BugHub – For GitHub
By Randall Luecke
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
BugHub provides a native Mac interface to GitHub's issue tracker. BugHub is a full featured client that lets you create, comment, close, and manage your issues.
- Manage multiple repositories
- Create new issues
- Assigne issues to team members
- Add, remove, and create labels
- Set and create milestones
- Close and reopen issues
- Batch manipulation
- and much more
What's New in Version 1.0.1
- Private repos for organizations are now listed
- Fixed issue where logging in with an email address would show your repositories in read-only mode
- Fixed small UI bugs
Not using it (yet)
It's a good start, but there are things missing that the web interface does that I use everyday. You can't paste images directly into a comment and there's no preview for github markdown. I always preview my comments and without this ability, I can't use this app.
To the dev: good work so far! You've got a good thing going here and I don't regret supporting your work. I hope to use your app in the future! There's a few things needed (in addition to pasting images and allowing markdown preview):
1. Ability to collaps the issue list completely
2. Ability to manipulate the font-size/spacing/style of text in an issue. What I want in a native github issues app is the ability to see my issues how I want (like a good news reader).
Secondary things that'd I'd love to see
1. Sublime text 2/Alfred like global command palette (think auto-complete open new repo or find issue)
2. More settings in general. Example: ability to control what details display in the issues list (show/hide labels and such).
Best option available but not there yet.
Its the best option for this use out there but there are some significant problems:
* The dialog to select your group is really ugly and is not populated with any projects but those you own directly (no organizations or shared projects)
* You can only view one project's issues at a time and the app has no way to store favorites or anything.
* A lot of the text can be very hard to read, especially issue #
Needs to pick up where github leaves off
To me a native client should do all those things that GitHub doesn’t do on its own. Like give me more filtering and sorting choices and convenience actions. I want to be able to sort by title, to easily “mark as dupe”, to easily view all issues that haven’t been assigned to a milestone, etc. It works as advertised, but doesn’t go far enough to really be more useful than the web client.
