Getting things GNOME! integration with online services

Project context

Luca Invernizzi's project for the Google Summer of Code, 2010 edition.


Development of a framework to synchronize the TO-DO manager "Getting Things GNOME!" with online (and offline) providers of "things to do". Providers can range from traditional online TO-DO managers à la Remember the Milk to bugs assigned to you in a bug tracker. A few of them will be implemented: Remember the Milk, Evolution Data Server, Launchpad , twitter (for adding tasks when receiving direct messages marked #todo).


An extended explanation of what is planned is available here.

Where to find the code

I'm pushing my work on a branch on Launchpad. Before testing, backup you gtg directory:

  • tar czf gtg.tgz .local/share/gtg
    tar czf gtg_conf.tgz .config/gtg

To test it, execute:

  • bzr branch lp:~gtg-user/gtg/multi-backends__invernizzi_gsoc gtg-invernizzi
    cd gtg-invernizzi
