Omega Issue Tracker

Traditional issue trackers emphasize metadata and workflow and tend to add considerable overhead to a project. They make little sense for small, highly collaborative teams.

Ω is not traditional. It facilitates squashing issues, not documenting their life stories. No administrivia.

Initial version created during a Big Idea Day at Pulse Energy. More details


Give it a whirl at The redis database there is severely limited, but it should suffice as a demo.


  • real-time

    • you never need to refresh to get updates
    • chat with team members in the same context
    • optional growl-like notifications even outside the browser (Chrome only, for now)
  • minimalist

    • everything you need on a single page
    • no need to sign up for yet another account with yet another password
    • use tags and flexible filtering to achieve any workflow you want
    • easy setup thanks to few dependencies
  • projects

    • create as many as you need (one per task/feature works well)
    • can mark 'top secret' if you want some privacy (for total security, host Ω behind your firewall)


Depending on your needs, you could create your project on the demo site. But to have Ω all to yourself, there are a couple of options:

  1. Install it on your own server

    1. Install node.js (which comes with npm)
    2. git clone
    3. cd omega; npm install
  2. Install it in the cloud via a PaaS like Heroku, OpenShift, etc.


Start the server:

npm start

Or, to specify options:

node server [--redis] [--port <port>] [--pass <password>]

<redis> - use Redis for persistence instead of json on the file system.

<port> - Where the server listens for connections. Defaults to 1337.

<password> - Password required for accessing project admin section. Defaults to 'admin'. (Default username is also 'admin'.)

Then just open a browser to http://localhost:1337 or wherever.


Ω is unit tested using Jasmine. Open tests/SpecRunner.html to run the tests.
