Nirvana 2 – Preview Release

On November 11, 2010 we made the upcoming Nirvana 2, a work-in-progress, available for preview.  We are very very excited about the reception it has received thus far.  We are letting the adventurous take it for a spin so that we can learn where we stand on a number of engineering related issues.

Some key points about Nirvana 2:

  • It is a complete rewrite from the ground up
  • It will run offline, without an internet connection
  • UI interaction is completely decoupled from network i/o, so it’s wicked fast
  • It has full internationalization support built in under the hood
  • It runs completely on top of the new Nirvana API
  • It is still a work in progress, and browser support is still limited

  4. Sounds awesome! But when I try to login with my credentials I get thrown back to the login screen and the email-field says “null”.

  6. Kudos on the improvements! I’m a long-time Remember the Milk user, but I’m keeping an eye on you guys constantly. Develop the Android app and support for recurring tasks and I’ll give Nirvana a serious try. ;-)

  8. Be sure to run through the migration process! Then do let us know if you still run into any problems.

  10. All of my areas (projects, next, etc) are empty. Each just says that help/tips should go here.

    I have ran through the migration process and it stated everything was successful.

  12. If you are experiencing problems migrating, there are a lot of discussions and solutions being offered over at

    Good search terms are migration, nirvana 2.0 or just n2.

  14. My problem seems to be isolated to Firefox 4 Beta 7. Everything looks great in Chrome!

  18. I’ve just enter in nirvana 2, and just 1 consideration, I really prefer the look and feel of the current Nirvana, it was less distracting and with less design…

  20. Loving Nirvana and currently trying Nirvana 2. I use Omnifocus on my Mac but needed something for my Windows PC at work – Nirvana is a good match! A few suggestions: (i) I much prefer the ‘today’, ‘tomorrow’ flags for due dates; (ii) is it possible to have a view that shows ALL tasks, grouped by status (i.e. today then next, then waiting, etc.) I keep forgetting that I have items in ‘waiting’ and want to chase them!, (iii) I’m sure it’s coming but some reformatting of the printed list would be great (title/owner, etc) (iv) again, I’m sure it’s coming but really keen to see email tickles and reminders in v2. Otherwise, thanks for a great product!

  22. Very nice to see a GTD oriented app that is actually clean and functional! I’ll make a full switch over once you have an android app.

Nirvana is a secure, cloud-based GTD® task manager accessible from your desktop web browser and mobile devices.

Free your mind to focus on actually getting things done. If you've had enough of generic to-do lists, create a free account today.

What is GTD®?

GTD® rests on the principle that a person needs to move tasks out of the mind by recording them externally. That way, the mind is freed from the job of remembering everything that needs to be done, and can concentrate on actually performing those tasks.
