Feature Proposal: Support simple checklists as inspired by Evernote


This is a very popular feature in Evernote. It would make it simple and intuitive for people to create and edit checklists.

Description and Documentation

In the Evernote WYSIWYG editor, you can select a list type that shows check boxes instead of bullets or numbers. When you click on a check box, it changes state to checked, and if you click again, back to unchecked.

This is quite handy and intuitive compared to - for example - creating a bullet list with DONE macros to mark when things are done.

It looks like their underlying markup is something like this:

[ ] Unchecked item

[x] Checked item

Cool idea. Whoever implements it should consider trying to do this work as part of a revamp of ChecklistPlugin and friend(s).

ChecklistPlugin comes closest to this feature. However it should use %META to store list states instead of another topic containing a TML table.

Yes indeed, and also needs an ajax interface so that each checkbox state change doesn't need a save cycle. If you have a very large checklist it can be rather daunting to manage. Excellent suggestion.

A javascript solution could be to collect the changes and process these as bulk after a couple of seconds.

http://angularjs.org/ is a nice framework that (of course) provides a demo for a todo list.
