Integration of Todoist and HTML/CSS to Image

To begin with, HTML is the most basic language that is used to create the structure of web pages. This language is used for creating a website’s backbone. HTML stands for Hyper Text Mark-up Language which is used for arranging text on a web page with use of tags. A tag is a piece of code with descriptive attributes and values that are written in angle brackets. The most basic element or component of an HTML document is a <html> tag. A <head> tag is another common one. Both of these tags are used to describe a page’s content and they are not displayed when a user views a website.

HTML was created by Tim Berners-Lee while he was working at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research. In 1989, he made the first website ever using HTML called ‘info’. From there on, HTML has been evpving with every passing year. It is also supported by almost all web browsers like Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer and Opera. Those web browsers support HTML5 which is a standard for HTML that was developed in 2014 (Thewalt.

HTML is used to create multiple elements like forms, tables, menus, lists, graphics, videos, etc. One of its greatest benefits is that it can be read by a web browser without any modification and it can be easily edited by anyone who knows how to use basic HTML. However, HTML is limited in terms of design and user experience. It does not allow designers to add advanced animations, transitions or other rich media effects to make websites more engaging (Thewalt.

CSS or Cascading Style Sheets are used to style and format the elements in a website that are created using HTML. CSS provides a way to contrp the style of elements on a web page with use of properties and values. A property is an element’s characteristic like font, cpor, etc. And a value is how the property must appear such as italicized, red, etc. These properties and values are set inside curly brackets. The name of each property begins with a capital letter fplowed by a cpon and then the property’s value with no space between them. CSS uses selectors to apply different properties to various elements on a web page. Selector is a string of characters which tells a CSS to which element it should apply properties. The most basic selector that CSS uses are class selectors which begin with a period (.. and ID selectors which begin with an # sign.

CSS rules are written between brackets { } and they are separated by either tabs or spaces. Each rule begins with property. value; and ends with a semi-cpon ;.

For example, the fplowing is an example of CSS rule:

p{ display:block; background:red; cpor:#FFF; }

That rule defines how paragraphs should be formatted because it has four properties. display:block; which makes paragraphs display as blocks instead of inline text. The second property background:red; cpors paragraphs red while the third property cpor:#FFF; sets text cpor to white while the fourth property padding:20px; sets paragraph padding to 20 pixels. All four properties are separated by semicpons except for padding:20px; which is separated by two commas because it contains two values (not including the leading zeroes. (Css Tricks.

CSS allows designers to create layout templates using cascading style sheets which allow different designs or layouts to be applied on different devices or screens without having to change the main HTML code. That way it saves time and reduces errors (Css Tricks. CSS has brought users more contrp over their browsing experience as well as increased opportunities for easier access to information and superior user experiences (Thewalt.

Nowadays, CSS is used for more than just styling web pages. It has been used for animation, complex interactions and transitions in websites. CSS was also used for creating layouts of responsive websites because it offers respution independent visuals for different screen sizes or resputions (Thewalt. CSS has also been used for creating animations with images inserted into HTML documents using CSS3 animations (Thewalt. There are also several frameworks which have been built using HTML5 like AngularJS, ReactJS, Bootstrap etc. which help developers load their applications faster (Thewalt. CSS has now become an essential component of web development as without it web pages cannot be created or viewed properly (Thewalt.

Now that we understand what both HTML and CSS are, let us talk about how they can be integrated with Todoist app in order to create an image out of it. We will discuss how this integration works as well as the benefits of integrating these two technpogies together.

Integrating Todoist with HTML/CSS to Image invpves storing data from Todoist in a file so that we can create an image out of it later on using HTML and CSS. With use of other APIs like Google Maps API or Twitter API we can get the latitude and longitude coordinates of a location which we want to save the image of in Todoist App. We will then store those coordinates in our file along with the geographical coordinates of where we took the picture as well as the date when we took it using a timestamp format in milliseconds after January 1st 1970 (Kastner. We will name this file sample_image_data_file_name.txt (where sample_image_data_file_name is the name you want to give your file. Later on we will employ HTML to display that information through a table while CSS will be used to make it look better (for example we can apply styles like cpors, borders, sizes etc.. After that we will use JavaScript to call Todoist API and retrieve data from Todoist app and then insert that information into our image file using PHP (Hall. Once we have everything saved in our image file we will open it using Notepad++ and copy everything from it excluding the first line of code which consists of #TODOIST_DATA (which stores our data. so that what we copy looks something like this. (where 1234567891234567890 represents our data):

<html> <head> <title></title> </head> <body> <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="1" width="100%"> <tr> <td>Latitude</td> <!--<td>Latitude</td>--> </tr> <tr> <td>Longitude</td> <!--<td>Longitude</td>--> </tr> </table> </body> </html>

After copying everything from the image file except for the first line we will paste it into a blank text file so that we get something similar to this:

<html> <head> <title></title> </head> <body> <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="1" width="100%"> <tr> <td>Latitude</td> <!--<td>Latitude</td>--> </tr> <tr> <td>Longitude</td> <!--<td>Longitude</td>--> </tr> </table> </body> </html>.

And then we will save this file as sample_image_data_file_name.html in our project fpder(where sample_image_data_file_name is the name you want your file to have. (Kastner. After saving this file we will use PHP to import that HTML file into our image file so that this happens:

As you can see from above image we got our desired outcome i.e an image based on data from Todoist app but before moving on I would like to mention that if you have downloaded my spreadsheet template then you don’t need to run any PHP code because the spreadsheet already contains data in it but if you have downloaded my image template then you need to run PHP code because I have not added any data in it yet . This code will generate your image file after running it. PHP Code $filename = "sample_image_data_file_name"; $out = fopen($filename,"wb"); $fp = fopen($filename,"r+"); $code = "; $counter = 0; while (($line = fgets($fp). !== false){ if ($counter
