Wekan - Kanban board


#1

Hi,
I’m maintainer of Wekan https://wekan.github.io

Would it be possible to:

  • Use Rocket.Chat login options to login to Wekan too, with all auth methods Rocket.Chat provides
  • Use Rocket.Chat user management options to manage also Wekan users
  • Have Wekan Admin Panel options in Rocket.Chat admin panel
  • Show Wekan board as one option on left slider menu, below chat channels, with configurable name, like Board or Project
  • Have Wekan in Rocket.Chat mobile app similarly as one of views, like Chats / Boards / Settings etc.

Any info and links to documentation and examples welcome.

Rocket.Chat Apps are pretty new. Actually not even fully out of alpha :slight_smile: So not everything that will be possible has yet been completed.

I believe its planned to allow login methods to be added by Rocket.Chat Apps.

Rocket.Chat does offer an oauth server built in also. So its possible wekan could be configured to login with rocket.chat oauth?

I’m not sure about this one. This would mean they were very tightly integrated. Such integration may be hard with an app. This would almost require sharing same DB which definitely goes beyond an app.

But if enough api’s were available i’m sure it could happen.

I’m sure some settings could be exposed via an apps settings.

I’m not sure if that exact type of extensibility is planned to be allowed… But the contextual bar on the right side we do plan to allow adding custom content.

The intention would also be to allow as much as we can to happen on mobile too. As you might know our apps have been rewritten into native apps. So having very strictly defined areas that can be extended is critical to allowing it to work on mobile.

@xet7 Thanks for your interest! I think this will be an ideal app to make sure our re-design and update in this area is “industry quality” and ready for production-grade apps.

@rodrigo.nascimento is it possible to work with @xet7 to make sure we can make Wekan an “app” ? :thinking:

As we are using Rocket.Chat as well as Wekan, this would be a great addition to our workflows. So I will add a big +1 and some feedback for the integration.

@xet7 A good start for the integration without big work would be more options for the webhooks, in which cases they fire, so we can select which notifications are important to see in rocketchat, which one are not.

My current roadmap is

  1. Getting login working.

For Rocket.Chat with Auth0 working.

For Wekan with OAuth2.

This is because there is existing WordPress website with Auth0, and I’m trying to embed Wekan and Rocket.Chat there in iframe.

  1. If I get above working, I can look at other integrations.

I just don’t know does iframe work, there are also other questions in forum:
