In the last few weeks I have tried a software that was on my list for a long time: Wekan. Wekan is an open source alternative for Trello, a Kanban software. It allows you to manage projects or processes with the Kanban method. Some also use it as a task management system. There are several Open Source alternatives to Trello – Wekan is one that comes closest to the original. Today I want to show how to install and set up Wekan.


Wekan can be installed in different ways (manual, docker, snap, …). We will install it today in an LXD container (Ubuntu 18.04) (LXD containers have been a topic in this blog several times).

First we will create a container for Wekan:

After the container is created and started, we log in to the container:

We will install Wekan as a snap. In the Ubuntu LXD container snapd is already installed. So we can install Wekan directly with

Now we define the root URL and the port for Wekan:

Optionally, you can also set the updates to be installed automatically:

Done 🙂

Getting Started

Now we can call Wekan under the IP of our LXD container. If you are running LXD on a server instead of locally, it might be helpful to set up a network bridge for the container. Alternatively you can use Nginx as a reverse proxy. You can find hints for the setup in the Wiki of Wekan.

Shutdown computer, and write the recipe with pen and paper. Computer works by making series of steps, like when you are designing and cooking new kind of food, that is your special mix. You need to plan it first, or it does not taste good. Steps need to be as small as possible. Download Wekan for free. The open-source kanban. Wekan is a completely open source and free collaborative kanban board application. Kanban boards are an ideal tool for organizing things and ideas, and with Wekan you can get it free and private- simply install Wekan on your own computer or server.

Note: The first user we create is the administrator for Wekan.

We click on Register and create a new user.

Oct 27, 2016 Installing Wekan. First, we would normally create a wekan user: sudo adduser wekan. And then create a directory in that user's space to store Wekan-related data (so it survives updates to the Docker image): sudo -u wekan mkdir /home/wekan/public. Assuming you've got Docker installed properly, to install the official Wekan Docker image, you can. Wekan is available for x64 platforms like source install, Snap, Docker, VirtualBox Appliance, Sandstorm, and others. Screenshots of current and upcoming Wekan platforms. Wekan v1.00 was released 2018-05-22. More info and download at Wekan website. There is talk by Wekan author Maxime Quandalle at YouTube.

If we now click on Register, an error message (“Internal Server Error”) appears. This is because we have not yet set up an email server.

But Wekan also works without an email server, so we simply open our main page (wekan.example.com or the IP of the container) and can log in with the user we just created.

Now we can create new boards in these new lists and maps. The functionality is very similar to Trello.

If you are looking for an open source alternative for Trello that you can host yourself, Wekan is a good replacement. I have used Trello a lot so far. With Wekan I finally found a replacement that is pretty much a 1:1 replacement for Trello.
