Just realized that for some reason, I've been running Fargo v0.77 this morning. I did a shift-refresh to make sure v0.80 was loaded and that appears to fix the calendar node.
For some reason the calendar items that I created on my profile outline are not appearing. I sent an email to the Fargo Google group and Dave suggested adding a new item, waiting a while, and seeing if that fixes it. That did not work.
Next, I deleted the Calendar headline, going to start over.
Does anyone know why neither the Cmd nor the Ctrl key on the Logitech Ultrathin keyboard for the iPad does not work in Fargo? Cmd+c and Cmd+v work as expected, but not Cmd+r or Cmd+l nor does the Ctrl equivalents. Based on the outliner menu it appears Fargo recognizes the Ctrl keys.
This occurs in both Safari and Chrome on the iPad.
Requesting desktop site doesn't help.
It's hard to tell whether the problem is with the browser or Fargo. This keyboard has both Cmd and Ctrl keys, and I imagine other external keyboards for the iPad have the same, and it would be nice to get these keyboards to work to work with Fargo.
I just thought of testing using Fargo with my iPad and the Logitech keyboard
Darn, the control and and command key functions don't appear to be working.
I wonder if it matters whether I use Safari or Chrome. Right now I am using Chrome
Nope, doesn't matter, it doesn't work in Safari either. I wonder if there is some setting?
Discovered another online editor that uses markdown called wri.pe.
Wrote a blog post about the Jawbone UP time zone issue that I have been experiencing.
Testing the new calendar feature in Fargo 0.75
Created an example of an outline with simple markdown notation that can ultimately be used to create an MS Word document.
File, Open by URL the following; https://dl.dropbox.com/s/sqkdjlvowgn48i9/markdownToHtmlExample.opml
Use add the markdown prefixes for header levels as shown in the example
File, Save As Markdown
The resulting HTML looks like this
Download to your PC, open the HTML file in MS Word, save as a document. The resulting document looks like this
An outline of topics that I am researching to learn more about
This is a simple to-do list outline, where I put things that I need to remember to complete.
This is my outline of topics to write about and publish on my Real Personal Computing blog
After checking out the phone version of Fargo, I am not sure that having the same tabs across all devices is the behavior that I want. I think I prefer to only have the tabs that I open on my phone stay open, while the tabs that I open on my desktop are only for the desktop that I use.
An alternate solution may be a more elegant display of open tabs on phones by following the convention of sliding left and right to expose menu options. As an example see the Facebook mobile app.
After updating my work note about the comments question with the information about Fargo v0.69, I thought I would send the updated item to the Fargo community feed.
I wrote my original question on May 20th in my work notes and published it to the feed.
I could send the update to the feed, but since the item has long scrolled off the list, the update does not appear.
I could just send the new node with the update, but then context would be lost. A better solution I think is that if an update is made to an item previously sent to the feed, but no longer visible on the feed page, then the update gets re-published to the top of the feed list so that it can be seen.
As the outlines that we create get larger, we are going to have a greater need to search within outlines to find information.
For example, in an earlier work note I asked the question about whether comment nodes are ignored when publishing to Wordpress. As of Fargo v0.69 they are. With the new information, I wanted to update the note I written, but I didn't remember the date.
I did a Ctrl-F in Chrome to search on the word "comments" but nothing was found because I collapse all but the current day's notes.
I then selected Outliner, Expand Everything to expand all nodes, then did a Ctrl-F to re-run the search, which this time was successful. In fact, it's even better in Chrome because it finds items as you type.
While the process I performed works, it feels a little clunky. I think a real search ought to be able to find words regardless of whether it is in a collapsed node, and upon finding such a word automatically expands the nodes within which they exist.
Signed up for and quickly checked out Markable.in to look at the markdown version of Fargo. I didn't realize that Fargo is using Markdown to generate HTML rather than saving or outputting to Markdown.
You could use the Save As Markdown feature to generate HTML that can be pulled in to Word or Google Docs
Requires you to use Markdown syntax in your outline for proper generation.
What people want is an OPML to Microsoft Word conversion utility
Any.do: I just added the following task:"Check employee stock purchase website" and an "Apps" link appears to the right of the task in the task list. When I tap it a small list of Finance apps appear from the play store. It doesn't appear to do a local search so it doesn't find the finance apps already on my device.
Most RSS apps import/export RSS subscriptions in OPML
If it is RSS, how does one maintain the file? If it is supposed to be OPML subscription list, shouldn't it be in the OPML format?
Nope, I added another node and pointed it to the OPML subscription list of my River2 river and it just shows the raw OPML file
Is the purpose for Add Feed to provide a link to a RSS file for one to subscribe to, or is the purpose to display a list of RSS feeds?
I am trying to include an OPML file I have created in Fargo to my profile.
Hey, there is a Get Public Link in the File menu.
Once you have the public link you can use it for the include
You should now see my blog posts outline included in my profile
Need a public link (see above)
Open by URL in Fargo opens in read-only mode, can't edit
Tried Add Include, and it works (See my profile)
Does this mean that I can't edit included outlines with Fargo, that doesn't make sense.
If it doesn't already, I would really like the Add-in to ignore comment nodes and not send them to Wordpress. Doing so would enable me to integrate research notes with what I write and eventually publish.
As of Fargo 0.69 comment nodes are ignored when posting to Wordpress. Cool!
I am currently NOT using Fargo for any of my "work" work because I can't trust Dropbox for that type of information. I use the OPML Editor for my local outlines, but I fear that the attention being given to Fargo means OMPL Editor might be reaching end of life. I wouldn't mind consolidating to Fargo for all of my outlining needs, but I need secure storage.
New Google Maps APIs
If you log on to an app from one device, then go to another, you will already be logged in. Is that safe?
You can now use Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ to log on to apps
I've used all of them, but feel most comfortable with Twitter, probably because it has the least amount of my info.
Persistent connections between your servers and Google, allows scaling up
Upstream messaging, send data from the app to the servers. (Right now you can push messages to apps on devices, but now apps can push back to servers.)
I definitely want this feature!
Google supports this cross platform rather than locked in to one, like Microsoft's
Cloud save: save user data across different devices. Pick up game play between devices
Demo didn't work. Such is life of live demos/keynotes. :)
Killed the app then restarted on my Galaxy Note
Updates seen in the Android app will be moving to the web app
Subscription music service (Going at Spotify)
Can preview selections and remove them
Can reorder the items
Automatically relates albums not in the locker made by the same artist
Works as a web app and on tablets
I think I would rather stay with Spotify
Prefaced that "this is not a device give away"
Available directly via Google Play
16 GB of memory
Bootloader unlocked/SIM unlocked
Sys updates direct from Google
Sells June 26; $649 (expensive, nervous applause)
I've got to run off to a meeting, so I'll have to catch up later. Segwaying to Chrome
Scanning The Verge live blog
Data compression for mobile web/Chrome
Google+ stream going three columns
Automatically adding hashtags (hmmm...)
iOS and web too
Lots of improvements for photos in Google+
Google Now is curently up (and I have to go to another meeting.... sigh)
Ok, long title now appears, so apparently it took a little time to take effect.
I've named this outline frank-notes and I have set a long title. For some reason the long title is not appearing when you access the worknotes by name.
I've created my profile outline and tested it in the Fargo feed. Now I am going to name this work notes outline.
Is the Community Feed going to be organized in some way? As people add items the feed outline will become very long, I imagine contributions will either fall off at some time, or be collapsed under a node, perhaps by date?
Once more, with feeling!
Ideas to improve Fargo should go to the community feed. Here is how to to do it.
All baking done on premises.
