Current platforms where Wekan runs:

What kind of machines and how many do you expect to use (see:

Servers at Europe, Amsterdam.

Type 3, Type 1E and Type 2A

  1. Type 3:
  1. Type 1E:
  • Trying to build Proxmox LXC version of Wekan. Wekan is usually built on Debian 8.9 or Ubuntu 14.04.
  1. Type 2A:
  • Trying to build ARM version of Wekan. Debian 8 or 9, depending what is available.

Other uses:

  • Building VirtualBox images etc for Wekan releases, like I currently do on my laptop and have release at
  • Building and testing with crosscloud to multiple clouds
  • Add more tests and have building for different platforms work for every new pull request and commit, having results integrated to GitHub
  • Add more platforms and tests for them like Ubuntu LXD, install scripts to various operating systems

What OS and networking are you planning to use (see:


Please state your contributions to the open source community and any other relevant initiatives

I have 920 contributions to various repos at GitHub in the last year:

I'm maintainer of Wekan, 444 commits:

I have helped to keep Wekan alive, by continuing Wekan in a fork, and got a chance to merge it back:

How will this testing advance cloud native computing (specifically containerization, orchestration, microservices or some combination).

Wekan has many integrations coming with IFTTT with Huginn or Flogo, Gogs git repo hosting, etc at Integrations wiki page.

For these, advancement is in having Docker Compose script and other ways to orchestrate on various public and private cloud platforms, easy ways make more integrations, and easy deployment and management of Wekan and other integrated Open Source software.

Wekan wiki press page has link to Hacker News article where someone did say that they use Wekan to store confidential patient data in Wekan, so Wekan is mission critical for some.

Any other relevant details we should know about while preparing the infrastructure?

I have worked as SysAdmin and AWS Cloud Architect, so most things I could probably be able to setup myself, though help is very welcome, like in setting up Triton, Proxmox etc environments. If you have some example Terraform or Ansible scripts to help with setting up various different environments, it would help.

For Google Cloud, I currently don't know how to enable websockets so Wekan works. I also have not tried Wekan yet at Azure. More about this at Platforms wiki page.

It would be nice to have at least ARM server for trying to build Wekan.

Wekan has already gained some performance fixes.

I started x64 server. It's so nice how fast it compiles Wekan and Sandstorm compared to my laptop 👍 This really speeds up development :)
