Taskwiki extends Mylyn’s task editor to provide wiki integration. It supports offline rich text editing with syntax highlight, auto-complete, structure outline and rich text preview. The basic mechanism behind Taskwiki is a source code parser that renders the wiki syntax into HTML. Inputted with wiki code and an URL of the wiki system, the parser elegantly translates them into HTML before they are posted to the issue tracking systems. When displayed, any internal links of the bug reports will be directed to correspondent wiki systems.


Considering the size of this project, it will be separated into several milestones. Detail workloads are as followed:

MUST: Adjusted wiki-to-HTML parser [20 hours]

MUST: Rich text integration [50 hours]

MUST: Rich text preview [20-30 hours]

MUST: Structure outline [20 hours]

HIGH: Auto-complete [40 hours]

MID: Syntax highlights [30 hours]

LOW: Code format [20 hours]

LOW: Spell checking [20 hours]

Projected time to meet goals:

MUST: 110-120 hours

HIGH: 40 hours

MID: 30 hours

LOW: 40 hours

Expected time commitment available: 200 hours, from May 26 - August 1 (preparation hours not included).


In this project, agile development process will be used. Workloads are projected into 7 small iterations.

M1: Adjusted wiki-to-HTML parser [May 26 - May 30]

M2: Rich text integration [June 2 - June 13]

M3: Rich text preview [June 16 - June 23]

M4: Structure outline [June 24 - June 30]

M5: Auto-complete [July 1 - July 12]

M6: Syntax highlights [July 14 - July 21]

M7: Code format & Spell checking [July 22 - August 1]
