Distributed, offline-first bug tracker embedded in git, with bridges
@abucci Yeah I’ve seen this nice tool before 😆 It’s qtute fascinating how it works 🤔
@abucci Wow, that’s really cool. How is the actual data stored?
@mckinley I think in the Git reflog or something? 🤔
@abucci @prologic @mckinley Some mates and I also started twice to build our own git based bugtracker several years ago. At the time there was nothing out there that really worked great. We failed to complete ours, because we wanted to have too many features and flexibility for small and large projects. So we ended up in the same useless state as all the other ones. I have to check this one out.
Interesting indeed. I’m curious why they didn’t chose a dedicated branch with regular files instead of working with Git objects directly. 🤔 Might be an interesting project for a gloomy weekend.
@abucci Right, hence a disconnected branch that you’d never interact with. 🤔 But really, no idea, I’ll have to take a closer look at the project first. 👌
Ah git-bug! Ive chatted with the creator when he was working on the graphql parts. Its working with git objects directly sorta like how git-repo does code reviews. Its a pretty neat idea for storing data along side the branches. I believe they don’t add a disconnected branch to avoid data getting corrupted by merging branches or something like that.
