Clmn is a beautiful task board native app for macOS. It is thoughtfully simple and unbearably efficient; nothing fancy, just enough. Clmn is designed for professionals that work mostly on laptops.

🚀 Multiple columns at once

Visibility is essential. Clmn shows multiple task columns at once. That gives an overview of all tasks that belong to the same domain.

Tasks within a list may be further organized into groups.

Lists + Groups + Tasks == Get Things Done.

⚡ Nothing fancy, just enough

There is nothing fancy in Clmn. A task is a task, and that is all. Everything else takes the focus away.

Clmn offers just enough functionalities:

  • Order tasks in lists and groups.
  • Complete a task. Click
  • Mark tasks as in progress. ⌘ + Click
  • Cancel a task. ⌥ + Click
  • Drag’n’drop tasks around the board.
  • Coloured backgrounds for tasks.
  • Select a task and show notes with details.
  • Use markdown for all text.
  • Link to tasks using URLs.
  • Use keyboard: ⌘ + ⏎ to save, Esc to dismiss.

🎁 How much it costs?

Clmn is free. It is open-source as well.

It takes time and effort to develop, distribute, maintain, and provide support. If you like the app, please consider donating. That would help us a lot! Thank you very much! 🙏

🔮 Future plans

One word: integrations. The idea is to integrate Clmn boards with various 3rd parties: Reminders, Github project, Jira, etc. Each Clmn board integration would show your tasks only so that you can stay focused on your work.

We can’t promise we will ever get enough resources to develop integrations, but we are allowed to dream :)

💁‍♂️ FAQ

> I hate hover buttons!

No worries! Turn off this feature in the settings :)

> What about my co-workers?

Clmn is a local app, sorry. Your tasks, only.

> No due dates or calendar or…?

No stars, important flags, priorities, sublists, even due dates, reminders, pomodoros… Clmn is not that kind of app. Instead, it is super simple on purpose: the less is more. You either dedicate to your tasks, or find an excuse :)

New features will be added very thoughtfully.

> iOS love?

Clmn is currently a Mac-only application. It is designed for professionals that spend most of their time behind big screens and laptops. We are considering making an iOS app, but not any time soon.
