Importing from Things into Toodledo

Hi *,

I am moving from Cultured Code's "Things" to Toodledo and wanted to do a mass import. I wrote a very small and rather dumb python script that will read a "Database.xml" file from Things and convert into a CSV file that can be read by Toodledo. It only converts the title of a task and anything in the 'notes' field; doesn't deal with tags, contexts, locations, folders, projects, etc. It could, it just wasn't worth the effort for me. So all it does is to rip out title and notes, and dumps the entire list into a folder called "Things" on Toodledo.

Anybody want a copy, let me know!

Great news- can now sync toodledo tasks with Mac Office 2011 over the air by using Beta version of Appigo sync. Brilliant- now have Toodledo on ipad, iphone and Mac snycing together

More and more Things refugees showing up here. How are we going to feed and house them all? :)

Hi *,

I found the script. I tried it on a recent things database (my license still works) and it does not really work correctly; it detects and writes out SOME of the Things tasks but not all of them.

If anyone wants a copy and wants to play with it, that's fine. You'll need a basic understanding of XML and Python. Let me know.

Sorry, don't have any spare cycles to figure out why it is no longer working! I only needed it to work once!

Cultured Code's web site has many scripts for exporting & importing Things data including the logbook, projects, and tasks, including documentation for writing your own scripts. Enjoy!
