what is it

scrumblr is a web-based simulation of a physical agile kanban board that supports real-time collaboration. it is built using node.js, websockets (using, CSS3, and jquery. i hope you like it.

use scrumblr

if you'd like to use scrumblr go to new boards are made simply by modifying the url to something unique. e.g. your team could use a shared board at:

alternatively, you can follow the instructions below to setup scrumblr yourself. it is very simple -- it just uses redis and node.js.

if you are a developer, please fork and submit changes/fixes.

browser support

scrumblr works on up to date chrome browsers. tested mainly on chrome for osx.

design philosophy

my goal was to avoid buttons and ui (almost everything is edit in place or draggable). everything should be discoverable (no "help"). the look is meant to be as close as possible to's real sprint board. see picture below. many of the decisions were to make the app look and feel as much as possible like's real sprint board -- you may find this annoying but we find it kinda funny.

how to install and run on your own computer (linux/osx)

  • install redis (last tested on v6.0.9)
  • install node.js (last tested on v13.11.0)
  • install npm
  • cd to the scrumblr directory; you should see server.js and other files.
  • run npm install
  • run redis redis-server (this will run forever, so open a new terminal for the next steps, or learn how to run redis as a daemon)
  • run scrumblr node server.js --server:port=80 where "80" is the port you want scrumblr to run on. it defaults to 8080
  • open a browser to http://<server>:<port> where <server> is your server's url or IP address, and <port> is the port you chose in the previous step. e.g. `http://yourwebserver:8080/
