Todosaurus

A keyboard driven GUI app for the Todo.txt format.


⬇ Download (for Mac OS X)


Why?

I’ve struggled to find a todo app that worked for me. Many are too complicated. Many are too closed. Many aren’t keyboard driven enough. Many don’t match my design sensibilities.

So, I recently really went digging to find something that I would enjoy using. The closest I found was the Todo.txt format used in the command line. But for me the command line doesn’t provide the right context in my brain for handling my todo list. I tried a couple of the Todo.txt GUI apps listed on the website, but their key bindings weren’t intuitive to me.

So, I made my own.


Keyboard shortcuts

The app is completely keyboard driven—with key movements and shortcuts based on VIM.


Development

Technology

Built using web technologies and node-webkit. Also works perfectly in the browser, storing the todos in LocalStorage.
