Bug Day Results

posted Mar 1, 2009, 7:36 PM by Darren Hart

I finally managed to scrounge up some time to hack on BrainDump again.  Had a fairly productive day, fixing the following open tickets:
  • 5 - Implement configuration system
  • 14 - Due date column doesn't distinguish between years
  • 12 - Add a "Due Today" date filter
I also made some internal changes including the long needed base subclass for Task and Project (called Actionable) as well as a new Actionable.state field which caches the state as defined by start_date, due_date, and completed.  Lastly, overdue and upcoming tasks are now presented in red and yellow respectively, making it easier to identify urgent items.  Pull down the latest git and try it out!


Git Migration

Thanks to Simplistic Complexity for a simple write-up on migrating svn to git.  And thanks to GitHub for a free hosting service so easy to setup it's truly absurd.  Enjoy the GitHub source code browsing and the new wiki they're also providing BrainDump.  See the Downloads page for more details.

BrainDump 0.2.3 Snapshot

posted Nov 22, 2008, 9:35 PM by Darren Hart   [ updated Nov 23, 2008, 3:14 PM ]

I've just uploaded the current SVN snapshot as version 0.2.3 to the Downloads page.  This is the first truly publicly available version of the source and the starting point for community involvement.  BrainDump is still in its infancy, many kinks need to be ironed out in workflow, there is a lot of code cleanup and refactoring to do, it has several bugs, it will eat your data, and a few areas are clearly not optimized well (ok, at all!).  However, this release should give you an idea of what we hope to achieve with BrainDump, and plenty of opportunity to contribute yourself.  Happy Hacking!

New Icon

I spent a few hours tinkering with Inkscape.  I think I've come up with a professional looking simple icon that conveys the appropriate image of the application. What do you think?  (Attached here in SVG and visible in the upper-left of the web-site).

A home of its own

BrainDump finally has it's own homepage and mailing lists.  Thanks to Google Sites for the simple tools.
