Part of a philosophy, part of a concept. Change gears in 2021 with us!
An appetizer for the planned Focus|Project, come and try!
It can now be thought of as a tiny agile tool, a
basic, but fast Trello client with some extras (search, edit/"imagify" & prioritize your cards and todos rapidly), or
a note/snapshot taking PC app with a Trello backend (Joplin, MicroPad, Simplenote are perhaps somewhat similar tools)
Perhaps this nippy app can already help - whether when zoning in, or looking out (e.g. when planning a sprint) - more info at https://f-p.app, feel free to try (the video from last year... things improved :) )
And when it just isn't enough ... you're welcome to go for Trello's rich functionality powerhouse, including their mobile app!
(Btw we like Trello! Feel free to get acquainted at: https://trello.com/ if need be - the app won't do much without a Trello account.)
What's waiting for you?
From the top of my mind:
NEW: Offline Mode - some card & todo ops (incomplete beta)
New: Data Snapshots - helps to undo, or view/check back offline!
new: Introductory Wayland global shortcut support
Advanced todo support (due date, member), create several quickly!
Take screenshots (as description/attachment), view and edit images (annotate, flip, resize ...)
Basic attachments support on the active card - view, add, delete, save, drag & drop into the description
Clipboard-friendly hyperlink editor, with some rich editing features
Advanced editing features for the card description (devs: we do go beyond the basic "Notepad" experience), to take markdown notes quickly - add rich content directly from the clipboard/drag&drops (gets more or less converted)
Standard due dates (e.g. "due tomorrow")
Checklist items on steroids (multi-item ops + rich editing - an easy way to link to a subtask card if its link is on the clipboard)
A quick "local" search ('filter') + sorting on the current list/board,
A mostly followed keyboard-first principle: many shortcuts
Apparently handles cards well in the 100s or even 1000s
(Confession: when running it from the console, you'll also see a number of warnings, and perhaps an error about a missing en locale, each of yet unidentified origins ¯\(ツ)/¯)
Some distros may not like this snap, Debian, Ubuntu Mate, ZorinOS 15 Core seem to pan out.
The app is currently free and will likely remain free of charge without ads for a broad audience (well, wouldn't ads just defeat the purpose? :) ) especially for personal, academic and open-source use.
Even for professional use, a very reasonable pricing is in mind.

F|P is is just the beta of the Trello integration of a bigger thing to come (it does theoretically exist, stop laughing! :) )
Enable snaps on Linux Mint and install Focus|Project for Trello Preview
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), Linux Mint 19 (Tara), Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa) and the latest release, Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana).
You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu.
On Linux Mint 20, /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref needs to be removed before Snap can be installed. This can be accomplished from the command line:
