Introducing Fluxo a Kanban dashboard for Trello Boards

Last week I introduced my latest “commute from and to work” project called TrellBan here.

So I received a very kind but to the point email from the Trello support team last night telling me that the name TrellBan was to close to Trello.

A bit surprised but at the same time somewhat flattered I began the hard work to come up with a really great new name for this open source project.

Fluxo means flow in portuguese (my mother tongue) and I think it is a short and easy enough name to remember.

So TrellBan is disontinued as of now and the replacement Fluxo is still an open source project that you can find here:

The latest release of the Fluxo can be found here:

Ord mitt i livet, en hälsning till mamma

Att mata den som matat dig, att torka den som torkat dig och att natta den som vaggat dig till söms.

Det kallas för att cirkeln sluts och att livet har sin stilla gång. Men känslan som sköljer över mig är inte av värme och skratt utan en abyss av tomhet där jag faller, en känsla av att tryggheten sakta rinner ifrån mig.

Men så till slut igår så tar jag modet till mig, stannar upp och tar några djupa andetag och ser mig omkring. Denna gång med andra ögon.

Runt mig och mamma sitter härliga människor, fulla av minnen och skratt. Demensboendet är som ett dagis fast utan lämning och hämtning.

Det är redan lunchtid och vanligtvis brukar jag åka men jag stannar kvar fylld av nyfunnen nyfikenhet. Jag hjälper mamma och när lunchen är klar går jag försiktigt med henne till sängen. Hon har blivit mycket stel.

I samma ögonblick som jag böjer mig ner för att pussa mammas panna så ser jag hennes barnsligt busiga blick och hon skrattar. Skrattet smittar av sig.

Tryggheten värmer igen och det är dags att gå.

Fuck you alzheimers!

Älskar dig mamma.

I’ve a lot of time between home and work every day because I live about 30 km from Stockholm in a suburb called Vallentuna.

That gives me about 1 hour of commute every day where I can sit with my laptop and hack stuff without disturbing anyone else.

I’ve been doing this for 1½ year since I’ve paused my usual “coach” consultant role and gone back to being a simple “web developer”.
Of course as I’m often the senior web developer in a team :) I tend to do some coaching anyway but not the type of coaching I used to do that is coaching entire teams.

OK, so since the end of November 2014 our team at Fritidsresor (TUI Nordic) has been doing this new cool thing called Mob Programming.
That deserves a completely other blog post that I might write someday. (ooooh a cliffhanger)

Mob programming and the fact that one of our team members was going to work remotely made us switch from a physical Kanban board to Trello.
Trello is really simple and nice but has one small drawback it doesn’t come with any Kanban statistics in the box.

Our team coach did a lot of research in this area and didn’t found any good free plugins for visualizing Kanban statistics from Trello.
He did find Screenful (http://www.screenful.me/screenful-for-trello/) which is awesome but unfourtunately it isn’t free.

So I got the idea to make this my new “while I’m commuting from and to work” project.

The project is called Fluxo TrellBan and is completely open source, you can find the source code at https://github.com/hugohaggmark/Fluxo https://github.com/hugohaggmark/TrellBan/ and
the lastest working release of TrellBan can be found at http://fluxo.herokuapp.com/ http://trellban.herokuapp.com/.

If you want to get at glimpse of what the dashboard actually looks like (with dummy data) you can see a demo at http://fluxo.herokuapp.com/demo/ http://trellban.herokuapp.com/demo/.

I hope you enjoy Fluxo TrellBan,
