Fulcrum

Fulcrum is an application to provide a user story based backlog management system for agile development teams. See the project page for more details.

Goals

Fulcrum is a clone of Pivotal Tracker. It will almost certainly never surpass the functionality, usability and sheer awesomeness of Pivotal Tracker, but aims to provide a usable alternative for users who require a Free and Open Source solution.

Installation

Fulcrum is still a work in progress, but if you're really keen to try it out these instructions will hopefully help you get up and running.

First up, your system will need the prerequisites for running Ruby on Rails 3.0.x installed

Once you have these:

# Checkout the project
$ git clone git://github.com/malclocke/fulcrum.git
$ cd fulcrum

# Install the project dependencies
$ gem install bundler
$ bundle install

# Set up the development database
$ rake db:setup
$ rake db:seed

# Start the local web server
$ rails server

You should then be able to navigate to http://localhost:3000/ in a web browser. You can log in with the test username test@example.com, password testpass.

If you wish to host a publicly available copy of Fulcrum, the easiest option is to host it on Heroku. You'll find full instructions on setting up Rails applications on their website.

Development

Fulcrum is currently welcoming contributions, but if you're planning on implementing a major feature please contact us first, your feature may already be in progress.

The following features are being developed actively at the moment:

  • Iterations
  • Comments

Particularly welcome at the time of writing would be UI improvement and clean ups.

For any development, please bear the following in mind:

  • Please send patches as either github pull requests or as git patches. Try to break patches up into the smallest logical blocks possible. We'd prefer to receive many small commits to one large one.
  • All patches should be covered by tests, and should not break the existing tests, unless a current test is invalidated by a code change. This includes Javascript, which is covered with a Jasmine test suite in spec/javascripts/.
  • For any UI changes, please try to follow the Tango theme guidelines.

Colophon

Fulcrum is built with the following Open Source technologies:
