    Thanks for writing this.

    I have added and removed about 4 million lines of code:


    to WeKan Open Source kanban:


    You are not dumb. It is normal to feel frustrated, when figuring out, step by step, how something works, and what to do. It is like labyrinth. Having enough breaks, taking a walk when needed, having enough coping skills or adding more of them, having patience to keep notes of what is current position in that rabbit hole. If some way does not work, try some other way.

    It is always about the basics. Many programming languages change syntax often. Some dependencies change.

    For example, when writing some for database export:

    1) There was no working code examples at documentation

    2) Google etc searches had old info, did not work

    3) I did not find from source code how it did work

    4) ChatGPT, Bing AI etc examples did not work

    5) So I tried with trial and error, what is correct syntax, character by character

    For some error messages, sometimes Google search shows somebody having same problem, or even a fix. But if not, it's about reading source code of the software.

    But this works when code is available, like in Open Source.

    If something is binary executeable, then there is need to decompile, read assembler, deobfuscate, etc. That means even more required, I have not gone there yet. That is why I use and develop FOSS, when it is possible to more easily fix something, when it is broken.

    Hi Wekan,

    looks cool but IHMO suffers from confusing documentation and onramp.

    It took me multiple attempts, days apart, after initially stumbling upon this comment to get a better sense of it.

    The project homepage (https://wekan.github.io/) stresses the different installers but at that point I didn't know if I want to install it or not.

    Clicking on the Features link (https://wekan.github.io/#features) just takes you a few lines down on the same page which doesn't tell you much.

    I tried to find a link to the Github repo but that wasn't obvious either. Eventually I stumbled upon it by following the Docs and API links at the bottom but those are very small and hidden compared to the rest of the content on the page.

    From the Docs wiki there is a much better list of Features (https://github.com/wekan/wekan/wiki#:~:text=Calendar-,Featur...) that tells me more of what I was looking for.

    However, I still don't know what database backends are supported or how configurable those are which I need to know in order to assess my backup strategy and how much work it will be for me to maintain this for our intranet site.

    When I was evaluating open source Kanban recently I found WeKan had the closest REST API compatibility with Trello:

    Deck is very minimal and not really suited for anything beyond simple, personal stuff, in my opinion. As far as self-hosted, my favorite is still Kanboard, which has a lot of plugins and themes to choose from. Leantime is good too and a bit different. I also like Vikunja and Wekan.

    Have a look at Kanboard. For Android it can be used with kandroid (available on F-Droid). There is also WeKan with official app on Google Play Store
