3llo - Interactive CLI for Trello

3llo is the terminal client for Trello, which helps you manage Trello cards without leaving your awesome terminal.


3llo was inspired by the awesome rainbowstream and facy.

Why this named 3llo?

Good to know that 3 == "tre" in Swedish.


gem install 3llo

You also need to have these environment variables set in your shell.

export TRELLO_USER=your_username
export TRELLO_KEY=your_key
export TRELLO_TOKEN=your_token

Obtain Trello API key and token

  1. Go to Get started.
  2. Click on Get your Application Key.
  3. Copy the Application Key and generate a Token using the instruction on the page.


There are a couple of commands available in 3llo.

  • board list: List your board
  • board select <board_id>: Select the active board.
  • card list: List all cards of the active board.
  • card list mine: List all your cards of the active board.
