Planner: A Beautiful Task Manager for Linux

If you’re in the market for a beautiful task manager for your Linux machine, you should really consider taking a look at Planner. Developed by the same guy who released Byte, Planner is a free and open-source task manager that allows you to manage your tasks, sub-tasks, projects, and sub-projects.

How Planner works:

1. Collect your ideas – The Inbox is your default task list in Planner. When you add a task, it goes straight to your Inbox unless you specify that the task goes into a project.

2. Get Organized – Create a project for each of your goals, then add the steps to reach them. Review these regularly to stay on top of things.

3. Calendar and Events – See your calendar events and plan your time effectively. Planner will remind you on the right day.

4. Be even more organized – Add a due date to your tasks, create labels, use checklists.

If you’re running Elementary OS you can install Planner from the AppCenter. Planner is also available as a Flatpack. If you’re running Arch or any Arch-based distro, Planner is available in the AUR and Fedora users can find Planner in the Fedora repos.  You can also compile it from source.
