Introduction to Phabricator at Wikimedia Hackathon

20. Mai 2017 um 09:44 13 Kommentare

This weekend I participate at Wikimedia Hackathon in Vienna. I mostly contribute to Wikidata related events and practice the phrase "long time no see", but I also look into some introductionary talks.

In the late afternoon of day one I attended an introduction to Phabricator project management tool given by André Klapper. Phabricator was introduced in Wikimedia Foundation about three years ago to replace and unify Bugzilla and several other management tools.

Phabricator is much more than an issue tracker for software projects (although it is mainly used for this purpose by Wikimedia developers). In summary there are tasks, projects, and teams. Tasks can be tagged, assigned, followed,discussed, and organized with milestones and workboards. The latter are Kanban-boards like those I know from Trello, waffle, and GitHub project boards.

Phabricator is Open Source so you can self-host it and add your own user management without having to pay for each new user and feature (I am looking at you, JIRA). Internally I would like to use Phabricator but for fully open projects I don’t see enough benefit compared to using GitHub.

P.S.: Wikimedia Hackathon is also organized with Phabricator. There is also a task for blogging about the event.
