A need for “a simple, visual way to keep track of what needs to get done” is the main reason why the open-source TaskBoard has been developed. With a minimalistic design approach by the developer and contributors, TaskBoard aims to replicate the basics of commonly used Kanban apps like Trello and LeanKit all within a very small and light footprint.
Some of TaskBoard’s main key features are the following:
- Email notifications
- Unlimited and customizable boards with items
- Full history logging
- Robust privilege system
- Supports file attachments
TaskBoard is licensed under the MIT License and can be self-hosted on a Linux-based server. For this tutorial, we recommend using a public-facing server with a freshly installed CentOS 7 Linux distribution, along with a registered domain name.
If you follow this guide on how to install and configure TaskBoard on CentOS 7 correctly, the install process won’t take more than 10-15 minutes. Let’s get started!
