Some progress

Sync

I have been absent from this blog for awhile, as I have been spending every moment available on getting ReVuDo to sync with Nozbe.  The actual syncing part took a few weeks before I was satisfied.  The real issue was getting the new information to appear on the screen short of restarting ReVuDo.

ReVuDo is written using Microsoft’s WPF technology.  Part of my motivation for writing ReVuDo was to learn WPF, so the project occasionally hits a speed bump when I run into something I do not yet know how to do.  The trick of getting the windows to update with the new information turned out to be a major, and surprising, road block.  After a lot of reading and researching I was lucky to come across Michael L Perry’s Update Controls.  More reading and testing ensued as I learned how to apply this new tool.  Finally, this weekend it all came together. I started ReVuDo, went to nozbe.com, added a new project to Nozbe, and then clicked Sync in ReVuDo.  The new project seamlessly appeared in ReVuDo.

Now I still have some work and testing to do, but version 0.4 with one-way sync to Nozbe should be finished soon.  By one-way I mean that initially ReVuDo will accept updates from Nozbe, but not allow you to change anything from ReVuDo.  So many changes have been made inside ReVuDo, that I do not want to risk anyone’s data.  After we have all had a chance to test the new version, I will open it up to allow changes as the next step.

Thank you for your patience.  Good things are coming.

  3. Thank you both for the encouragement. More progress last night, so there are only two known bugs left. I’ll try to fix those tonight and run it through more testing. Should be able to release an update before Christmas :).
