Setup

Manual setup

  1. Clone this repository
    $ git clone https://github.com/SrGMC/kanbana.git
  2. Navigate to the cloned repo directory
    $ cd kanbana
  3. Install dependencies
    $ npm install
  4. Start the server
    $ npm run

A server will start at port 3000.
You can change the port and cache time two ways:

  • CLI Arguments (takes priority)
    • -p <port>
    • -c <cache time> (in minutes).
  • Environment variables
    • PORT=<port>
    • CACHE=<cache time> (in minutes).

Docker setup

docker run

docker run \
-p 3000:3000 \
-v "$PWD/boards:/usr/src/app/boards" \
-v "$PWD/images:/usr/src/app/images" \
-v "$PWD/labels.css:/usr/src/app/assets/labels.css" \
srgmc/kanbana

This command will start the container and mount $PWD/boards and $PWD/images inside it, so you can add images and boards. If you do not want to customize labels.css, remove -v "$PWD/labels.css:/usr/src/app/assets/labels.css" from the command.

Docker compose

version: "3"
services:
    kanbana:
        environment:
            PORT: 3000      # Optional
            CACHE: 10       # Optional, in minutes
        image: srgmc/kanbana
        ports:
            - "3000:3000"   # If PORT is changed, this must be changed too
        volumes:
            - "/path/to/boards:/usr/src/app/boards"
            - "/path/to/images:/usr/src/app/images"
            - "/path/to/labels.css:/usr/src/app/assets/labels.css" # Optional

Usage

How to create boards

  1. Create a file in the ./boards directory.
  2. Add the following content:
---
"name": "Kanbana",
"picture": "none"
---

# Headers
* [UI] Labels
* [1h] Timers
* [25m] [UI] Labels and timers
* [ ] Uncompleted task
* [x] Completed task

# Markdown
* **Bold**
* *Italic*
* `code`
  1. Acess your boards a http://<server ip>:<port>/board/<board name> or http://<server ip>:<port>/board/<board name>.md

Note:

  1. Each heading followed by a list will be converted to a card.
  2. You can create more than one board on the same page by duplicating the content above in the same file.

Header images

Header images can be used in three ways:

  1. none: Don't display any images
  2. /images/path-to-images.png: Add images to the images directory and fetch them from Kanbana's server
  3. https://example.com/example.png: Use an URL to fetch an external images

Example:

<!-- No image -->
---
"name": "Kanbana",
"picture": "none"
---

<!-- Internal image -->
---
"name": "Kanbana",
"picture": "/images/image.png"
---

<!-- External image -->
---
"name": "Kanbana",
"picture": "https://example.com/example.png"
---

Labels, timers and tasks

To add labels and timers, use:

<!-- Labels -->
[Title] [labels]

<!-- Timers -->
[2d] 2 days
[3h] 3 hours
[30m] 30 minutes

Using tasks is easy too:

[ ] Uncompleted task
[x] Completed task

Custom labels

Labels can be customized using CSS

To create custom labels, edit assets/labels.css. A custom label follows this sintax: .label--<label name>.

For example, to create a Help needed label with yellow color, create the class:

.label--help-needed {
    background-color: #ffd43b;
    color: #000;
}

and use the label

[help needed]
