An implementation of todo.txt for Windows using the .NET framework

This is an implemention of todo.txt using the .NET framework. As far as I am aware, it is fully complient with Gina's spec.

There is installer for the latest version available from the the main site.

Contributors please note

If you change any of the ToDoLib files, please make sure the current unit tests pass, and add new tests where appropriate.

Please send your pull requests to the 'dev' branch. If you forget it's not a major deal: it's just a bit more work for me as I have to manually merge.


  • minimalist, keyboard-driven UI
  • vim/gmail/twitter-like keyboard nav (single key, easily accessible)
  • re-usable library that other projects can use as a todo.txt API
  • API (but not UI) runs under Mono
  • full compliance with Gina's specs
