👋 Hello, Hunters! This project helps you achieve your goals and new year resolutions. 🤔 Why? We all, and more at the beginning of the year want to achieve some goals or build new habits, like learning a new language, finish a project or do more sport. In my experience, the best way to achieve your goals is using "Divide and Conquer". Divide the goal into doable tasks and do one at a time. You don’t need nothing more than a pen and a paper to make and follow your plans, but sometimes you need some external help to keep you motivated to maintain your plans "alive". That's why I created Task Fighter ...and because I love Pixel Art and Retro Gaming. 👾 🧐 How? The basics of using Divide and Conquer method for planning: 1.- Plan the goals you want to achieve this year. 2.- With point 1 in mind, plan this month's tasks to achieve your year's goals 3.- With point 2 in mind, plan this week's tasks to achieve your month's goals 4.- Repeat 3, each Sunday/Monday until the end of the month, and start again with 2 at the beginning of the next month Now is when Task Fighter comes to action. 5.- Place this week tasks on your calendar, and they will appear in task-fighter. Task Fighter will show you this week tasks as enemies you have to win. Making your tasks look like enemies will give you an extra motivation to accomplish them. Moreover, it will keep you adding tasks each week, so you can continue "playing" the game, and therefore keeping you planning. 💪 Features * Mark a Fight as Won: Checking it as done. * Mark a Fight as Lost: When you didn't manage to do the task, but you want to keep track of it. * Postpone a Fight: Move a task in the future. It will move it automatically to a free time slot. * Add a new Task: Add new tasks automatically to your calendar in a free spot, depending on your preferences. * Preferences: You can choose how much time you normally sleep, the time you spent in the office, etc. When adding a new task you can set if it is related to your work or not, and task fighter will place it on your calendar accordingly. * Hide the fight: So your boss won't think you are playing a video game. * Dashboard: To keep track of your weekly status * Extension: To receive notifications, and see the current tasks. * And more. 🤖 Development This is my first web project with a backend. Due to I focused on learning and delivering, there are no fancy frameworks here, just Node.js, Express, MongoDB, EJS, Bootstrap, JQuery, and a ton of gifs. ❤️ Thanks To everyone that helped and motivated me to finish it. Product Hunters were a big motivation, seeing all your projects, dedication and love you put to finish your products gave me the confidence to make this. Thank you 🤗
This is probably the best implementation of a todo list in years. Kudos for approaching the concept from a new direction.
@calebsylvest Thank you very much :)
This is so bad ass. But I was waiting for the character to actually fight all the To-Dos you've completed. Much more rewarding than a green checkmark.
@joshuapinter Thank you very much. I would also love to have the animations, but I didn't have the sprites for that. For the next version, I will most probably add some. Any animator or MUGEN user who wants to help? 😺
This is such a cool and original idea! A great take on the to-do list, love the street fighter / final fight style game nostalgia. Can’t wait to try it!
@marketshot Thank you very much.
