Moving your Medium's Bookmarks to Trello

I firmly believe that our time should be spent on important things.
The time you spent searching for an article could be time spent on reading that article.

Quick Demo

Getting started

You might have to update the .env file from time to time, because cookies have limited lifetime.


conventions: field = list name; keyword = filter key

  • fetch saved posts from Medium and transfer them to Trello and also remove them from bookmark list
  • the keywords for a field can also include regular expressions

  • add keyword to a field

    Syntax: $field_name $filter_key1 | $filter_key2
    Example: react react hooks | \bstyled components\b

  • create field and add keywords to it

    Syntax: create!$field_name $filter_key1 | $filter_key2
    Example: create!posts development posts

  • You can see where each card will be placed by having a look at info.log file after getting the message All good? (y/n)
  • the show_list command will print the existing lists to the info.log file
  • create a Trello list if the list name exists in config.json, but not in Trello
  • add link to a list(which doesn't have to exist) without applying any filters. Read More

    Syntax: temp!$list_name
    Example: temp!react
