Retrospectiva: Open Source Project Management Rails App
Retrospectiva is a new open-source project management tool built as a Rails application. It's interesting from two angles: first, as a project management tool, as it was designed; but secondly as a large, well built Rails 2.3 app to learn from.
Retrospectiva is a solid example of a rare sort of open source Rails project: one that's well presented, user friendly, and solidly developed. It has a well designed homepage with lots of screenshots and feature guides, and there's even a single step installation process so you can get up and running from a single line at your Terminal. Give it a shot:
wget -O - http://retrospectiva.org/download/script/remote/retrospectiva_installer.rb | ruby
Note: If you have an error like
undefined method `destroy' for #Svn::Ext::Core::Apr_pool_wrapper_toccur, then download the above installer, go into the newly created
retrospectivadirectory and add
SCM_SUBVERSION_ENABLED = falseas the first line in
config/environment.rb. Then run
retrospectiva_installer.rbdirectly and installation will complete. I found this necessary to complete on OS X Snow Leopard.
