This is an open-source, pure JS library that allows us to create and manage a Kanban page in our project with ease. The library is built on top of dragula drag & drop API. The product has a really nice API and documentation and seems to be very active if we take into account the Github project commits for the last 6mo.
A simple Kanban app, fully coded in Django and React. The product is licensed under the MIT schema and source code is available for download on Github.
React Frontend - The product has a nice and minimalist UI built with Material UI and Emotion, Typescript, React Components, Redux, and react-beautiful-dnd library.
Backend Server - The API that empowers this project is built in Django, DRF library for the API interface, PostgreSQL for persistence, and Django built-in ORM for data query.
This project, also built with React and Django, comes with a simple UI where all elements (boards, columns, cards) are created using modal controls. The public repository seems untouched since 2018 without active issues opened or PRs.
