A wrapper around the Trello API written in Python. Each Trello object is represented by a corresponding Python object. The attributes of these objects are cached, but the child objects are not. This can possibly be improved when the API allows for notification subscriptions; this would allow caching (assuming a connection was available to invalidate the cache as appropriate).
I’ve created a Trello Board for feature requests, discussion and some development tracking.
pip install py-trello
from trello import TrelloClient client = TrelloClient( api_key='your-key', api_secret='your-secret', token='your-oauth-token-key', token_secret='your-oauth-token-secret' )
token_secret come from the 3-legged OAuth process and
api_secret are your Trello API credentials that are (generated here).
To use without 3-legged OAuth, use only
api_secret on client.
Working with boards
all_boards = client.list_boards() last_board = all_boards[-1] print(last_board.name)
working with board lists and cards
all_boards = client.list_boards() last_board = all_boards[-1] last_board.list_lists() my_list = last_board.get_list(list_id) for card in my_list.list_cards(): print(card.name)
Getting your Trello OAuth Token
Make sure the following environment variables are set:
These are obtained from the link mentioned above.
TRELLO_EXPIRATION is optional. Set it to a string such as ‘never’ or ‘1day’. Trello’s default OAuth Token expiration is 30 days.
Default permissions are read/write.
More info on setting the expiration here: https://trello.com/docs/gettingstarted/#getting-a-token-from-a-user
python -m trello oauth
Required Python modules
To run the tests, run
python -m unittest discover. Four environment variables must be set:
TRELLO_API_KEY: your Trello API key
TRELLO_TOKEN: your Trello OAuth token
TRELLO_TEST_BOARD_COUNT: the number of boards in your Trello account
TRELLO_TEST_BOARD_NAME: name of the board to test card manipulation on. Must be unique, or the first match will be used
TRELLO_TEST_STAR_COUNT: the number of stars on your test Trello board
WARNING: The tests will delete all cards on the board called TRELLO_TEST_BOARD_NAME!
To run tests across various Python versions, tox is supported. Install it and simply run
tox from the
