Redmine, a free project management web application

Redmine is a free, open source project management/bug tracking web application similar to JIRA. The difference is that redmine is built using Ruby on Rails and ofcourse it is free. Redmine has not reached its maturity yet in order to be used for enterprise applications like therap but it works fine for small projects. Since it is built using RoR a few configuration needs to be done before being able to use it.

Some of the main features of Redmine are:
* Multiple projects support
* Flexible role based access control.
* Flexible issue tracking system
* Gantt chart and calendar
* News, documents & files management
* Feeds & email notifications.
* Per project wiki
* Per project forums
* Simple time tracking functionality
* Custom fields for issues, projects and users
* SCM integration (SVN, CVS, Git, Mercurial, Bazaar and Darcs)
* Multiple LDAP authentication support
* User self-registration support
* Multilanguage support

  1. Yeah, we’ve been using redmine in hottMedia for about a year now, and it’s been serving us well. I also installed a few plugins for features like timesheet reports. I’m actually writing a plugin for it to serve a few other specific needs the company has – in particular budgeting and costing.

  2. This is an impressive entry. Thank you very much for the outstanding post provided! I was looking for this entry for a long time, but I wasnt able to find a trusted source.

    • We have been using redmine in our company for quite some time now and it has been an asset for us. It is also customizable which means that it can be configured to suite the need of the project since it is open source.
