Redmine Project Scores Plugin

Redmine Project Scores

In a previous post, I setup custom data with Redmine to track specific criteria with my development projects. Since then I have written a plugin to make tracking scores easier. Like my other plugin, I’m releasing this under the GNU GPL v2.

Alpha Release

Unlike my other plugin, this one will be undergoing some major changes soon so it should not be used on a production system. I’m releasing it early to get some feedback for the next release, which should be production ready. If you could help send some code or suggestions, please visit my bug tracker.


This plugin will let a user score a project on different criteria. I use it to score my consulting projects and pick the ones that are the best fix for my business.

  • Projects can be scored based on user defined values
  • Score groups can be setup to rank a project in different areas (e.g. Profitability, Fun)
  • Total score for a project is calculated
  1. Download the archive file and extract it to your vendor/plugins folder. You can also download directly from my Subversion server using Rails’s plungin script
      script/plugin install svn://

Or the very latest copy:

     script/plugin install svn://
  1. Follow the Redmine plugin installation steps.
  2. Setup the databases using the migrations.
      rake db:migrate_plugins
  3. Login to your Redmine install as an Administrator
  4. Enable the “Score Module” permissions for your Roles
  5. Add the “Score module” to the enabled modules for your project
  6. The link to the plugin should appear on that project’s navigation

The database setup includes some default data, feel free to change it or add your own using the Rails console.
