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.
