AR\ Instapaper – Search articles in all folders

Accelereader for Instapaper - Search in all folders
Accelereader for Instapaper – Search in all folders

 

The article search in Accelereader popup now lists matching articles in all1 your folders, and not just the Home folder.

The extension still shows top 20 articles from your home folder by default. However, when searching for something, it looks through all your folders, and lists matching articles by recency.

When searching across all folders, the name of folder is displayed under the article’s title, after the website name.

Other minor updates

When an article is removed from the list on Instapaper.com (archived / moved / deleted), the focus automatically moves to next article in the list.

Fixed some other bugs, and minor background improvements.

Todo.txt for Chrome – Support for threshold dates

ver. 2017.1025.5.4

Threshold dates

Todo.txt for Chrome now automatically parses the threshold dates, and hides task with dates in the future.

Threshold dates are read in the ‘t:yyyy-mm-dd‘ format. ‘today‘, ‘tomorrow‘ and ‘yesterday‘ may also be used in place of date string.

To see all tasks, including those in the future, add ‘t:all‘ to the filter field.

Filter overdue tasks

Use ‘due:overdue‘ to see all tasks that are past their due date.

This also works in combination with other operators. E.g ‘-due:overdue‘ shows tasks that are not over due, and ‘(A) due:overdue‘ only shows high priority tasks that are overdue.

The full list of filter operators is available here.

Minor updates & bug fixes

  1. Update: Saving a filter with the same name as an existing filter, replaces the existing filter. The app asks for confirmation before replacing.
  2. Bug fix: +Projects (sometimes @contexts or #tags) were getting appended to some tasks as ‘due:+project‘. Fixed.
  3. Bug fix: Input in filter field was delayed by a key until enter or escape were pressed. Fixed.

AR\ Instapaper – *Expire* old articles

Having a lot of unread articles in your Home folder can present a strong mental hurdle against reading any, or even opening the app.

The new ‘expire old posts feature helps by automatically moving old articles out of sight – helping reduce the stress of encountering too many unread articles when you open Instapaper.

When using Instapaper on Chrome, the articles in expired folder do not count towards unread articles count. Nor is the count of unread articles in this folder displayed.

You may use the settings on options page to manage days before articles are expired.
(Default is 90 days – approx 3 months)

Other minor update

When moving an article to another folder on Instapaper.com, selecting a folder using keyboard (up/down keys) will also scroll the selected folder into view.

Todo.txt for Chrome – Updates to the task editor, and more

version 2017.0703.4.22

Task editing updates

Changes made to task editor to add date selectors, support completed tasks, and more:

Edit dates using date selector

You may now edit task dates – due dates & completion dates – using a date selector, instead of typing them in. The original method of just typing them works too.

Add completed tasks

Add completed tasks by starting them with ‘x‘. E.g.:

x Added new filtering options to filter by dates, completion status, and (no) priority

If no date is specified after ‘x’, the completion date is set as today. You may also use the date selector to choose another completion date.

Edit completed tasks

You may now edit completed tasks, including completion dates, priority, projects, etc.

Also, the tag for priorities on completed tasks now uses a lowercase ‘pri:‘, instead of the earlier title case ‘Pri:‘.

Use cleaner, multiple task editor by default

If you like keeping your task editor clean, you can set up the multiple task editor as your default task adding screen. This setting is available under Options > Other Settings.

This setting only changes the behaviour of Add Task button. The keyboard shortcuts still open the single add task editor (a​), and multiple add task editor (m).

Task list changes

Confirm task delete

Deleting a task – from button or keyboard shortcut (#) – will now create a confirm prompt. This is a safety precaution to prevent data loss, since task deletion is irreversible.

Changed order of dates for task lists

The order in which dates are listed below a task in the list has been updated to:

  1. Task creation date, followed by
  2. Due date (if any), and
  3. Task completion date (if complete)

If you encounter any bugs/issues, or have suggestions for changes, please do let me know using the feedback form.
