SweepBoard is getting sexier by the minute

Quentin Berder on

We’ve just released a new version of SweepBoard and we’re pretty psyched. Not only did we cleaned up a lot of our backlog of issues, but we added the multi-repositories support. We have some more coming, but let me walk you through what we’ve just pushed online:

  • Multi repository support: you can now create boards which can combine multiple GitHub repositories into a single Kanban board. This is particularly useful to manage large projects which often span over several repositories.
  • Realtime updates from GitHub: if you update things on GitHub, the changes will now immediately appear on SweepBoard. This means your team can independently update and categorize issues with or without SweepBoard; your boards will always be up to date.
  • Wizard: we added a wizard for new users to walk them through the main features of SweepBoard.
  • Pull request: we are now styling pull requests differently from regular issues.
  • Github events: we are now displaying GitHub events (label changes, assignments, etc.) in the issues threads.
  • We’ve had a bit of fun with our 404 page.

There are a lot more features coming in the next few weeks, including:

  • Milestone support: allowing you to manage GitHub milestones from SweepBoard. This will integrate with the multi-repos support, allowing you to sync milestones across multiple repositories.
  • Analytics: you will be able to access various metrics related to your projects; activity, cycle time, contributors stats, etc.
  • Stable enterprise version: you’ll be able to run SweepBoard on premises. Shoot us an email at [email protected] if you’re interested in becoming a beta tester.
  • And much more.

Happy kanban-ing!
