Project Pier & Kamp Pro 2 on GitHub

I’m working with and on the Project Pier project management software again.

A colleague who was working as a project manager recently left Tactica, and I saw this as an opportunity to do more project management myself, which is what I’m always looking for opportunities for.

This week was really exciting for my project management efforts, but it also means I have to play a little bit of catch up with the development projects at work, since the project management work I do takes away time from development.

You can check out my GitHub fork of Project Pier to follow my development or get the latest version to use it for your project management needs. If you find a bug or have an idea for how to make the system better, I’d love to hear about it, and if I feel it would make the system better for me, it’s likely I will have a patch for it shortly.

For my needs, the part of project pier needing most attention is the UI. The architecture seems solid, and the project management paradigm is quite close to the one Basecamp implements.

To address the UI issues without forcing my ideas into the core, I’ve enabled the themes to overwrite any output of the system (HTML & Javascript), whereas they were only able to overwrite CSS & images before. You can follow my UI changes on my GitHub repository of the Kamp Pro 2 theme developed by the talented Andrew Dotson.
