Description

I don't like project names like "Redmine SCM Creator"!.. But the name just "SCM Creator" is not clear! So I'm thinking about writing the plugin which meets the following requirements:
  1. The section name is prepended to the project name in the header (with some delimiter; clicking on section gives list of projects in it).
  2. The section URL is: /sections/<id>
  3. A section has:
    • identifier (like project)
    • Name (shown in header)
    • Short description
  4. Section names (with projects or alone) should be shown in the right side of the header (where projects combo is located).
  5. The projects listing page should be able to show sections (maybe supporting position).
  6. Project URLs should contain section e.g. /projects/<section>/<project>.
  7. That’s it currently...

Would this also allow “split” project into their categories on the `/projects` page?

#2 Updated by Andriy Lesyuk about 9 years ago

It can do anything!.. Because currently it’s only an idea!

I see this as a combo at the top (near “New project” etc) allowing to show either “All” or some category (on my site it will be e.g. “Redmine”). Is this what you meant?

What I really would like is to be able to categorize the projects into groups and have a choice on the order of the project categories.

For example, I just migrated a bunch of Trac plugins into my ChiliProject install. For these plugins, support has stopped, so, I’d like to make this projects “fit” into the “Dead Projects” category. This category would come after the “Active” projects, etc...

Got an idea of what I’m after?

Yes, thanks!

The one of the main tasks is ensuring that all the plugins work well with ChilliProject. If/when they do the names are to be changed from “Redmine <Plugin>” into “Redmine/ChilliProject <Plugin>”. So this feature becomes more critical...

Also it would be great if URLs looked so: {host}/projects/{section}/{project} e.g. projects.andriylesyuk.com/projects/redmine/scm-creator...

#9 Updated by Andriy Lesyuk over 8 years ago

Project section should have their own custom fields. Saying we have sections “Jabberd14 Modules” and “Redmine Plugins”... Custom fields “Jabberd Version” and “Redmine Version” should not be used for projects in both sections!..

Good news: I have started working on the plugin! The work will continue in Project Sections.
