Deft 0.2.0

Easy Distributed Feature Tracking

Deft is a simple distributed feature tracker (aka issue tracker, task tracker, bug tracker) designed to work with a distributed version control system such as Git.

Principles

  • All features have a status (e.g. new, in-development, ready-for-testing, ready-for-deployment)
  • Absolute prioritisation of features that have the same status
  • Store feature database alongside the code in VCS, not in another tool
  • Store the feature database in plain-text files that play well with VCS and diff/merge tools
  • Don't re-implement functionality that is already in the VCS

Getting Started

Install from PyPI using easy_install or pip. For example:

% pip install deft

After that you can use the deft command to create, manipulate and query Deft feature trackers. Use deft --help and/or read the Quickstart Guide to get started.

Support

You can join the Deft discussion group.

Issues are tracked with Deft itself. If you want to raise issues or feature requests:

  • Fork the repo & check it out locally
  • Follow the 'Developing Deft' steps
  • use the ./dev-deft command to create a new issue
  • commit the new issue
  • send a pull request

Yes... there should be a tool to make this process simpler and easy for a project's users to do.

Developing Deft

To work on the Deft code itself:

  • You need Python 2.7 and virtualenv installed
  • Check out from GitHub
  • Run make env to create a python environment for development
  • Run make to run all the tests.
  • The dev-deft script will run deft from the development environment. Run dev-deft --help for help.
