Omega Issue Tracker
Traditional issue trackers emphasize metadata and workflow and tend to add considerable overhead to a project. They make little sense for small, highly collaborative teams.
Ω is not traditional. It facilitates squashing issues, not documenting their life stories. No administrivia.
Give it a whirl at http://omegatracker.herokuapp.com. The redis database there is severely limited, but it should suffice as a demo.
- you never need to refresh to get updates
- chat with team members in the same context
- optional growl-like notifications even outside the browser (Chrome only, for now)
- everything you need on a single page
- no need to sign up for yet another account with yet another password
- use tags and flexible filtering to achieve any workflow you want
- easy setup thanks to few dependencies
- create as many as you need (one per task/feature works well)
- can mark 'top secret' if you want some privacy (for total security, host Ω behind your firewall)
Depending on your needs, you could create your project on the demo site. But to have Ω all to yourself, there are a couple of options:
Install it on your own server
- Install node.js (which comes with npm)
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:wachunga/omega.git
cd omega; npm install
Install it in the cloud via a PaaS like Heroku, OpenShift, etc.
- For Heroku, just follow these instructions.
Start the server:
Or, to specify options:
node server [--redis] [--port <port>] [--pass <password>]
<redis> - use Redis for persistence instead of json on the file system.
<port> - Where the server listens for connections. Defaults to 1337.
<password> - Password required for accessing project admin section. Defaults to 'admin'. (Default username is also 'admin'.)
Then just open a browser to
http://localhost:1337 or wherever.
Ω is unit tested using Jasmine. Open
tests/SpecRunner.html to run the tests.
