Taiga is a free and open-source project management system for startups, Agile developers, and designers.[2] Its frontend is written in AngularJS and CoffeeScript; backend, in Django and Python.[3] Taiga is released under GNU Affero General Public License.[4]

Overview[edit]

Taiga is a project management application that can handle both simple and complex projects for startups, software developers, and other target teams. It tracks the progress of a project. With Taiga, you can use either Kanban or Scrum template, or both. Backlogs are shown as a running list of all features and User Stories added to the project.[5]

Taiga integrates video conferencing functions with the use of third party services from Talky.io and Appear.in.[6] Group and private chat is done via HipChat.[7]

The on-premise version of Taiga can be downloaded from its github repositories and used for free.

This project management system can interface with web-based version control repositories like GitHub and Bitbucket.[8] Taiga also provides several importers to facilitate migration from other proprietary software platforms.

Background[edit]

Origins[edit]

Taiga formally came with the creation of Taiga Agile, LLC in February 2014 that provided the formal structure for the Taiga project.[9] But its origins went back with the team at Kaleidos, a Madrid-based software company that initiated week-long hack-a-thons dedicated to personal improvement and prototyping of internal projects (of which Taiga was one).[10]

Awards[edit]

Taiga won the 2015 Most Valued Agile Tool awarded by the Agile Portal.[11] It's been cited as one of "Top 10 open source projects in 2014"[12] and "Top 11 project management tools for 2016"[13] by Opensource.com.
