A while ago, I posted a little piece about my Backpack-inspired organisation tool, Rucksack. At the time, I only just got the basics working, and it was nowhere near “production ready”.
Now, it still isn’t really “production ready”, but it has drastically improved these past few months. In August, it started out looking like:
And now it looks like this:
Which to say the least, is a big improvement.
But “What’s new?”, you may ask. Well apart from the new grey spaced out look…
- You can now see a general overview of recent activity
- You can now upload files
- You can send emails to to pages
- Basic reminders have been implemented with email functionality
- Journals and Status (think Twitter) have been implemented
- Fed-up of the default page width? You can now resize Pages!
- Pages can now be shared to the public
- Client-side interface re-written in jQuery
- Bug fixes and stability improvements
So safe to say, a lot of improvements. But still, a long way to go before it is truly useful for every day organisation.
As always, Rucksack is open source and can be checked out on github.
