This week we hosted the FunClub’s August session at finnlabs.
While everyone enjoyed free pizza and drinks our Tim Felgentreff talked about fexprs and how this one construct is (almost) everything you need to define a complete programming language. His talk was inspired by a great blog post, which you should definitely check out if you want to learn more. Also all the code can be found at Tim’s github repository.

We have released two new plugins which where developed during a client project. We think they will also be useful for the public, so we are sending them out into the wild.
ChiliProject Activity Module
Activity Module is a simple plugin, that solves one problem. We were using ChiliProject for more than just project management and issue tracking. One particular project e.g. is used as a knowledge-base with FAQs and training material available for all users. Since its main purpose is to provide the content buried in the wiki and forums, we wanted to deactivate the Activity tab within the project menu. It was of no use for the given project and simply occupied space, that could be used for other things.
So ChiliProject Activity Module simply allows you to deactivate that tab in the project menu. Or in other words: Activity becomes a project module, just like Issue Tracking and Wiki.
You may find the sources and detailed installation instructions at the plugin’s GitHub page.
ChiliProject Wiki Tabs
Wiki Tabs was developed for the very same project. We wanted to have multiple wiki sections, so to say. With ChiliProject Wiki Tabs you are able to add tabs to the project menu, which point to certain wiki pages. These settings can be configured per project and you can have as many tabs as you like. To support the feeling of separate wiki sections, Wiki Tabs also manages the currently highlighted tab. So whenever you are on a wiki page, that is configured to be a tab in the project menu or on a child page, the right tab will be highlighted in the menu.
Again, you may find the sources and detailed installation instructions at the plugin’s GitHub page.

During the last few weeks finnlabs has worked on a new design for ChiliProject. We didn’t start from scratch. Eric Davis had already spent a lot of effort in this area. It was already a major improvement and a great starting point for our initiative.
You can see the latest results on ux.finn.de. Everyone is invited to create an account in this installation and play around. We will continuously deploy new versions in the next couple of weeks. I am quite happy with the first results, however there still is a long way to go.
The focus of our first sprint were the following design components:
- ChiliProject logo (first shot)
- Header, including a new project menu with search and autocompletion
- The project menu (previously the project tabs) on the left
The code is published in the finnlabs repository on GitHub.
Our goals for the next sprint are:
- Integration of your contributions and comments
- Project home page redesign
- Wiki redesign

“Berlins Zukunft ist offen!” / “Berlin’s future is open!” is the title of the Open Source/Open Standards Award for ideas and best practices from the TSB Innovationsagentur Berlin and the Berlin senate initative Projekt Zukunft. finnlabs was awarded first prize in the “best practice” category for “OpenProject – Project collaboration and agile development with ChiliProject”.
The solution already proved itself since the ChiliProject-based project collaboration platform was successfully introduced at major enterprises such as Siemens, congstar and Deutsche Telekom. The software provides project management functionalities as well as agile processes and methods (scrum), e.g. project and milestone planning, issue tracking, document management, product and sprint backlog and much more.
finnlabs is especially proud that Sven Hinderlich, project lead from Deutsche Telekom – Products & Innovation for MyProject (this is how the tool is called at Deutsche Telekom – Products & Innovation), was able to participate in the presentation of awards. He emphasized the decision for this open source solution for Deutsche Telekom: “We were looking for a project collaboration tool and the solution finnlabs offered was the best”.
The prize money will be donated to the ChiliProject community to help the current rework of the layout and design of the software.
Details to the winning projects will also soon be available on open it berlin – the Berlin website around Open Source and Open Standards.
