Ladybug 🐞

Travis CI GitHub release GitHub top language License Twitter Donate

Ladybug is a simple iOS app handles Radar links (rdar://) gracefully.

Developers have mixed feeling about radars. Some of radars never get close or response. Ladybug doesn't try to “fix” this situation, but it helps you to manage radar links or retrieve your records from Open Radar. If you want to file a radar while cross-posting to Open Radar, consider using Brisk.


This is how you duplicate a radar in 2018. Open a rdar:// link, then duplicate it in Brisk!

Demo of user tapped a radar link in Tweetbot and opened Ladybug to view Open Radar, then open Brisk for filing a duplicated radar.

As an iOS developer, I follow a lot of developers on Twitter. It's painful every time I saw a rdar:// link in Tweetbot but cannot tap it to open. Therefore I created Ladybug, a solution for iOS to open or bookmark Radar links.

I use a lot of tools made by other developers. And I always want to contribute something to the community. With Ladybug I finally found something: 1. I need. 2. others might need too. 3. I can do. Consider Ladybug my love letter to Apple dev community 😍. Enjoy!
