Todoist Shortcuts Nativefier
Todoist is a powerful todo-list and task manager. It offers a MacOS Application, which provides a dedicated application that has a quick task adding feature. The only issue is that Todoist doesn't have strong keyboard navigation and shortcuts. Enter todoist-shortcuts which is a browser extension that adds these missing functionalities to the web client. Unfortunately, there is no way to get this extension in the native application...
This allows us to inject the
todoist-shortcuts source code into the application providing the desktop application with keyboard shortcuts and navigation.
nativefier can pick it up and display the application with a proper badge count (and bounce on changes).
First, you install the dependencies:
Next, we need to download
npm run downloadTodoistShortcuts
Finally, we build the application:
npm run buildApplication
Workflow using Both Applications
I personally renamed the original application to
Todoist-native so the new application can be moved over to the application directory with no conflicts. I kept the original application as I still like the quick task adding feature. I hid the original application in the tray and prevent any notifications from appearing.
These changes then allow me to use the new application as my main Todoist application while retaining the quick task adding feature of the original application.
