In Part 1 and Part 2 of this series, we demonstrated how RESTful APIs and OpenSocial Gadgets can be used to further extend Mingle’s functionality. We now take a quick look at how Mingle simplifies macro creation with its very own Macro dev toolkit.
The Macro dev toolkit is a way to create custom charts and reports in Mingle cards and pages. The toolkit is available as a gem, either with your Mingle download (in the <MINGLE_HOME>/tools directory where <MINGLE HOME> is the directory where Mingle is installed) or via the web at Github.
The Mingle Dependency Tracker allows dependencies between cards and projects to be recorded and tracked. The tracker (which can be customized further) displays a table of cards with both the cards that they depend on and those that are dependent on them. Cards are color-coded to indicate if their dependencies have been met or not.
Thoughtworks acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land where we work and live, and their continued connection to Country. We pay our respects to Elders past and present. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples were the world's first scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians. We celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders of all communities who also work and live on this land.
As a company, we invite Thoughtworkers to be actively engaged in advancing reconciliation and strengthen their solidarity with the First Peoples of Australia. Since 2019, we have been working with Reconciliation Australia to formalize our commitment and take meaningful action to advance reconciliation. We invite you to review our Reconciliation Action Plan.
