jQuery Gantt editor – bugfix released

Online Demo

Download Sources

After few days of “massive debugging” we released an upgraded version of jQuery Gantt editor. (try it)


Bugs fixed:

  1. an ugly bug when using the editor with a western time-zone: GMT-n (e.g: USA, Canada, South America etc.).
  2. an invalid message call when a circular reference was created that force  js execution to stop
  3. no detection for avoiding a parent depending on its descendant

New feature:

  1. dependencies now supports lags: you can specify a dependency in the form of “7:3” that means the task will start after three days task “7” is completed

I’ve upgraded the component documentation: http://roberto.twproject.com/2012/08/24/jquery-gantt-editor/

Feedback welcome!

  1. Same here. I think the INVALID DATE FORMAT error comes up only when you choose dates in the past.

  2. I’ve tested quite a few gantt libraries recently and this one comes closest to supporting our workflow. Would you consider to add the ability to collapse nodes (this is especially useful if there is a lot of data in the chart and you want to get focus)?

    Thanks for open sourcing this!

    1. We already started to develop this feature (there are some lines of code already written), but we had to release the “main” product so we “frozen” this feature.
      But the idea is still there……

  3. I’m sorry for the inconvenient on our component; as I wrote on my post it is part of a larger pm solution http://twproject.com, where internationalization and time-zone management are solved server-side by user settings. We have no issues reported for the embedded component, so I’m quite confident to solve this problem quickly.
    I hope to release a new patch tomorrow.
    Stay tuned.

  4. Still can’t use this for my workflow, but i have to tell you, this is simply amazing.
    Never thought of jquery to do this kind of job.
    Great work.
    Thanks for the open source.

  5. Great work. first time have seen component for gantt editing. Please would you let me know if it is possible to get this working with knockout. At the moment we are using knockout view-models for data binding.

    1. Thanks!
      This Gantt editor interact with the server for loading and saving project only.
      A MVVC model, as Knockout is, requires to implement the “view” part respecting its “syntax”, and my component doesn’t; so a full integration could be really hard.

      If instead you want to intercept client-server communication, this is more confortable.
