Because it's so flawless and easy to setup I want to share my Todo.txt & ownCloud setup I use every day.
Todo.txt is task tracking in a simple txt file you control. A set of simple rules help you get organized and there are several apps for all kind of devices.
Because no one should know what I want to do next or what I have done, it's important for me to host myself. The official Todo.txt apps for iOS and Android are no option, they only work with dropbox.
So here is how I host my own Todo.txt in ownCloud and how I keep it in sync with all of my devices:
On my workstation and laptop (which run with Linux), I use the Todo.txt Command Line tool, for me it's the fastest and most effective way. The ownCloud Sync-Clients do the hard work and keep the files up-to-date:
This just works, never had a conflict or outdated files. Configured one time and ready to work.
On my Android Phone I use FolderSync Lite together with Simpletask Cloudless. I choose FolderSync over the ownCloud Android Clients because it does not use that much battery (maybe it's better now). I use scheduling of 2 h which works good for me, on my phone I don’t need instant sync.
Simpletask Cloudless accesses just the todo.txt on your phone (synced by FolderSync):
Because todo.txt is just a plain text file, it can also be easily managed within ownCloud web interface and the texteditor app.
Now Get Things Done!
