Re: [Gtg-user] Discover Getting Thing Gnome and Zim, potential for collaboration
I have been looking into Getting things Gnome and this is room that I
see for making the programs collabrate:
For zim have a plugin that adds an "Turn into task" action. This action
would take a piece of text selected in the editor and pass it to gtg in
order to create a new task. If the text contains a bullet list bullets
couldbe turned into sub-tasks automatically. This would allow to use zim
as an "inbox" or brainstorm pad, and define tasks in gtg easily when
Also for zim have a way to link to gtg tasks by a url or similar.
Needed in gtg for this:
* commandline option to open a task by title / id / ..
* commandline option to read new task from stdin or something like that
Similarly in gtg one could have a url style to link to notes in zim -
this is easy as zim allready excepts notebook + page as commandline
After turning on experimental note support in gtg I see the "turn into
note" toggle for tasks. Would be nice to have an option making this call
zim and paste the contents into a new page in the notebook.
Needed in zim:
* commandline argument to read new note from stdin or something similar
Just my brainstorm dump, please let me know if you have other ideas.
