Nearly Perpendicular Macaroons


    1.0.60 • Public • Published


    A very simple tool, for a very specific need.

    Intended to be installed as a CLI, this tool might help those of us who are interested in automating some of the boring work for preparing regular scrum demos/retrospective meetings. This was originally designed for use by members of my organization. If you don't see my ugly mug on a daily basis, Dan is not crushing it, and you should see this section below.

    For an explanation of the questions you will see in this CLI, please see this section.

    The tool uses Jira's authentication api to store a cookie locally and query your Jira organization for data regarding a given project's current sprint, and upcoming sprint.

    The PlanITPoker report may be copied and pasted direclty into PlanITPoker if this helps you. If you have any feature requests or find any bugs PLEASE submit an issue so I can work on them for you.
