Do you think we are missing an alternative of Lavagna or a related project?
Latest stable release is 1.1.6 (2020-04-01)
Lavagna is a small and easy to use issue/project tracking software.
It requires Java 8 or better and optionally a database: MySQL, MariaDB or PostgreSQL. It can be deployed in a Java servlet container or as a self contained war.
Lavagna supports MySQL (at least 5.1), MariaDB (tested on 10.1), PostgreSQL (tested on 9.1) and HSQLDB (for small deploy).
It's distributed in 2 forms:
- simple war for deploying in your preferred web container
- self contained war with embedded jetty web server
See the documentation at http://help.lavagna.io
For testing purposes
If you want to test it locally, you can download the self contained war and run:
wget https://repo1.maven.org/maven2/io/lavagna/lavagna/1.1.6/lavagna-1.1.6-distribution.zip unzip lavagna-1.1.6-distribution.zip ./lavagna-1.1.6/bin/lavagna.sh
Go to http://localhost:8080 and login with "user" (password "user").
See the README in the archive and the documentation at http://help.lavagna.io if you want to customize the scripts and set lavagna in production mode.
Lavagna is also available as a Docker image so you can try it on the fly:
Java and Kotlin
Lavagna runs on a Java 8 jvm. Some parts of Lavagna are made with Kotlin.
Use UTF-8 encoding and 120 characters as line width. You will need a Java and Kotlin aware IDE. (Currently tested with intellij and eclipse).
For eclipse: you will need to install the kotlin plugin and add the "Kotlin nature" to the project: Right click on the project -> "Configure Kotlin" -> "Add Kotlin nature"
Install npm and run the following script to assure your code follows our guidelines
First ensure that all the dependencies are ok with
Then, for checking:
npm run-script lint
Fix any error or warning before opening a pull request
Launch the Web Server:
For launching Web Server + DB manager (HSQLDB only):
mvn jetty:run -DstartDBManager
for launching Web Server with the MySQL database (use the mysql profile):
mvn jetty:run -Pdev-mysql
mvn jetty:run -Pdev-pgsql
enter username: user password: user
For running the test cases:
For running the test cases with MySQL or PostgreSQL:
mvn test -Ddatasource.dialect=MYSQL
mvn test -Ddatasource.dialect=PGSQL
For running with jetty-runner:
mvn clean install java -Ddatasource.dialect=HSQLDB -Ddatasource.url=jdbc:hsqldb:mem:lavagna -Ddatasource.username=sa -Ddatasource.password= -Dspring.profiles.active=dev -jar target/dependency/jetty-runner.jar --port 8080 target/*.war

The documentation is written using stampo (see https://github.com/digitalfondue/stampo). It currently reside in src/main/stampo .
For building the doc:
mvn clean stampo:build
The output will be present in target/generated-docs
For testing the documentation run
And go to http://localhost:45001/
In order to make it easier to tests on different databases we included 3 Vagrant VMs. Make sure that you have installed Vagrant and VirtualBox before continuing.
Fetch the submodules:
git submodule update --init
If you are under windows you need to ensure that the pgsql submodule is not in a broken state, double check that the file puppet\modules\postgresql\files\validate_postgresql_connection.sh is using the unix end of line (run dos2unix).
To run the tests with Vagrant boot the VMs with:
vagrant up [optionally use pgsql / mysql to boot only one VM]
Once that the VM is up and running run the tests:
mvn test -Ddatasource.dialect=PGSQL / MYSQL
PGSQL: localhost:5432/lavagna as postgres / password
MySQL: localhost:3306/lavagna as root
Notes about databases
The application uses UTF-8 at every stage and on MySQL you will need to create a database with the collation set to utf8_bin:
CREATE DATABASE lavagna CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_bin;
Jacoco plugin is used.
mvn clean test jacoco:report
-> open target/site/jacoco/index.html with your browser
About Database migration
Can be disabled using the following system property: datasource.disable.migration=true
