just TODO it UI

Recently, I wished to use a trivially-simple TODO-list application whilst working on a project. I had a look through what was available to me in the "GNOME Software" application and was surprised to find nothing suitable. In particular I just wanted to capture a list of actions that I could tick off; I didn't want anything more sophisticated than that (and indeed, more sophistication would mean a learning curve I couldn't afford at the time). I then remembered that I'd written one myself, twelve years ago. So I found the old code, dusted it off, made some small adjustments so it would work on modern systems and published it.

At the time that I wrote it, I found (at least) one other similar piece of software called "Tasks" which used Evolution's TODO-list as the back-end data store. I can no longer find any trace of this software, and the old web host (projects.o-hand.com) has disappeared.

My tool is called Just TODO It and it does very little. If that's what you want, great! You can reach the source via that prior link or jump straight to GitHub: https://github.com/jmtd/todo

The code for Tasks (also known as Pimlico tasks as it was part of the Pimlico suite) is available at https://git.gnome.org/browse/tasks/

I was about to point you to the tasks git repo as well. I can mention that it'd be cool if you pick it up as it's pretty much dead but there are lots of usable bits and pieces there, like the gazillion translations. :)
