Welcome

I started coding a web version of CRON-o-Meter over a year ago. At first it was just to experiment with the GWT framework. I let development sit dormant for months at a time. Occasionally, I’d find a lazy sunday to pick it up a work on it for a bit, but inevitably I would get busy with work and life again. Recently, I’ve found myself with a lot more free time, and a lot fewer distractions. Progress has been swift.

I’ve finally got a development build hosted here on a cheap shared hosting service. Day by day, it should start to come together into a very nice, usable website. Right now, things are focussed more on the functionality than the aesthetics. Apologies for the lack of coherent design — that will come later.

I’ll be blogging here about the ongoing development progress.

  • Aaron,nI use the Cron-o-meter software on my computer. I was glad to see something where I could use it with my phone as I always ended up dragging my laptop into and out of the kitchen. I've been playing with the online version today and I noticed I imported my settings from the software into the website and set up a profile. I have a problem though. I have two google accounts. With my phone, if I hit the log in with Google, it automatically chooses the wrong account. It's not even the account I am logged into the Google apps on the Droid with. How can I change this? Also, I would like to make a suggestion. Since I space my 6 meals out during the day, it would be nice if the software would allow my to input and show the time each item was eaten. Good job and thank you for all your hard work!

    • Hi there. That's strange that it automatically linked to the wrong google account. I've made a few bug fixes to the OpenID handling -- could you make sure you're logged into the right account on the droid browser, and then see if it works properly now? You could also try logging out of google, then trying to log in through cronometer.com -- it will redirect to google and then ask you to log into the desired account.nnThanks,nAaron

  • Hey!nnMy boyfriend and I use Cron-O-Meter all the time and we are THRILLED to see it online as it makes it much easier to plug in nutritional data throughout the day. nnWe are having some issues getting the import of data to work.

    • Can you zip up your files at "C:UsersLisaApplication Datacronometer" and email them to me? That way I can debug the issue and fix things. n

  • This is fantastic! My wife and I have been discussing doing something like that. Are you accepting code contributors?
