Join us in the Sandbox- Firefly Software Project Management with Komodo IDE

By Troy Topnik, January 12, 2010

Sometimes the best way to learn how to use a new software tool is to just play with it. We've set up the Sandbox project in ActiveState Firefly for people to get to know the system and try things out.

How to Save Time with Firefly Ticket Management

By Liliya Apostolova, November 30, 2009

Firefly has a number of convenient bridges between features which work as handy shortcuts and make Firefly more than the sum of its parts. One such bridge is between source code control and the ticket management system.

Whether you're using Subversion or Mercurial as your version control system, you can issue commands to manage tickets, i.e.close or reference them right from the commit log message.

Workspace is quite a challenge.
