Remember The Lens – Revamped

I want to start this post by thanking Pavel Shabardin as he created some new tickets on the GitHub page of Remember The Lens that caused new nice features to be brought to the project.

What’s new

  • Icons. I was willing to replace those ugly icons I made a while ago since a long time. I found some really nice ones on openclipart.org that gave the lens a new fresh look.
  • Preview. It is now possible to right-click on a task to get extra information.
  • Complete/Uncomplete tasks. On the preview screen, a button will appear to complete/uncomplete a task (depending on its current status). Very handy.
  • Show completed tasks. Because of that button above, it’s also good to show already completed tasks, so a “Complete” can be easily undone. A new “Show/Hide” section on the lens filters has a button for this.
  • Internationalization. The lens is now open to translations. I lost the Russian translation because I introduced new messages and changed existing ones. The Italian translation is of course there :).

Under the lens

Screenshots are more immediate than a video showing the lens at work (also, last time I wasn’t able to speak loud enough). Here are some.

Lens for Ubuntu Unity (12.04) to browse tasks on Remember The Milk

UPDATE: latest version

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

certified by Remember The Milk.

Ubuntu 12.04 is out, so I decided to update my lens for remember the milk to work in Unity 5.

Actually, the lens uses singlet, by Michael Hall (many thanks for your work), so the transition to Unity 5 has been flawless.

While I was there, I made some minor improvements (e.g. the due dates are now printed in a prettier format) and added a feature to sort tasks.

As usual, I screencasted the lens at work:

If you want to try it, you can get the source code here on gitHub.

I wrote two simple scripts to install and launch the lens. You can find instructions on the README file.

This is my third update for this Lens.

Unfortunately, as some of you might have noticed, the previous two have disappeared.

Anyway, here’s the last version of the Lens in all her splendor :D:
