Bike Compatible Apps

Bike supports three file formats bike, opml, and txt as described in Using Documents. Each is what I would describe as an "open" file format, a format for structured data that is already supported by other applications.
The OPML format in particular is a common standard for outlines. If you want to share outlines with another app OPML is likely your best bet. Here is a list of OPML compatible apps on the opml.org website.

This list welcome your feedback, additions, results, and notes. I have made this list by searching and reading product pages and release notes. Some things may be out of date or just untrue. Please let me know what needs fixing!
  • Bike (macOS) – Bike can read and write bike, opml, and txt directly to the file system as a supported file format. It can also read/write those formats to the clipboard.
  • Checkvist (Web) – Import and export OPML. Copy and paste outlines with Bike, may need formatting cleanup.
  • Drummer (Web + Electron) – Uses OPML as native format. The Electron version saves OPML directly to disk so you can work on the same file with Bike and Drummer without import/export. Both the web and Electron versions support import and export of OPML. Copy and paste outlines with Bike.
  • Dynalist (Web) – Import and export OPML. Copy and paste outlines with Bike, many need formatting cleanup.
  • iThoughtsX (macOS, iOS, Windows) – Import and export OPML. Copy and paste outlines with Bike, may need formatting cleanup.

  • Logseq (Electron) – Import and export OPML. Copy and paste outlines with Bike, may need formatting cleanup.
  • Mellel (macOS + iOS) – Import and export OPML. A multilingual word processor which assigns different formatting styles to each outline level.
  • MindNode (macOS + iOS) – Import and export OPML. Copy and paste outlines with Bike.
  • OmniOutliner (macOS + iOS) – OPML mode available. Work on the same file in Bike and OmniOutliner without import/export. Share an OPML document on iCloud Drive and edit on iOS with OmniOutliner and on macOS with Bike and/or OmniOutliner. Some of OmniOutliner's features are only supported in its ooutline file format, and will not persist when using OPML mode.
  • OutlineEdit (macOS) – Import and export OPML. Copy and paste outlines with Bike, may need formatting cleanup
  • Outlinely (macOS + iOS) – Import and export OPML. Copy and paste outlines with Bike, may need formatting cleanup.
  • Outliner (iOS) – Uses OPML as its native document format. I think you can share an OPML document on iCloud and edit on iOS with Outliner and on macOS with Bike. I have not tested this.
