The only request I have is to allow the user the option to store the files on the server so they can have the files self hosted.

That looks great Jeff. The Dropbox integration is nicely done - very
smooth. The 2 key things you'll need (IMO) are filtering and sorting.
For todotxt.net, filtering is basic but pretty flexible. You get a
multi-line text box which has:
- one free-text filter per line
- filters are AND'd together
- to exclude a term, start the line with a '-', eg - <at> work
- due date filtering: due:today, due:past, due:future or due:active
(today and past)
So if you wanted to see all of your work tasks due today, except for
priority A, you could do something like
As a first step I'd just worry about a single-line free-text filter.
The other options are nice but complicate the UI and the code a bit.
We also allow 3 saved filters, which you can switch between easily.
We have the following sort options (most of which were
user-requested): alphabetical, completed date, due date, context,
project, creation date, priority, order in file. We also have a
grouping option, where tasks are grouped by your sort order, which
ends up looking something like:
(A) email boss <at> work
(B) cry in the corner <at> work
(A) watch True Detective <at> home
Anyway, that's just a couple of ideas from someone who's been down a
Look forward to seeing how you progress.
