Nexty Updates

Nexty Logo

I made some more updates to nexty. Still not packaged – give me a little more time. In the meantime, try out the demo

There is one really cool feature in this release – but it is for Linux Users only. I made a command line script that integrates with Nexty – you can add tasks directly from the console. It needs the curl command – so not available in windows.

But then again, who uses the terminal in windows?

Anyway this uses the concept I introduced in CLI Twitter. If you want to try it, login to Nexty and go to the settings page. If you are on a linux system, you will see a Download Nexty Shell Script section. Just follow the instructions there.


  1. Love your cli for twitter. How cool can you get! I did kind of the same thing a few years back for my employer. Built a www based fax server with just a few lines of code using an old cli efax app and os X server. It worked great but I guess was just too simple!

    I do have a point. OS X is a viable unix platform that uses mostly freeBSD underpinnings. A powerbook is my tool of choice, and provides the MAMP stack, similar to your LAMP stack.

    In Nexty, could you give some consideration to unix users as well as linux? I specifically am interested in your cli for nexty, settings page does not show me a link to the script, I am guessing it checks for “Linux” in the user-agent or something. Could it check for “Darwin” as well and pop me a link for cli tools?

    You are the man! Glad to help if you need concepts tested on OS X.

  2. HTTP_USER_AGENT Opera/9.23 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X; U; en)

    Darwin isn’t in the string. My bad!

    Your script works when it checks for “macintosh” as well as “linux”, forget the “darwin”.

  3. This is what you have to do…

    Open up the folder where nexty is kept.
    Open the file ‘templates/settings/index.php’ in your favorite editor
    Find line # 26
    if(strpos(strtolower($_SERVER[“HTTP_USER_AGENT”]), ‘linux’) !== false) { //If
    the user is on a Linux system, give him the chance to create a script
    Change that to

    //If user is on a Linux/Unix system, give him the option to create the script
    $user_agent = strtolower($_SERVER[“HTTP_USER_AGENT”]);
    if((strpos($user_agent, ‘linux’) !== false) or
    (strpos($user_agent, ‘macintosh’) !== false)) {

    I really hope you know a bit of PHP – that will make this very easy.

    Also, expect this feature from the next version
