A simple asynchronous client for Trello

This is a wrapper for some of the Trello HTTP API. Please feel free to add any other pieces you need! :)

The original version was published here, but isn't maintained any more. I added some new functions for a better support of Trello; also node module 'restler' has been replaced due to compatibility issues with node 0.10.x (and it seems not to be maintained anymore).


npm install trello_ex


First, generate your Trello application key like this, then follow these confusing instructions to get a user token. These need to be supplied when you create the Trello object (see below).


  var Trello = require("trello_ex");
  var trello = new Trello("MY APPLICATION KEY", "MY USER TOKEN");

  trello.addCard('Clean car', 'Wax on, wax off', myListId,
      function (error, trelloCard) {
          if (error) {
              console.log('Could not add card:', error);
          else {
              console.log('Added card:', trelloCard);
