Inspired by @cheeaun's life.
Use it here.
Timeline sytax is markdown-ish:
I want to be able to use a counter (that represents an arbitrary thing, not just dates) as the basis for events. For example,
5-20: Event 1 90-150: Event 2 45-68: Event 3
When I tried this in the live example, it treated it like a percentage and only went up to 100. It won't let me zoom out any more
Clicking on the Create Username button doesn't do anything. This makes cascade pretty much useless for me.

I'll take a look at the code
I love this project. Apologies if you've already explained elsewhere, but should any assumptions be made on how long the server app will be up and running? In other words, is this an experiment, or is it meant to last for the long term? Many thanks.
~~When changing Tabs the site can become unresponsive on Firefox/Ubuntu.~~
By unresponsive I mean, that I can no longer input text in the editor and I can also no longer click anything in the UI/renderer.
I don't know whether they are related but I'm also getting several errors in Console saying:
Uncaught ReferenceError: TouchEvent is not defined r NuxtJS
These errors are being thrown when I move the cursor.
I also get the following error:
Error: Promised response from onMessage listener went out of scope
Foremost: I love this project. I have been playing around with it for hours and I want to use it for many things both private and at work. I would love it, if I could specify expandable / nested dates. Usecases are: Changing position at the same company, creating some kind of high/low level structure. I am not expecting you to implement this, after all, you have already selflessly open sourced this great project. Just in case you are looking for additions worth implementing, I would vote for this one!
This is a great project! Thank you!
Would it be possible to support time? Ideally to the millisecond would be perfect. We’re looking for a timeline for incident management and need to support events with that precision.
Great project! Thanks for creating it.
Can you please add a
LICENSE to the repository? GitHub makes this really easy and Choosealicense.com helps you pick a license.
It would be nice if one was able to assign a specific colour to an entry
perhaps something like this
red 09/2019: Hawaii with Google blue 12/20/2019-12/22/2019: Train from Seattle to Chicago red 12/2019: Christmas at home, Dad to hospital
It would be great to have a VS Code extension, like PlantUML has, to edit and generate timelines in the IDE. It will make it quicker to iterate timelines.
When the sidebar is dragged to be small, the Dropdown menus are cut off on Firefox/Ubuntu so that you can no longer see the options present.
Sorry for the flood of Bug reports. This projects looks really interesting and I'm excited for it's future :)
Be able to specify colors and whatnot (background, text, date markers, etc.)
Not sure if this should be a plugin type thing, prespecified themes that you can choose from, or very customizable in the header on a per cascade basis
I'm going to try to use this issue to keep track of requests for local development and support in other tools. If one path becomes more apparent or gains more momentum than others I'll break it back out into its own issue.
Right now I'm seeing a few common requests:
In my current position (that is, having a full time job that is not markwhen (yet!)), I have to prioritize my time, and I think that priority should be the website, as it has the most reach and is the easiest for people to get started on.
However, I'm supportive of these other endeavors, though I won't be able to give them as much attention, at least right now.
I was thinking in the meantime the most helpful thing would be a CLI that takes a markwhen document and outputs HTML? That way people can do whatever they want with the html (host it themselves, etc) or potentially use it as the preview view in VS Code/Obsidian?
I want to enable everyone else but I also want to focus on the website for the time being.
Hi. The tool is really good. I just have this feature req, which I believe many people would find useful.
In many cases events or project tasks need to have set their duration in a number of “workdays” ignoring weekends and maybe Public holidays. You could define your own public holidays in some array.
The idea is to set task durations in for example 7 workdays which will translate into a whole week plus 2 days long … so 9 natural days long.
Then if something moves in the project everything can be updated accordingly… discounting weekends.
Thank you for the great tool! I love it! I noticed that the group and section features don't support nesting. It would be great to have that functionality so that more structure could be provided entries!
This tool is great for timelines that are days/months/years long, but unless I'm missing something it falls short when we move to minutes/seconds/milliseconds. I'm trying to diagram out a phone hunt group and the entire thing takes place in a span of 45 seconds, with actions typically lasting anywhere from 5 to 15 seconds and even at the strongest zoom level, it's still zoomed out too far to be useful.
Loving Markwhen! Any chance of it becoming a progressive web app? Would be lovely to be able to run it on an iPad without having to invoke a browser tab...
I've tried and so far failed to be able to express my plan in Markwhen. The challenge in this case is it's not a forward-waterfall plan, but a working-back-from-an-immovable-deadline plan.
Ideally I want to write something like:
title: Annual Meetings 2023 (Markwhen plan) description: A summary of what's needed and when dateFormat: d/M/y #announcements: red before !ACM 2 month: revise voting eligibility list before !ACM 6 weeks: publish notice of ACM #announcements before !ACM 2 weeks: publish revised voters list 10/4/2023: ANNUAL CHURCH MEETING !ACM after 1 week: publish results of elections #announcements
The 'before' syntax isn't available, so I tried negative relative dates:
title: Annual Meetings 2023 (Markwhen plan) description: A summary of what's needed and when dateFormat: d/M/y #announcements: red --- after !ACM -2 month: revise voting eligibility list after !ACM -6 weeks: publish notice of ACM #announcements after !ACM -2 weeks: publish revised voters list 10/4/2023: ANNUAL CHURCH MEETING !ACM after 1 week: publish results of elections #announcements
but this doesn't work.
Is there an existing way to do this? If not, please add support for this kind of use case.
