Work Log Plugin for Trac

Description

This is a plugin that adds a Work Log capability to Trac.

Basically, it allows you to register the fact you have started work on a ticket which effectively allows you to clock on and clock off.

It uses javascript to add a button to the ticket page to allow you to start/stop working on a given ticket.

If the TimingAndEstimationPlugin is installed then when you clock off, the time spent on the ticket will be recorded (NOT YET IMPLEMENTED)

If you visit the Work Log page (a new navigation entry), you will see a list of people (developers) and which tickets they are currently working on. Work log events are also logged to the Timeline for a historical view.

This is very early days and there are no doubt bugs due to lack of error checking!

TODO

  • XMLRPC Extension point
  • Automatic addition of hours to the ticket (integration with TimingAndEstimationPlugin)
  • Leave comments on tickets when starting/stopping work (optional + integrated with above for stopping)
  • Ajax based popup reminders when viewing Trac (keeps you informed)
  • Develop Companion Desktop Application as per #1667
  • Add a Developer Work Profile to graphically show how "utilised" a developer is! Root out the lazy!

Installation

  1. Install the plugin, see details here.

    • Alternatively, this can be enabled in the Web Admin section of the website as well
  3. Run $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv upgrade
    • You should get a message like this:
      Work Log needs an upgrade
      Upgrading Database
      Creating work_log table
      Upgrading usermanual
      Done upgrading Work Log

  4. Reload/restart your HTTPD / other webserver / Tracd. That's it.
