The online todo list seems popular, or rather a lot of people logged in with the posted details and created/resolved tasks at least.
It is kinda cute to watch multiple people all using a site with only one set of login credentials - I guess this is a special case because you cannot easily delete things. Still I wonder how other sites would work like that? Would visitors self-organise, some trashing things, and others repairing damage? (I guess we could consider wikipedia a good example.)
Anyway I've spent a little while this morning and this lunchtime adding in the missing features and doing things suggested by users.
- "Duration" is shown for both open & completed tasks.
- The "home" page is removed as it added no value.
- Tasks may be flagged as urgent.
- *Tasks which have titles beginning with "*" are urgent by default).
- Searching works across tags, notes, and titles.
- Tag name completion is pending.
I think in terms of features that I'm done. I just need to wire up creation of accounts, and the submission of tasks via email. Then un-fuck my actual code.
I guess as a final thing I need to consider email notices. I deliberately do not support or mandate "due dates" for tasks. I think I prefer the idea of an email alert beign sent if a task is marked as urgent and has had no activity in the past 24 hours. (Where activity means "new note". e.g. you'd add "still working on this", or similar to cancel the pending alert)
Sending alerts via twitter could also be an option, although I still mostly abhor it.
