I uploaded 1.7.2-2 because previous version didn't save (without any error message...) to file on anymore.

Mange tasklists in todo.txt format.

Todo.txt uses simple text files for managing tasklists: http://todotxt.com/

Done and solved: A filter from a previous context (that did not exist anymore in the current file todo.txt) was set. So all entries were hidden. Reset all filters once. Works fine now.
BTW, as stated above by user 'breiti_oi' on March 16, 2018, I installed ZuTun twice.
When using the App for the first tme on XA2, I recommend to enter 1-3 tasks only. Then close+restart ZuTun.
Thank you very much, fooxl, for your quick and patient support!

spheniscus's picture

Maybe it helps: file receives new tasks and lists them naturally, in alphabetical order.
But screen remains blank in zutun.
Looks like writing to todo.txt does work, while reading (or display) does not.

fooxl's picture

But how could it show the projects and contexts then?

If you want you can send a screenshot an example of todo.txt-content to michfu@gmx.at

spheniscus's picture

Hey, great App. Does not save on on XA2. ~/home/nemo/Documents is writable. todo.txt does exist and is rwx by nemo + group nemo as well.
Weird: No tasks shown when adding tasks, but project/context counter rises. Opening the .txt file in file browser or in notes SHOWS content. Any ideas?
EDIT: Reinstalled the app --> same behavior.

fooxl's picture

Did you activate a filter?

fooxl's picture

Ok, this sounds really weird.

I will upload a major update in the next days. Hopefully your problem will be gone then (with some new ones added ;) ).


EDIT: I also had problems with file handling after the last SFOS updates. Reinstalling the app solved these issues.

Hi fooxl,

I must be dumb, but I can find how to add a new project.  

When I can on the project filter view, the only think I can't see in the pulldown menu is the possibilité to clear project filters. There is no bottom menu.

When I create a task, I can click en the + button, to add a project to the new task, but nothing to create I new project.


Do I miss something?



fooxl's picture

Just enter a new task containing the name of the new project:

"+newproject first thing to do"

The idea of todo.txt is to have your tasks saved in a strictly formated text file. Maybe take a quick look at http://todotxt.org/ to get an idea the concept.


vbelloir's picture

ok, it just works. Thanks!

Personally - Now that Sailsync Owncloud has arrived I'm using that one to sync most things (TodoTxt, Notes, Keepass db and Pictures) to the NextCloud.

Earlier I used ShellEx and rsync to sync to my server and from there via an NFS-share to my other units.

breiti_oi's picture

The list doesn't get saved on Xperia/, so all todo's are gone when closing the the app. Should it be this way or is it a bug?

fooxl's picture

No, this is not the expected behaviour. :)

I guess the problem is, that the file loaction is not writeable. My app doesn't display error messages on file handling. Sorry for this.

The default location is ~/Documents/todo.txt

Could you check if the directory exists and is writeable?

breiti_oi's picture

The folder Documents exist and is writeable for user nemo. I just created the todo.txt, now it works.

fooxl's picture

Ok, thanks for the report.

I will improve the code handling the file.

carmenfdezb's picture

Thank you fo the update!! Translations files are missing in this version, could you add them in the next version?

fooxl's picture

Thanks for the hint and of course also for the translation itself!

Strange they are missing, will fix it ASAP.

carmenfdezb's picture

Nice!! Thank you!

borghal's picture

Great app! It seems to be the only Sailfish todo app able to sync, which is important to me. There's one thing I'm missing, though, and that would be due dates and reminders. Is there a chance of you adding this? There's already an issue for this on github, I noticed. I'd be able to ditch Android OpenTasks and go native Sailfish if this was implemented ☺

gaunab's picture

How do you manage syncing of your todo.txt?

fooxl's picture

Not OP.

I'm using syncthing, but I guess you can use any filesyncing software (e.g. dropbox).

fooxl's picture

due-Dates and reminders are there now.

I ddn't test it a lot, so feedback would be welcome

fooxl's picture

Thanks for your comment. :)

I want to implement this, but I didn't have much time lately.

kuba77's picture

Great app! But I have 2 suggestions:

1) Wouldn't be more Sailfish way on Filter pages instead of button "Clear Project/Context Filter" use Pulldown menu for it?

2) It would be nice to have filter to hide one or more projects/contexts. For example, you have projects with name a, b, c, d, e and you want to hide "c" project so you have on tasklist tasks with projects a, b, d, e and without project tag. I hope it is understable :-)

fooxl's picture

Thank you very much for your feedback.

1) Wouldn't be more Sailfish way on Filter pages instead of button "Clear Project/Context Filter" use Pulldown menu for it?
I guess you are right. Will try do inlcude this in the next release.

2) It would be nice to have filter to hide one or more projects/contexts. For example, you have projects with name a, b, c, d, e and you want to hide "c" project so you have on tasklist tasks with projects a, b, d, e and without project tag.
Hm, there are several ways to achieve this.
- place a button/switch which defines, if you see the filtered results (c) or the rest (a, b, d, e)
- place a button, which lets you invert your selection. (select c and then press invert, so a, b, d, e gets selected and c unselected).

What do you think?

clovis's picture

I can help regarding french if needed :)

fooxl's picture

It's time to start translations. ;)

You can download the .ts file from github and send it back to me or fork the project and make a pull request or join the project on transifex:


fooxl's picture

Would be great. But I still don't know what the workflow should look like...

stupidus's picture

Thanks for the app, it's a great idea.

Is it intentional that projects and contexts are shown in capital letters? For example, if I have a context @work and I create a new entry it will add it as @WORK which will be seen as two different things by other programs.

fooxl's picture

I wasn't aware of this and honestly I don't know how I came up with this idea. :)

Will have to fix this in future releases. But as I'm trying to implement sorting and filtering in a new way I don't know, when I have time to correct it.

cuh7b5's picture

Sorting would be awesome! Please do that! :)
