jdotxt is an open source, cross-platform Desktop tool for managing your todo list. It’s geared towards Gina Trapani’s todo.txt file format and stores all of your stuff in two human readable text files. Having these files on your owncloud, dropbox or any other cloud storage makes it easy as pie to keep your todos in sync across multiple devices.
Download and Installation
Download installer. When you launch jdotxt, you may be asked to download and install Java, which you should do in that case.
Mac OS X
- Make sure you have Java JRE >= 7 installed. E.g., by downloading and installing it from http://www.java.com
- As always: download, mount, drag&drop this file
Ubuntu >= 12.10 (Repository)
Open a terminal and execute the following three commands (line by line):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chms/jdotxt
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install jdotxt
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
First you must get JRE >= 7 by executing the following two commands (line by line):
sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre
sudo update-alternatives --config java
After executing the second line you will be asked, which version of Java you would like to use by default. Select the one that has version number 7 or higher in its path name.
Now continue with the instructions for Ubuntu >= 12.10 (see above)
Download and install the jdotxt Debian file. Of course this works on Ubuntu too, but it is highly recommended to use the repository, for automatic updates.
Generic (Works on Windows, GNU/Linux and Mac OS X)
Download the jar file and execute it using Java JRE >= 7 (http://www.java.com)
