Tech preview: view and edit Artifacts as documents

Mixing Artifacts and Documents is not exactly something new, we have been working on the subject since a while with Baseline or Document Generation features. These features were designed mainly for project teams that need to produce documents for communication, sharing, compliance, etc. The idea is that structured items (bugs, user stories, features) are easier for daily work compared to a document.

The return of the Document

The main advantage of documents over artifacts is their low entry barrier for both reading and writing. We are accustomed to reading texts sequentially, with a logical order of sections. Authors can introduce concepts and reuse them later without re-explaining everything. Readers can quickly scan text, scroll up and down if something is unclear, and avoid constant cross-referencing like “this comes after story #…” or “please refer to epic #… for general definitions.”

Thanks for asking kid !

Let’s talk about…


Artidoc is a new plugin for Tuleap Enterprise Edition that aims to provide an excellent user experience for reading and writing documents without giving up efficiency of day to day work by engineering teams.

The goal is to offer roles that write things down (architects, product owners, designers) a familiar, easy-to-use, and efficient tool. Meanwhile, implementation roles can easily add metadata, link technical details for traceability, and track project progress. This is possible because documents are made of artifacts.

The core component of an Artidoc is a section. A section consists of a title and a paragraph, which translate to an artifact’s title and description. When a new section is added, it’s saved as an artifact behind the scenes.

Add a new section to the document, it will be saved as an Artifact

Sections can also be edited, and changes will be saved as new versions of the artifact (a changeset).

This is just the beginning, hence the Tech Preview in the title, what comes next is really exciting. Let’s sum it up, who will benefit from using Artidoc:

  • Project Managers and Team Leads: Who need to ensure alignment between documentation and project execution.
  • Product Owners and Designers: Who require a streamlined tool for writing specifications and seeing them seamlessly integrated with project tasks.
  • Engineering Teams: That need to maintain traceability and manage detailed technical information within their projects.
  • Compliance and QA Teams: Who benefit from structured documentation that supports traceability and version control.

Artidoc will be the bedrock of Tuleap Requirement Management later this year. We will improve editing capabilities, export options, document structure management, and coverage and traceability. Stay tuned!

Good bye RHEL & CentOS 7

RHEL and CentOS7 reach the End of Life at the end of June 2024, so does our support for these platforms. Tuleap 15.10 is the last version to provide packages for “el7”. If not already done, you should upgrade to “el9” (RHEL, Rocky, Alma) as soon as possible.
