class platypush.backend.trello.TrelloBackend(boards: List[str], token: str, **kwargs)[source]#

Bases: Backend

This backend listens for events on a remote Trello account through websocket interface.. Note that the Trello websocket interface is not officially supported and it requires a different token from the one you use for the Trello API (and for the Trello plugin). To get the websocket token:

  1. Open in your browser.

  2. Open the developer tools (F12), go to the Network tab, select ‘Websocket’ or ‘WS’ in the filter bar and refresh the page.

  3. You should see an entry in the format wss://<token>.

  4. Copy the <token> in the configuration of this backend.
