what is it

scrumblr is a web-based simulation of a physical agile sprint 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 and firefox browsers. enable websockets for optimal performance. tested mainly on chrome for osx. this was not designed for browser support. use chrome for this app.

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 v2.2.2
  • install node.js >= 0.4.1
  • install npm
  • install these npm packages:
    • async
    • express
    • jade
    • redis-client
    • redis
    • sanitizer
    • simplesets
    • connect-redis
    • (and perhaps more which you will notice when you try to start it)
  • now start redis ($ redis-server)
  • now start ($ node server.js 80) where "80" is the port you want it to run on.
