Best Cross Platform Bug Tracking Software

Post icon  Posted 04 January 2009 - 12:14 AM

Hey Everyone,

I'm looking for a really good cross- platform bug tracking software for a project and I'm not finding too many that are easy to use and manage. Any suggestions?

Ya exactly like those. But no offense to either but I found them extremely difficult to use and set up. I'm wondering if anyone knows anything simpler.

Do you want something hosted on a server, or that runs locally?

Preferably something that either I can host or that is already hosted as it needs to be able to be accessed from multiple locations.

Thank you, that is very good. However looking through the list I found 1 cross-platform that would not be a command line application. I'm wondering if anyone has heard of any that they have worked with?

Those are all hosted on a web server. You use them like you would a web page.

We tried Mantis, gave up on it and developed our own. Just released it as a cheap (or free) web app for everyone:

http://www.BugSherpa.com

Very simple. Very effective. Check it out - might be just what you're looking for on the hosted side.

Looks to be exactly what I'm looking for... unfortunately i'm looking for something free as I'm a university student working on an open-source project so money is tight. Nice app though... That's perfect! and PS. I love the Mac OS screenshots! Great to see

Hey. Here's one, and I can REALLY recommend it. http://www.thebuggenie.com/ Nice, and easy to use. It's 100% free, and comes in several languages.

Check out theKillingJar might be what you are looking for. We have a free version if you have less than three people on your project. The full version with all the bells and whistles is reasonable too... but it sounds like you are just looking for a free solution.
