"What do you mean this story is 8 points?"
GitCup is a tool that allows you to replace time estimates and story points with coffee cups. It integrates seamlessly with GitHub and it uses the commits and issues already in your repository to simplify and improve the estimation and planning process of future work.
Story points can be misleading. When planning a sprint, a 8 points story is assumed to be the equivalent of a 5 points story + a 3 points story, which is not necessary the case. Coffee cups don't allow that implicit conversion as their duration for planning purposes is auto-generated from data.
You don't need to track velocity anymore. GitCup adjusts the duration of your coffee cups with every new commit.
You can choose to use iterations with fixed length sprints or milestones with deadlines. Just select the top priority items that fit in your sprint/milestone duration.
Each contributor can have their own priorities and estimates while they share the same repository and associated issues.
Seamless integration with GitHub means there is only one source of truth.
All interactions with GitHub are read only. Your work items and estimations are copied and stored locally so you are free to do as you wish without affecting your repository, the GitHub Issues or the estimations from other contributors.
GitCup is under constant development and new features and improvements are released regularly.
You can get those updates automatically if you enable automatic app updates by changing the:Store Settings.
Alternatively you can check for the latest updates and download them manually from:Store Updates.
