For a few years I've been using todo.txt through lack on any decent alternatives, and I soon started working on a hobby project to make a todo.txt webserver. That spiralled out of control and I'd like to open it up to the world. I've got a stable beta server up-and-running with Dropbox API access to files. I'd love to get some feedback from anyone who'd like to take it for a spin? The server is at https://www.taskherd.com ... and is unlikely to eat your files (it's never eaten mine), though needless to say, take backups...
Taskherd looks very cool! The only things I would offer would be:
-some 'back' buttons in a few of the areas. I tried to go the Dropbox file search route, didn't work for me, but couldn't go back and had to reload the page.
-note on the Dropbox option: it could only see a few folders; shared, public, and another one that I can't remember, but I couldn't see my whole dropbox folder list. Is that by design?
-I would also offer the ability to load files directly from the user's drive! That way I can have the folders in Dropbox or whatever other syncing option I'd like to use!
Thanks for responding to my notes!
A few more notes :
With the cloud upload button, is that uploading it to the taskherd folder in my dropbox? Or is just uploading it to the memory in the browser? Ah, I just checked and I think it's loading it right into Dropbox.
When I opened Taskherd today to check on what you mentioned, it brought me back to either a)creating new folders or b) selecting within my Dropbox folders. I'd expected it to take me back to where I was yesterday.
Yesterday when I'd tested and couldn't get it to find my own folders, I created new folders and copied my own todo files into there; it seemed to work okay for my testing.
But if reloading the page brings me right back to the create new / find your files dialog, then it's a bad loop. Because I the taskherd folder created is just as unfindable for me as my original todo folder was.
At this point, the only way it's usable with my own files is to either:
1)choose the create new folder option
2)use the cloud upload button to load the file
3)edit as desired
4)repeat that loop every time I close the page.
(this also means it creates a new taskherd folder. I've got two folders with that name now, the third one is taskherd(2) )
(B) put my working todo files in a folder within the Public, Outgoing, or Shared Folders, because those are the only ones showing up. I just tried that and it's working...
At least two of those folders have shared links inside them, even though the folders themselves don't have shared links. I think Outgoing doesn't have anything in it, but it may have a special status.
This may not have been a problem with your own files because you were using your own higher levels of access.
So, until that permission issue is resolved, at least there's a way to access our pre-made list files; put them in a folder that is showing up.
But going back to the main note: I'd expected taskherd to 'remember' where it was getting files from when I reloaded the page. I'm not sure how to save that status. Otherwise our options are to leave the page open or re-do the loop each time.
I hope these notes make sense!
