Using Mylyn with Flyspray
I’ve been thinking that I need a somewhat private issue tracking system, and when Max told me we have Flyspray installed on our server, I thought why not set up Mylyn‘s generic web connector once again. So here is what was required for setting up Mylyn with Flyspray for me:
New Task URL:
Query Request URL:
<td class='task_id'><a [^>]+>(\d+)</a></td>.+?<td class='task_summary'><a [^>]+>([^>]+)</a></td>
The query pattern here is the simple form, where the ID is captured in the first group and the description in the second one. Building a pattern that would support Mylyn’s labeled groups for more attributes doesn’t seem too hard as Flyspray’s markup is pretty clean (by using descriptive class attributes as in the pattern above).
