Showing Omnifocus Tasks on Panic's Statusboard using Omnisync
 
I'd like to show my Omnifocus tasks on Panic's [URL="http://panic.com/statusboard/"]Statusboard[/URL]. Is there a solution or script that works with the Omnisync service to grab and format the data accordingly?

The only solution I currently know is using the [URL="http://derekr.net/focus-status/"]ofexport[/URL] script to read a local Omnifocus database and save the output to a Dropbox folder. Unfortunately this doesn't really work with iOS based workflows and seems to be quite easy to break.

Any alternatives? Ideas? Maybe something similar as ofexport working with Omnisync?

Thanks. However, as mentioned this is not what I was looking for as it only works locally, is easy to break and does not connect with Omnisync.

I just did a post about this yesterday in the "Script for a quick listing of OmniFocus statistics" thread (sorry but don't know how to link to it from here).

If you look that up, it might be something you're trying to accomplish. It works well for me.

Cheers

This solution is only any use if you leave your Mac on all the time but I use ofexport with Hazel.

Hazel monitors my OF database file for changes and then automatically exports the data. Since OmniFocus syncs periodically it'll never be too out of date.

I did consider trying to read the synced zip files but that was more work than reverse-engineering the database.
