    • it is the best of the open source options, which is all i really care about these days. it is not strictly kanboard like trello, as it has other features as well. however, it does have a very nice kanboard feature set comparable to trello. there are one other open source trello alternatives which are strictly kanboard, like wekan. however, none of them match up the ui and ux experience of taiga.io Guest • Feb 2017 • 6 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Restyaboard

    Open source Trello-like kanban board. Based on Restya platform.

    • Open source. Perhaps the only real alternative for Trello in this segment. They have nice comparison page against Trello http://restya.com/board/comparison Guest • May 2018 • 11 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Still in active development, has a lot of installation options, but have no packaged version for most common Linux systems, like Debian or Debian-based distros (Ubuntu), RedHat/Centos or derived distros. I mean It's not boxed yet, installation with shell script is really ugly now, in 21th century. Default color scheme is pink and in version I installed it's real pain to modify it to something more comfortable and convinient. kribbremathSep 2019 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • OpenProject is too complex to be a good alternative to Trello. It could be a good alternative to Microsoft Project instead. Guest • Jun 2019 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Trello is more intuitive and simple to use than OpenProject. Plus you do not have the same list structure as on Trello. I got lost alot on OpenProject while searching for a task. Guest • Oct 2018 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Phabricator is centered around software development, but works very well on non-software project management with its kanban boards. It also provides very rare feature: the card can be simultaneously in multiple boards. Another useful feature is subtasks. KuboFHromoslavFeb 2020 Disagree   Agree
