Integrated GitHub project management with ZenHub


#1

Hi Everyone,

For those of you building software communities using GitHub, have you tried ZenHub?

It is essentially a project management tool that integrates pretty seamlessly into GitHub. It is similar in some ways to Waffle.io, but I find it integrates much more neatly and it fills some gaps that are really missing in GitHub.

It looks a little like this (note how integrated it is into GitHub’s core UI):

Here it provides your usual Kanban style view, which are mapped to issues.

You can also view milestones as burndown charts which I always find an incredibly useful tool:

Anyone tried it or use similar tools?

It looks like Trello, actually


#3

It is similar in some ways, but much more deeply integrated into GitHub.


#4

I’ve used ZenHub before. Was a pretty good tool. My problem was, since it’s browser plugin based, I lost all it’s tools when I was on my phone, or tablet, or happen to need to use Safari on OS X temporarily.


#5

Ahh, they don’t have ZenHub support for mobile devices?


#6

Not since the last time I used it. Full cross-platform support would definitely make me try it again. I don’t like working on a mobile device but sometimes when you’re in event season, you don’t have much choice.


#7

I entirely agree. I think there should at least be a way to view the content, if not write to it. Any Zenhubbers want to feed into this?


#8

Hi Jono, Matt from ZenHub here, completely agree with you re mobile access! Both Safari, web and mobile are coming soon (in that order!)

Here is a more up to date screenshot as well - we have progressed a lot since the one above :slight_smile:


#10

You must be using Google Alerts =)

Thanks for the info. Looking forward for those future platforms.

Nice! Keep up the great work! :slight_smile:

I realize this is an old thread now, but I haven’t found a better place that discussed ZH, I was wondering how mobile support was going? Cheers.
