Linum is a tool for tasks visualization — like Gantt chart, but more compact.

Linum GitHub project page.


If you need to visualize your schedule or working plan you are welcome to use Linum. Actually, you are able to use Gantt charts, but they are overloaded with extra information if you have many simple tasks. Gantt charts are better when tasks are sequential and connected between themselves.

Linum allows you to visualize your information on chosen time interval (week, month, year) like a timetable briefly and convenient.
