I'm looking for a free/opensource todo webapp that I can host myself and that provides a good user experience on a phone. I didn't find any for now.

First there were myToDoListPHP by Antonio Lupetti (http://woork.blogspot.de/2007/10/simple-to-do-list-in-php-and-ajax-to.html). Then it was forked by Max Pozdeev (http://blog.mytinytodo.net/) that made the application what it is today. Then it was forked again by Alexander Adam (http://www.yourtinytodo.net/) that brought new interesting features in version 1.0a.

Now what we have with yourtinytodo is a todo list with the following features :

  • Multiple lists
  • Task notes
  • Tags (and tag cloud)
  • Due dates (input format: y-m-d, m/d/y, d.m.y, m/d, d.m)
  • Priority (-1, 0, +1, +2) -Different sortings including sort by drag-and-drop
  • Search
  • Password protection
  • Smart syntax improves creation of tasks (usage: /priority/ Task /tags/)
  • Print-friendly CSS
  • Style for mobiles devices
  • multi user support
  • notifications

Currently I'm using mytinytodo which is not usable on a phone, like it is the case for yourtinytodo : The mobile UI is neither suitable nor usable on small/touch screens. There is no API (https://github.com/alex-LE/yourTinyTodo/issues/12) for now ; I think that's why there isn't any phone app.

The best example of what I would like to see is what Andrew Dolgov did with Tiny Tiny RSS. TT-RSS is an open source web-based news feed reader/aggregator that features a nice JSON based API. It enabled developpers to create a lot of alternative client apps (https://github.com/search?q=tt-rss) based on this API, including great phone apps.

I'm sure lot of people are also interested into this need to host its own todo webapp, so :

  • If someone can redirect me to an existing project that provides what I'm looking for, please do so :D
  • Else, developpers I/we need you.

Thanks much.

Shopping recommendations are off topic. – ChrisF Jan 19 '13 at 14:08
@ChrisF According to the FAQ, app recommandations are allowed unless prior search is shown. I did some researches before posting and I also give my experience on using existing solutions. Now, if you consider my question is not specific enough or not interesting people I think it's really sad. – jeekajoo Jan 19 '13 at 14:53
To me it reads like a shopping request. If you disagree with the closure you can ask in Web Applications Chat, on Web Applications Meta or flag it for another moderator to review. – ChrisF Jan 19 '13 at 14:56
This guy has been very specific about his needs and has done prior research. This is a good question for this site and the FAQ he mentions backs that up. – Tobu Jan 25 '13 at 13:22
Web Applications does not support self-hosted applications. The closest you are looking for within Web Applications scope is Trello. – phwd Jan 25 '13 at 15:13
