An Extremely Simple Gmail Tasks Plugin
« on: March 28, 2009, 02:49:30 PM »
So I just discovered the Gmail Tasks app and have fallen in love. I know, I know, there's the Remember The Milk plugin, which is fantastic, but I wanted something simpler, and Gmail Tasks is perfect.

Initially, I set up an alias to send me there, but I hated having to press "Enter" to select the result that launched the htmlview, so I poked around, discovered the FScript plugin, and made a very simple plugin. Enjoy!

Holy cow this works great.. Beautiful!!!
I realize that the plugin is just a very thin wrapper over the google website interface, but its still damn cool.  :up:

Looks interesting  :Thmbsup:

A quick side note: the included FScript.dll looks like it may be version 1.8.

FWIW, ecaradec recently posted a link to a more recent version with at least one fix (though I don't know if 1.8 had the issue being addressed):

this is another reason we should try to move to fsubscript -- so it's only 1 fscript dll that can get centrally updated.

Thanks! Initially I was a little hesitant to post it, seeing how simple it was, but I find it so incredibly useful to be able to have such a clean todolist interface operated from FARR that I decided to go ahead.

Also, I updated the FScript.dll in the first post to be the updated one that ewemoa linked to.

IMHO, it's great that it's simple -- what a great example it can serve as  :Thmbsup:

I noticed that the plugin creates its own scrollbar (so you end up having 2 scrollbars visible).  Would it be possible for a future version to either:
1) disable the plugin's toolbar and use FARR's scrollbar exclusively (preferred)
2) disable FARR's scrollbar (possibly more realistic)

Thanks for the great plugin - I too like the simplicity of Google Tasks!

Can this plugin be modified somehow to work with Google Apps?

By default, it takes me to mail.google.com to log in, but I actually log in at mail.google.com/a/mydomain.com/. Maybe that's something that can be included in the plugin options?

Quick follow up:

I did some poking around in the plugin itself and found that if I replace this

Code: [Select]
FARR.setStrValue("launch", "htmlviewurl https://mail.google.com/tasks/ig");

in the FScript.js file, with this

Code: [Select]
FARR.setStrValue("launch", "htmlviewurl https://mail.google.com/tasks/a/MYDOMAIN.com/ig");

I get exactly the functionality I was looking for.

nice work jennifer  :up:
sounds like it might be nice to have an option in the next release of gmail tasks plugin to let user specify a custom domain.

I get a "FARR variable 'displayname' was not returned for ...path to...\frscript.js"

Any ideas?

Thx!!

drane, i'm not sure what the problem is, hopefully rufzid can help -- it sounds like maybe there is another plugin that is needed to work with this, or some missing file.
