite unfortunate.. And I guess github isn't configured to prevent force pushing master, that would have caught it
smichel17 Totally unrelated, I submitted a talk to libreplanet 2021 that features Simpletask :)

mpcjanssen (@_slack_simpletask-todo_U0HCD26MS:matrix.org) Cool, it's available already?

smichel17 I only submitted a proposal. Talks haven't been chosen yet. LibrePlanet 2021 is march 20-21.

smichel17 The "nontechnical" trojan horse: Design for tech-illiterate users need not undermine Software Freedom values

Locked-down devices, forced updates, removal of customizability and powerful/useful features — these restrictions are often implemented in the name of accessibility to "nontechnical users". These design practices are based on an implicit assumption that these people will never become "technical users". And, by removing any incentive for people to become "technical users", they create a self-fulfilling prophecy.

The premise of Software Freedom is that people should be in control of [what code runs on] their computers. Tech literacy is necessary to excercise this freedom; it is a prerequisite for digital autonomy. Accepting that some people will never become tech literate is accepting that Software Freedom is not for everyone; it is an existential threat to this movement.

Fortunately, by "making simple things easy and hard things possible" we can design software which is usable by people at many levels of tech literacy.

I will elaborate on these ideas, with examples.

smichel17 The part of ST I intend to nutrition is the lua callbacks, which allow ST to support advanced features without complicating the base functionality for people who want or need something simple

mpcjanssen (@_slack_simpletask-todo_U0HCD26MS:matrix.org) Ah yes that was the main driver for adding Lua

mpcjanssen (@_slack_simpletask-todo_U0HCD26MS:matrix.org) Also if i have some time the next week I will polish up the storage access framework version and make that the single Google play version
matrixbot
@matrixbot
mpcjanssen (@_slack_simpletask-todo_U0HCD26MS:matrix.org) Although it probably is not allowed to be called Simpletask. I am open for suggestions

smichel17 One thing I could do with an onParse — swap which symbol is called "list" vs "tag" 😆
smichel17 GTD calls for making lists based on context, but I think that's basically just an artifact of the fact that it was implemented on paper
smichel17 Because — the important thing about contexts is that you can see all next actions for a given context in one placed
smichel17 * Because — the important thing about contexts is that you can see all next actions for a given context in one place
smichel17 On paper the only way to do that is to write them all in the same list
smichel17 But digitally, you can write a checklist of actions needed for a project, and tag each of them with any appropriate context
matrixbot
@matrixbot
smichel17 And then have a view that just shows actions for a given context

@smichel17 if you clean up the saf version I'll release it.

tbh I also have very little ambition around ST on Android
While there's a few things here and there that could be better, it mostly works for me as-is
And more importantly, when I think ahead a year or few, I see myself running a GNU+Linux phone, not Android
I'm on a Samsung Galaxy S6 running android 7. I plan/hope to replace it with a Librem 5, and plan to get a pinephone earlier than that to start playing around with
@mpcjanssen: So I'm much more interested in porting than anything else on Android.

But I also have sooo many thing I want to do right now, so it's not that high of a priority
except when I switch it will become a very high priority :P

hiq: Yeah, but I want ST on my desktop (and web!), too!

ok, I thought that one point of ST was using the todo.txt format so that you can use other tools on the desktop. But maybe you'd like to use ST-specific features like the Lua addons on your desktop
smichel17
@smichel17:matrix.org

Yes, but to me the most important "other tool" is a simple text editor.
And yes, I miss lua scripts and saved filters -- basically "build your own workflow" functionality -- in other tools.

Hello, thank you for this app, I like it very much.
I just have some questions.
vojta
@vojta:vojtapolasek.eu

For some reason, when I turn off all filters, the tasks are grouped by project. Can I disable that?
1 reply
Also when I want to sort tasks by due date, I open "filter", go to "sort" and click due date and nothing changes in result. What am I doing wrong?
1 reply
Last and the least important question - can I specify the calendar which is used to create reminders?

Cooool, that's what I needed. Thanks.
Oh so it can't be synced?
smichel17
@smichel17:matrix.org
[m]
The drag is because it's an order. Sort by due date, and then if two items have the same date, sort by the next criteria..
I don't know of a way to sync it.. I won't say it definitively can't be done
Because it still does create a local calendar on the device, which other apps can read
So if there's another app which can sync a local calendar to a remote one, that should work (but most sync apps are the other way around -- syncing a remote calendar locally, which sounds like the same thing, but the difference is that they create a new local calendar that syncs, rather than an existing one)
