A beautiful CLI front-end for Nozbe written in Rust.

The core functionality of the excellent Wunderline app for Wunderlist is already present.

What is Nozbe?

Nozbe is an amazing to-do list and task management system that follows the Getting Things Done (GTD)® philosophy. The basic idea is to have an Inbox where you simply fill ideas and tasks as you get them throughout the day. Tasks in the Inbox are further processed based on their priority and urgency, and then finally, executed.

Nozbe has pretty good apps for web, desktop and mobile. However, I found all these quite lacking in terms of speed and usability. The overhead of switching between my projects to find the certain task I wanted to mark as done was a bit too much to handle. So I took some inspiration from the Wunderline app, and made this!


  • Extremely usable interface

  • Takes literally 10 seconds to set up

  • Add tasks to your Nozbe inbox in 2 seconds flat

  • Mark multiple tasks as done, or star them, with Fuzzy Search. All in a couple of jiffies! Made possible by the skim library

  • Conky integration for printing a nice summary (an Android widget but for your desktop)

From Binaries

Binary releases can be found at the Releases page. Select the version number, click the download icon and download linux-x86_64 artifacts. Unzip artifacts.zip to obtain your binary at target/release/nzb.

Note: Currently only linux-x86_64 is supported: macOS users can install from cargo or from source; support for Windows is unlikely due to a dependency on termion. PRs are highly appreciated for getting it working on Windows.
