Pickler¶ ↑

Synchronize user stories in Pivotal Tracker with Cucumber features.

If you aren't using Cucumber, you can still use pickler as a Pivotal Tracker command line client, provided you humor it with a features/ directory containing a tracker.yml file.

Getting started¶ ↑

gem install pickler
echo "api_token: ..."  > ~/.tracker.yml
echo "project_id: ..." > ~/my/app/features/tracker.yml
pickler --help

For details about the Pivotal Tracker API, including where to find your API token and project id, see www.pivotaltracker.com/help/api .

The pull and push commands map the story's name into the “Feature: …” line and the story's description with an additional two space indent into the feature's body. Keep this in mind when entering stories into Pivotal Tracker.

Usage¶ ↑

pickler pull

Download all well formed stories (basically, any story with “Scenario:” in the body) that are not in the “unstarted” or “unscheduled” state to the features/ directory.

pickler push

Upload all features with a tracker url in a comment on the first line.

pickler search <query>

List all stories matching the given query.

pickler start <story> <name>

Pull a given feature to features/<name>.feature and change its state to started.

pickler start <story> -

Pull a given feature to a file name based on the title and change its state to started. (I use this more than any other command, and you probably should, too).

pickler finish <story>

Push a given feature and change its state to finished.

pickler install-vim-plugin [<directory>]

Installs the Vim plugin to <directory>, or ~/.vim/plugin. This plugin currently only provides omnicomplete (CTRL-X, CTRL-O) of feature ids in Git commit messages.

pickler --help

Full list of commands.

pickler <command> --help

Further help for a given command.

Contributing¶ ↑

Pull requests will be ignored if they don't follow the Git convention of a 50 character or less subject and optional paragraphs wrapped to 72 characters. See stopwritingramblingcommitmessages.com/.

If I provide you with feedback on your pull request, generally you should squash your changes into the previous commit when submitting a second request.

Disclaimer¶ ↑

No warranties, expressed or implied.

Notably, the push and pull commands are quite happy to blindly clobber features if so instructed. Pivotal Tracker has a history to recover things server side.
