It is a single page JavaScript application with very basic functionality.

Upgrading from the previous version? No problem. You can completely remove old files and unpack new version. Your Personal Kanban will still be there when you open the application.

There is no need to be connected to Internet to use it. You can run it in any modern browser. The application will store your data in Web Browser's local storage, so you will not loose it.

I've tested the application in Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Opera.

You should be able to create multiple Kanban boards with 2,3,4 and 6 columns, name columns, select columns colour and delete kanban.

If there is a specific Kanban board that you like and use all the time, you can use it as a template to create a new one. Just select Kanban to use as a template from a dropdown list.

You can add cards to columns and drag them between columns and up and down as well as remove them. Once the card is in the last column you can move it to Archive. Archive is browsable from Kanban menu.

Application persists Kanban boards in local browser storage. Unfortunatelly storage is not shared between different browsers. Thats why same page opened in different browsers will not have the same Kanban content.

If you need you can export content of one or all Kanbans into a JSON file.

Latest version of Kanban will also let you import previously exported Kanban. Alternatively you can handcraft JSON or write a migration script to import from other tools (eg. Jira or Trello).

A bit of history

I started this little project 2 years ago when I decided to familiarise myself with HTML5, Pure JavaScript and CSS.

I used jQuery with QUnit for JavaScript TDD testing.

I managed to get it to a workable state and stop developing it.

After first public release not too long ago, I decided to rewrite it in Angular.

This application is the result of me doing so, while attempting to learn Angular at the same time :)
