All it takes to use [x]it! is a plain text file and the text editor of your choice.
The file extension is
.xit. Some examples:
todo.xitfor your personal tasks.
loans.xitto keep track of things that people borrowed from you.
movies.xitas a backlog of films you want to watch.
packing.xitwith things you really shouldn’t forget on your next camping trip.
You don’t have to use a specific tool for
the basic operations like creating items or checking them off can be done in every text editor.
But tooling support makes working with [x]it! more fun, powerful and convenient. The ones below were created and shared by other users. (They are independent projects.)
Feel free to develop your own editor plugin, app, library, helper program, or whatever else. If you like to share it with others, you can show it here.
You find the [x]it! file format specification on Github. It’s free and open for everyone to use under the CC0/OWFa license.
