Trac on cloud

1-click AWS Deployment    1-click Azure Deployment 1-click Google Deployment

Overview

Trac is an enhanced wiki and issue tracking system for software development projects. Trac uses a minimalistic approach to web-based software project management. It helps developers write great software while staying out of the way.
It provides an interface to Subversion as well as other version control systems, an integrated Wiki and convenient reporting facilities.

Trac allows wiki markup in issue descriptions and commit messages, creating links and seamless references between bugs, tasks, changesets, files and wiki pages. A timeline shows all current and past project events in order, making the acquisition of an overview of the project and tracking progress very easy. The roadmap shows the road ahead, listing the upcoming milestones.

Cognosys provides hardened and ready to run images of Trac on all public cloud ( AWS marketplace and Azure).

Trac is owned by Trac (https://trac.edgewall.org/) and they own all related trademarks and IP rights for this software.
