###API_KEY https://trello.com/1/appKey/generate

###OAUTH_TOKEN This is not so well explained in Trello, but I understood that you need to authorize the app with API_KEY to access each board separatelly. To do that:


where [YOUR+API_KEY+HERE] is the one you entered in the previous step, while [BOARD+NAME+AS...] is, well, what it says. If your board is


then you should type in "git-trello".

###TRELLO_BOARD_ID It is the end of the URL when viewing the board. For example, for https://trello.com/board/git-trello/5104d726d973fb4356000c5f, board_id is 5104d726d973fb4356000c5f.

###LIST_ID_IN_PROGRESS and LIST_ID_IN_DONE List IDs seem to be a (board id + list index), where all are treated as hex numbers. However, this is undocumented.

Safe way to find a list ID is to open a card from the list, click the More link in the bottom-right corner, select Export JSON and find the idList.

Post receive will move all referenced cards to the LIST_ID_IN_PROGRESS, unless they are referenced by Close or Fix word, in which case it will move them to the LIST_ID_IN_DONE.

###commit_url_prefix If you have a web view of your Git repo (such as GitLab), you can enter the URL which, when sufixed with the commit SHA will show the commit in question. Post-receive will add a link to the commit to each of the comments on cards.

Another example could be https://github.com/zanker/github-trello/commit/.

If you ommit the parameter, link will not be placed.


Many thanks to Zachary Anker for the trello/github integration.
