Vikunja consists of two parts: API and frontend.
You will always need to install at least the API. To actually use Vikunja you’ll also need to somehow install a frontend to use it. You can either:
- Install the web frontend
- Use the desktop app, which is essentially a web frontend packaged for easy installation on desktop devices
- Use the mobile app only, but as of right now it only supports the very basic features of Vikunja
Vikunja can be installed in various ways. This document provides an overview and instructions for the different methods.
