Ardi - Outliner & Project Manager.
Efficient & intuitive way to maintain notes & projects.

A program that collects random bits of data
and make sense out of them.

On mysterious "Quest" to obtain the fire of inspiration...

The Road to Enlightenment

Ardi operates on discrete items - topics and notes and allow text to be organized in a tree structure or hierarchy. Program knows how to bring structure into topics so it's easy to see how ideas connect to each other. It's possible to create basic structures with Roman numerals followed by capital letters followed by Arabic numerals, etc. There is no right or wrong way to make an outline. You can do a combination of short phrases with long sentences, or stick with one or the other. The items can be combined into categories and tagged, prioritized, marked, hoisted (or elevated in outline), grouped, colorized, bunched, merged, divided, separated into different databases, synchronized to the Cloud storage or edited offline, shared and kept private. And when we talk about item it's note, topic, image, album (or collection of images), sentence (or big note in outline), bookmark and many other things.

Outliner with project-management & GTD time-management methods.

Ardi brings best methods popular in data management software - classical project management techniques, presented by Gantt Charts, Work Breakdown structures and CPM (Critical Path Method) and available in various applications (MS Project and OmniPlan are most popular) with techniques described by David Allen and known as Getting Things Done (GTD) or a time-management method.

Program gives the user leverage to work with day-to-day data processing routines and managing complex depth projects with scalable toolset that allows to look at the big picture or focus on details if needed.

Ardi had originated from ideas of InfoSelect and EccoPro organizers which were classical outliners and also partially from Lotus Notes, which has well designed user interface with rich set of features. Over the time its tasks management functionality transformed into project-management and later GTD flavor was added. The process of development continues as new and proven methods are implemented but simple and intuitive ways to manage data are still maintained and remain highest priority for the developers.


Program was designed to run natively on various platforms, including OSX, Windows, Linux(X11), iOS. The main testing platforms are Linux Ubuntu 12.04, 14.04, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.2, OS X 10.10, iOS 8, Windows 7. Windows XP & Vista supported as well but additional Microsoft library might be required, depending on the setup. Also if your machine is Linux with X.11 installed there is a big chance Ardi will run as well.
