Motiro is a project tracking tool written in Ruby using
Rails. It finally made to version 0.5.
This is the ninth release and includes the first draft
for the ‘Planned features’ news channel, a way to publish
what the development team is working on. This little
embryo is supposed to turn into a feature tracking and
voting system in the near future.
The next addition is an old request: someway to add new
users. Results were pretty good on this area. Registration
is very simple, you won’t need to fill a big form, you won’t
need to give your email address and you won’t even need to
leave the main page to sign up. Just check the ‘New user’
box and pick yourself a username and a password.
Now that people can sign themselves up, access control was
improved for wiki pages editing. Each page’s original author
can name who, besides herself, is allowed to edit it.
Anyone interested in seeing the live system, can jump to
Motiro’s Motiro (no it is not a typo: any wannabe development
tool is used on its own development):
Maybe you as rubysts will be interested also on the source.
Even if you don’t mean to host your own Motiro, you may want
to learn something (not that I have much to teach, but you can
try). The application is shipped under GPL. Licensing details
inside the package (I promise you won’t be breaking any law
just by downloading the thing):
Do not forget to have fun!
