CLI task manager built with Haskell and SQLite.

TaskLite is a free and open source task list manager.

Why Another CLI Task Manager?

Taskwarrior has been the gold standard for CLI task managers so far. However, I repeatedly lost tasks due to weird bugs and syncing issues. I also found several UI decisions inept and wanted something with a better workflow. But probably most importantly I couldn't see myself contributing to a C++ project. I had been working with C++ at university and it wasn't pleasant.

To sum it up: I finally wanted something which I could fully own and use until the end of days. That means:

- Does not suddenly get bought by a bigger fish and get closed down or made unusable (looking at you Wunderlist) - Is written in a high-performance programming language, yet gives me lot's of guarantees about the code's stability and makes it easy for other developers to contribute - Free software - With a stable, future proof, powerful, and fast backend (currently SQLite, but support for plain files and Git is planned)
