Big and ugly bug fixed in donebox

Just a little announcement about donebox: between commits 8df5e6a10bfe29a41e989635cce9867a128a044c  (categories detachment from tasks) and 53ca27f1ffcce5ca3f4c3a52e6986fdc2da020e3, I introduced an ugly bug: when editing a specific task, every categories were displayed. Not really a problem if you were running your own donebox instance, but if you shared yours with complete strangers that was a real problem.


My apologies to everyone who meet a problem about it.


So, my donebox instance is now patched and running.


A last word: the next improvment to donebox will be a simple administration panel. Here the list of the features:

  • possibility to design administrators
  • possibility to block user registration
  • possibility to delete a user
  • possibility to lock a user

Next steps will be a plugin attempt (RailsEngine or Desert? I haven’t decided yet: every tips are welcome), then the last improvments to "donebox-core" will take place. You can stay in touch with the plans through my redmine instance.

Oh, by the way: have a merry christmas and an happy new year!

Donebox: shameful promotion

Last august, I put on github the marvelous to-do list manager (using RoR1) written last year by Marc-André Cournoyer (who released thin v1.0, great job, guy!). I just named: donebox (truly, the best to-do list manage EVER).


At this time, my only objective was to adapt it for Ruby on Rails 2.0 and fix a behavior or two. Now, I want to enhance donebox to open its horizon.


Here the main ideas:

  1. Move categories as a Model to add useful features as sorting, hiding, etc.
  2. Add hooks or plugin capabilities to permit non-intrusive extensions
  3. Develop greats plugins for every body use

Here my github donebox (work great on RoR2 now), and my redmine instance to organize that.


Of course, I’m open to every suggestion to enhance it.


BTW, a great THANK YOU to Marc-André Cournoyer, his work is just marvelous.
