About Scrumboard

Scrumboard is a software project management system aimed at teaching Scrum. It aims to be a useful tool for educational institutions, non-profit or otherwise, teaching software engineering classes.

The intent of Scrumboard is to implement a reasonably pure version of Scrum. That said, every instance of Scrum entails choices of how work is recorded, estimated, organized, and so on, so we've had to make some decisions about how to implement some dimensions of Scrum. More on this below.

What Scrumboard is Not

Scrumboard is not intended for commercial use. In it present state it doesn't have the power and flexibility to accommodate the many work styles encountered in enterprise software engineering.

Setting Up

After cloning the repository, install the dependencies with npm install.

Development server

Before running, you'll need to set up some environment variables (shown here with default values):


The value 'domain', 'clientId', and 'audience' relate to Auth0 authentication. You'll need to set up an account there to use authentication as-is.

Run npm run config && ng s for a dev server. Navigate to http://localhost:4200/. The app will automatically reload if you change any of the source files.


API authentication to the backend (project sb-rails) is JWT-based. Currently the only auth option is through Auth0. It's easy to set up a free account with them, but you can substitute other options if you like. Feel free to contribute your auth alternatives!

Setting up Authentication

See the README at sb-rails for most of the instructions. After setting up the application in Auth0, you can create a .env file in the sb-angular root folder to hold your application information.

For example: 
clientId=######################## from the application you set up on Auth0
audience=<The API Audience you set up on Auth0>

NOTE: You should add .env to .gitignore if it's not there already. Your environment variables should not be committed to version control.


For this project to be useful, you'll also need to clone and run sb-rails. More information about setting up Scrumboard can be found in the README there.
