So, I finally got around to it. You can find the source code of Todour on GitHub https://github.com/SverrirValgeirsson/Todour
There is plenty of room for improvements as most of the code has grown organically from a minor experiment that I was doing some years ago and I don’t really code that much nowadays. Anyway, I put it under GPL for simple sharing in any form. Hope it’s of value to someone.
Download todour 2.07 from https://nerdur.com/todour-pl/ for some minor updates.
- Possibility to turn off live search (good for very large files)
- Settings dialog layout fixed in windows 10
- Automatic scrolling added
Hi. The 2.05 version of Todour is now out. Get it and enjoy the new context feature and a bit fewer bugs 🙂
Get it here
The 2.04 version of Todour is available now.
- New icons from FontAwesome
- Ability to sort items alphabetically
- Bugfix: an x in the beginning of the first word would be interpreted as a ‘done’ task
- Bugfix: Copy and pasting multiline text will still only create one item
Go get it at the todour page
The first feature of the 2.04 branch has been checked in, and that became a button to toggle alphabetic sorting of the list (yay!)
Head over to the Todour-page for downloading the new 2.03 release.
- Table width is now always the width of the window (not the included text).
- Tooltips show the entire contents of a todo
- Ctrl-f sets focus on the search field (Cmd-f on mac)
- Ctrl-n sets focus on the “new” field (Cmd-n on mac)
- Tab order improved
- Editing a value will remember the position in the table so keyboard operation is easy (F2 to edit or Enter on a mac)
- Window remembers it’s position and size
Now a short time has passed since I posted about tagging on SoundCloud and I thought a small update might be of interest.
The effect has been noticeable. The song in question had been all but forgotten before I added the tags but is now on my top list of most played songs without me having driven it in any way. Now that increase may be an effect of me writing about the song in a previous blog post and I have to check with other songs just to see if the results stays.
Happy tagging.. it seems to matter.
I use a few browsers on my different desktops and I normally don’t really care what I’m using. The standard is pretty high when it comes to browsers and even the bad ones are good. But there is a browser I always get back to, and that is Firefox.
Although writing this little post about it gave me an opportunity to tweet that Firefox crashed a lot today, I won’t mind. It usually doesn’t (and has just had a major upgrade).
But the main reason is that it is cross platform, and that the plugins are just so good (Pocket and Evernote mostly).
I don’t use many plugins, but those I have integrate well (on all platforms I use) and the browser does actually feel faster on my mac than Chrome. Then the fact that it’s very developer friendly is a big plus.
But the main reason is the fuzzy feeling of control and trust. Mozilla isn’t selling my data, and they work actively to make the web a little bit more secure.
That really matters.
I’m doing a small experiment here. I normally don’t tag that much on my songs on SoundCloud. Basically, I’m too lazy. But what effect would it have if I did?
Time to find out.
I selected a song that’s not being played a lot, even though I would say it’s quite good: Reading.
The song only has a few tags as shown in the picture below. Now what happens if I add a bunch of tags?
As the song is about Reading between the lines there are all sorts of tags I can add to it. So here is what I ended up with.
The limit is 30 tags and all are used now. It will be interesting to see if tagging has any effect in the plays the song gets (and the fact that most of the tags are on what the song is about, not the style of music).
