Toodledo Desktop Client for Mac (kinda)

I've been using an app I created for the last week to view Toodledo. I made it using Fluid - fluidapp.com and so far I'm loving it. I have also created a custom stylesheet for it.

It's only for Mac and so far is at its early stages, but it seems stable. If you want to try it out go here - http://www.nonimage.com/toodledo-desktop-for-mac/ and let me know what you think.

(It's basically just a site-specific browser, so it's not storing your login details to send to me or anything).

Hopefully some of you will find it handy.

Cool...does this have off line access capabilities? 2 way syncing?

Thanks for the effort!

Thanks for this.

Unfortunately, for me each task wraps onto the next line as the columns with this style are apparently wider than the default. I like the look but it won't work properly if your list is wide.

no, as he pointed out, it´s a site specific browser, so it won´t add any functionality. the goal of the fluid applications is to have a way of focussing on one online app, without the rest of the distracting internet right at hand.

to be honest, i could not follow that idea, as it does 2 things:
a) clutter my dock with one more icon
b) it does not prevent me from opening firefox and surfing the web anyways

so while the idea is nice, it never worked for me. i´ll stick with toodledo in my firefox sidebar, where it´s working decently enough for me.

Unfortunately it seems that the Fluid version doesn't do any autocompleting. Often when I'm adding tags to a task the web browser (FF in my case) will autocomplete; give me a list of options based on previous entries. It's a bit of a time saver. Anything that saves time is important to me so it looks like I'll be going back to having Toodledo open in a separate Firefox tab at all times.

Thanks for the effort though!

Is there any chance you'd release the style sheet as a greasemonkey script? I like the Mac-like skin you've come up with for the web app.

I think it better if have offline feature. Web can use when don't have internet connection. Hope Fluid or Toodledo develop this soon.

How do you use the custom stylesheet? My fluid app has still the awful toodledo look! ; )

Edit : I read your instructions but I still have this problem.

I would like to point out that the toodledothingsstyle.user.js file can be used as a Greasemonkey script. If you file->open the .js file in Firefox (with Greasemonkey installed) you will get the standard Greasemonkey install prompt.

Sorry, Fluid changed something, so there is now an extra step involved to activate the theme. Go to http://nonimage.com/labs/toodledo-desktop-for-mac/ and follow the new instructions. It definitely works properly now.

I'm trying to test this as well and I cannot get the Things style to work - even with your new directions. Can you help? Thanks for putting this together, interesting concept and I like the Things style (in screenshot).

Everything that I try to set up my Fluid Toodledo, it seems to work great, but when I open it and then click on any of the items, it opens up a new browser, so the utility of Fluid goes out the window. Is anyone else having this issues? What is the fix?

You probably have it set up to only allow you onto a specific page. Go into preferences, then advanced and it should look like this:

unfortunately it does not for me as well...is there any other setting somewhere (on the Mac) that could prevent activation?
I followed instruction exactly....same result as Joshua described (see above)

I got the Things Style to work via FF/Greasemonkey. But I had to edit the script to change the "FLUID WIDTH" code [width: 100% removed], otherwise the default Toodledo column sizing tool/buttons did not work. I decided not to use it though, I resize my view via Zoom - and the smaller text/graphics did look quite right.

I love this skin, but I did not like the way the sidebar limited the width of the tasks area, so I modded Andy's great userstyle to look like this: http://itiz.in/gnuk

...doing the following:

1/ Drag menuitems to your bookmarksbar in Fluid (my bookmarks are actually organised like this: http://itiz.in/nk99)
2/ Edit the Userscript:
2.1/ Add display: none !important; after #toc {
2.2/ Add position: absolute; left: 0px; after #main {
2.3/ Optional: remove float: left !important; between the #main brackets {}
3/ Save (as a new userstyle) and reload

I know it's definitely no rocketscience, but I have a feeling more people like me do not use all the sidebarbuttons, and could use the extra space.
If you want to add new bookmarks after the edit, just temporarily disable your userstyle :).

I have tried following your instructions but it's not happening for me. Just loaded Snow Leopard - is that a problem?

Forget my last message got it working now -initial reaction is that I like the look - I'm obviously not the technocrat that some of the folks here obviously are, I just want to GTD

Thanks for the great app Andy!

I am, however, encountering something that is driving me nuts:

When I switch views (eg. main to folder) the fluid app first displays the normal theme and then your css script. It's only a flash but it kind gets annoying. Is this normal?
