open source project management tool compatible with MSProject

( categories: )

Looks Good

Name: ProjectLibre


License: Common Public Attribution License

Description: ProjectLibre ProjectLibre project management software emulates Microsoft Project and complements LibreOffice to provide a full collection of tools for the team manager. It maintains a list of tasks and then tracks when they're marked as completed. It’s meant to be a drop-in replacement, so open source teams can check things off their lists, too.

My one (and only) question -

My one (and only) question - does it accept durations less than 1 day?

The one thing that I haven't been able to find in a full-features open source project management solution is the ability to enter eg. 0.1 for a duration and having the task take up 1 hour.

I currently use Gantt Project (which doesn't support durations less than 1 day) but if this has hour durations I will definitely take a look at it.

It's not a bug, its a feature.

ProjectLibre can have task durations less than one day

Yes, ProjectLibre can have task durations less than one day. See the video here:
Around minute 10, you will see task durations of 2 hours and 0.5 day being added.


One of the low-rated reviews

One of the low-rated reviews on sourceforge seems to indicate that it is reliant on a local install of java, and not working with OpenJDK.
That would affect its portability somewhat.

If at first you do not succeed, use more sticky tape.

I'll look at it

I'll take a look at it. Give me a few days.

Any progress on ProjectLibre?

ProjectLibre would be a great addition PortableApps and to LibreOffice if it could interoperate. Has there been any progress on including ProjectLibre in PortableApps. There was a some work a few months ago but then the project seems to have hit a wall.

coming, no eta

It's on my radar, but I haven't had a chance to work on it yet.

coming, but when ?

I've entered it at January this year. when will the radar recognize it?

I second that.

I second that.
