Trying the Taiga project management platform

If you love Agile and looking for a tool to integrate that method into your org, you should try Taiga:

https://taiga.io/

Taiga is an open-sourced project management platform based on Django and AngularJS which are both also open-sourced. It's really easy to get started with Taiga using vagrant thanks to the team:

https://github.com/taigaio/taiga-vagrant

All you have to do are (you need to have VirtualBox and Vagrant installed on your machine first):

$ git clone https://github.com/taigaio/taiga-vagrant.git
$ cd taiga-vagrant
$ vagrant up

After the provisioning is finished, you can access the platform by opening your browser, enter this address:

http://localhost:8000

The default admin user is admin / 123123

If the vagrant provisioning does not process successfully, you can have a look at the script:

https://github.com/taigaio/taiga-vagrant/blob/master/scripts/provision.sh

The provision script will clone this taigao-scripts repo and run the setup-server.sh:

https://github.com/taigaio/taiga-scripts.git

https://github.com/taigaio/taiga-scripts/blob/master/setup-server.sh

So, go into the virtual machine :

$ cd taiga-vagrant
$ vagrant ssh

and produce the installation step by step... until everything is installed correctly.


Here are some screenshots of the Taiga platform:
