Quozl's Open Source


Project management software for those who think best in a text editor, rather than a point and click interface. TaskJuggler seems to do quite nicely. One defines a set of tasks, even a hierarchy of them, and then hit the schedule button and you get a nice Gantt chart or as much XML or HTML as you want.

Because the project is expressed as text, it is easy to integrate it with project source control systems. TaskJuggler can run in a script to update a project web page. It will even generate its own Makefile if you want.

Keep it in mind for next time you need to plan something.
