Forget

Customizable, Simple, Cross-platform Terminal "todo" app.

Build Status Latest Version

A beautiful (thanks to tui.rs) command line app to keep you from forgetting!! forget uses termion for rendering as such it is cross platform (fonts may differ). forget is highly customizable, key bindings, colors, icons, text and titles. forget's configuration and "database" files will save to $HOME/.forget/ this is where the config file can be edited. forget is a multi-threaded application the UI event loop and input loop each run on a separate thread as well as any command spawned, everything is cleaned up when the main thread exits.

forget keeps track of adding and removing sticky notes, sticky note items (todos), and editing the items that have been created. Along with each sticky note item a command can be run when the item is selected (press Enter while highlighted) this will run in a separate process and will not affect the UI.
