Theme

Features

Do the basic CRUD operations right for your Notion Database which you're using to maintain your To-Dos with Status and Priority.

Requirements

  • Notion A/C 😎 It will be awesome with this Notion Template 😋
  • Visual Studio Code 💻
  • Awesome Todo Maintainer Extension 🚀

Inspiration

We often wanted to explore Notion APIs as well as since me and my teammates use Notion daily, maintaining a to-do table while switching windows was sometimes "ughh😒" so we came up with the idea of making an extension just to stay on VSCode undistracted.

What it does

Ctrl+Shift+P -> Quick Pick

Commands mentioned:

  • TODO: Add/Update Notion Database
  • TODO: Check Current Notion Database
  • TODO: Read TO-DOs
  • TODO: Create TO-DOs
  • TODO: Update TO-DOs
  • TODO: Delete TO-DOs

As mentioned, it does the CRUD commands as well as it lets you add priority and status making your boring todo not so boring.

How we built it

  • Falguni did a hell lot of JS heavily Frontend and UI/UX logic with which you gonna interact. 👻
  • Aniruddha did a hell of a lot of JS heavily (yes, again) Backend with which this extension gonna interact. 🤯 Used Notion SDK to built an API with Express.js to support all the CRUD Operations for Notion Pages where the Integration is added.

Challenges we ran into

Getting our PC completely frozen because of infinite loops of calling APIs to build a fully-fledged backend and frontend is not an easy task. We suffered from getting ECONNECTED ERROR to the minute logic building. But all hail to StackOverflow, YouTube and VSCode/NotionAPI docs.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are now debugging gangsta.

What we learned

Learnt a new stack and adapted it fully quickly.

What's next for Awesome Todo Maintainer

We are going to grow it more and will add more features.
