The Hold Up
I commonly find myself at work with way too many projects and no simple way to track them all in one place.
And I think Basecamp is great, Trello is neat, and all the other project management apps and services out there are wonderful. But I want something really, really simple.
The name of a project, and its most recent status. Most likely that status is a reason why it's being held up. Hence, the title of this application.
Requires PHP 5.4+, the mysqli extension, a MySQL database, and some kind of authentication mechanism.
You will need to code in your own auth method into
To install the database, use
theholdup.sql. Then, rename
dbconn_mysql.php and fill it out with the relevant info.
On first login, you'll automatically be provisioned a workspace to use. Use the small form at the bottom of the index page to add a project. Double-click on the title of a project to rename it, double-click on its current status to update that status, drag and drop the projects to reorder them, click the DONE checkbox when it's done. Could not be more simple, I think.
There's the option to make your list of projects (without their statuses) public, and also the option to see all of your projects, including your "done" ones.
