2013-02-02: Wyrd 1.4.6 has been released. This is a maintenance release which fixes a variety of bugs and corrects a compilation error with OCaml 4.0. See the ChangeLog for more details.
Wyrd is a text-based front-end to Remind, a sophisticated calendar and alarm program. Remind's power lies in its programmability, and Wyrd does not hide this capability behind flashy GUI dialogs. Rather, Wyrd is designed to make you more efficient at editing your reminder files directly. It also offers a scrollable timetable suitable for visualizing your schedule at a glance. You can check out a screenshot, or take a short tour with the flash demo (3.1 MB).
Unlike most of the calendar applications available today, Wyrd is designed to be both lightweight and fast. Startup time is negligible, UI navigation is instantaneous, and the wyrd process typically consumes less than 2MB of resident memory.
Wyrd is Free Software, released under Version 2 of the GNU General Public License.
If you want to compile Wyrd from source, you will need:
OS X users should check the notes on OS X support.
NetBSD users: since NetBSD is one of the few platforms that does not use
ncurses as the standard curses implementation, you should first install the
and then configure Wyrd using
./configure CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/pkg/include LDFLAGS=-L/usr/pkg/lib --with-ncurses".
