BugKick – Open Source Bug Tracking App

BugKick is an open source bug tracking and task management application (source is hosted on GitHub) that is “light” in means of features (which i sometimes nice).

It is built with PHP-MySQL and allows teams to define projects, add tasks to them (which can be tagged with anything like “bug” or “feature request”) and assign to teammates.

Discussions under each task is possible, status updates about each of them are delivered via e-mail and closed ones are not deleted but kept.

There is an API for integrating it into our own apps and a JavaScript snippet + a contact form helps users to submit bugs too.

Kimai – Open Source Time Tracking Web App

Those days nearly all project management applications can calculate the time that is being worked on projects to use them in various reports. If you are not using such a project management system and looking for a simpler solution just to track time, Kimai can be a good alternative.

It is a PHP-powered, open source web application that enables us to define projects/tasks and record the time we work on each item.

Kimai - PHP Time Tracker

Although it is web-based, the timer keeps working even if the browser is closed unless it is stopped. After collecting the data, it can generate a report of your activities on demand (yearly, monthly, daily, by customer/project/action).

The application stores the data in a MySQL database and it has a multilingual interface.
