Redmine Drafts Plugin

This plugin is an answer to issue #2910 : if you accidentally leave an issue while editing it, and if it's very large, it can drive you crazy to lose everything you typed before. There can be at least 2 approaches to avoid losing data this way :

  • forbid leaving the page with a javascript warning
  • saving drafts periodically so you can find and restore it when you're back on the issue page : this is the method this plugin tries to implement

Install

You can first take a look at general instructions for plugins here.

Then :

  • clone this repository in your plugins/ directory ; if you have a doubt you put it at the good level, you can check you have a plugins/redmine_drafts/init.rb file
  • run the migrations and copy assets, from your redmine root directory with the command : RAILS_ENV=production rake redmine:plugins
  • restart your Redmine instance (depends on how you host it)

Contribute

If you like this plugin, it's a good idea to contribute :

  • by giving feed back on what is cool, what should be improved
  • by reporting bugs : you can open issues directly on github for the moment
  • by forking it and sending pull request if you have a patch or a feature you want to implement
