Todour 2.10 – portable

A new release, 2.10, is now available on

This release is focused on fixing issues with the portable mode, so if you have 2.09 and are not using portable mode, this release has nothing new.

For the ones of you using portable mode, the application now takes the argument “-portable” and will then search for an .ini file in it’s current directory (there is a shortcut in the .zip archive that should start in the correct mode). The .ini file will be created in a directory called “Nerdur”.

Please try it out and let me know if it works as expected.

Todour finally open source and on GitHub

So, I finally got around to it. You can find the source code of Todour on GitHub

There is plenty of room for improvements as most of the code has grown organically from a minor experiment that I was doing some years ago and I don’t really code that much nowadays. Anyway, I put it under GPL for simple sharing in any form. Hope it’s of value to someone.


Advanced search in Todour 2.06 (preliminary)

Advanced searching has been implemented and is being tested for the 2.06 release of Todour.

The search will be able to handle multiple search words including negative ones, like below where all lines with “test2” and “test1” but not test4 will be matched.


The negative matching is especially convenient when wanting to exclude a project or context. I use it for excluding the “@work” context when I am not working for example but you can of course find many other uses for it.

Stay tuned for the 2.06 release coming quite soon…

Context locking in Todour

The 2.05 version of Todour will have a context lock feature. That means that when the context is “locked”, it’s automatically added to any new line. So for instance if your’re working on a +project1, you can search for it, press the lock and then just add all the todos you want. All will have +project1 added to them so they keep the context you’re in.
