Taskbook – A Board-based Tasks and Notes App for Linux

Nowadays users tend to use online todo and note-taking applications instead of hard paper. And if you are a Linux user and love to work in a command line, then today I have tasks and notes application for you to use in Linux CLI mode. You may have used or heard the name of Trello – a board based tasks application for various devices. This software – Taskbook is a Terminal-based plain text app where you can create to-do lists, take essential notes, and organize your all the tasks using boards. Taskbook can be used to make your daily notes or to-dos effectively, and you can also search for or manage it via multiple boards.

There are few easy commands that you can use to handle notes in Taskbook app like -t for a new task, -c for checking an item, -l for a list, etc. By default, it shows all the tasks in a board view but the time or date based views also available to use. If you are new in Terminal, Taskbook comes with a well-designed environment which is extremely easy to use.
