3 Markedly Different Dynamics to Color Code your WorkFlowy Tasks

Last year August I came out with a post on “140+ Background Colors for Your WorkFlowy Lists“. Since then I’ve refined the style quite a bit… AND added to the repertoire by putting together 2 additional styles. Both are solutions which are a lot more minimalist – and you can still cherry pick from over 140 colors.

Compare each of the 3 dynamics:

… And here’s a video to show you the moving parts:

 

The above screencast is part of Module 3 – “A Facelift For Your Brain” – at the WorkFlowy Academy, which offers a host of ready-to-install templates that tweak every element imaginable in WorkFlowy – with both aesthetic and practical dynamics.

Here are a few more screencasts from Module 3 which I’ve made public.  And also… you’re welcome to subscribe to the WorkFlowy Academy YouTube channel.

Now to color your world… responsibly 🙂

The #colors show up on mobile now.

I’m excited to get this started, but I’m getting the same “Can’t parse!” error on Chrome Version 66.0.3359.181 (Official Build) (64-bit) that some folks were commenting on, on the previous post you referenced. Any thoughts?

Disregard – I was trying to import a file, not a zip. Unfortunately I am unable to delete the comment above.

I’m running into an issue – due to the behavior of the script and how it blanks out the color tag itself by turning it into a circle, when I move the cursor to the end of the line and press ENTER to create a new line, it just moves the color tag to the new line. Any way around this?

Try hitting your Down arrow before hitting Enter… Incidentally, this is a cure-all for starting a new list below your current list – no matter where your cursor is in the current list 🙂

Hey, Frank! I have a question unrelated to this post but comments are closed on that one. Did the “mother lode Unicode list” go away? It used to be here: http://snip.ly/5h80d

This looks great in my Chome desktop browser, but how to you see color-coded tags on the mobile app?
Thanks
David

So was using Workflowy as a crocery shopping list at the store and as I was deleting an item by swiping to the right, a solid green line appeared that I can’t seem to delte?

Hi Frank, everything works, thanks… But I can’t figure out how to remove the color tags and get back to a bullet with normal lay-out.

Also, I would like to have invisible bullets so that I can get (white) line spacing between different nodes. – That’s the one thing that really bothers me in Workflowy – you can not set groups of content apart from each other.

Is there a way you can do that with all your css magic?

Unfortunately I don’t have any IT skills, so I can not figure it out by myself. 🙁
