Simple task management for tech folks.

Build Status

Ultralist is a task management system for technical people. It is command-line component that is very fast and stays out of the way.

Ultralist is based off of the Getting Things Done system. It has a concept of due dates, projects, and contexts.


Combined with, Ultralist provides a superior task management experience to Wunderlist, Todoist, etc. The command-line will app always be first and foremost.

See the ultralist docs for the all documentation.

Is it good?

Yes. Yes it is.


  • Mac OS: Run brew install ultralist.
  • Other systems: Get the correct ultralist binary from the releases page.
  • If you have Golang installed: Run go get

Then, follow the quick start in the docs to quickly get up and running.

How does Ultralist relate to

  • ultralist is this tool.
  • is an enhancement service to the ultralist tool. It allows for synchronization between computers, a great web view of your todolists, and (eventual) phone apps. is currently in a free public beta.

How is this different from todo.txt?

todo.txt is great. But it didn't work well for my needs.

Here's how ultralist compares specifically to todo.txt:

  1. Due dates. they are a core concept of ultralist but not todo.txt.
  2. Synchronizing. Syncing is built into the CLI using the service.
  3. Active development. the ultralist CLI is under active development, whereas todo.txt's CLI is not.
