A CLI app for interacting with Trello.

I personally find Trello's UI offerings to be too taxing on my computer and the many things it loads in an attempt to look nice make it a bit jumpy and sluggish. I spend a ton of my day on the command line and wanted an interface with Trello in that environment.

Add to that my long-time fascination with ncurses apps and a desire to learn Crystal and the result is this project.

  1. Install it through homebrew! If you don't have homebrew, you'll have to compile it yourself for now. See Development below for instructions. Otherwise, run

    brew install geolessel/homebrew-repo/trello-cli

    You can also track the master branch by adding the --HEAD flag.

    brew install --HEAD geolessel/homebrew-repo/trello-cli
  2. Run trello

    The application should take you through a setup process that will direct you to Trello's site asking if you'll grant the app access to your Trello account. Once you accept, Trello will provide you with an API token. Just paste that into the line asking for your token and it will do the rest.

    --| This app requires access to your trello account. |--
    I'll open up a web page requesting access. Once you accept, you will
    be presented with an API token. Copy that and use it in the next step.
    Press ENTER to continue
    Completing setup


  1. Run it!


For now, you need to build it yourself and you must have the Crystal language installed. You can

  1. Clone this repo
    git clone https://github.com/geolessel/trello-cli.git
  2. Install the Crystal Shards (in the trello-cli directory)
    shards install
  3. Run the app (in the trello-cli directory)
    crystal run src/trello.cr


  1. Fork it (https://github.com/geolessel/trello-cli/fork)
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create a new Pull Request
