ChiliProject is not maintained anymore. Please be advised that there will be no more updates.

We do not recommend that you setup new ChiliProject instances and we urge all existing users to migrate their data to a maintained system, e.g. Redmine. We will provide a migration script later. In the meantime, you can use the instructions by Christian Daehn.

Differences Between Chiliproject and Redmine

This page is a work in progress. Feel free to fill it in with the differences. Use bold to highlight best choices.

History and backgrounds

  • ChiliProject 1.x is a fork of Redmine 1.1, with some bugfixes and a compatibility with both.
  • ChiliProject 2.x introduced some small features and some library changes, with many old and incomplete libraries upgraded, and a lot of work was done to "de-vendorize" gems and migrate them to Bundler in order to simplify deploy and future development.
  • ChiliProject 3.x introduces a new design (layout and theme), a more powerful text processing (for wikis and wiki content), and the foundation for adding tags
