things2thl – migrate from Things to The Hit List

May 19th, 2009 · 4 Comments

I’ve been meaning to give The Hit List a good try since I got it as part of the Macheist 3 bundle. However, I have to continue tracking my tasks, and I have all of them already in the awesome Things (about which I have written before). So I have spent the last few days putting together a script to migrate my data from Things to THL. You can find it here: You can install it as a gem package or download the source code. There is not much documentation for now, but look at the help (things2thl -h) and you should figure it out quite easily.

If you find anything that is broken, or you have any type of feedback, please let me know (ideally, create an issue in github).

A full review of THL will follow when I’ve had a few days to play with it.

    Well the only thing broken is that these apps don't run on windows — or did I miss something? Otherwise, thanks for bringing these to my attention.

    Well… no, they don't run under Windows. They are Mac apps. I consider this a feature, not a bug :-)

    Everyone have been endlessly waiting for their iPhone app. The whole of twitter cries about it!. Still no sight of it. Things with the iPhone and Mac client is good enough for now!

    Agree – that's why I added the –inbox option, at the request of a user who uses the Things iPhone client to capture tasks, and then synchronizes Things to THL on his machine.
