MantisBT is a free open source issue / ticket tracker. If you haven’t heard of it or seen it lately, it’s worth checking out: MantisBT.org
I use Mantis for ticket tracking and recently wrote some Xojo code that sends RuntimeExceptions straight to my installation (which you are welcome to join). The ticket is pre-filled with system information, the exception stack, and optional comments from the user.
Someone had built a class for this kind of thing in the past, but it connects to a service I’m not particularly fond of and have blocked on a system level.
I was wondering if anyone else here uses MantisBT or would have an interest in this reporting class (code generator app). There may not be a market for this tool, which would be okay not everything I make sees the public. But if there’s a market for Mantis users that does happen to exist, well maybe?
I’m not sure what details to share. There isn’t much to it. You put in your API credentials, select a product / category / version and click Generate to generate the class. The app obfuscates your API key (the same way Plugins Pro does RegisterMBS) to prevent casual abuse, but you should definitely use a special report-only account.
