Today wraps up week 3 of the 2013 Ubuntu App Showdown, with 19 days left.
I’ve been very busy working on a very useful feature for Ubuntu Tasks – Trello integration! So far I’ve added read-only support for the following:
- Connect to Trello
- View Trello boards
- View cards in a Trello board. This includes:
- 1st Checklist
- Keep a local copy of Trello boards and cards for faster startup
Unfortunately, my original UI design did not include the concept of lists, which Trello uses as a level between boards and cards (what I call projects and tasks). I haven’t been able to come up with any ideas on how to integrate this, so I asked for suggestions on Google+ and Sam Hewitt is going to work on a design for me (very much appreciated).
Along with Trello integration, I’ve also been working on minor UI improvements in other areas, which include:
- Redesigned checklists
- Better names for the buttons to create a new project and add a new task
- A new date picker widget
I’ve still got a lot to do before the deadline, September 15. I’d like to complete the following features:
- Sorting of tasks
- Better Trello integration, including:
- Being able to modify/create/delete Trello boards/lists/cards
- Dependencies on other tasks (maybe)
So, as you can see, this list of features is gradually shrinking. My own project backend, which syncs with U1, is basically feature complete, unless I think of other features other than the above list. Most of my work will go into improving the UI and Trello integration.
