Not only does the command line work, but there’s a really nice terminal ui.
There’s a decent web view as well, but it seems to be view only.
Distributed issue tracking is great for people like me who sometimes write code without a network connection. You have your code and your issues to work on all in the same place! It’s probably terrible for project that have lots of non-technical commandline using folks working on them.
When I was toying around on a project with Aaron, I fell in love with ditz. We needed a quick way to keep track of bugs, without taking the time to set up a central bug repository. We wanted a bug tracker that could live in the same place as the code, where adding a friend to kick in on code didn’t require more accounts being set up and maintained.
Ditz did all of that, works straight from the command line, and even outputs some sweet html pages for display to the world.
Ditz is kind of abandonware right now as the original author has gone on to other things – but the state it is in right now is just perfect for my personal projects. If you are using it, I’ve added an RSS feed for the html output.
And the really good news? I just convinced the maintainer to make me a co-maintainer. So that means that I can integrate features! Once we get enough in for a new release, I’ll post an update right here!
