Tools for visualizing and quick editing of effort estimations
EstimationTools includes macros that visualize remaining effort estimations, e.g., as Burndown Chart, as well as an extension that allows inline editing of estimations in the query view.
Creates burn down chart for selected tickets.
This macro creates a chart that can be used to visualize the progress in a milestone (e.g., sprint or product backlog). For a given set of tickets and a time frame, the remaining estimated effort is calculated.
The macro has the following parameters:
|query||a comma-separated list of query parameters for the ticket selection, in the form "key=value" as specified in TracQuery#QueryLanguage.|
|startdate||mandatory parameter that specifies the start date of the period (ISO8601 format)|
|enddate||end date of the period. If omitted, it defaults to either the milestones (if given) completed' date, or due` date, or today (in that order) (ISO8601 format)|
|weekends||include weekends in chart.||true|
|title||chart title.||first milestone or 'Burndown Chart'|
|expected||show expected progress in chart, 0 or any number to define initial expected hours||0|
|gridlines||show gridlines in chart, 0 or any number to define hour steps||0)|
|width||width of resulting diagram||800)|
|height||height of resulting diagram||200)|
|color||color specified as 6-letter string of hexadecimal values in the format RRGGBB.||ff9900, a nice orange.|
|colorexpected||color for expected hours graph specified as 6-letter string of hexadecimal values in the format RRGGBB.||ffddaa, a nice yellow.|
|bgcolor||chart drawing area background color specified as 6-letter string of hexadecimal values in the format RRGGBB.||ffffff.|
|wecolor||chart drawing area background color for weekends specified as 6-letter string of hexadecimal values in the format RRGGBB.||ccccccaa.|
[[BurndownChart(milestone=Sprint 1, startdate=2008-01-01)]] [[BurndownChart(milestone=Release 3.0|Sprint 1, startdate=2008-01-01, enddate=2008-01-15, weekends=false, expected=100, gridlines=20, width=600, height=100, color=0000ff)]]
Calculates remaining estimated hours for the queried tickets.
The macro accepts a comma-separated list of query parameters for the ticket selection, in the form "key=value" as specified in TracQuery#QueryLanguage. Example:
Creates workload chart for the selected tickets.
This macro creates a pie chart that shows the remaining estimated workload per ticket owner, and the remaining work days.
Supports the following parameters:
- a comma-separated list of query parameters for the ticket selection, in the form "key=value" as specified in TracQuery#QueryLanguage.
- width: width of resulting diagram (defaults to 400)
- height: height of resulting diagram (defaults to 100)
- color: color specified as 6-letter string of hexadecimal values in the format RRGGBB. Defaults to ff9900, a nice orange.
[[WorkloadChart(milestone=Sprint 1)]] [[WorkloadChart(milestone=Sprint 1, width=600, height=100, color=00ff00)]]
This component allows to edit the remaining hours field directly in the custom query view as well as in the report view.
- to show the remaining hours in the custom query view, you have to enable the corresponding column
- if you want to show the remaining hours column in your SQL reports, you need to join the ticket table with the ticket_custom table, which contains the custom fields.
SELECT ... # normal SELECT statement id AS ticket, COALESCE(tc.value,'') as estimatedhours, # adds the value of estimatedhours in a column that must have same name original field FROM ticket t LEFT JOIN ... # other LEFT JOIN statements (in the default Trac queries) can be left in place LEFT JOIN ticket_custom tc ON tc.ticket = t.id and tc.name = 'estimatedhours' ...
- You could change '' to '0' to show 0 hours for tickets that don't have a corresponding estimated hours field.
- Tickets may have an estimated hours field that is empty, in which case you may still see "blank"
- See #4549 for a more complex example
- Trac 0.11.x and Trac 0.12.x is supported in trunk.
- The latest version for Trac 0.10 can be checked out here.
- Manually: Deploy the egg:
$ python setup.py bdist_egg $ cp dist/*.egg /path/to/trac/env/plugins
$ easy_install https://trac-hacks.org/svn/estimationtoolsplugin/trunk/
- Add a custom field into 'trac.ini' file to store the estimations for the current remaining effort, as follows:
[ticket-custom] estimatedhours = text estimatedhours.label = Remaining Hours estimatedhours.value = 0
- Enable the plugin by updating TracIni file (..../trac.ini) as follows:
[components] estimationtools.* = enabled
- Configure the plugin at its own configuration section, placed into 'trac.ini' file as follows:
[estimation-tools] # if you want to use another field than estimatedhours you can change that estimation_field = estimatedhours # Set to a comma separated list of workflow states # that count as zero in BurnDownChart. Defaults to 'closed' closed_states = closed,another_state # Suffix used for estimations. Defaults to 'h' estimation_suffix = points # If you want charts to be served from the server set to true. Useful for SSL connections. Default 'false' serverside_charts = false
- Restart web server on command line:
$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
The charts use Google's Chart API, hence no additional python modules are required.
Still in doubt? Please see Trac's plug-in installation instructions for more details.
If you have any issues, create a new ticket.

Enforce a minimum Trac version in setup.py. Refs trac:#11388.
The method disable_component in trac.core:ComponentManager, which is utilized by this plugin in estimationtools.utils, is only available since Trac 0.11.3 (see trac:#7748, [trac 7719]). Thanks to Jun Omae for the hint.

Fixes #10279: (0.4.6) FIX: Charts were not rendering in some cases because an invalid certificate error was reported from. chart.apis.google.com. Changed the URL to chart.googleapis.com. Thanks to Erik Andersson for pointing out the fix.
