Tracks Discuss is moving to Google Groups - please sign up to subscribe to the new list

Dear all,

You may have seen my earlier messages about having to move this mailing 
list quickly because I have to move all my domains off Joyent. Well, 
thanks to the hard work of Dan Rice (ably assisted by Reinier Balt), the 
list and all the archives has now moved to a Google Group called 
TracksApp:

https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/tracksapp

This Mailman list will be closing very soon, so if you are still 
interested in remaining subscribed to the list, please join the new 
Google Group. Once you have done so, you can post to the list using the 
following email address:

tracksapp@...

Please note that the emails will now have the subject prefix 
[Tracks-discuss], so if you had mail rules or filters set up, you may 
want to adjust them appropriately.

The new group has a lot of nice facilities, and is actually somewhat 
better set up for a group of contributors to administer than Mailman 
was, so I think it is a step in the right direction!

Thanks to all of you who have contributed to the old Mailman list, and 
long live the new list! Many thanks again to Dan and Reinier for their 
speedy and very proficient work in getting the new list set up and the 
old archive imported.

tracks cache-enabled

Hi all,

I've tried the new cache-digests gem to easy add caching to Tracks. 
(I had to clone the gem to enable it running on ruby 1.8.7)

I have cached Todo, Context (different for home page, tag page and tickler)
and Project. This brought nice speed improvements for server-rendering.

For who is interested, it is currently on the add_cache branch if you want
to test it out. I've added bullet and rack-mini-profiler there too. The
second is enabled in development only so you can see the difference. Be sure
to enable caching in development in config/environments/development.rb if
you try this from development environment. Production has caching enabled by
default.

Please note: The biggest culprit right now is the javascript performance.
This is not affected in any way by this caching

N.B. This message is cross-posted to the old and new mailing list. This list
will be closed shortly. The new list is at
https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=en&fromgroups=#!forum/tracksapp

FW: Changing default text colors

Forgot to include the list…

You can change the colors in the stylesheet of Tracks. It can be found in /path/to/tracks/public for versions up to 2.1. It is in /path/to/tracks/app/assets/stylesheets for the 2.2devel version.

What file(s) do I need to edit to change the default "red on black" text to something a little more readable (I'm thinking yellow on black would work better).

 

Thanks.

As some of you may have seen on Twitter or elsewhere, Joyent has rather 
controversially ended its commitment to hosting those of its customers 
who bought Lifetime accounts:

https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/ex-joyeurs

I was one of those Lifetimers :-(

That means that I've got to find a new host for my own blog and a few 
other things, but more urgently, I need to find a new home for this 
mailing list. This is currently hosted on Joyent and I suspect that it 
might be somewhat of a pain to move. Luckily we had already moved the 
getontracks.org site off Joyent on to Github, so we don't have to sort 
that out.

Anyway, does anyone have any suggestions for what we should do? The 
problem is that they are just deleting everything at the end of October, 
which give me very little time to act (I have a holiday coming up in 
just over a week, and then the very busy start of term).

The way I see it, we have a few alternatives (not necessarily mutually 
exclusive):

* Just find somewhere to archive the old mailing list (static HTML if I 
can get it?) and move to a new system
* I could see if I could set up a new mailing list at my new host 
(wherever that might be) and try to port it over
* Start afresh and ditch the archives
* something else?

I'm not even sure what's out there in terms of Mailman alternatives? 
I've seen a few specialist mailing list providers, but they are 
typically set up for large commercial ventures and so are overkill/too 
expensive for what we need.

HALP! :-( Any suggestions welcome.

cheers,

bsag

drop down lists of contexts, tags or projects

Hello,


My installation of Tracks (2.1.1) is not showing drop downs of contexts, tags or projects when I am adding new actions (or projects). I have used some of the hosted services, so know how the feature is supposed to look, but for mine (installed on CentOS using the Bitnami installer) it is not working. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Regards

Andrew Horton

Tracks as Rails 3 engine

Hello,

I was wondering if Tracks can be also distributed as a rails 3 engine.
Then, it would be made available as a gem and it would be easier to integrate 
it in other apps. Any thoughts?

thanks,

Steve

Create new context bug

Hi,


Every time I create a new task, I am asked to confirm whether I am happy to create the new context. Unfortunately, this happens every time, even if the context does actually exist. Is this a known bug? How can I fix?

Question about repeating / recurring todos...

Hi all,


I love using Tracks and have just updated to 2.1 after excitedly noticing the BitNami installer has been updated.

I was hoping that an issue / my misunderstanding with repeating / recurring todos had been cleared up in the new version, but I still cannot fathom it. I wonder if anyone out there can explain to me how it works?

For example, I'm trying to setup a recurring reminder for the start of every quarter to begin a new budget spreadsheet. Quarters begin on the 01-Aug, 01-Nov, 01-Feb and 01-May. I put in the following:

Description
  Begin a new budget spreadsheet

Recurrence period
  Monthly

Starts on
  1/8/2012

Ends on
  No end date

Settings for monthly recurring actions
  Day 1 on every 3 months

Set recurrence on
  the date that the todo is due
  Show the todo 0 days before the todo is due

This, I am expecting, will create a task in the tickler for 01-Aug, but it doesn't - the first task is dated 01-Nov, three months later.

Ah ha!, I say - for some reason I don't understand, it's skipping the first occurrence - I'll setup a new recurring reminder using exactly the same details, but this time set to start on 01-May. However, this time the first task in the tickler is scheduled for 01-Oct (not part of the three month cycle at all) !

I would certainly appreciate your input into this to help me set these things up reliably...

Thank you in advance for your time and assistance,

Simon

Re: big-picture question

Hi F,

 

Sorry to hear. I hope things improve with Tracks/Rails in the future so you can try again!

Onderwerp: Re: [Tracks-discuss] Re: big-picture question

 

I agree with Eric,

I follow this list, but actually have given up on using Tracks since I was unable to teach myself or dreamhost.com enough about some gems/packages/dependencies/whatever there was required.

 

I'm really sad, I loved and would have loved to deploy it for our local project network but I couldn't get it work - and no, I also couldn't get the installers to work - nor did the former dreamhost setup guide help, sadly.

 

So, unfortunately I can't use it nor advertise it ... even though I'd love to.  Why? I want a complete system with calendars, to do lists, project management, PIM on my own servers, open source and what not - I don't want to use foreign servers etc ...

 

if there ever is a version that is easier to install, I'd try it again ;)

Thanks

Hi Eric,

 

Installing Tracks from the zipped distribution requires technical knowledge. But for users who are not proficient in that area, there are other options mentioned in the installation manual, such as hosted tracks (like gtdify) or ready-made installers (like BitNami). So I think that there are a lot of options for installation

 

Long term goals are difficult to define. We are currently short on developers with spare time, so progress is made, but limited.

 

Data portability needs someone with an itch :-) Since Tracks tends to become integral part of peoples life, this needs to work perfectly.

 

Regards,

 

Reinier

 

 

Hello, everyone. I have been using Tracks for six months, and it has become an integral part of my life. After trying several other GTD-based systems, I have found that Tracks is uniquely suited for my workflow. I wanted to express my thanks to all those involved in its development.

 

However, I would also like to express a concern. Let me start by saying that I am not a programmer or web admin by trade. I dabble in both, and know just enough to make me dangerous.

Am I correct in stating that the audience for Tracks at this point is primarily programmers and systems administrators? After having implemented Tracks on two different systems, it is my impression that Tracks is inaccessible to the majority of users. Set up requires a) command-line access to an Apache server, b) knowledge of package management systems, c) cursory knowledge of MySQL, and d) a working knowledge of Rails. This excludes almost everyone I know who would benefit from Tracks.

 

What are the long term goals for Tracks? Is there any thought of developing Tracks to be accessible for more people? Or has that role already been filled by other commercially available software (like rememberthemilk.com)? Are there any plans to improve data portability?

 

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this.

 

Eric
