Issue Trackers Integration, Tasks and IDE Contexts

It happens quite often that we juggle a number of tasks during the day. A lot of windows/tabs are open that sometimes cause us to lose context. Now there’s a better way to handle this. With the help of  IDE contexts feature, you will be able to easily manage the entire contexts – open all files related to each task in one click, commit to VCS only files related to this particular changelist, or even connect your contexts to tasks in issue-trackers (we currently support YouTrack, JIRA, RedMine, PivotalTracker and GitHub).

Well, a picture is worth a thousand words:

We personally use this feature every day.

It’s available in all our IDEs – PhpStorm, WebStorm, IntelliJ IDEA, RubyMine, and PyCharm.

Try it & and develop with pleasure!

    This feature is so helpful to me. I’m currently in the process of building a plugin for PhpStorm to manage our own (in-house) issue tracker and I wondered – is there a way to hook into the context feature? If you could point me somewhere on the web where I might find some help on how to do this that would be great.

    Keep up the good work!

    Do you have support? I’ve heard there is JIRA inside it actually, but I’m not quite sure…

    While on the subject. I find it very frustrating that tabs cannot be re-ordered. Grouping would be even better.

    Hi, guys.

    Please, vote for features tracker support in our tracker.
    For example, for mantis support here:

    It’s very hard to look throug all comment on developers forum, blog, and so on and count votes manually for every feature possible.

    Vote for feature in tracker and if this fearture will get a considerable amount of votes we will definetly work on it.
