<h2><abbr title="Getting Shit Done">GSD</abbr></h2>
<p>This simple web application gives you <em>Contexts</em> and <em>Next Action</em> lists.
Use them for good <em>and not for evil</em>. A Context is a place,
tool, or person that you need to get a job done. A Next Action is a
short note about a concrete step you need to take. Confused? <span id="gtd-rtfm">Read the book.</span></p>

Over the years, I've tailored this down to my own flow. I noticed I was abusing <a href="http://www.evernote.com/about/referrer?code=Aust0964">Evernote</a> and other notebooks by mixing in my <strong>&quot;Next Action&quot;</strong> lists with Project materials and reference materials. Enter... <abbr title="Getting Shit Done">GSD</abbr>.</p>
<div id="usage-example">
<h3>Example of Using GSD:</h3>
<p>I want to see my Shopping list when I'm at the Grocery store, so under the <em>Grocery context</em>, I create:</p>
<ul>
<li>Buy Field Roast</li>
<li>Buy Swiss Cheese</li>
<li>Buy Rye Bread</li>
</ul>
</div>
<div id="gsd-privacy">
<h3 id="usage-privacy">Privacy</h3>
<p> All your data is stored on your local device. There is no login. Think of it as sticky notes on your monitor.</p>
</div>
<div id="usage-devices">
<h3>Mobile / Desktop</h3>
<p>This app is usable on a Desktop Computer, Mobile Phone, or Tablet's web browser. On Apple mobile devices, just bookmark the <a href="http://getting.shitdone.org/">Homepage</a> and add to your <strong>home screen</strong>. You'll get the shiny launch icon, etc.</p>
<p>And that's it. Simple, no?</p>

<div id="why">
<h2>Why&quest;</h2>
<p>I hacked on <span class='continous'>Getting Shit Done</span>, so I could learn the Firefox 4
<a href="https://developer.mozilla.org/en/IndexedDB/IndexedDB_primer">IndexededDb</a> APIs, <a href="http://www.alistapart.com/articles/responsive-web-design/">Responsive</a> and <a href="http://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?933">Mobile First Design</a> methods, and to exercise my UX / Design skillz. I ended up using the <a href="http://jquerymobile.com/">jQuery Mobile</a> UI libraries for the Desktop and mobile verion.</p>
<p><em>In my infinite wisdom</em>, I hadn't realized that no mobile
browsers (including our beloved <a href="http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/mobile/">Firefox Mobile Beta</a>) supported IndexedDb, so I also whipped up a sqlite backend. Currently I don't have code for Chrome's IndexedDb, but the webkit API is slightly different and the spec is in flux, so &hellip; low priority.</p>

<h3>Your ideas</h3>
<p>You can run this app off the index.html file on <a href="http://getting.shitdone.org">Getting.ShitDone.org</a> or grab the files and run it on your own website. Hack on it! Add features!</p>
<p>I've got some <a href="https://github.com/ozten/gsd/wiki/RoadMap">other things</a> I'd like to hack on like an <a href="http://unhosted.org">Unhosted</a> sync, Options page to edit contexts, etc...</p>
<p>But, better yet, you've got ideas!!! <a href="http://github.com/ozten/gsd/issues">File bugs</a> or <a href="#">write up a wiki pages</a>. Fork me on <a href="http://github.com/ozten/gsd/">Github</a> and make it better.</p>
