A-responsive-1: Responsive theme for Redmine - Alpha release

Published on June 6, 2014, 7:35 a.m.

A few weeks ago, I told you we were working on a responsive theme for Redmine without giving any release date....
Well, here we are: alpha has been released and is available here.

This theme is loosely inspired by A1 and built upon Bootstrap Sass mixins.
This project is still in its alpha stage and you can read all about why we created it and what is supported so far on its homepage.

When we first decided to use Redmine in a larger-scale project, we needed it to be responsive, so we started looking for a responsive redmine theme but found none that worked or that was truly responsive. So we decided to build our own.

Here is a (non-exhaustive) list of features:

  • Fluid grid design
  • Collapsible top menu
  • Expandable one-line main menu
  • Sidebar slides to the right of the screen on smaller devices and can be slided over the main content if needed
  • Responsive tables

The importance of a good project management tool

Last week, we told you about building a truly responsive Redmine theme (which is currently in testing) and we cannot mention Redmine without speaking of the importance of using a good project management tool.

There are only a few free open-source web-based project management software worth mentionning:

Redmine is by far my favourite.
Trac had its glory days but it requires a different intallation for each project (multi-projects is supposed to be supported using a multitude of hacks) and its configuration is far from being user-friendly.
Project | Pier has a nice modern interface with nice features and is a promissing project but today it lacks the addons collection available on Redmine.

Hello every one.
We have been very quiet for the past few weeks and we know we are late concerning the release of Ls4c and our next tutorial. But we do have a very good excuse: we have been very busy working on a very interesting project. And as part of that same project we will soon (we've learned from our past mistakes and we don't give dates anymore) a new Redmine theme.
