I got tired of using spredsheats to manage our product backlog, tasks, sprints, printing story cards and manually update our burndown chart, so I created a simple scrum tool using U++.

We are using it in our work, so it is absolutely useful, but has a lot of missing features yet.

Sorry for the pure web page, it is absolutely in a starting phase currently.

Please, let me know your thoughts about the tool.


I have a question also: How to include the copyright notice of U++, PostgreSQL libraries, etc. in the software?

Should I put the whole Copying files to somewhere? Or is it enough to put a greeting into the (corrently not written) online help?

There are Linux versions available:

http://www.scrum-tool.com/dl/ScrumTool-Linux-Ubuntu904-GTK-0 .05.tar.gz
http://www.scrum-tool.com/dl/ScrumTool-Linux-Ubuntu904-NoGTK -0.05.tar.gz

These are built and tested on Ubuntu 9.04 (32 bit). They are tested and working on Fedora 11 as well.

Refreshed the Features section on the homepage also:
http://www.scrum-tool.com/

Comments, suggestions?

Hello zsolt

I do not have a Postgre database.

Could you include some screenshots to have an idea about how it works ?
Sorry for the poor feedback. Scrum, sprints, ... are new words for me.

Best regards

Hello Koldo,

Thanks for suggesting screenshots. We will create some better webpage with screenshots soon.

Scrum is a very lightweight project management approach used mainly in software and hardware development.

It has a special terminology, but it is very easy to learn and use. A good starting point would be the Scrum page in wikipedia.

And yes, maybe there are some need to a simpler database. Maybe sqlite?

I haven't checked the tool yet.
But this idea with scrum tool (and the scrum-tool.com) sounds promising business case:) with the high popularity of scrum.

Why was your db choice the PostgreSQL instead of for instance MySQL?

This scrum-tool.com is the result of my pure fantasy to find a good name for it Smile

Yes, I got a lot of comments on this MySQL topic, but the license fee of the MySQL library would be horrible compared to the planned price-level of this tool.

Thanks for your comments, I would be glad to get some opinion, suggestion regarding the sofware also.
