this is a small bugfix release for TimeTracker beta. If you dont know what this special beta does, please read the previous posts. This release fixes a problem where clicking on the status bar when no project was selected was causing a crash.
Another small improvment to the beta 4. This version will now show the idle notification in an AlertSheet rather than an own window. The old version had the problem that sometimes the window would get lost when using Spaces in Mac OS 10.5 (which drove me crazy).
Hey, Drupal has given me a lot of pain when moving to the new server. So I am moving to wordpress. Please be aware that I wont copy old comments. I will migrate the posts though hopefully all by tomorrow.
Hey, I was working on an Android project that I submitted to the code contest. Since it did not win anything, I am open sourcing it. If you need sample source for data sources or combobox autocompletion this might help you.
I have read the book Getting Things Done. The Art of Stress-Free Productivity by David Allen and I have been trying to get my hands on some of his recommended folders to do all my paperwork. It has been really hard to find them in Europe (at least Germany and Austria). Finally I found comparable Folders on Amazon.
Hey, this is a bugfix release of the latest TimeTracker for OSX. Please be sure to read the previous blog posts about it to know what it will do to your old settings files, etc.
Changes in this version
* changed NIB file format to 10.4 (might fix issues reported by some users)
* fixed a bug where workperiods (time records) in the right hand pane were not displayed when you had a filter on and had the „All Projects“ item selected.
At the moment I dont have a 10.4 machine which is why I cannot really test it on 10.4 (although XCode says everything should be fine :). So if you are running 10.4 and have issues where time records dont appear properly please check the console for anything suspicious and mail me your findings (a screenshot and an exact description of what you were doing would be very helpful).
Hey, this is the latest version of TimeTracker. Please be sure to read the previous blogposts about this version regarding backing up your old data.
This version willi now properly read old TimeTracker data files in <$HOME>/Library/Preferences/com.slooz.timetracker but the new files will be stored to <$HOME>/Library/Application Support/TimeTracker/data.plist.
Be aware that the old file will only read if the new file version is not available (initial data migration) subsequently the old com.slooz.timetracker file will simply remain untouched (it still does not hurt to make a backup in case you are not using time machine).
Another added feature is the ability to filter also in the comments. Just enter a text and only matching entries with matching comments will be displayed. Also note that all the totals (on the other panes) are properly updated 🙂
Hey this is a new version of the TimeTracker. I have been trying to get the code integrated into the official source tree but so far Aaron seems to be very busy and we havent made much progress. So please read the previous post about my version of TimeTracker and some of its enhancements.
This new version adds
Icons from Esteban Reyes (thanks a lot!)
Day/Week/Month filter mode is now sticky (if you change the start date the filter will be immediately applied)
Compatible with OSX 10.4 Universal Binary (previous versions were Leopard only)
please read the first timeTracker post as well for instructions about backing up the data file
After lots of hackery I finally got a decent semi automated iGTD -> iPhone export working.
It goes like that:
it changes the default html export format of iGTD, based on the information here. You have to open the package contents of iGTD and replace the old export templates with these files. The template is inspired by the good looking OmniFocus bookmark exporter (OFfline)
then create a folder which will receive the exported html file
use this folder action script which is based on the information macosxhints
put the script into /Library/Scripts/Folder Action Scripts
How to use:
1. go to the context view (projects view does not work yet)
2. select File->Export to file
3. in the export dialog select „HTML table“ as a format
4. save it in the folder that you have assigned the folder action to
In the near future I intend to extend this to also sync with an iphone data bookmark but for now this is already quite nice.
