Install Restyaboard 1-click app through Linode Marketplace

Introduction

Restyaboard is an open-source alternative to Trello, but with smart additional features like offline sync, diff /revisions, nested comments, multiple view layouts, chat, and more. And since it is self-hosted, data, privacy, and IP security can be guaranteed.

Restyaboard is more like an electronic sticky note for organizing tasks and todos. Apart from this, it is ideal for Kanban, Agile, Gemba board and business process/workflow management. It can be extended with productive plugins

Today, several universities, automobile companies, government organizations, etc from across Europe take advantage of Restyaboard.

  8. Choose which plan you’d like to use under the Linode Plan section. Your plan specifies the hardware resources assigned to your server. The resources that you need are determined by the requirements of your app. Linode’s plans are split into four types: Shared, Dedicated CPU, High Memory, and GPU.

  9. Create a label and (optionally) select tags for your Linode. The label is your Linode’s name and must be unique among all the Linodes on your account. Tags are used to organize your Linodes within the Cloud Manager.

  12. Once your Linode has been created, the Cloud Manager will then start to deploy your app in the background. This will take several minutes. Once your app has been deployed it will be available at the IP address of the Linode you created. If you visit your IP address before the app is ready, try again a few minutes later.
