I’m trying to get myself to better recognize work I’ve completed, so I wrote a process to look at my Trello board and send a Slack message to myself. This is why and how.
So I’m a bit particular about how I keep my finances in order. To the point that I wrote my own web-based ledger software to help myself keep it all straight. Yeah, there are third-party solutions out there, but I wanted something that worked exactly the way I wanted. Every couple days I pull receipts … Continue reading “Trello as an Interface via Webhooks”
I write about the Trello API a lot. So much that I’ve already noted that I write about it a lot. I keep coming across new stuff, though, so I’m going to keep writing about it. My latest experiment was a look into using their batch call, which I don’t see a lot of documentation about … Continue reading “Batch Requests with the Trello API”
I’ve written pretty extensively on my work with the Trello API and yesterday I got to present the code side of it at TechSmith’s internal development conference, ReCon. Last year I presented for the first time (when the event was called DevCon) and I think I learned a lot from it that helped me this … Continue reading “Implementing Advanced Trello Functionality via the Trello API”

Using the Trello UI, it’s really simple to move a card from one column/list to another on the same board. Click … Continue reading “Moving Cards to a Different Board via the Trello API”

One of the things my team at work always seems to have a problem with is tracking our tasks and how they fit into the bigger picture of our team’s goals. We had these problems when we were using a bulletin board, we have these problems now that we’re using a single Trello board. We … Continue reading “Linking Child and Parent Cards on Trello via the Trello API”
I came across something interesting today, working on a project that is supposed to automatically archive all cards on a Trello board that are in the “Completed” column and are more than two weeks old. This should have been really easy. Use the /1/lists/<list_id>/cards GET request to get all of the cards on the list then … Continue reading “Trello API and dateLastActivity”
Note: This post was updated on March 4, 2021, to replace references to outdated code. A couple weeks ago I wrote up a bit about a PHP wrapper object I’d written for the Twitter API v1.1. Since then I’ve been playing with the Trello API a bit, so I figured I’d write that up as … Continue reading “PHP and the Trello API”
