Welcome to my mono repo madClones. Started as a small monolith project to build a trello clone, it turned out to be the best project I ever started: it is basically my playground and I have lots of fun with it.

You will not only see a wide variety of front end technologies and a couple of microservices written in different languages and frameworks, but also an emphasis on software design and architecture.

I am a fan of Software Craftsmanship, TDD, BDD and CI practices; therefore this project's main goal is to follow all the coding standard and best practices.

Do no hesitate to contribute and/or send me feedback on twitter.


Version 1.0.0

  • Create a team and add boards in it or directly add them in your personal boards.
  • Star and unstar all your boards.

Version 2.0.0

  • Card view that allows to add cards, card items
  • Move card items between cards.

Version 3.0.0

  • Boards menu. The user clicks on the boards button available in the header and can see all the boards (starred, personal and organisations) previously created.

Version 4.0.0

  • Client: Fix the boards menu filter Fix cards view not rendering correctly when it updates Update board name and star it from the cards view

  • Server: Users microservice that handles authentication (signin: validates user and generate token, signup, signout, signcheck: validates token). Trello microservice that handles boards and cards. Deploy microservices with kubernetes on google cloud. Add continuous integration with travis

Where to get help

ES6: if you want to quickly be up to date with javascript best practices, AirBNB repo is a gold mine. Read it.

React: AirBnB and RisingStack

NodeJS: again I will redirect you to RisingStack. They are awesome and they care about open source.

CodinGame: practicing your algorithm solving skills is a great way to write better code. CodinGame will push you to another level by making you think about the correct data structure, api and algorithm, to use.


React Trello Board: I used their implementation of React Drag and Drop because it is great

Contribution guidelines

  1. Start with the open issues
  2. No direct commit on master or develop.
  3. Create a branch from develop with issue number as a name. Example: TOC I#1 (TOC = Trello Clone and I = issue)
  4. Code should be accompanied with unit tests with 100% code coverage (whether it is on the client side or the server side).
  5. Make a pull request.
  6. End to end testing are not required for now.

Areas for Improvements / involvement

  • Add a white background color to each board section (star, user and users)
  • Work on board header in home page : list boards and create features
  • Make UI responsive

Repository structure

The repository is divided into two folders. The Client which contains a react and a vue application and the Server which contains microservices.

I am very happy with the way both applications are structured and working daily to improve on it.
