todoMini alternatives and similar software solutions

Based on the "tasks" category.
Alternatively, view omgnata alternatives based on common mentions on social networks and blogs.

Do you think we are missing an alternative of todoMini or a related project?

Add another 'tasks' Software solution



Minimal TODO list web app:

  • Web based.
  • Easy to deploy.
  • Self-hosted & FLOSS.
  • Allows multiple people to update a list.
  • Mobile friendly - "Add to Home Screen" webapp.
  • Simple text based format for easy editing (see below).

Surprisingly, I could not find software meeting these criteria.

Hosted Install

Get a fully hosted todoMini.

Self-hosted Install

  • Download a release or git clone the gh-pages branch.
  • Copy the files to your PHP web hosting.

Note: ensure that the data/ directory and files therein are writable by the user/group running PHP.

If you use todoMini, please give it a 'like' on alternativeto.net


To require authentication, first create a password file:

htpasswd -c /path/to/.htpasswd username

Then copy ./example.htaccess to .htaccess and edit it.


If you have multiple users, clone the directory for each user and create a unique htaccess login for each.

To create a shared list, symlink one of the TODO list files into each user's data directory.

Textfile format

The TODO lists use standard Markdown format:

 * [x] This is my first completed item.
 * [ ] Another uncompleted item.
 * [ ] Something else.
