task management software used on

Project description

TaskTracker is an application for managing and organizing tasks for groups of people.

It was written at The Open Planning Project for integration with OpenCore, on the community action site

Installation and Setup

Currently TaskTracker only runs on Python2.4

Install TaskTracker in a contained environment using easy_install:

virtualenv --python=python2.4 /tmp/tt/ve
source /tmp/tt/ve/bin/activate
cd /tmp/tt
easy_install -e -b . TaskTracker
cd tasktracker
python develop

Make a config file:

cp development.example development.ini

Tweak the config file as appropriate. Things you may want to change:

  • sqlobject.dburi, database – these are set to use a mysql db; you may want to change them to sqlite to try it out.

  • openplans_wrapper – set this to tasktracker.lib.testing_env:TestingEnv unless you are integrating with an OpenCore instance.

    The TestingEnv will allow you to log in with any username/password combination using HTTP Basic Auth. Log in as user admin to have all privileges (for creating new task lists, etc)

Then setup the application:

paster setup-app development.ini#tasktracker

Then you are ready to go:

paster serve development.ini



The tasklist update form now works. Previously it would reject all submissions, because the authenticator form field used for XSRF protection was missing from the form served to the user (and therefore missing from the form submission) so tasktracker’s secure_forms rejected all submissions. This has been fixed: the authenticator was being stripped out of the response by formencode.htmlfill which did not recognize it as part of the schema. Passing parameter force_defaults=False to formencode.htmlfill.render solves the problem.
