Great article on how to integrate Google Tasks within a linux desktop using Prism, and then integrating within the Ubuntu indicator applet using alltray.
Recently I switched to Gmail Tasks from Remember the Milk because I long thought the latter to be a little to cluttered for my taste. I wanted something more lightweight and quick. Gmail Tasks is a perfect fit: it’s quick to add new tasks, you can have several task lists, you can create sub tasks. That’s basically all I need at the moment.
Gmail Tasks exists primarily in your Gmail account, but you can put it almost everywhere since it is just a web page. This is how you integrate with the Ubuntu desktop:
Accessing Tasks Outside Your Browser
To be able edit your Tasks on you desktop, you need to install a program called Prism (package:
prism). If you want to, you can also install other predefined applications such as Gmail, Google Calendar by installing the packages
prism-google-calendar (there are more similar packages available).
