      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 is not comparable to Trello. Restyaboard and Wekan are the real alternatives to the Trello.

      dspjm It has functionality of kanban. It has another version of project of scrum. They are independent, so you can't have them together. I think it's worse than trello. In terms of Kanban, it has much less features.

      kribbremath 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.

      gholem Same functionality, a simpler interface (debatable), but open source and without complex requirements.

      alexkowel Kanboard is free, easy to install and easy to use. Really good alternative.

      Open source, but no Ajax or any similarities with Trello. I'd rather prefer Wekan or Restyaboard

      Some users think OpenProject is a great alternative to Trello, some don't.
      OpenProject is too complex to be a good alternative to Trello. It could be a good alternative to Microsoft Project instead.
      Negative comment over 2 years ago

      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.

    6. A Kanban-inspired app for keeping track of things that need to get done. The goal of TaskBoard is to provide a simple and clean interface to a functional and minimal application for keeping track of tasks. It's not trying to be the next Trello or LeanKit.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      KuboFHromoslav 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.
