Here’s why you want this:
- You use a Mac
- You use Taskwarrior
- You have “task list” dumped to a file accessable online (preferably through cron)
Background: I have a cronjob that pumps the output of “task list” to a text file every 5 minutes. The text file is under a web directory of mine, so I’m able to see my current list of tasks from any location with web-access. I wanted a dashboard widget that sucked in the text file and displayed it. I tried using “Web Clip”, but the bounding box is static — which means you’re either stuck with too big of a box, or your text gets cut off.
Features: Here’s a simple widget that lets you replace the URL with a text file of your own. It dynamically resizes the window to fit the text file. I don’t anticipate having a long task list and I don’t like scrollbars.
File: You can find the latest version of TextPuller on GitHub at: https://github.com/Stantheman/TextPuller
Let me know if you have any suggestions!
