Branston is a simple user story tracker.

Branston allows you to create accounts, log in, create user stories, and group them into projects and iterations. Individual user stories can be given acceptance conditions so that the geeks developing them know when they're done.


Writing stories is a two-step process. We write the user story first, then the testing scenarios for the story. Start off by writing the basic story as your first step.

Once the story itself is done, you can write one or more scenarios for the story. Each testing scenario describes a concrete test involving a user, some preconditions, and one or more testable outcomes for the story.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull.

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
