TaskJuggler

TaskJuggler

TaskJuggler is a modern and powerful Open Source project management tool. Using Taskjuggler's powerful filtering and reporting algorithms you can create task lists, resource usage tables, status reports, project calendars and project accounting statements.

Instead of clicking through hundreds of dialog boxes, a Taskjuggler project is specified in a simple text format. Simply list all your tasks and their dependencies. The resulting schedule is then presented as a GANTT chart, Table, HTML, XML or CSV report, so that the user can visualize their entries. The software also produces Pert charts.

Its approach to project planning and tracking is more flexible and superior to the commonly used Gantt chart editing tools. It has already been successfully used in many projects and scales easily to projects with hundreds of resources and thousands of tasks.
