JTX Board - Journals, Notes, and Tasks in Android (iCAL and DAV)

Continuing the discussion from Synchronizing notes over CalDAV as vjournal format?:

@patrickunterwegs is the dev of this cool app!

jtx Board, an Android app that supports VTODO and VJOURNAL without making major compromises. Synchronization is done over DAVx5 and Nextcloud already fully supports it (there is no web interface for VJOURNAL though). However, you can check it out here:

Here is the gitlab repo

Btw. it’s open source, it’s available on app stores but also on f-Droid. So I hope it’s okay to also promote it here. :slight_smile:


Thank sound great

I just installed Davx5 and jtxBoard and davx5 is connected and synced with my Nextcloud but jtxBoard simply don’t load anything, no notes, no task and no journal

I even disconnected davx5 install jtxboard then reconnect my nextcloud without success

What is the catch ?

Ask the developer on github

I got this working and its really good, its just it sucks that there’s no web app for desktop.
But for tasks its really good.

As far as I understand, currently there is no other way than manipulating the SQL database to enable VJOURNAL for an existing NC calendar, right? So using the method described by nfetisov:

Is there still no native support VJOURNA?

I use jtx Board and support the initiative to be able to sync VJOURNAL entries over NC. At the moment, I’ll look for other ways to back up my journal entries so they don’t get lost when I lose or break my current mobile device.

Yeah, I asked nc devs about this and it isn’t something they will be supporting directly. But, people can always put together their own app.

so you have to write a little app providing that service?

Well, someone has to…

As @just said, there are currently no efforts being made by the Nextcloud developers to implement this feature. So the only thing left is for a third party to provide an app or extension, which means you have to do it your self, or maybe you get lucky and someone else does it, and shares it with the community…

However, I’m not sure how easy it would be to implement this. It could as well be that it requires a bit more than just a “little” app. :wink:

Loving JTX board and I really home someone builds a vjournal and vnotes app for nextcloud just to at least be able to store the vjournal/vnote data for jtx. It could be called JTX data app and it would just hold the data. Does not even need to be usable as an app.

So, this thread explains why I cannot choose my nextcloud account synced through DAVx to sync my journal entries. That really sucks. And worsen yet, doesn’t look like there are any devs that are showing any interest in making it so. Unfortunately, I am not a developer or I would work on it. :slightly_frowning_face:

Sorry, if I didn’t get the point, but Sync with DAVx5 - jtx Board says Nextcloud supports VJOURNAL and VTODO “All compatible :sunglasses:”.
But: No web support for Journals & Notes.

As I read this, you can use Nextcloud to backup jour JTX Board data.
