Making Toodledo look (a little) like 2Do

I’ve been using a lovely little program called 2Do on my iPad to keep on top of things. (I’m using a variant of the Getting Things Done system.) 2Do is a feast for the eyes.

But I don’t always want to be typing or thumbing on my iPad. And, sadly, it doesn’t look like there are any plans to create a 2Do web interface. However, 2Do syncs with a service called Toodledo, which does have a web interface. (A very clunky one..)

Fortunately, you can make any website (including Toodledo) look way better using an addon called Stylish. And so I set out trying to duplicate simulate evoke the 2Do interface.

Click here to install the style (and the Stylish addon if you don’t have it yet).

To fully evoke the 2Do look and feel, you should…

  • Use the latest version of Firefox (version 11 and above) or Chrome, or another browser that supports CSS 3 and the Stylish addon.
  • Purchase a pro version of Toodledo so that you can show subtasks. It was about 14 USD a year last time I checked.
  • Set Toodledo to display subtasks as Indented (Show > Subtasks : Indented)

It’s not perfect, but until an official 2Do web client is developed, this will keep me happy. Let me know if you find it useful!

    For implementing GTD you can use this this application:

    http://www.Gtdagenda.com

    You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, and a calendar.
    Syncs with Evernote and Google Calendar, and also comes with mobile version, and Android and iPhone apps.

    Love this design for toodledo as it’s the only one not cold and hard looking. One thing that could use improving though is that some of the words are in a silvery-gray color so light they are impossible to read against the yellowish background. You can see what I mean when you click to add a new task and the titles of the sections are in that color. Also, some pages look odd or mis-aligned. Update? Thanks
