Modifying titles in a Trello Board

Mar 16, 2017 - 1 minute read - Comments - trelloautomationscriptcodetool

A teammate and I have created a small tool to modify the titles of the trello card in a trello board.

Technical description

It works by applying a function to the existing title (because we wanted to remove a prefix from the existing title).

The modification is done, not through the API, but simulating user interaction:

  • Click to edit the card
  • Input the new title
  • Save

The full code is available here


This has been a great example of working with legacy code, as the tools to work with the existing product are not the ones you would like to have and an imaginative solution provides a way out of the tar pit.
