Reason for creation

I'm a huge fan of Gina Trapani's todo.txt (http://todotxt.com/) hacks. One of my favorite hacks was the ability to use Samurize (http://lifehacker.com/software/plain-text/download-of-the-day-samurize-189273.php) and GeekTool (http://lifehacker.com/software/top/download-of-the-day--geektool-185802.php) to display your todo.txt on your desktop. However, Samurize only runs on Windows and GeekTool is OS X-only. Therefore, I created a SuperKaramba widget to display your todo.txt.

Features

It displays your todo.txt. No duh ;-)

You can also edit it by clicking on the Kate/KWrite icon in the bottom right corner.

Install

Extract the tar.gz to somewhere like ~/.kde/share/apps/superkaramba/themes/. Then, open up todotxt.theme in a text editor (like Kate or KWrite or emacs or vi or... you get the picture) and change the /home/andrew/todo.txt to the location of your todo.txt. Note that SuperKaramba does not support ~ (otherwise, I would have included it).

Thanks for this widget.
I have extract that file and copied to some place and created one todo.txt file because there was not such file and then change todo.txt path to that file.
But I can not run that yet.
May guide me for this problem ??

Thanks

Two suggestions:

1. Include "interval=1000" (or something similar) to get more instant feedback after editing todo.txt. When I first gave this a try, it looked like nothing happened.

2. As for ~/todo.txt, keeping this as a relative path works. So, "file="todo.txt"" instead of "file="/home/ashlux/todo.txt"". And, "onclick="kwrite 'todo.txt'"" instead of "onclick="kwrite '/home/ashlux/todo.txt'"".
