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 organizing.

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 argument.

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.
