Kanban task management web app
In this project, you'll build a fully-functional task management app with a light/dark mode toggle. We provide a JSON file, so you can practice working with JSON data.
- Sketch and Figma design files
- Mobile, tablet & desktop layouts
- Professional design system for colors, fonts, etc
- Optimized image assets
- README file to help you get started
- HTML file with pre-written content
Your challenge is to build out this task management app and get it looking as close to the design as possible.
You can use any tools you like to help you complete the challenge. So if you've got something you'd like to practice, feel free to give it a go.
We provide the data in a local
data.json file, so use that to populate the content on the first load. If you want to take it up a notch, feel free to build this as a full-stack application!
Your users should be able to:
- View the optimal layout for the app depending on their device's screen size
- See hover states for all interactive elements on the page
- Create, read, update, and delete boards and tasks
- Receive form validations when trying to create/edit boards and tasks
- Mark subtasks as complete and move tasks between columns
- Hide/show the board sidebar
- Toggle the theme between light/dark modes
- Bonus: Allow users to drag and drop tasks to change their status and re-order them in a column
- Bonus: Keep track of any changes, even after refreshing the browser (
localStoragecould be used for this if you're not building out a full-stack app)
- Bonus: Build this project as a full-stack application

Download the starter code
Set up the project with version control (e.g. Git)
README.mdfile and have a look around the project
Get colors, fonts, etc from the design system in the design file
Set up your project/file architecture however you want
Ideas to test yourself
Build the project out as a full-stack application
Train your eye for detail by getting your solution as close to the design as you can
Try estimating the time it will take for you to build the project. Then see if the time taken matches up to your estimate. Project estimations are a skill that is often overlooked but is important for professional developers
Can I use libraries/frameworks on these projects?
Yes! Our challenges provide professional designs but there are no rules on what tools to use. So feel free to use anything you like to build your projects.
How can I get help if I'm stuck on a challenge?
The best (and quickest) way to get help on a challenge is in our Slack community. There are thousands of other developers in there, so it's a great place to ask questions. We even have a dedicated "help" channel! If you haven't joined yet, you can get an invite to our Slack community here.
Can I use these projects in my portfolio?
Definitely! Please do feel free to use whatever you build in your portfolio. Helping developers add professional-looking projects to their portfolio was one of the reasons we created this platform!
Is there an official solution I can take a look at?
We don't provide "official" solutions for the challenges. This is because there is no single perfect way to complete a challenge. Instead, you're encouraged to review other people's code in the community. You can learn so much by seeing how other people have approached the same challenges and giving them feedback.
Do I get a code review when I post my solution?
Frontend Mentor is a collaborative learning community where everyone can give feedback to each other. If you'd like to receive feedback from the community, please be sure to post a question when you submit your solution. The more specific you can be, the better. Being clear with your questions means you're much more likely to receive valuable feedback from others.
How do I submit my solution?
Can I use these challenges within my own free or commercial content/tutorials/projects?
How often are new challenges added?
We launch a new challenge every two weeks. We alternate between free and premium challenge launches, so we launch one free and one premium challenge each month.
