Moyase Roadmap

Planned features

Better localization support

The biggest thing preventing Moyase’s translation into other languages is the way that pluralization works in various languages. While my code does already take this into consideration, the goal creation process becomes unrealistically verbose for languages like Russian that have more complicated plurality rules.

Eliminating the free-text field and replacing it with a drop-down list that can be populated with user-defined (and preconfigured) unit types would go a long way to solving this issue.

Linked goals

It might be nice to allow certain goals to apply to others. For example, each unit logged for “pages this month” could also apply to “pages this year”, or finishing a goal for a single book could log one unit to a “books this year” goal. This might not be worth the effort (and configuration might be needlessly fiddly) but it’s something I’ve thought about.

Optimization

The app is pretty snappy in most cases, but the data should probably be normalized. Dependent data is evaluated a bit too greedily in some cases, which can lead to UI lag. Saving data to app storage has yet to be a problem but it’s possible that a big enough backlog will lead to slowdown. It may be worth using SQLite directly instead of Ionic Storage.

Time tracking

I frequently find myself wishing I could track time rather than the types of units that Moyase was built for. While it’s possible to make a unit called “minutes” and check in as normal, it’s clunky and unintuitive. Implementing a special “time” unit type (perhaps even with an optional stopwatch in the checkin pane) would make time-based goals much more convenient.

Calendar improvements

The activity calendar struggles with long-spanning goals, and the date-picker could be more intuitive. Ideally I’d like to use a Material Design calendar, but calendars are notoriously tricky to program so I haven’t been able to prioritize this.
