ZenHub is the first and only project management suite that works natively within GitHub. The learning curve is non-existent, the design is seamlessly integrated, and it's extremely reliable. As a former Trello user, the transition to ZenHub was a breeze. It features the same linear layout, and drag and drop capabilities; and instead of 'cards', you just add/manage the "issues" you have already created in GitHub. I still love Trello, but ZenHub is just a superior product in my opinion for day-to-day project management, specifically relating to development. The pricing is very reasonable and it's free for open source and personal projects. As a huge proponent of open-source development, that means a lot to me. ZenHub is used by companies like Microsoft, Facebook, Sony, NBC News, and more. Finally, the team over at ZenHub is wonderfully transparent and helpful. They are fast to reply to questions and feedback and are dedicated to the continual improvement of their product.
Overall, there isn't much bad that I have to say about ZenHub, and I'm having a hard time trying to come up with cons. The only thing I can thing of is, there isn't much room for customization potential as far as aesthetics. They really try to keep consistent with the standard look and feel of GitHub. That could be a downside if customization is a must for you. Also keep in mind, the product is relatively new so if you're expecting something with a thousand crazy features, ZenHub doesn't have them (yet). But, they are adding new features/updates very regularly and discussing them over at their blog.
- Less time spent trying to figure out where we are with certain tasks.
- Being able to press "b" anytime while on GitHub to access your workflow, is much easier and faster than trying to hassle with a separate program in a different browser tab.
- It also makes things really easy to stay organized with fellow team members who are working from a different office or at home.
