Short Information about OpenTodoList

Stay Organized

Organize todo lists, notes and images in libraries. Create e.g. a library for personal use and one for work. In addition, you can tag items inside a library, which allow you to easily break down larger collections into smaller parts.

Sync Your Data With NextCloud, ownCloud and More

OpenTodoList allows you to synchronize your libraries with NextCloud, ownCloud and other WebDAV enabled web storage servers. In addition, as libraries are basically just a set of folders and files, you can use any third party synchronization tool of your choice.

Your Data is Yours

We do not restrict the cloud platforms your can use to synchronize data. We have support for some platforms like NextCloud or ownCloud, which you can easily host yourself on your own or trusted hardware. In addition, you can opt to create libraries just locally e.g. on your laptop - there’s no better way to prevent confidential information to leak.

For Desktops and Mobiles

OpenTodoList is designed to run on both Desktop Operating Systems like Linux, macOS and Windows as well as mobile ones like Android.

February went by fast. And during the month, we have not only one but two intermediate bugfix releases of OpenTodoList. Consequentially, there was not so much time to work on new features. But hey, we managed to at least get one implemented - and this one is in fact a very nice addition to the app 📃

Changelog

  • rpdev/opentodolist#197: Did you ever ask yourself: When in OpenTodoList I can add arbitrary text to images and todo lists, why the heck should I use Notes? Well, you are right: Until now, there was little reason to do so (in fact, the only reason might be that notes are rendered like sticky notes in the library page, which might be handy for some of you). But otherwise, you were usually better of with using a todo list instead. This, however, is over with this version. It is now possible to add additional pages of text to a note (thus, making notes actually rather a note book). So if you happen to collect a lot of text in your libraries, you have (besides of using tags) now a new cool feature to structure it!
Notes can now have arbitrary many pages of text. This makes them a kind of notebook instead (and opens a completely new way of organizing large amounts of text in the app).

We relased v3.19 of OpenTodoList only a few days ago. Unfortunately, a nasty little bug found its way in 🐛

So here comes v3.19.1, which fixes the issue and also already comes with other gimmicks 😉

Changelog

  • rpdev/opentodolist#296: The previous release (v3.19) brought quite some enhancements especially regarding handling of synced libraries. These changes caused the Windows version of the app to not start anymore 😰 This version fixes this issue, so, dear Windows users: Welcome back on board!
  • rpdev/opentodolist#298: Depending on the time zone you live in, due dates in the apps might potentially be created with one day off. This issues is fixed as well in this release.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#294: When a library is synchronized, we now show an indication in the tool bar. Previously, an overlay footer was used for this purpose, which however prevented users from interacting with the content of the current page.

We are already well into February, so a new version of OpenTodoList is actually overdue 😲

On the other side, this version of the app is again packed with some cool new features, so you won’t be sorry for the wait.

Changelog

  • rpdev/opentodolist#288: In our tests we make sure OpenTodoList works against ownCloud and NextCloud. However, we currently don’t have any tests for other providers. For this reason, until now, chances were high that the app did not work with your WebDAV server of choice - in fact, there was a nasty bug in the code which prevented proper sync with a lot of providers. Fortunately, this is now fixed in this release, so if you server talks proper WebDAV, you should be able to use it to sync your libraries.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#287: We improved the About page of the app a bit. It should be much cleaner now and also has a useful direkt link to report issues in our bug tracker 😉
  • rpdev/opentodolist#286: Did you know that you can help improve the app by translating it to other languages? No? We have an account on POEditor.com where everyone can contribute by translating strings into their own language, making the app more accessible for everyone. To make it easier to find the page, we added a direct link to it to the side bar.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#283: In the previous release we added a feature which allows you to check or uncheck a todo or task by swiping it from left to right. Unfortunately, the item would not swipe back in case of tasks. This is fixed now.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#281: You can now quickly change the title of todos or tasks by double clicking (or double tapping) them.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#285: And here comes the big one! We introduced Accounts in the app 🎉 Well, this might sound strange, but it simply means: If you have more than one library which is stored on the same server (e.g. if you have a library for private stuff and one you use for your work), the credentials for them are now stored in one logical account inside the app. This simplifies both adding an existing library to your device as well as creating entirely new libraries, because you no longer have to enter the server address, user name and password all over again.
Accounts make it easier to manage several libraries that are stored on the same server.

We hope you had a pleasant start into the new year! 🎉🥳🎆

We definitely had - and on top even found some time to prepare the next release of OpenTodoList! And the list of changes that made it into this release is really not short. So, here we go:

Changelog

  • rpdev/opentodolist#280: Fixed an issue which caused the app to crash when terminating it on Android and iOS.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#203: Fixed opening images from the Gallery on Android devices.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#277: Properly install a *.desktop file, which is required for some systems like Flatpak to extract meta information.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#256: The user experience using the Snap version of the app has been improved. Concrete, the snap contains all of the dependencies, so it is no longer required to run some cryptic “connect” commands manually after the installation.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#261: Items in the library page can now be sorted (e.g. by name or due date).
  • rpdev/opentodolist#271: When running on mobile devices or when the app window is rather small, dynamically show tool bar icons and do not cut them off. Additionally, show a menu which contains all actions which are not currently shown as toolbar icons.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#272: The app is now properly packaged and available via the iOS app store.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#262: Store the created at and updated at timestamps. These properties can be used when sorting items e.g. in the library page or inside a todo list.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#259: Fix the app translations. They now work again. Additionally, users can select the language to show the app in using the settings.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#264: In todo and tasks lists, one can now use a swipe from left to right to mark the todo or task as done (or undone).
  • rpdev/opentodolist#274: Improved the todo drawer. There were several usability issues with the previous implementation, such that it did not resize properly and it was not possible to use swipe gestures in it.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#247: Added a button to set the due date in the swipe menu in todo lists to quickly add a date.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#282: Generate proper version numbers for iOS release.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#279: Ensure the app generates proper file names when adding images. This is especially important on iOS when adding images from the gallery.
