I want to get reminders on specific dates.

The web app must be FLOSS and I want to self-host it on my own server (GNU/Linux).


  • Adding a reminder should be hassle-free and quick. Ideally it only shows a date and a title/description field.

  • Each reminder must be sent either via SMTP (e-mail) or via XMPP (Jabber). One message per reminder.

  • Each message should contain a confirmation link. Unless I visit this specific URL, the reminder should be sent again (in configurable intervals).

I don’t necessarily look for a full calendar application; in fact, I’d prefer a smaller, specialized tool. But if a calendar fulfils all requirements, it’s certainly acceptable.

  • How about your own machine? Thunderbird can do this. – Nemo Oct 5 '15 at 19:41
  • @Nemo: This would only help when I’m sitting at this machine, but I primarily need this solution in situations where I’m not. – unor Oct 5 '15 at 19:49
