Theme for Taskpaper 3 for notes-first users


#1

I’ve put a theme together and packaged it up on github.

I call it theme-notes-first:

You’ll like it if you:

  • Use notes items more than you use tasks items. For example, I indent a lot, I write objectives more than I write todos, and I save the dashed lines for emphasizing certain lines.
  • Prefer re-ordering lines by cut-and-pasting with keyboard shortcuts
  • Like the handle to collapse lines
  • Like your clickable links to be subtle
  • Like your tags to be even more subtle

Here’s how it looks:

To install, the instructions are on github. A few terminal commands to put in and you’re set. The trick allows you to keep it updated and make your own tweaks too.

Hope you like it. Big thank you to Jesse for Taskpaper 3.

For those running the 3.1 or later, here’s a version that:

  • Reduces the line-height-multiple to tighten up each item’s line-spacing
  • Adds margin instead in between each item, using the new paragraph-spacing-before property

To update your theme-notes-first if previously installed:

# Download the latest version of the theme
cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Taskpaper/theme-notes-first
git checkout master; git pull origin master

# Backup the previous theme.less and copy theme.less from theme-notes-first
cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Taskpaper/
mv theme.less theme-backup.less && cp -p theme-notes-first/theme.less theme.less

To install from scratch:

# Download theme to Application Support directory
cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Taskpaper/
git clone https://github.com/pascallaliberte/theme-notes-first.git

# Backup the previous theme.less and copy theme.less from theme-notes-first
mv theme.less theme-backup.less && cp -p theme-notes-first/theme.less theme.less

The Notes-first theme has been updated for 3.3, for those who use Taskpaper mainly for the notes items (and the dashed items sparingly)

Small change:

The handle for the collapsed items is now slightly-bigger than the rest, and dark gray instead of black.

Thanks @jessegrosjean for the handle-size property.
