Reason for creation

I'm a huge fan of Gina Trapani's todo.txt (http://todotxt.com/) hacks. One of my favorite hacks was the ability to use Samurize (http://lifehacker.com/software/plain-text/download-of-the-day-samurize-189273.php) and GeekTool (http://lifehacker.com/software/top/download-of-the-day--geektool-185802.php) to display your todo.txt on your desktop. However, Samurize only runs on Windows and GeekTool is OS X-only. Therefore, I created a SuperKaramba widget to display your todo.txt.

Features

It displays your todo.txt. No duh ;-)

You can also edit it by clicking on the Kate/KWrite icon in the bottom right corner.

Install

Extract the tar.gz to somewhere like ~/.kde/share/apps/superkaramba/themes/. Then, open up todotxt.theme in a text editor (like Kate or KWrite or emacs or vi or... you get the picture) and change the /home/andrew/todo.txt to the location of your todo.txt. Note that SuperKaramba does not support ~ (otherwise, I would have included it).

Credits

Andrew Min (me) for creating the theme
The Samurize people for inspiring me
Gina Trapani for the great idea of todo.txt in the first place
net_efekt for creating the background (original image: http://www.flickr.com/photos/wheatfields/1803278949/).
Everaldo for the edit icon
SuperKaramba, because this obviously wouldn't have been possible without them
God, because without him, I wouldn't be here

Thanks for this widget.
I have extract that file and copied to some place and created one todo.txt file because there was not such file and then change todo.txt path to that file.
But I can not run that yet.
May guide me for this problem ??

Thanks

Two suggestions:

1. Include "interval=1000" (or something similar) to get more instant feedback after editing todo.txt. When I first gave this a try, it looked like nothing happened.

2. As for ~/todo.txt, keeping this as a relative path works. So, "file="todo.txt"" instead of "file="/home/ashlux/todo.txt"". And, "onclick="kwrite 'todo.txt'"" instead of "onclick="kwrite '/home/ashlux/todo.txt'"".

maybe you can use the $HOME variable?
