Foreground app

Foreground is Time tool that is open source under the Apache-2.0 license.

Foreground is an easy to use task manager app. Designed to be beautiful,
simple and unintrusive, Foreground helps you know what needs done without
getting in your way. Foreground also supports syncing with href="">Taskwarrior servers.


To set up sync, add your taskwarrior server credentials (provided by your
taskd server or a service like or FreeCinc) to the settings menu, and
enable sync using the toggle. A test will be run to check if the settings are
valid, and the enable will stick if the config works. You can also configure
automatic syncing in this menu, or click the sync button on the main page to
start a sync.

Implementation Details

Unlike existing Taskwarrior apps for Android, Foreground does not run the
taskwarrior binary inside, but rather implements a taskwarrior sync client.
This allows for greater device compatibility and simplifies UI development but
it can cause issues when syncing if not done correctly.

Current Limitations

Foreground currently supports most features of Taskwarrior. Notable
exceptions involve handling of recurring events and display/editing of User
Defined Attributes. Recurring event instances created by other clients will be
shown by Foreground, but Foreground does not create recurring event instances
of its own at this time. User Defined attributes are preserved internally but
are not yet exposed for viewing or editing. These limitations will be resolved
in future releases.
