What's going on?

Well, I have been submitting patches for the Windows compilation. We are almost there. Jani Tiainen has also submited a patch to allow the application to run from any directory, so that will help as well.

Aside from that, I have also:
  • MS Project 98 MPP import: working on a plugin to import MS Project 98 files. Working but needs a little more work
  • SQL support: Jani and I have have been experimenting with the SQL support available on the Linux distros. It mostly works but there are some issues like resave problems and only PostgreSQL.
I will keep you posted.

Dear Francisco,

I am impressed by your work, but more than that, I am so happy!! I am looking for the development of a MS Project competitor on Linux and windows platform for so long already. I wish you good luck, inspiration and all the best!

Whats happening with win-planner?

Just wondering when you are going to add the microsoft compatability module?

MPP import/export would be great.

In terms of priority, I reckon export before import. That way, you can use Planner internally, but export in MPP if you have to show your plan to someone in another team still using MS Project. In the other direction, it is likely that your boss is using MS Project and you will have to too...

I'm testing it, good for my needs, and found a bug : today is ago 2, 2005, and it shows the week day QUA ( = wednesday). The correct would be TER (tuesday).
My language is Brazilian Portuguese, and windows XP says correctly that today is TER (tuesday).
Your program shows the week days in portuguese (I don't know why).

Congratulations, good job.

Been a while since done any Planner hacking. The Windows version looks nice and clean. Excellent port. All I have to do now is get back into my Planner hacking and work on some of the new features I'm thinking of. Will start more testing on Windows to help get it stable.

Hi,

Thanks to port planner on Windows !
I just have a problem with the HTML export. It simply does not work on my machine. I am using :

- Imendio Planner 0.13
- GTK+ 2.6.8-1 Runtime Environment

Any idea what's wrong ?

loic said...

It is not a big deal, it is maybe an easy thing to fix, I can not associate the executable planner.exe to .planner file extension.

Great tool and easy to use. Much easier than MS Project or Excel. I would like to print Resource Usage and HTML output seems not to work.

Scott Carr said...

There are some XSLT transforms you can use to get this working. If you need the tools, you can download them from http://scott.progbits.com/downloads/Planner2html_transform.zip

This uses libxml2, libxslt, and xsltproc to convert the Planner file to HTML.

Throw these files into a directory with your planner files, and run:

xsltproc -o {filename}.html planner2html.xsl {filename}.planner

Hope this helps somebody. BTW, the HTML export looks pretty good.

Planner for Windows looks good! Very nice work!
What I would need to use it is some way to use it collaboratively.
It would be nice that ressources get an email when they're assigned tasks. Then that they could update the percentage of completion of their tasks.
At least the ressource list should be available for every project and every project manager in the company.
Thanks,
-Marc

Thanks Cameron it works fine.
Hope this xslt could be included in planner soon, and then avoid this command line.

Thanks !

Dear Francisco,
I have been using the 0.13 and am quite a happy user.
Just one point, when I save it as html version, the file size is 0. So actually the save as html doesn't work on 0.13 on the windows version.
Sorry to tell that. :)

rgds,

Thanks for Windows Planner, it is great. The only problem is printing and HTML export - it does not work :(

Of course I can use xsltproc (well, I don't need as on my Linux print and export works fine), but an average windows user can not do it.

Kuba Nadolny said...

In newest version uploaded by Francisco (0.13-20060213) HTML export works just fine! Thanks a lot :)
