Redmine-Mylyn-Connector

Added by Hauke Ingmar Schmidt almost 5 years ago

Hej,
it looks like the Redmine-Mylyn-Connector project is quite dead ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/redmin-mylyncon/ ).

For me the IDE integration is quite essential, giving me a huge productivity boost. So is there another way to connect Eclipse/Mylyn and Redmine? There was a generic Mylyn web connector aeons ago which seemed to be the first method to connect these. But this is non-existing any more.

Thank you.

Redmine-Mylyn-Connector was the best I knew :(
I also can not imagine (from the developers point of view) using Redmine without Eclipse+Mylyn.

Redmine is awesome but connecting bugs and tasks with my task list and code is a key issue.

Sad to say, but this connector was the most important factor in my decision about switching to Redmine.

RE: Redmine-Mylyn-Connector - Added by Hauke Ingmar Schmidt almost 5 years ago

Funny... for me this connector was the main risk when deciding pro Redmine... just because it looked like a unstable one-person project that was not part of the official Mylyn release. A risk that has realized now. The availability of the generic web connector (which was like a configurable html scraper) reduced the risk to a level acceptable for me. Too bad both failed.

Currently I am working with Trac, but it is lacking a lot of the usability of Redmine :-(. I want to switch back but not at the cost of losing IDE integration.

If you're interested, there's an old bug open for that in the Eclipse Bugzilla.
You are all welcome to vote for it.

I'm not sure it will help. These bugs usually don't get handled unless somebody has a clear interest. Perhaps as a part of SoC.

I tested the new release and it works just fine with 0.9.1 (still didn't update my server to 0.9.2).

Just for the record, it doesn't look that dead anymore - it actually works for me:

I's active ..my bug reports got fixed 4 weeks ago. Sven tries to keep it up.

RE: Redmine-Mylyn-Connector - Added by Lola Lee Beno about 3 years ago

Unfortunately the binaries are no longer available since some idiot decided to report Sven to Sourceforge for not including the source code. If someone can step up to the plate and offer space for an update site that can be accessed via Eclipse, that would be great for those of us who aren't java programmers.

RE: Redmine-Mylyn-Connector - Added by Tommaso Visconti about 3 years ago

I've just sent a patch to sven to let the plugin work with Redmine 1.3.0 (see https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3459347&group_id=228995&atid=1075435)

Project takeover - Added by Oliver Kopp over 2 years ago

The web site states: "As of 2012-04-15, this project is no longer under active development."

It also states that if someone wants to take over, the should contact Sven.

Maybe someone wants to keep it going?

RE: Redmine-Mylyn-Connector - Added by Terence Mill over 2 years ago

The Eclipse plugin is available again as Eclipse Update site, but the redmine plugin is not - only "as source" repository

That is new to me. I think the first step is to move that code to github.

RE: Redmine-Mylyn-Connector - Added by Daniel Munn over 2 years ago

There is also a repo at https://github.com/danmunn/redmine_mylyn_connector.git - although this code base has been tinkered with to ensure the plugin runs with Redmine 2.0

Try:

git clone git://redmin-mylyncon.git.sourceforge.net/redmin-mylyncon/redmine-mylyn-connector

RE: Redmine-Mylyn-Connector - Added by Daniel Migowski over 1 year ago

The correct way would be:

git clone git://redmin-mylyncon.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/redmin-mylyncon/redmine-mylyn-connector

RE: Redmine-Mylyn-Connector - Added by Terence Mill over 1 year ago

What is the leading repo for redmind 2 versions at the end? I am confused!

The github repo seems to get stale, no commits since a log time.
Anre there any active devlopers on this plugin?

RE: Redmine-Mylyn-Connector - Added by Daniel Migowski over 1 year ago

We finally used the git://github.com/danmunn/redmine_mylyn_connector.git now and it worked with the current Redmine version, but I konfigured something wrong before so I don't know if the other version would have worked also.

RE: Redmine-Mylyn-Connector - Added by Charlie Mordant over 1 year ago

Hum...
This plugin works very well with the latest Redmine & Eclipse Kepler (I run it for about two years without any modification).
Guthub repo maybe seems stale because there's nothing to add or do on it.

Maybe someone can update the plugin section of Redmine wiki to add it? I don't remember ow I installed it, same for redmine mylyn Eclipse connector (this post shows the client URL, wich I didn't found anywhere else: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/498426/mylyn-redmine-integration)

Regards

RE: Redmine-Mylyn-Connector - Added by Terence Mill over 1 year ago

So to summ it up

  1. Get the Redmine Plugin from here: https://github.com/danmunn/redmine_mylyn_connector.git
  2. Get the Eclipse Plugin from there: http://redmin-mylyncon.sourceforge.net/update-site/N/

OMG .. where is it hosted at the end? On stackoverflow....#+#(!*
