Some years ago I realized that the Agile way steals a lot of the development time. Whenever I start a new task I must change the status, later I have to modify it once again and so on. I can recall many tickets which were as costly as the time needed for their organization and only in case I have a direct link to the corresponding board.
A company with a small number of projects may modify the JIRA’s homepage accordingly. But those lucky gluttons who have more than 20 projects are really suffering. It is almost impossible to find a group of tasks you need in two clicks and a manager(or scrum master) spends a lot of time with custom JQL queries.
How to develop a routine to stop wasting time? - it was the question a few years ago. To help myself and those guys who use the Chrome browser, I decided to create a new extension with a limited set of requirements.

- The design should look like Windows 8 (metro user interface). I think it is the only way to use every pixel of a monitor.
- Workspaces (support of JQL).
- Timer with start and stop features.
- Update notifications.
- Without reloading; everything should be smooth and fast.
- Dashboard for an external monitor to see the progress of a workspace.
- Auto-refresh and filtering features for the previous requirement.
At first glance the technology stack looks normal. However, I would like to clarify some points.
Lo-Dash and Moment.js
In the end of 2012 I had a long and nice discussion touching many aspects of JS frameworks including their future. We’ve ended it with two most promising: Ember.js and Angular.js. Since then nothing has changed. Angular.js is the most popular and easiest event-driven framework nowadays.
