Tyme 1 & High Sierra

When we released Tyme 2 in February 2016, we also discontinued Tyme 1. But we also made sure that it still works on macOS Sierra by pushing a last update. Now with the release of High Sierra, we can not guarantee that Tyme 1 still works.

TL;DR: Tyme 1 is not fully compatible with High Sierra. Tyme 2 is of course fully compatible.

If you’re affected by this issue and Tyme 1 is crashing upon startup, you can still transfer your data to Tyme 2 by following these steps:

  • Please download the SQLLiteBrowser: http://sqlitebrowser.org
  • Open the Tyme 1 database in this folder: ~/Library/Containers/de.nulldesign.tyme.osx/Data/Library/Application Support/de.nulldesign.tyme/
  • Close SQLLiteBrowser
  • You now should have only one file in that folder: Tyme.storedata (SQLLiteBrowser reduces the three database files into one)
  • Open Tyme 2 and import the file Tyme.storedata

If Tyme 2 complains that the file isn’t a proper Tyme 1 backup file, don’t worry, everything is fixable. Follow these steps to repair it:

  • Open the Tyme 1 database again
  • Select File > Export > SQL and save the file
  • Click “New Database” and give it a filename
  • Select File > Import > SQL and select the previous saved SQL file
  • Save and then rename the file extension to .storedata
  • Import it in Tyme 2
