Sync between two installations of GTG

Asked by mzcmzc on 2011-05-05

Hi all,

Firstly let me say that GTG seems like an AWSOME piece of software. Flexible enough so I can set it up with the task structure/priorities etc I need, but no so complicated that it can't be easily used. Well done!

The only thing that I can't see how to do easily is have it stay in sync between two remove sites (work/home).

I realise I could do this by syncing the files, but reading the wiki it says that you should shut down gtg when doing that, ie it would like NEW files being dropped into the gtg directory while it's running. I guess I can script a shutdown/sync files/restart in the background, but is there a better way I'm not thinking of? I'd just rther leave it running all the time, that's all.

Some sort of lock file mechanism would be good so the underlying files could be safely replaced and gtg re-load them would be great. Can't tink of any other way given that the data is written automatically, and there is no load/save buttons etc.

Anyone have any other ideas?

Cheers, Michael.

a ubuntu-one based sync has been developed and will be released with the next gtg version.

Can you help with this problem?
