Project management with that great wobbly taste. (Trello clone)

Djello is a full-stack React/Redux and Node/Express.js project management application. Built on top of a PostgreSQL database.

View the deployed app on Surge (API powered by Heroku) here.


Djello was a project assigned to the students of Viking Code School. The goal of which is to recreate the features and functionality of the popular app Trello. Djello is split into two separate applications. The first is a front-end SPA built with React, Redux, React-Router and Bootstrap 4 (Reactstrap). The second is a Node/Express.js back-end JSON API that provides end-points to query the Postgres database. Features include the creation and in-place editing of boards, lists, cards, assignment of other members to cards to complete tasks, and card activity feeds.
