Minimum Viable Product
ProjectTracker is a clone of Basecamp built on Rails and Backbone. Users can:
- [x] Create accounts
- [x] Create sessions (log in)
- [x] Create projects
- [x] Edit project descriptions without forms
- [x] Tag other users to projects with search form
- [x] Assign members to tasks with drop and drop
- [x] Sort projects based on owner/tagged
- [x] Upload images in projects
- [x] Create tasks in projects
- [x] List all assigned tasks in a personal to-do list
- [x] Create comment threads in tasks
Phase 1: User Authentication, Project creation (1 days)
I will implement user authentication in Rails based on the practices learned at App Academy. By the end of this phase, users will be able to create projects using a simple text form in a Rails view. The most important part of this phase will be pushing the app to Heroku and ensuring that everything works before moving on to phase 2.
Phase 2: Project CRUD (~2 days)
The primary feature of Basecamp Clone is to interact with projects. I will finish the server side CRUD operations for projects. Once my projecs table is setup, I will add API routes to serve project data as JSON, then add Backbone models and collections that fetch data from those routes.
Phase 3: Implementing Tasks (~2 days)
Once the users can create, search, tag and subscribe to projects, I want to add tasks to each project so users other than the project author can contribute to a project. By the end of this phase, all projects will have a Task feature which allows anyone involved in the project to create/update a new Task associated with the project.
Phase 4: Implementing Comments (~2 days)
For each task, I will add a section that allows users in the project to discuss and leave comments for one another.
Phase 5: Uploading Pictures (~1 days)
Once I have a usable project coordination app, I will try to allow users to upload pictures. At first, I will have it only be posted to whole projects, but eventually, have the feature be allowed in tasks and maybe even comments as well. I will have to use Amazon Ruby SDK to store images on S3.
