Did you know that you can buy an official license for a stand-alone JIRA server for only 10$? Even better, Atlasian actually donates the money to charity. Of course, this license is limited to 10 users.
This setup is inspired from . The Scaleway bare-metal 4-core ARM has the similar processing power with the Raspberry Pi 2... with better, faster Ethernet network interface and more reliable storage (over network).
Download Atlassian JIRA (get the tar.gz, not the binary installer which will not run on ARM), and unpack it:
tar xf atlassian-jira-software-7.3.2.tar.gz
JIRA runs entirely on java, which needs to be installed. According to , JIRA needs Oracle Java. It can be installed from :
apt-get install software-properties-common
apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
apt-get install oracle-java8-set-default
Check your brand new JRE:
~# java -version
java version "1.8.0_121"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_121-b13)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 25.121-b13, mixed mode)
See atlassian-jira-software-7.3.2-standalone/README.txt for install instructions:
# Do not modify this file unless instructed. It is here to store the location of the JIRA home directory only and is typically written to by the installer.
jira.home = /usr/local/jira
You are ready to start the server with atlassian-jira-software-7.3.2-standalone/bin/start-jira.sh.
To run JIRA in the foreground, start the server with start-jira.sh -fg
executing as current user

Using the heavily "java"-loaded JIRA on a mini ARM board cannot result in a speedy or reactive interface, but it is usable if you do not mind to wait a few seconds between each page. JIRA pages themselves are well-designed to support long latency during asynchronous updates.
This solution is perfect for managing your life with tickets. Public and private TODO-style projects can be created. The limitation of 10 users is not an actual problem if a generic account for "friends" or "family" is shared among all other users of the server. You would not like to create a dedicated user for each person you know anyway.
