Ever wanted to be able to personalize JIRA, perhaps to remove a click or two with AJAX to speed up a common task?
Introducing Speakeasy, a Framework for Quick Personalization and Extension
Take the Challenge: 15 minutes of hacking, $15k in cash
Codegeist, Atlassian’s plugin coding competition, has a $15,000 cash prize for the best Speakeasy extension. And you still have two weeks to enter a submission. We challenge you to spend 15 minutes building something that makes JIRA easier and better for you, submit your extension to Codegeist, and enter to win a Codegeist t-shirt and a chance at $15,000 in cash money.
Getting Started with Speakeasy
Follow these steps to get hacking on a Speakeasy extension:
- Install Speakeasy on an instance of JIRA
- Start building a Speakeasy extension
- Submit your extension to Codegeist
Simple Implementation, Large Impact
We’ve published the binaries and source of a number of Speakeasy Extensions that have been built here at Atlassian. You’ll see that many of these extensions are small improvements: keyboard shortcut “i” to create a JIRA issue from any page; better attachment display; issue properties quick look on mouse-over; etc. However, Speakeasy extensions can tackle much bigger problems, too. For example, our CEO and co-founder, Mike Cannon-Brookes, built an extension that restructures the admin screen navigation to be a horizontal, top-positioned list with drop-downs instead of the standard left-sidebar menu.
We know most of our JIRA customers are technical, and we’re excited to be providing a framework that lets people quickly and easily personalize and extend JIRA. So give Speakeasy a go and submit what you built for a chance to win $15,000!
