Technitai TaskPaper Theme

If you use TaskPaper on OS X you may be interested in the theme I put together that supports a set of tags inspired by lean software development, Kanban in particular.

The tags are:

  • @priority(1)
  • @priority(2)
  • @priority(3)
  • @panic
  • @blocked

If I’m going to be talking about a theme then I better show what it looks like.

And the source!
