"This is probably the best implementation of a todo list in years. Kudos for approaching the concept from a new direction."
Unfortunately after mLab migrated to Atlas I was not able to make all the adjustments to keep it running with my current free time. Even if it is deprecated now, it is one of the projects that I feel most proud of.
Task Fighter started after learning and using some productivity planners to achieve goals.(Ink + Volt, Passion Planner, Bullet Journal) and others.
The basics is a Divide and Conquer method for planning:
I used google calendar to plan every week, but I wanted something that facilitates me the selection of time slots in the calendar for new tasks that came along during the week.
I don't really care when I have to do something, but I want to know that I have enough time left to do it and that it doesn't collide with other tasks.
So the idea was to have a tool that could add new task rapidly to the calendar. This tool should just with a time length and one parameter (in the office or out of office), add a new task to an empty time slot.
This idea got mixed with my personal love for productivity gamification apps ( Strict Workflow, Build Focus, Forest) and classic arcade games like Final Fight.
With all of this, I thought that it would be super cool to have the "Add Task" tool mixed with a web app that shows you your weekly tasks as a Beat'em Up game. Plus, all of it, connected to your google calendar.
So I made it.
