It’s been a while since I last wrote about Bugdar2 development, so I thought I’d post an update.
Over this summer, I managed to get a lot of work done for Bugdar2 and started working through the roadmap to the Alpha 1 milestone. The purpose of the Alpha 1 milestone was to do as much of the core backend as possible, without writing much templated UI. While I did end up writing some skeleton templates to test basic functionality, most of the backend work was tested through unit tests.
When I got to the point where I couldn’t do much more backend work without having interfaces to add and modify data, Alpha 1 was complete. The goal of the next milestone Alpha 2, which I’m currently working, is to get the basic UI shell up. I’ve started building the CRUD templates for entities like bugs, settings, usergroups, and attributes. In this milestone, the initial look and feel will come together and a round of string extraction (the first step towards localization) will occur.
Here’s two screen shots of Bugdar2 as it currently exists. These are very rudimentary and will evolve as more time is put into them.
Is this project dead?
Nope. It’s just moving at glacial pace because I have a full-time job writing software.
