Welcome to YakTrack!
Welcome to YakTrack, a lightweight, open-source issue-tracking
database system written in Python. Begun as a project for
my Masters' in Software Development and Management via
Rochester Institute of Technology, YakTrack has grown
into a tool of some utility. From this page, you can visit the
YakTrack Sourceforge project page itself, browse its online documentation, or
examine the sample database. Enjoy, and if
you have any suggestions, please feel free to list them!
YakTrack is available from the YakTrack Sourceforge project page
at http://sourceforge.net/projects/yaktrack under "Latest File Releases" as a .tar.gz file.
into a directory and examine the structure; the
"src" directory holds the main executable files and python source code.
The documentation for YakTrack is available on-line, in
HTML form from the original DocBook SGML source. To
go to the main set of YakTrack documentation, click
here. An automatically-generated
set of documentation about the python code itself is present
some of the automatic hyperlink generation seems to be failing
(Crystal, the program which generated this documentation based
on docstrings in the Python code, is still somewhat new). As a result,
browsing the index is a little confusing, but still contains
some good information. If you want information on a module,
go to the "api.modulename.html" page for that particular modulename,
and you may get better service.
In order that you can see what YakTrack does, I've prepared a demonstration
Feel free to look around, examine reports, etc. Please don't edit others' reports, as the "defect" category is actually used for reporting defects in YakTrack-- but feel free to add reports, create your own issue templates, etc.
