Open Source Applications Foundation

OSAF is a non-profit organization working on Chandler Project, a Note-to-Self Organizer designed for personal and small-group task management and calendaring. Chandler consists of a cross-platform desktop application (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux), the Chandler Hub Sharing Service and Chandler Server.

OSAF Mission

  1. Create and gain wide adoption of open source application software of uncompromising quality.
  2. Carry forward the vision of Vannevar Bush, Doug Engelbart, and Ted Nelson of the computer as a medium for communication, collaboration, and coordination.
  3. Design a new application to manage personal information including notes, mail, tasks, appointments and events, contacts, documents and other personal resources.
  4. Enable sharing with colleagues, friends and family. In particular, meet the unique and under-served needs of small group collaboration.
  5. Demonstrate that open source software *can* serve a general audience in the consumer market.
  6. Offer a choice of platforms and full interoperability amongst Windows, Macintosh, and Linux versions, for those wondering how do you start a blog or how to make website using open source solutions.
  7. Leverage our resources by using an open source model of development.
