Zend Framework and Remember The Milk

I’ve posted a few times on Twitter related to my latest project and a few people have already asked me about it, so I figured it was worth a blog post.

My first project for the Zend Framework was Zend_Service_Simpy, a service module providing a lightweight wrapper around the API for the Simpy social bookmarking service.

My latest project is another service module for the Zend Framework. This time, though, it’s for the Remember The Milk API. RTM is basically a TODO list on serious steroids. It’s the Swiss Army Knife of task management. It allows you to manage multiple lists of tasks. You can add them easily from a variety of mediums, tag them, prioritize them, set deadlines for them, have them repeat, get reminders for them, tie them to physical real world locations, and share them. RTM offers great support for integration with Google applications including Google Calendar, iGoogle, and Gmail (plus offline access powered by Google Gears). They’re also very big into supporting mobile devices, including those running on Windows Mobile as well as the iPhone.

If you like, you can check out my original proposal for this module. I can already say that the API will end up changing a little, though, but it’s good enough to give you a general idea of what the capabilities of the finished service module will be. I only actively started implementation recently and things are progressing at a fairly rapid pace. I still have unit tests and documentation to handle, but hopefully there’s a shot at seeing it moved to core within the next two releases of the framework.

    Nice, I love RTM. I use it daily. :) It’s one of those really, really useful Web2 things.

    Hi, how is the coding on this going? About a year since your post and I haven’t seen anything in the Zend services API section yet. Is there any chance of an alpha release of some code to play with?
