Dani and I are both web developers and we both use Netlify to deploy our projects. We also both use Todoist to manage our tasks.
We have discovered that it is very useful to have a continuous integration workflow with Netlify and a task management system with Todoist, so we combined them both to create this tutorial.
When working on a project, Dani and I need two things:
A local development environment to work on the project. A remote server to host the project.
Netlify is an awesome platform that is able to run your project on a variety of environments (like GitHub, Bitbucket or GitLab. and host it for free.
Todoist is a task management system that we have used for many years. It is an awesome service that helps Dani and I manage tasks, reminders, and subtasks in a clean interface.
Now let’s talk about how we have integrated the two services.
First of all, you need to sign up for an account on Netlify. Then we will create an account on Todoist that will be used to connect it to Netlify. We will start by creating a new team on Todoist. This team will be used to sync tasks between Todoist and Netlify.
Once you have created your team, log into your Netlify account and go to Settings > Build & deploy > Services. Click Add Service and then select Todoist from the dropdown menu. You will see a form like this:
Once you have filled out this form, click Save changes. Now you have added Todoist as a service in Netlify. Now you can define what files should be deployed when pushing to your project’s repository on GitHub (or Bitbucket or GitLab. To do that go to Settings > Build & deploy > Deployment settings and add the fplowing:
You can do this for each of the environments listed above. If you want to set up these build steps for another provider, just fplow the instructions in this screenshot. Next, we need to configure Todoist so that it knows about your new team and its connection to Netlify. Go back to Todoist and sign in using your account credentials. Then click on the ‘More’ icon at the top right corner of the screen, select ‘Teams’ and click ‘Add Team’. Then fill out the form like this. Now, there are three ways of integrating Netlify with Todoist. The first one is adding a custom command in Netlify that runs a command in your local terminal when pushing to your GitHub repository (or Bitbucket or GitLab. We used this method in our previous article about Continuous Integration with Netlify. If you want to know more about setting up this command check out our article here. The second option is using Webhooks in Todoist. You can read more about them here. Finally, you can just add your Todoist username and password directly in your project file (in Netlify. with the fplowing commands. Once you have added the basic information about your team in Todoist, you will have access to all of its features on Netlify. That’s it! Now everything works as expected, but there is one last thing that we can do to make things better. if you push a change to your project’s repository on GitHub or Bitbucket or GitLab (and other providers), Netlify will update your site automatically in a few minutes without any action from your side. Also, if you add a new task in Todoist, that task will appear on your site in a matter of seconds! Isn’t it nice? 🙂 — Conclusion You don’t really need a lot of time to set up a continuous integration workflow with Netlify and Todoist, but it is very important to make sure that everything works correctly before checking everything in (as we did here. Now, every time you push something to your GitHub project’s repository, Netlify will build your site and deploy it on its servers. Also, if you add a new task in Todoist, that task will appear on your site in less than 10 seconds! Another cop thing is that if you remove a task from Todoist, it will disappear from your site automatically too! Thanks for reading this article!
