Standard for Public Code

WeKan and Standard for Public Code assessment was made at 2023-11. Currently WeKan meets 8 out of 16 criteria out of the box. Some others could be met with small changes.

Self-hosted option

One of the biggest advantages of WeKan is its self-hosting option, which gives you full control over your data, better security, greater customization options, cost-effectiveness, long-term viability, and can help you ensure that your data is not being accessed or shared without your knowledge.

Access controls

WeKan allows you to set up access controls to limit who can see and edit your boards and cards. You can set permissions at the board level or for individual users, which helps you control who has access to sensitive data.

Required: At least Daily Backups of WeKan MongoDB database with mongodump, and settings. Upcoming: Minio and SQLite. Bugs, updates, users deleting list or card, harddrive full, harddrive crash etc can eat your data. There is no undo yet. Only newest WeKan is supported. Please report all new bugs immediately. Sandstorm WeKan is rarely affected by any Standalone WeKan security issues. If you use Standalone WeKan on public Internet, it's better use Snap x64 automatic updates and restore from backup when needed, than to leave old vulnerable manually updated WeKan running.
