Allows you to manage or reference your Trello board through commits to Github. Tag a commit with "Closes 1234" to have a card automatically archived, or "Card 1234" to have the commit sent to the card.
+Commit messages are searched for `(case|card|close|archive|fix)e?s? \D?([0-9]+)` to find the card short id. Case/card resolve to on_start configuration, close/fix resolve to on_close, and archive will just archive the card regardless.
+The commit message is added as a comment to the card as well.
+See `trello-web --help` for a list of arguments for starting the server. If your domain name is and the server is listening on port 4000, then set the posthook URL on Github to __
+On the first run, it will create an empty configuration file for you that you will need to configure based on how you want it to manage.
+You will need to get your api key and OAuth token with read/write access that won't expire for this to work. You can either use your own account, or create a separate deployment one for this.
+Go to to get your key, then go to _,write&expiration=never&key=[Your Key Here]_ replacing __[Your Key Here]__ with the key Trello gave you. Authorize the request and then add the token and key to your trello.yml file.
+You can get the board id from the URL, for example the board id is _4d5ea62fd76aa1136000000ca_.
+There are 3 actions you can configure to decide what happens to a card. Currently due to a bug in Trello's API, you cannot move a card to another list through the API, so only __archive__ will work. The code is already in, just waiting on Trello to fix the bug.
+To do
+Once Trello fixes the list API bug, I'll be implementing an on deploy action for people who want to be able to move cards from list A to B, such as moving from a "Pending Deployment" to "Live" or just archiving the cards.
