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.

Another month, another release of OpenTodoList. This release comes with two new tweaks to the user interface, that you’ll hopefully will find useful.

Changelog

  • rpdev/opentodolist#235: Todo lists can now be sorted by either their title or their due date. If you have larger lists, that might be useful to keep a better overview of your lists. Of course, you can still also manually sort your todos (which is the default setting).
  • rpdev/opentodolist#246: When creating a new todo, you can select a due date, which is immediately set on the newly created todo. This is useful if often set due dates on todos, because you don’t need do open the todo after creating it, which saves you some clicks.

Downloads

  • Please find the download links for major platforms on GitHub.
  • For Android, the release is available via Google Play.
  • If you use snap, you can install the app from the snapcraft.io.
  • If you use flatpak, you can install the app from Flathub.

We are well into August, so: It’s time for another release of OpenTodoList! And this release is going to be exciting, as once more, it brings a lot of changes to the user interface.

Changelog

  • rpdev/opentodolist#234: The todo list, note and image pages have been completely reworked. In addition, viewing a todo from inside a todo page now opens another drawer instead of a new page. Besides, there are several bigger and smaller changes to the UI, which should make it much more pleasant to use!
  • rpdev/opentodolist#248: There were additional changes to ensure that Color Emoji are working with the Flatpak version of the app.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#244: Rather a detail, but: The app now targets Android API level 28.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#240: Another set of smaller changes to the user interface: We added some whitespace here and there to make things easier to read.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#243: And finally: Translating the app has become much simpler now. We now support POEditor.com, an online service for translating strings of an application. Want to join and help translate the app to other languages? Head over to the project page on POEditor.com and join!
The main feature of this release is the all new todo list page.

We reached the end of the month, which also means: A new release of OpenTodoList is ready! 👏

This release includes lots of smaller bug fixes, but also some gimmicks here and there.

Changelog

  • rpdev/opentodolist#223: The has been packages as a snap. This makes it super easy to install on Linux distributions including snap.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#224: When running the app packages via Flatpak, passwords are now written to the secrets store (like Gnome keyring or the KDE Wallet). Before, they have been written to a less secure fallback location.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#230: A bug has been fixed, which caused the app to crash when using the search. This bug did not occur all the time. In particular, it seemed to occur most often when the app was run as an AppImage.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#237: The Schedule view has been extended and now includes a Tomorrow section, showing all the items which are due on the next day.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#238: Background images have been removed from most views. They did not contribute to the usability of the app and even worse made the app unnecessarily hard to use for users who are sight impaired. #232: A bug has been fixed which caused the app to not allow the user to add images to a library when being run as an AppImage.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#233: When being packages as Flatpak, the app now is able to display color emoji out of the box.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#236: A bug has been fixed which caused items in the schedule view to appear in the wrong section under some circumstances.
Besides some fixes, the schedule view now also has a new category for items due tomorrow.

After a pretty long pause, we finally release a new version of OpenTodoList. It is a mixed release, bringing both new features as well as some tweaks in the background.

Changelog

  • There is now syntax highlighting in note editors! Any text in OpenTodoList can be styled using Markdown. With syntax highlighting, it now gets much easier to edit your notes. rpdev/opentodolist#228
  • The used Qt version has been updated to Qt 5.12.3. For most users, this should not matter, however, it allows us to use new features in future versions of the app. In addition, it allows us to release a 64bit ARM version of the app. rpdev/opentodolist#213
  • We improved the handling of the cache. The cache has been introduced some versions ago and used to speed up the app, as well as reducing the memory required at runtime. Before, there was a known issue which - in the past - hit us on Windows: When you first started the Windows 32bit version of the app, created some content and then (e.g. due to an update) later run the Windows 64bit version on the same device, the app would not be able to re-open the cache. This is by design, however, it was a real use case (and especially is with this release, which for the first time ever includes a 64bit ARM version on Android, which suffers from the same issue). rpdev/opentodolist#214
Syntax highlighting makes editing Markdown formatted notes much easier

After the previous releases of the app rather have been bug fix and maintenance ones, this ones finally brings some cool new features.

Changelog

  • You can now re-order items inside a library via drag&drop. This allows you to put the items you are working most frequently with to the top of the page easily! rpdev/opentodolist#218
  • A progress value can now be set on todos. Until now, there was a progress indication derived from the number of open and closed tasks within a todo. Now, you can set a progress value manually, which overrides this computed one. rpdev/opentodolist#204
Reordering of top level items and progress values on todos

Downloads

Please find the download links for major platforms on GitHub. For Android, the release is available via Google Play.

Known Issues

  • There is a known issue with the cache DB used by the app (rpdev/opentodolist#214). When you installed e.g. a 32bit version and then change to a 64bit version, the cache cannot be opened and the app won’t work properly. To fix this, remove the previous cache directory manually before starting the app.
