To install the jicagile package.
pip install jicagile
Or install it from source.
git clone https://github.com/JIC-CSB/jicagile.git cd jicagile python setup.py install
The package comes with a command line utility named
When you run the
agl command it assumes that you are in
a directory where you want to store your agile project management
agl tool comes with built-in Git integration. To enable
this simply initialise the project directory as a git repository.
The step above is optional, but highly recommended. Git is great.
Now let's illustrate how to add a task to our agile project.
The command below creates a task with the title
"Learn how to use agl cmd line" of size 3. The available
story point sizes are 1, 3, 5 and 8.
agl add "Learn how to use agl cmd line" 3
This will create a
backlog directory and place a file named
learn-how-to-use-agl-cmd-line.yml file in it. It will also
create the directories
To move the task to the current sprint.
agl mv backlog/learn-how-to-use-agl-cmd-line.yml current/todo
To mark the task as done.
agl mv current/todo/learn-how-to-use-agl-cmd-line.yml current/done
To add a task to the current "todo" list one can use the
agl add -c "Email friends about jicagile" 1
To list the content of the backlog.
agl list backlog/
done directories have aliases so you do not need to
specify the full path to list their content.
agl list todo agl list done
You can edit tasks using your favorite text editor or you can use the
agl edit command. For example the command below increases the number
of story points from one to five.
agl edit current/todo/email-friends-about-jicagile.yml --storypoints=5
You can add themes to your project.
agl theme add admin "Emails, forms, meetings, etc" agl edit current/todo/email-friends-about-jicagile.yml --theme=admin
Themes are stored in a
It is also possible to add team members to your project.
agl teammember add TO Tjelvar Olsson agl teammember add MH Matthew Hartley
Team members are stored in a
You can then associate a task with a primary contact.
agl add "Write report" 8 -p MH -e admin
In the above
-p is the short hand for
-e is short hand for
Note that the
agl tool simply creates text files. It can be therefore be
used together with
git. In fact all of the commands above automatically
have Git integration built-in. It can be very satisfying to have the agile
project management files under version control on GitHub.
Once you have had your sprint review meeting and all the relevant
files have been moved to the
current/done directory create a
Then move and rename the
current/done directory there with
todays date using a year-month-day scheme.
agl mv current/todo past_sprints/2016-06-19
