CRToDo is a to-do managing application similar to RememberTheMilk but restricted to basic features.
CRToDo consists of two parts:
- The server is written in Ruby and offers a RESTful webservice.
- OpenID 2.0 login
- Managing multiple to-do lists
- Adding simple, one-line to-do entries
- Ordering to-do entries by drag-and-drop
- Finishing and deleting to-do entries by drag-and-drop
- History of finished to-do entries
To use the service you can either go to http://todo.livoris.de/ or install it on your own server.
- Ruby 1.8.6 or newer
- RubyGems 1.3.5 or newer
- Sinatra 0.9.6
- Ruby JSON implementation 1.2.0
- Ruby-OpenID 2.1.7
- RSpec 1.2.9 for running the tests
- RCov 0.9.7.1 for test coverage
- Reek 1.2.1 for code style
- fcgi 0.8.8 for FastCGI
- fcgiwrap 0.1.6 for FastCGI
To start the CRToDo server with the built-in webserver, start a terminal and change to the directory where you downloaded CRToDo and type the following command:
$ rake run
As can be seen by the ouput of the command, the WEBrick webserver starts on port 4567. The web interface can now be accessed by typing http://localhost:4567/ into the browser.
To configure FastCGI in your webserver please refer to your webserver's documentation. An example configuration for Apache might look like below.
<VirtualHost myhost:80> ServerName todo.livoris.de DocumentRoot /.../crtodo DefaultMaxClassProcessCount 1 </VirtualHost>
RewriteEngine on AddHandler fcgid-script .fcgi Options +FollowSymLinks +ExecCGI RewriteRule ^(.*)$ dispatch.fcgi [QSA,L]
You need to make sure that the
data and the
openid directory exist and are writable by the webserver.
dispatch.fcgi the file
/srv/fastcgi/todo.log is configured as logfile. Make sure the path exists and is writable by the webserver.
If the error message "return_to path does not match" is displayed after the OpenID login then the Ruby OpenID implementation used the rewritten FastCGI path that obviously does not match the path of the original request. This is a bug in the Ruby FastCGI implementation and can be fixed by changing the line
[:scheme, :host, :port, :path].each do |meth|
[:scheme, :host, :port].each do |meth|
ruby-openid-2.1.7/lib/openid/consumer/idres.rb line 199.
Apart from all the other components, this project is notably inspired by the simplicity and power of Sinatra and jQuery. The icons were provided under the Creative Commons Attribution License by the Axialis Team.
