Issue tracking and collaboration with WebIssues

Bug Hunting

Article from Issue 146/2013

The WebIssues tool offers more than just bug tracking; it can help you manage complex multiuser projects as well.

Developing software is unthinkable without a proper tool for handling bugs, and plenty of open source issue tracking applications are at your disposal. You can opt for a no-frills solution like Tiny !ssue or choose something more powerful like the Mantis bug tracker. But, if you are looking for an application that can be used not only for issue tracking, but also collaboration, then you might want to give WebIssues a try.

Like many popular bug tracking applications, WebIssues runs on the Apache/ MySQL/ PHP stack (it supports other servers and database engines, too), and the application’s web-based interface can be used to administer the server as well as manage projects via a browser. However, you can also use a dedicated client available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows to access and use WebIssues from the convenience of your desktop.
