Introduction to Forger

The majority of the work in the TYPO3 project is managed via a tool called Forger_, which acts as a read-only view on issues and reviews.

Forger performs several tasks, including:

  1. Provides an extensive search over issues on Forge_, available via the search box found on the start page and in the top right corner.
  2. Visualize the current development with a lot of useful graphs. You can learn more about the graphs here.
  3. Show and filter reviews incl. filters to easily find things to review. Check out the Reviews menu.
  4. Offer a variety of Kanban-style boards both for issues and reviews. Take a look at the Sprints menu, for example Sprints: Reviews: Bugfixes. Note: this is a great way to follow the current development. Just put up any board on a huge screen and use an auto-reload plugin in your browser.
  5. Supply an Issue Management view to show issues aggregated by year, month and status, based on the last time they were updated.
  6. A rst file generator which is useful when you add documentation snippets to a review.
