Everdo – A Todo List and Getting Things Done App for Linux

Everdo Todo List App for Linux
Written by Martins D. Okoi

Everdo is a modern and beautifully-designed Electron-based task management application with which you can keep track of your work using tags, project folders, smart filters, and schedules. It doesn’t need a cloud account to work so your data will remain save on your PC.

Everdo features a modern and minimalist User Interface with an extremely clean, clutter-less, and uniform design in order to enhance speedy and distraction-free productivity.

Its aim is to relieve you of having to remember all the tasks you need to do by organizing them intuitively. It is built with GTD in mind to help users to complete their important tasks without skipping any as users are able to clear up their mind and organize stuff into an inbox, organize work tasks with tags, projects, and context-based tasks.

If you’re not familiar with GTD, it stands for Getting Things Done – a time management method created by David Allen, a  productivity consultant as described in his book, Getting Things Done.

    Two questions:

    1) Without a phone app it’ll never replace Wunderlist, which does, is free, cool and cross platform. Albeit not FOSS just F.

    2) The Pro version implies limits on the standard version. How is that reconciled with FOSS and code on GitHub? I mean if the code is available and I can play with it, what limits can the Pro version possibly unlock? I am confused and this niggly question really deserves some clarification methinks,

    • EverdoApp

      @bernd_wechner:disqus,
      Everdo is in open beta and there will be a phone app. Regarding Wunderlist – isn’t it SaaS? Everdo is a 100% desktop app. You don’t even need to sign up anywhere to use it.

      Regarding 2: please take look at the other comment above – it’s not FOSS.

    • Martins Divine Okoi

      @bernd_wechner:disqus
      – Regarding your first question, I believe @everdoapp:disqus’s response suffices.
      – Regarding your second question, I apologize for the misleading bullet point. Everdo is not open-source 🙂

      Thanks for reading and contributing intellectually.

  • EverdoApp

    Hello Martins, just noticed the article claims Everdo is open source – that’s not correct. The code is not publicly available. I wonder where this came from?

    • Martins Divine Okoi

      My apologies. That was a n accidental “placeholder” line as even the link was wrong.

      I’ve made the appropriate corrections.

  • Eventyret

    What is the wallpaper for this if i can ask ?

  • while I dont really require applications to be FOSS and I dont think users should be restricted on using something whether it is FOSS or not . . . However, I do think a website with the acronym “FOSS’ in the name of the site, most certainly should *only* be covering FOSS content.

    • Martins Divine Okoi

      See? It’s the same way I don’t think we are restricted to covering FOSS content alonoe.

      We support the open-source community and its related projects. Some of which might use open-source resources but aren’t open-source themeselves. Sometimes they aren’t even free.

      Freedom doesn’t have to be free afterall. See one of our writer’s take on that matter here -> https://www.fossmint.com/freedom-doesnt-have-to-be-free/

      The bottom line is, we want out readers to know about the many alternative applications they can run on their linux distros. Mos of the time they are FOSS. The readers will decide which niche suits them.

    So, my first thought is to see how it compares with MyLifeOrganized (MLO), the most powerful task manager I know of. At a glance I see nothing very new beyond “runs natively on Linux”.

    MLO runs fine with WINE on Linux and there are clients for Mac, iOS and Android, and data syncing options via wi-fi or cloud. It can be tried free for 45 days. From reading this article I can see no compelling reason at all to try Everdo. If it was open source that would be one, but it’s not. MLO is one of the few non-FOSS apps I run on Linux (BeyondCompare is another but that has an actual Linux client and doesn’t need WINE). MLO handles GTD and various other approaches to task management out of the box using templates and can be customised further.
