what's your favorite kanban board?

submitted by GravitySpoiled

I'm checking out flowly right now. I'm looking for a kanban board that optimally connects with a todo list and calendar, preferably webdav (but no must). what can you guys recommend?

I used this for a project once and its great. Super powerful and has a great API for automation https://kanboard.org/


Ugly af, but it's really good, I use it for organizing my ideas and tasks, and it's perfect for what I need.


There are some relatively nice custom themes.


Honestly, I like it better ugly, but yeah, that's a good tip, maybe I could try some


If you have NextCloud, you can try Deck. I moved off from NextCloud and Deck was, oddly enough, one of the harder apps to replace. I ended up with Vikunja. They have an android app in alpha but it feels pretty polished


It's incredibly annoying, though, that you can only copy boards in the app, and when you do it makes triplicate of all the cards.

I am using that since it's very easy to use and I've got nextcloud already. I wish it would work like jtxboard


I use planka, which feels exactly like what trello used to feel: fast & simple. It does not have an app though.


Personally, literally some postit notes for my own selfhosted projects


I use https://wekan.github.io/ for tracking items to repair.


I liked using KanBoard. Its simple and runs well inside a docker container.

Nextcloud deck, with the mobile app


Cryptpad has a very capable Kanban in it. No mobile apps yet, but I understand that is on the road map.


Can I hijack this thread to ask if any of these recommendations have iOS apps? Vikunja looks the most enticing to me but seems they don’t have an iOS app sadly.


Which platform? Desktop or mobile ? For android, there's "jtx board" which works for me pretty well.


Wow. I use jtx board and never tried the Kanban view ... man, I didn't even know it did that! Thanks!


You're welcome! Glad I helped 😊

jtxboard is incredibly powerful, thank you!


You're welcome 😊

Leantime for sure! Because it is very feature complete for project management


Do you mean leantime.io?


Kanboard is pretty great even if it does feel dated. I tried a lot of the newer alternatives and they all had either weird bugs or quirks I didn't appreciate.


We've been internally using the stock Forgejo (Gitea) one for about a year now, previous Nexcloud Deck, but it was a bit too buggy, and we didn't really need NC in the first place anyways.


NC deck could be cool but I found it really disappointing.


The best kanban is the one you already have. It's like "the best camera is the one you have with you" -- Annie Lennox, I think.

For me, that's gitlab on-prem.

for me that's jtx :D thanks to another commentor




It’s the one I use along with Trello. Not gonna be a fan favorite for Selfhosted though


It may be the worst one, but it's the one everyone at my company uses. Having multiples is worse than having a bad one.


Not sure how different the cloud one vs self hosted one is. TBH I'd skip self hosting a Kanban board.
