  • A template library for issue content.
ZenHub is very well suited for an organization where the project teams run in an agile methodology and environment. ZenHub is also well suited if already using GitHub for source control. ZenHub is not well suited for a waterfall methodology organization, nor if team members are not expected to update their own progress in a tool like this.

If you have more than 2 developers this thing is basically a requirement within github to manage sprints if you use agile methodology. Why use a different website entirely when you can run your entire board right from github itself? I've tried other solutions but basing everything on github issues makes it so no duplicate work has to take place. If the UX quirks and mobile were fixed this would be 10/10 for me!

If you're only one or two devs on a team it may be overkill to use, but if you're going to scale it's better to put the process in early.
