Minding OmniFocus

One of the features I really appreciated about Complice was its Beeminder integration. Having the bees buzzing after me is the most effective way I've found so far to get things done consistently. For example, I've had a goal set up to force me to practice Esperanto on Duolingo since 2015 - and I'm still going!

Since I've moved off Complice and back to OmniFocus, I've been missing that helping hand. Fortunately OmniFocus has support for AppleScript extensions, and I've been able to adapt some examples I found online to export data up to Beeminder. It sends the number of tasks in a particular perspective to Beeminder as a data point, and creates an email report to send to an accountability partner.

You can find the script (with personal details removed) here:
