Todour is an application for handling todo.txt files (as made famous by Gina Trapani of Lifehacker) on Windows, Mac and Linux. The format is especially practical for an approach similar to the one suggested in the book Getting Things Done by David Allen, often referred to as GTD.
The application is superbly simple and has worked well for me in daily usage for
months years now. Just point it to where the todo.txt file is kept in settings and off you go.
There is no support for anything fancy, even if the feature set is slowly increasing. The application is supposed to be robust and simple.
The application always works directly on the todo.txt and done.txt files when any action is performed. There is no caching or intermediate storage of any kind or need to save.
The application should be mostly self explanatory, but here is a manual in case it’s needed. I hope it is of some value to you using it.
Note that if you are updating, this version will automatically check for updates ca once per week. If you’d rather not have that happen, there is a setting to turn that off.
