Kanban Tasker

A Windows 10 Universal Windows Platform (UWP) application for a simple personal kanban board, used as a workflow visualization tool and allows dragging of individual tasks and multiple project boards with syncing to OneDrive.

Kanban Tasker Details

Created with C#/XAML and the Windows 10 Universal Windows Platform. The UI is created with Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) and backend is using C#.

*New Screenshots Coming Soon

Uses a kanban control created by Syncfusion fully customized to Kanban Taskers style (see corresponding data templates in BoardView.xaml, and App.xaml). Also implemented with a Sqlite database to store the tasks/boards and uses create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) operations against the database.

Available in the microsoft store: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9NMKTDZ3L9LQ

Getting Started

Developing & Debugging

The program requires a license from Syncfusion to debug since the Kanban Control is a control used by them, but they provide a free community license here: https://www.syncfusion.com/products/communitylicense

Generate a key for the UWP controls and head to App.xaml.cs and add your key into the string "YOUR_API_KEY".

Database generated by sqlite

You can view the .db file generated by sqlite with https://sqlitebrowser.org/

  • The database file, .db, will be located in your Users->AppData (Make sure hidden items is on)->Local->Packages->(Search for db name)
    • The database name is ktdatabase.db
    • All database work is handled and located located in DataProvider.cs
  • Sqlite Browser should open automatically to your user profile. Navigate to View and select the checkbox to view Hidden Items so that App Data will show (if not showing already)

Prerequisites

Due to the requirements for certain Windows 10 effects and controls used, the minimum version required to debug and run the application is 1809

Minimum version: Windows 10, Version 1809

Target Version: Windows 10, Version 1903

Nuget Packages Required:

  • Microsoft Sqlite should be installed on your system by default. So, the nuget package "Microsoft.Data.Sqlite" or "Microsoft.Data.Sqlite.Core" will work

  • SQLitePCLRaw.bundle_winsqlite3

  • Syncfusion.SfKanban.UWP package should be installed

  • Tutorial on these installations can be found on microsoft docs here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/data-access/sqlite-databases
