The source code is hosted in Sourceforge. It is licensed under the GPL V3 license, so, you can read the code, modify or redistribute it according to the license terms


Until I upload the different binaries (I will glad if you compile it in other platforms and send my the binaries) you have to compile the code. To do it, first you have to install the dependencies: Qt and Enchant, in Linux you will find them in your repositories

To compile the code, access via terminal to the folder you have decompress the code and type


You do not need to install the program to test it, just run Today


I have found very useful the work of Graeme Gott, developer of FocusWriter, for the spell checking. FocusWriter is a fantastic distraction free application focused in writers. Do not doubt to test it if you like to write documentation or books.
