The point of the list above is to have a reasonably broad survey of the options, but avoid having an overwhelming list. Over time, each of the applications on this list should have a myndmess-wiki article describing how the application meets the [[requirements]] of the myndmess ecosystem (or perhaps, how it doesn't fit into the ecosystem). As of this writing (on 2020-05-08), [[User:RobLa]] is pretty opinionated about almost all of the items on the list, but as this page grows, that will become less-and-less the case.

This is non-comprehensive list of a few personal organization applications:

The point of the list above is to have a reasonably broad survey of the options, but avoid having an overwhelming list. Over time, each of the applications on this list should have a myndmess-wiki article describing how the application meets the requirements of the myndmess ecosystem (or perhaps, how it doesn't fit into the ecosystem). As of this writing (on 2020-05-08), User:RobLa is pretty opinionated about almost all of the items on the list, but as this page grows, that will become less-and-less the case.
