The 4 open source alternatives for Trello

Trello web interface

For those who do not know it yet, surely many of you already know it and even use it, Trello is a project manager based on a visual web interface. It is an interesting application to organize projects. Federico Stella was its creator and it would appear in 2010, although the first version would come out a year later as a web app and with a client for iOS. 2012 would be the year of the arrival of the Android client app with great success.

Well, there are alternatives for almost everything as we always see. In addition, many of these alternatives are open source and free, therefore there are no excuses not to use them. Specifically in this article we are going to describe four of these free alternatives. So you can put your projects in order using the one that suits you best in your case ...

Well, the alternatives that we highlight from LxW are:

  • kanboard: It is free and open source as we have said, but in addition to supplying the functionalities of Trello, Kanboard has the support to integrate third-party tools and services, such as Amazon S3, HipChat, Jabber, RabbitMQ, Slack, etc.
  • resyaboard: similar to Trello with a fairly simple and neat user interface, with the ability to import Trello data and therefore it is very attractive as an alternative as it is compatible. Furthermore, it does not need too many requirements for its installation ...
  • Taiga: it is a software composed of three parts, the back-end, front-end and events. Each one has its own functionalities to train to give its service.
  • Wekan: Finally there is also this other alternative to Trello, built with Meteor, a JavaScript framework for creating web applications. There are different ways to install it, but perhaps the best is to make use of the existing web hosting that supports it.
