I did spent some time adding new feature requested by my Wife. Links, in card details field, are now supported as real HTTP links, which could be opened. I did remodel slightly the Kanban Card dialog to support that.
The other new feature is the possibility of changing look of Kanban. The feature comes with easy way of adding own styles.
You can get a copy of the software here: http://greggigon.github.io/my-personal-kanban/
The video bellow is a quick overview of the new features.
How to update My Personal Kanban with your own styles
- You need to create a css file with styles and copy it into: my-personal-kanban-folder/styles/themes/ folder. Name doesn’t matter, however you will need to use this name in last step. The default-bright.css and default-dark.css can be used as a starting point for your own styles.
- Prepare image capture for the new style and place it in my-personal-kanban-folder/img/themes/ folder. It should be a jpg no bigger than 150px in width with the same name as the css file (you can see that there are default-bright.jpg and default-dark.jpg in that folder already).
- Last step is to open the themes.js file from my-personal-kanban-folder/scripts/ folder (it will have a funny name like 5ebce75f.themes.js ) and add entry for your new theme. Name is the property that will be displayed in the Drop down. css is the property that will be used to find the css and jpg file prepared in steps 1 and 2.
If you want me to make the style a permanent member of My Personal Kanban, just make a pull request on GitHub. https://github.com/greggigon/my-personal-kanban

Greg, your Personal Kanban standalone is great, clean and simple. Exactly what I’m looking for. But swimlanes would be great. You ever considered that? Thx again for this nice tool. Greetings, Gordon
Thanks that you are liking it. There are more features coming to it. I will now consider Swimlanes as well 🙂
thanks for this tool – I’m a big fan of trello, but for my personal work kanban, I can’t use cloud services due to company restrictions; this is just perfect. I also like that I can have color-coded cards without a taxonomy, for my personal use I know what color means what.
