Last update: 2022-09-17 16:28:11 UTC


A web app to help you organizing your client/provider & your own tasks. Made with CakePHP 3.

  • Both for professional & personal tasks, as a TO DO list.
  • Set deadlines, tags & comments for your pending tasks using tickets.
  • Log your working/whatever sessions and link them with your tickets (or just keep them standalone).
  • Get app & email alerts when something happens (new ticket, changed ticket, deadline approaching, overtime dedicated to a project, etc).

Great to be installed as an extranet webapp.


The recommended way to install ClearStep is with Composer:

composer create-project rogerpro/clearstep

You should now be able to visit the path to where you installed the app and see the home page.


You need a SQL database and a LAMP (or similar) installation to run the app. Check the CakePHP Cookbook to know the exact requirements.

Read and edit config/app.php and setup the 'Datasources' and any other configuration relevant for your application.

Almost done: populating the database

From the root directory of the app, run:

bin/cake migrations migrate

At this moment, you will have an app with the minimum data required on the database.

Last step: creating your users

There's a default admin user at this time. Use it to log in.

Username: temporary Password: 123456

Once logged in, I recommend you to create a new admin with a new password. Log in with it, an then remove the original temporary user for security reasons.

Where to start

Start creating a new project (clic 'New Project' on the left menu').

Then, you can log your first working session


To update the application, just run, from the app root:

composer update


The app uses a subset of Foundation CSS framework by default. You can, however, replace it with any other library or custom styles.
