Python wrapper around the Trello API

Project description

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. It can
be found `here <>`_.


pip install py-trello


py-oauth2 works if you apply the patch found `here <>`_. To use 3-legged authentication, construct your Trello client as follows:

client = Trello(api_key = '...', api_secret = '...', token = '...', token_secret = '...')

Where `token` and `token_secret` come from the 3-legged OAuth process. `api_key` and `api_secret`
are your Trello API credentials (`generated here <>`_).

Required Python modules
* `httplib2 <>`_

To run the tests, run `python`. Three 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

And run (from `py-trello/`):

PYTHONPATH=. python test/
