LeanKit Kanban API & Wrappers

As we mentioned in an earlier post, our customers have integrated LeanKit with many different kinds of systems. And we provide services to develop integrations if you don’t have the time or inclination to do this yourself. But, if you do want to develop your own integration, read this article about our API in the LeanKit Knowledge Base.

Our customers have initiated the following publicly-available wrappers. If you know of another one please let us know so we can share the information! And if you want to start another wrapper and share it with the world, we’ll make sure to publicize your work. There’s a large (40,000+ users and growing very quickly) audience for LeanKit so it should get you some attention.

And, if you develop a general purpose integration to another popular SaaS product and are willing to share that integration code with your fellow LeanKit customers, we may be able to offset your development cost by trading you for a credit toward your LeanKit subscription. Contact us for details.
