Projectfork consists of many extensions working together; but the streamlined interface will make you feel right at home as if you're using a regular, single component. Installing and uninstalling Projectfork is as simple as with any extension: A single package to install, and a single extension to remove from your site.
User Experience First
Projectfork looks and behaves like your average Joomla 3 extension for the most part so you can it pick up naturally. If you ever get stuck, we provide plenty of comprehensible documentation on our website.
Projectfork uses a Joomla-native code approach wherever possible and is written "by the book" and best code practices. There is no custom theme engine, no Zend or other framework - just pure Joomla MVC architecture. Looking to hire a developer to make some modifications? No need to find a "Projectfork specialist"!

No frontend access. This means you require all users to log into to joomla's backup. Not good idea
Whats the point in having the calendar if your tasks are not tied to it? Who wants to create tasks then turn around and post events for those tasks?
You're right with the calendar..pretty useless at the moment :D
Hydra is a huge thing and I can impossibiliy work on everything at a time.
On the roadmap you see that I've promised the task/calendar integration in 0.6.5.
It's not there I know but I'm working on it.
To this end, we are very impressed with Tobias Kuhn's Hydra Manager ! This software seamlessly integrates into our website and allows our board members to share tasks, documents and calendar events, even though they are scattered across two states! Tobias is friendly, responsive, and open to the needs of his user base. Although still in development (v0.6.1 is installed at the time of this writing), Hydra Manager promises a simple solution to our collaboration requirements. Thanks, Tobias!

Hydra goes beyond all my expectations. It is very comprehensive and it looks very slick indeed.
Congrats to the Hydra team, you have done a great job for the community!
So far this application is very well designed for being so young. I am very excited to see where it heads.
other stand-alone Project Managers (dotProject,phpGroupWare..) before I found this Component here.
And I can say that this Component has more potential than most other Groupware Tools!
The whole System is easy to understand, no useless Gimmicks or
Especially for people who
- are new to Project Management
- don't want to read a big manual first
- setup a workstation on the fly
this component is just perfect. But I can not recommend it for bigger and complex Projects. The component is just not ready for this yet. But I'm sure it will be greatly improved in the future.
Thanks for this component, great job!
Also it would be nice if the component accommodated templates with not too much width to play with. The site I'm trying to introduct Hydra too is quite a narrow design so I tried disabling some of the Settings options but even with them turned off the heading 'Settings' is still displayed anyway so the width is still taken up.
Nevertheless, I'll be keeping an eye on the progress of Hydra and will be installing further updates as they are released.
I am planning to use Hydra as a basic project tracker that allows employees to check on the status of certain projects, and to clearly define what tasks and resources will be necessary to complete that project. Ultimately, I also want to publish this information for the general public in a read-only fashion.
There are a few bugs yet in the program, but I am *really* impressed with what I have used so far. I don't think Hydra is intended to replace the functionality of MS Project or dotProject, but it is a very nice, straight-forward, easy to understand component for doing basic project tracking, which is exactly what I was looking for.
But, I still have a suggenstion. have you perhaps got in mind that Project Admins are able to send out mails to project team Members when something changes, or else that when project members change status that admin gets a mail?
keep up the good work :)
there will be a Project and User-Tracker in the Future.
And a note for everyone:
Some People have have discovered several Bugs and Problems in this Component.
There are some Hotfixes available in our Forum!
There will be an Update to 0.6.1 next anyway :)
