Academic Kanban

Project description


Acanban is an academic Kanban board. It aims to provide a collaboration platform for students and mentors, with first-class support for academic evaluation.


Acanban runs on Python 3.7+ and requires RethinkDB and IPFS 0.7 or above.


The development version of Acanban can be installed from this git repository:

python -m pip install git+

Acanban can then be evoked via python -m acanban. In production, it is typical to run it as a systemd service, configured like followed.

Description=The Acanban Server

ExecStart=/path/to/venv/bin/python -m acanban



Acanban's configuration files are looked for in user and site config dir (in that order), with acanban namespace.

With third-party configuration separated to dedicated files, acanban.toml may define the following keys:

# Used for HTTP to HTTPS redirection if defined
domain = ''


Hypercorn configuration is loaded from hypercorn.toml. Acanban does not override any of the server's defaults.


Values defined in rethinkdb.toml will be passed to the RethinkDB client. Below are some of the fields that commonly need to be configured and their default values:

host = 'localhost'
port = 28015
user = 'admin'
timeout = 20
db = 'test'


Custom ipfs.toml must define the following keys, whose default values are listed as follows:

base = ''

base = ''
fallback = ''


First clone the repository and install Acanban as editable:

git clone
cd acanban
python -m pip install flit
flit install --symlink

After playing around with the source code, one can use tox to test the modified version:

python -m pip install tox
