Morg is a list manager that is geared toward helping you keep track of the things you need to do (i.e., tasks list) and the things you need to get (i.e., shopping lists).
Morg has the following design goals:
- Hierarchical Lists: Morg allows items to be arranged hierarchically, i.e., an item may have subitems, which, in turn, may have further subitems to any level of nesting.
- Arbitrary Tags: Each item may be associated with any number of properties such as name, time slot, priority, price, quantity, and so on. Properties may be repeated; thus, for example, an item may, if you like, have more than one name, more than one subitem, and even more than one parent item.
- Versatility: Morg does not adhere to any particular time management methodology (or fad). Rather, it implements a sound data model and provides functions to manipulate that data and then gets out of your way, which means you can adapt it your particular needs and style.
- Flexibility: Don't like the predefined properties? Change them or even get rid of them and add your own. For example, if you don't want hierarchical lists, you can delete the properties that facilitate list nesting.
- Portability: Morg stores its data in an SQLite database. On laptops and desktops, it is written in Python and, so, will work wherever Python is available. It also has an Android app. And, finally, it supports syncing across devices, which means you can take your TODO and shopping lists with you anywhere and have updates propagate without requiring a bunch of other tools.
- Security: Your task and shopping list can be intensely personal to you. No one else should have access to these things without your consent. Thus, Morg has support for database encryption. Moreover, syncing is peer-to-peer, i.e., syncing between your phone and laptop will not involve a third-party server.
In short, Morg helps you stay on top of all the things you need to get and/or get done before you end up in the morgue...
