Wunderlist plugin for Kanboard

This plugin allow you to import Wunderlist tasks and lists directly from the user interface of Kanboard by uploading a Wunderlist export file. It is the successor of this script.

Don't forget that Microsoft, which acquired Wunderlist back in 2015, will shut down Wunderlist at an unkown date. Migrate your tasks as soon as possible. More information: https://techcrunch.com/2017/04/19/microsoft-to-shut-down-wunderlist-in-favor-of-its-new-app-to-do/

How it works

Kanboard and Wunderlist are very different, so there's some things to know about what happens to your tasks and lists in certain cases:

  • Lists and folders are imported as projects
  • The default Kanboard's columns are created for each imported projects (according to your Kanboard configuration)
  • If a task is tagged as completed on Wunderlist, it will be tagged as closed on Kanboard
  • Public lists are imported with public access active (otherwise no)
  • Starred tasks will have a color of red, otherwise yellow
  • Notes are imported as task description
  • Tasks are created in the default column / swimlane of each projects

All the other data supported by Kanboard is imported with no problems.


  • This plugin may broke if you update Kanboard. If so, please submit an issue
