A Python library for working with the Trello api.

Project Description

Meet Trollop

Trollop is a Python library for working with the Trello API.

Quick Start

A Trello connection is instantiated with your API key and a user’s oauth token:

In [1]: from trollop import TrelloConnection

In [2]: conn = TrelloConnection(<your developer key>, <user's oauth token>)

The connection object will automatically have a Member object attached, representing the user whose oauth token was used to connect:

In [3]:
Out[3]: <Member: me>

In [4]:
Out[4]: u'btubbs'

In the previous example no HTTP request was made until command 4, the access to Trollop objects are lazy.

The connection object has methods for getting objects by their IDs:

In [5]: card = conn.get_card('4f2e454cefab2bbd4ea71b02')

In [6]:
Out[6]: u'Build a Python Trello Library'

In [7]: card.desc
Out[7]: u'And call it Trollop.'

You can use normal Python introspection techniques to see the available attributes. They’ll mostly be named exactly as they are in the JSON returned from Trello:

In [13]: dir(card)

The exact parsed JSON returned from is available as the _data attribute on all Trello objects:

In [7]: card._data
{u'badges': {u'attachments': 0,
             u'checkItems': 0,
             u'checkItemsChecked': 0,
             u'comments': 1,
             u'description': True,
             u'due': None,
             u'fogbugz': u'',
             u'votes': 0},
 u'checkItemStates': [],
 u'closed': True,
 u'desc': u'And call it Trollop.',
 u'id': u'4f2e454cefab2bbd4ea71b02',
 u'idBoard': u'4e8df268f14f2517a7a342fa',
 u'idList': u'4f17cb04d5c817032301c179',
 u'idMembers': [],
 u'idShort': 130,
 u'labels': [],
 u'name': u'Build a Python Trello Library',
 u'url': u''}

Trello objects have smart fields that automatically look up related objects:

In [9]: lst = card.list

In [10]: lst
Out[10]: <List: Icebox>

In [11]:
Out[11]: u'Icebox'

In [12]: lst._id
Out[12]: u'4f17cb04d5c817032301c179'

In [13]: len(
Out[13]: 20

In [14]:[-1].name
Out[14]: u'Build a Python Trello Library'

Help Wanted

Coverage for creating/updating objects is still really thin. If you’d like to pitch in to finish covering the whole API, please send a pull request with your changes.
