npm version styled with prettier

A component that encapsulates Trello's API token-based authentication to grant third-party applications access to the Trello API.


This library is available on npm, install it with: npm install --save react-native-trello-login or yarn add react-native-trello-login.


1. Import react-native-trello-login

import TrelloLogin from "react-native-trello-login";

2. Define your Trello API key

To begin the authentication process, you need an API key. Every Trello user is given an API key. You can retrieve your API key by logging into Trello and visiting
Because the API key is tied to the user, it is often a good idea to create a Trello user specifically for building a single application or integration. This ensures that a third-party's integration is disassociated from a third-party integration's developer's Trello account. It's also suggested to define the API key in a separate file or in an environment variable.


3. Show the Trello authentication screen

The imported TrelloLogin component is just a React-Native WebView that will take care of showing and handling the Trello auth process.

export default class TrelloLoginExample extends React.Component {
  handleLoginSuccess = trelloAuthToken => {
    // The user authenticated successfully.
    // From now on you'll be able to use the Trello APIs using `trelloAuthToken`

  handleLoginFailure = message => {
    // Handle the authentication failure (maybe by showing an alert?)

  render() {
    return (
      <View style={styles.container}>
          applicationName="React Native Trello Login Example"
