Feature Request - Export to Dynamic HTML Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I love OO3's ability to export Dynamic HTML. This is how I view my current kGTD data on my iPhone. I put together a handy little Automator app (gotta love Transmit's automator actions) which exports and then uploads the data to some webspace I have. The web folder is protected with a password I set up with Bravenet.

On the iPhone, the text is really teeny so I'm pinching a lot. And yeah, I can't input (I always carry my Hipster PDA and Fisher Bullet Pen for that - thanks Merlin Mann). But, the pros definitely outweigh the cons especially when your wife drags you to the mall and you want to remember the names of the books you wanted to check out at Borders.

Even though Omni's iPhone interface looks fantastic, it requires your computer to be on and connected to the internet (and at home for most convenience with ports, etc). This isn't so practical for laptop users I feel. Being able to export my OmniFocus file to Dynamic HTML would be a GREAT feature to have in OF -- and along with OF web interface - would keep me close to my data whenever I'm out and about.

Will this be a feature in the 1.0 release?
Will this be a feature in the 1.0 release?
I hope not. Omnifolks, please either ship 1.0 sooner, or with other features I care about more.

You could use my Export to OO scripts to send OmniFocus content to OmniOutliner, then export to dynamic HTML from there.

Once upon a time, when OmniOutliner had the monopoly on exporting to HTML, I used Curt's scripts (plus QuicKeys) to publish client-specific task lists to my Web site. The dynamic HTML was impressive.

When OmniFocus added Export to Simple HTML, I appreciated the simplicity of staying within a single application.

It would be nice if OmniFocus learned the Dynamic HTML trick from its sibling.

I submitted a feature request vote for this as well...
You could also probably string Curt's script together with the OmniOutliner export to HTML actions in Automator, save that to your OF scripts folder, and then add it to the toolbar for a one stop solution.
