This project aims to provide a easy way to mirror your printable projects into Taiga for you to easily manage and track the progress of several ideas. It creates a new User Story for each printable project and attaches the first photo of it to provide a nice preview in the Kanban board. In addition it creates a new "Task" for each stl-file and attaches the stl-file to it.


  1. Setup your new project on your Taiga instance
  2. Create a user for the importer with a very strong password
  3. Optional: Create a "User Story Custom Field" in your project settings to preserve a backlink to the originally imported model


  1. Clone this project
  2. Create a virtual environment with e.g. virtualenv venv and activate it
  3. Install requirements with pip install -r requirements.txt
  4. Adjust config.ini to your needs
  5. Run python importer.py and provide a link when you get asked for it
