This post is the first part of a series of tutorials for creating Foglight models, dashboards, and custom cartridges. For the rest of this series please visit the fglTasks page, you can find a complete list of my foglight posts here
Recently I decided to explore Foglight’s modelling abilities. Foglight allows you to do almost anything with its data modelling framework, and with infinite possibilities for projects, I decided to build a todo list manager, why? I have no idea. As it turns out, I learned alot more than just Foglight models, and I think its a good was to learn a lot of Foglight skills.
Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting all the steps involved in creating a fully fledged To Do list in Foglight, complete with alarms when items are overdue. I’ll update this post with links to all of the posts in the series. Before all that though, here’s a look at what we’re going to create:
Main Foglight ToDo Dashboard
|New Task Dialog box||
Alarm dialog showing overdue task
If you’d like to jump ahead of the class, I’ve exported the whole project into a cartridge file, which you can download here (Please visit the site to view this file) (Note that I can’t provide any guarantees or support for this cartridge, so play safely).
Once the cartridge is installed it will add a link to your “Homes” section called My Todo List, you can start adding your tasks and being more productive with Foglight.
