Use Jira in Emacs org-mode.
To save the settings in your .emacs, you need only do 2 things:
- Set the
defcustomvariables defined in jiralib.el (actually only the
jiralib-urlis required, as the other 2 are usually computed from it correctly and is the case in the video demo):
3 matches for "\bdefcustom\b" in buffer: jiralib.el 55:(defcustom jiralib-host "" 107:(defcustom jiralib-wsdl-descriptor-url 120:(defcustom jiralib-url
- Write your password in
~/.authinfo, with machine being the (computed) jiralib-host, and the port being 80 (even if you are using https for Jira):
machine JIRALIB-HOST login USERNAME password XXXXX port 80
If you do not set USERNAME here, then it will be prompted using the minibuffer; if you set the wrong username/password, then it won’t work.
The emacs-soap-client package is required, I used to bundle it together with org-jira (because I had a patch for adding comments in Chinese), but tarsius pointed out to me it is not a good idea. So please install that package along with org-jira.
Update: the issue has been fixed by the author, and I’ve learned from him that emacs-soap-client is bundled with GNU Emacs itself now, and he will push the fix into it. So we just need to wait a bit more.
Here is the list of commands supported by org-jira, with a simple help (the first line of elisp doc). It is created with C-h a org-jira RET :-)
You can C-h f on each command to get more detailed help, or just read my ugly source code:-)

This plug-in is greatly inspired by org2blog.
The emacs-soap-client is the underlying library used to communicate with Jira. This project provided a sample jira2.el and I started with that file.
This readme is written using org-mode itself.
