David (path) Docker Pulls GitHub

A Trello-like kanban board built with React and Redux.

Client demo (without server features).


  • Create projects, boards, lists, cards, labels and tasks
  • Add card members, track time, set a due date, add attachments, write comments
  • Markdown support in a card description and comment
  • Filter by members and labels
  • Customize project background
  • Real-time updates
  • User notifications
  • Internationalization


Current task

Projects should have Managers who have the ability to create/edit/delete boards. Boards should have their own Members, so members won't see all boards, just those they belong to. Planka will be released after this breaking change.

Future tasks

  • Fetch last data after reconnection
  • Custom fields
  • Public boards
  • Automatic actions


Please note that Planka is NOT released yet, API and database structure may be changed!

Docker Compose

  • Make sure you have Docker and Docker Compose installed and operational.
  • Create docker-compose.yml based on the example. This is the ONLY file you will need. You can create this file on your own machine by copy and pasting the content.
  • Edit BASE_URL to match your domain name or IP address.
  • Edit SECRET_KEY with random value. You can generate it by openssl rand -hex 64.

Download the docker-compose.yml:

curl -L https://raw.githubusercontent.com/plankanban/planka/master/docker-compose.yml -o docker-compose.yml

Pull images and start services:

docker-compose up -d
