A GitHub Integration
like you've never seen before.
No one enjoys spending unnecessary time in their project management tool. We all prefer to focus on the fun part. Building great software. That's what we love.
So we designed our integration with GitHub in a way that you don't have to manually update and replicate your activity in Blossom.
You can focus on coding and getting stuff done without having to send annoying progress updates.
Marking Cards as blocked directly from your Command Line
Another situation where Blossom gets out of your way is when you hit a blocker. Let's say you are working on your integration of a payment processor. Suddenly you find out that the API you want to use is not behaving like it is documented.
You can just mention in a commit message that you are blocked and because Blossom knows that the branch you are currently on is related to the card of integrating the payment processor it will automagically mark it as blocked for you and add a reference to your specific commit.
No need to ever get out of your current workflow. You can stay in your code base, no need to even log in to Blossom. Yet everyone who needs to know about the blocker gets notified.
Close Checklist Items via Commit Messages
If you want to you can even close checklist items of a card using commit messages. The great thing here is that Blossom will automatically add a reference to your commit on GitHub and show it inline next to the checklist item you just completed.
Also when you hover over the reference you will see a tooltip with the meta information of your commit. Again, no context switching needed.
Smart Support for GitHub Issues
Often implementations you are working on are related to GitHub issues. Whether it is about Issues of your own GitHub projects or if you just want to reference a known bug of an open source library.
That’s why it was very important to us that referencing GitHub Issues is as easy as pasting a link into a comment. Once you’ve referenced a GitHub Issue in Blossom we will display a brief summary of it and automatically notify you about important changes.
No need to change your current Workflow
Keeping everyone up to date on progress & potential blockers is hard, especially when it comes to what’s going on in your code base. This is why we’ve built an incredibly tight integration with GitHub.
You don’t have to change your current workflow. Blossom just magically understands things like GitHub issues, feature branches & pull requests and shows you what you need to know.
