Project Flow & Tracker "Paris" - Part 3: Towards integration with Open Atrium via our very own branded Feature Server!Fri, 2009-08-14 19:36 — victorkane
So today finally Project Flow & Tracker meets Open Atrium, and does so in style. My friends at Development Seed just told me about the new availability of the feature server code (w00t! out just a couple of days right here: http://code.developmentseed.org/featureserver/dashboard), not to mention a spanking new theme, singular,
"a minimal theme that can be rebranded quickly and simply using background images a la Twitter. The theme comes with several prepackaged backgrounds and site administrators are encouraged to upload their own."
also out just a couple of days, and which can be found at http://code.developmentseed.org/singular/dashboard . Singular and depends on the base theme Tao: http://code.developmentseed.org/singular/dashboard (also fresh meat!).
So we will be diving right in. Here are the steps we will be taking, so hang on to your mice, it's going to be a fun ride:
- First steps with Open Atrium itself (OK, what is it?)
- First login as admin
- Creating a group
- Creating a project and some project docs
- Inviting some more team members
- Working together
- Our bare bones "Feature Machine" morphs into the stylishly themed and branded AWebFactory Feature Server!
- Feature Server
- We stick our feature onto our Feature Server
- Sticking our feature on the feature server
Time to commit our work to bzr!
- Importing Project Flow & Tracker as a feature into our Open Atrium based PFT site
- First steps for integration of PFT feature into Open Atrium
- Bringing back the full PFT feature set.
- Making PFT usable
- Using PFT to develop PFT
- Development environment
Based on the principles of ideas and architecture over coding, community based collaboration over individual and isolated effort, I have decided to redo my Project Flow & Tracker agile based project management tool based on the new Open Atrium "do-it-yourself project" kit. Not only do I get a huge kick in the butt for starters, but I can give back all the new functionality I develop as shareable features. Talk about win-win!
