  • Ask HN: Software/methods to structure time for side projects
    Pomatez or any Pomodoro timer for tricking yourself into doing work, my brain needs that sometimes: Kanboard for a blazing fast Kanban board (easy to self host, uses little in the way of resources): Alternatively, for more serious project management there's also OpenProject (also includes time tracking and reports): - Source: Hacker News / 15 days ago
  • Elegant open source project tracking, Trello like but self-hosted
    For someone that's not a web developer, I found Kanboard to be the easiest to set up, and it has all the basic features you'd expect. It's a traditional PHP app where you copy the files to your web server and set a few configuration options and you're good. If you want to use it locally, you download it, run php -S localhost:8080, and start using it. Note: The project is in maintenance mode,... - Source: Hacker News / 4 months ago
  • My Open-Source toolkit for 2024
    I kicked off 2024 with an attempt to get more organized and continue my quest to rely less on big tech. To start things off, I’m trying out an open-source taskboard called Kanboard. It’s like Trello but without all the integrations or surprises. I’ve been using it for personal tasks and side projects.

  • Trello Alternative
    For the Kanban experience, I was using Kanboard. It is perfect for Project management and it allows for relations between the cards as well. It is also solid in terms of stability. It is also very lightweight and can easily run on Raspberry Pi. The only downside is that the UI feels a little outdated and it is not Mobile friendly. Source: about 1 year ago

  • Project Management
    Deck is very minimal and not really suited for anything beyond simple, personal stuff, in my opinion. As far as self-hosted, my favorite is still Kanboard, which has a lot of plugins and themes to choose from. Leantime is good too and a bit different. I also like Vikunja and Wekan.

  • [Hobby] Programmer LF Designer & Artist to make Couch Co-Op game
    I will set us up with project management & software. I'm thinking JIRA + Confluence since they both have a free tier for teams with less than 10 users. If we run into any limitations, I can set us up with self-hosted software like Kanboard and Dokuwiki. Source: over 1 year ago
