Example CLI Script to Create Trello Cards

Project description


This is a sample CLI interface to generate cards on my private Trello board.


You can install this example using the tarfile:

pip install Trello-CLI-Example-hanabou-1.0.1.tar.gz

You can also install it through pypi:

pip install Trello-CLI-Example-hanabou==1.0.1


The CLI can be used with the following options:


Usage: add_card <NAME> --list=<LIST> [(--label_name=<LABEL_NAME> --label_color=<LABEL_COLOR>)...] [--comment=<COMMENT_TEXT>] -h|--help -v|--version

    NAME                              Name of the new Trello card
    --list=LIST                       Name of the list that will contain the new Trello card (todo, doing, done)
    --label_name=<LABEL_NAME>         Label name for the new Trello card
    --label_color=<LABEL_COLOR>       Label color for the new Trello card (yellow, purple, blue, red, green, orange, black, sky, pink, lime)
    --comment=<COMMENT_TEXT>          Text contents for a comment on the new Trello card

    -h --help  Show this screen
    -v --version  Show version

Sample usage

Here is an example that will add a card (with labels and a comment) to my private Trello board, under the "To Do" list:

python add_card "Slice of Chocolate Cake" --list=todo --label_name=DESSERT --label_color=pink --label_name="FOOD" --label_color=red --comment="With a side of ice cream"

This creates a card with the following structure:

| Trello Board "Orders"
----| Trello List "To Do"
     ----| Trello Card "Slice of Chocolate Cake"
          ----| Label "DESSERT"
               ----| Color Pink
          ----| Label "FOOD"
               ----| Color Red
          ----| Comment "With a side of ice cream"
