Support Remember the milk

Reported by Max Andersen | January 7th, 2014 @ 06:19 AM

I really like the idea of adding mails to my todo list similar to what is done for omnifocus, things etc. but I tend to use rememberthemilk.com.

Would it be possible to add support for it ?

it has an api available from http://www.rememberthemilk.com/services/api/

    It is certainly possible, but it seems I wouldn't be able to include such a bundle with MailMate: “At this time, the API is available for non-commercial use by outside developers (commercial use requires prior arrangement).”

    If you have the technical skills then I'll be happy to answer any questions if you want to try to create it yourself. I can create the basic bundle needed for MailMate, but you'll have to do the interaction with the “Remember the milk” API yourself. A quick look at the API indicates that you can create a task and then add a note to it, but it's never as simple as it first appears to be :-)

    If I could get some pointers then I would be interested to tinker ;)

    Sorry about the late reply, but I guess you have the technical skills and experience with bundles needed now. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Well, I moved to 2do.app because for that I didn't need to setup complex api keys so for now I don't personally have the need for creating remember the milk.

    But I was wondering how a bundle could somehow ask for parameters like users custom api key - is that possible ?

    Parameters could be saved within MailMate preferences using the defaults command, but this is of course a low-level solution (no GUI). I'm still considering how to best solve such issues. (A primitive solution would be to have a separate “Preferences” command in a bundle which used an AppleScript GUI to allow the user to change such a preference.)

    Naming the defaults variables should be done with a bit of care (bundle prefix). Shortly discussed here.
