Free Open Source Bug Issues Trackers

Free & Open Source Bug & Issues Trackers

Keeping track of issues and bugs when you’re doing web design or web development on a new site is a vital part of the process.

However a lot of project management tools don’t have a nice actionable way to work through the issues, and who really needs one more bill for another piece of software on their stack.

With that in mind I’ve compiled a list of free and/or open source issue trackers, some of which are self hosted while others are cloud based.

Name Hosted Notes
Debugle Cloud Modern, simple, and intuative.
Gitlab Cloud Best free option for large teams.
Github Cloud Free only includes public issue tracker
Bitbucket Cloud Free for up to 5 users.
MantisBT Self Open source, free addons.
Bugzilla Self Multiple extensions and browser plugins.
