Introducing the first beta release of SingleBugs, the bug tracker aimed at single/solo developers. Are you a solo developer? Do you find setting up Mantis/Fogbugs/Bugs.net/et.al too complex and a waste of your time? Do you want a single solution that easily syncs and backs up between your machines? Try SingleBugs.
Guaranteed to save you time and money setting up a bug tracker. Guaranteed to be the fastest bug tracker you have ever used.
No set-up required. Simple backups. Instant searching. Easily exportable.
With the marketing spiel over give it a shot. Currently only available for Windows x64 and Linux x64. Download the demo below and give it a shot.
Ignore the demo though, get the full version at Github https://github.com/boyter/SingleBugs/
This serves as the announcement of my new bug tracker product I am working on.
My needs are pretty specific and none of the existing bug trackers I have tried have meet the following goals.
- Speed. Searching, adding projects/issues/comments should be instant. Any time waiting on the bug tracker is wasted time.
- Outlook style view of projects/issues/comments. This should allow me to get an overview of how I am tracking.
- Not require me to spin up a full web-server. I don’t want to have to install a full stack web-server just to track bugs.
- Sync across all devices. I want it to just appear on every device I own without me having to worry about backups or keeping things in sync.
- Be single user. I don’t want to have to login or perform user management.
- Support multiple projects. I also want to be able to have multiple issues per project.
With that in mind let me introduce the Fizzbuzz Bug Tracker. Fizzbuzz is a single executable that works on Windows, Linux and OSX (once I have a machine to compile it on). A suggested workflow is to copy it onto your Dropbox folder (or equivalent) where it will be synced across all devices. Fizzbuzz has a strong emphasis on speed. Adding projects or issues, searching across projects and issues, drilling into projects or issues is near instant.
Fizzbuzz spins up its own web-server running on whatever port you choose (defaults to 8080) allowing you to use it without installing any additional software. Fizzbuzz has no user login’s so getting started is very fast.
Interested? Let me know. Its getting very close to having a public release at which point I will probably choose a real name for it. If you would like to get access sooner rather then later email me or bitmessage me (details on the right bar and about page).
