Tracks is a web-based project management application that's based on a Ruby on Rails framework. The design of Tracks is significantly influenced by a "getting things done" methodology, introduced by author David Allen, and the GTD Todo application. That methodology was introduced to the application in the form of three main components: next actions, contexts, and projects.
Main features of Tracks include:
- built-in Mongrel web server
- action and project management
- tagging and starring actions
- color coding of due dates
- multi-user support
- comprehensive statistics tools
- text, iCal and RSS feed support
- export data in YAML, CSV or XML format
Requirements for this software to run properly include:
2. Ruby 1.8.7, RubyGems 1.3.7 or 1.5.0, Rake (see below)
More specifics on installation of Ruby, RubyGems, etc. can be found here.
