A tool I wrote



4: Adsense

Hi,
I made a little Python 3 tool over the last couple days, it's basically a console-based todo-list/bugtracker which is easy to use and targeted at single programmers or small teams working on smallish projects or prototypes who want something in addition to their usual source control software to better keep track of todo's and bugs that need to be (or have already been) fixed in a more convenient way than using a disposable text file or whatever. It is obviously not intended to be a complete and absolute replacement to a real bug tracking infrastructure, but it is considerably easier and faster to set up with a lot less overhead while still being a lot better than nothing (in my opinion). The idea is that it does both, and integrates reasonably well with a development workflow, imho.

I kinda wrote it to take a break and just complete something, it's fairly bare-bones but I'm posting it here in case anyone finds it useful. The script works under Linux, BSD, and Windows, and so probably Mac too, though I haven't tested the latter. You'll need a few pip packages for Windows, so grab the setuptools and pip installers (v3.3) from here (after installing Python 3), and then use the pip.exe you get to install "termcolor" and "colorama", and the script will work. Might have to turn on unicode too for cmd.exe, given it doesn't really support it: just type "chcp 1250" in it beforehand, that worked for me.

Here is the github repository. Feel free to send me pull requests if you have any suggestions for improvement, additional features, or have encountered any bugs, it's honestly a tiny script so I'm open to anything that could make it a better tool. It wasn't a huge time investment to write it, but again, if it's worth doing, it's worth doing well.

Sweet. 

 

Python is a great language to use for this sort of thing.

Nice! I have made a pull request to tweak a couple of things on the linux side.

That's pretty cool.  Perfect for people who don't need the full-blown JIRA.

Sounds cool! For people looking for task/bug tracking apps for small teams,I highly recommend Asana or Trello. Both are web/cloud based, and very simple to use! I've been using them both for a few years now and am really happy with them (although I prefer Asana for my own workflow).
