Lately, I have been exploring requirejs, backbonejs. I like the way requirejs lets you define frontend dependencies with just few lines of code. Its just beautiful. Backbone on the other hand have matured enough now. So I decided to build something using these two. Yea, its one of those programmer’s bug which make you cranky if you don’t build something.
As a result, I built Tasks. Is a small app that helps you managing your todo list. Its simple, because it just presents a single list of todos. Nothing fancy, no categories, no distracting colors.
Why? Because, I think you should be the one managing your todo list. Not the other way around. There are a lot of todo apps in the market. But all of them are either complicated or not give you better control.
I also used gestures for it using Hammer.js. Its based on gestures. There is no button for any action. All the actions are handled using gestures.
For building it, I used Apache Cordova. Which is another beautiful piece of software that lets you build cross platform mobile apps. Most of the people use Phonegap. I don’t particularly like the concept of Phonegap. Not because its bad, but because, I like to do things on my own. Phonegap is a great service and can save you a lot of building time.
