This is not about Kanboard per se, but I thought this might interest some of the people here who like to look at what else is out there every now and then: Tiki, a Free and Open Source web platform (it’s kinda hard to describe because it pretty much does everything), recently implemented a preliminary kanban “plug-in” into their feature set, and I’m quite excited by that. Last year I spoke with the developer who did the initial implementation of kanban in Tiki, and he does understand the huge feature set required by proper kanban, so it gives me hope in a future-proof scalable solution integrated with the Tiki trackers functionality, because currently I feel trapped in Kanboard. I love Kanboard, but its performance limitations, scalability and maintenance state worry me a bit, for my very-long-term use.
I also like the thought of having kanban functionality integrated with Tiki’s general ticket/tracker functionality, and integrated with wiki pages (for internal team documentation, or public website integration, etc.) and file attachments and the other gazillion features Tiki offers as built-in modules (they call them plugins, but they’re not really third-party-shipped plugins like we’ve seen in WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, and Kanboard… they’re rather built-in modules, I would say. So their approach solves the typical plugin problems).
Tiki is kind of exceptional in the way they handle their project sustainably (the project has been going on for over 20 years), and they are a very actively maintained project with an established team of dozens of regular contributors, so I have a good amount of confidence that over time this feature will become rock-solid, capable of handling large teams and large amounts of data.
I haven’t tried this feature myself yet (I’m hoping to do so “soon”, when I get around to installing Tiki 25.x on a spare server at home for my own use; I think there will be a 25.1 release coming this month, according to this page), but I’d be curious to hear your experience with the kanban “plugin” if any of you have decided to try it out, keeping in mind that this feature is (as I understand it) very new and might have some rough edges (and if you encounter bugs in it, the official Tiki bug tracker would be the place to report them, not the Kanboard forums …)
