A ticketing application for use with clients. Created with the amber framework.

Ticketing App

Amber Framework

This is a simple ticketing application meant for use with customers to communicate issues with whomever is admin for the site. The main goal for this application is to be lightweight and to be fast to both deploy and run.

Users when joining need to be approved by an admin before being able to do anything, the reason for this is to prevent spam and to prevent people making multiple accounts for whatever reason.

There's an admin view and a user view where users can only see their tickets and create new ones, while admins can see all users and all tickets.

If you want to help, feel free to make a PR and help out with this. If you do help out I will add you in the list of contributors.

Please Note:

No email support currently, mailers are still WIP.

Delete action doesn't work currently, working on a fix right now. The default way Amber handled CSRF tokens was through JavaScript so I'm looking into an alternative or see if Amber has another way to access CSRF token handling.
