Just another todo app. Well, maybe not quite, because it can track projects, tasks and notes for tasks in multiple different workspaces. It looks nice because it's built with Bootstrap and is, to some extent, elegant code-wise because it was built with Backbone, Flask and CodernityDB.

Reason of Existence

This is my way to try out some new technologies in a project slightly more sophisticated than Hello World. Currently these technologies are:

  • Flask
  • CodernityDB

Try It Out

You can try the app live at http://fruitbar.dwimlabs.net/. May want to read the next section for details on security though.

Security and Privacy

If you have tried Fruitbar via the link above or have read the source code, you may now be wondering, "isn't not having passwords a bit insecure?" And the answer is no. As in "no, it's a whole lot insecure to not have passwords." But this is a research project and it isn't pretending to be secure. Keep in mind that everything you put in it everyone else may read or edit.
