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.
pip install py-trello
from trello import TrelloClient
- client = TrelloClient(
- api_key='your-key', api_secret='your-secret', token='your-oauth-token-key', token_secret='your-oauth-token-secret'
Where token and token_secret come from the 3-legged OAuth process and api_key and api_secret are your Trello API credentials that are (generated here).
Getting your Trello OAuth Token
Make sure the following environment variables are set:
These are obtained from the link mentioned above.
TRELLO_EXPIRATION is optional. Set it to a string such as 'never' or '1day'. Trello's default OAuth Token expiration is 30 days.
Default permissions are read/write.
More info on setting the expiration here: https://trello.com/docs/gettingstarted/#getting-a-token-from-a-user
Required Python modules
Found in requirements.txt
To run the tests, run python tests.py. 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/test_trello.py
