Redmine_Importer: Redmine CSV Import Plugin

redmine_importer 0.3.1

Though, I’m a newbie in Ruby and RoR development. But after 4-5 hours googling, I decided write a Redmine import plugin for those tons of issues in Excel. So, I downloaded Redmine source code, Aptana Studio, then learn how to program with Ruby and RoR…

Finally, I built a plugin named redmine_importer, and it works. Thanks to the 1st user, my colleague, Vince Zhang

redmine_importer 0.3.1 features:

  • Import CSV file, user define split and wrap character
  • User define CSV column and issue field mapping

  • Make sure you have “fastercsv” gem installed(vertion 1.4.0 is tested): #gem install fastercsv
