CLI interface for Trello. Named after Trello's mascot 'Roo'.


  • A Trello account with API key/secret.
  • MacOSX/Linux (I've not tested with Windows, sorry.)
  • Ruby 2.1.1 (>= 1.9.3 should be fine, developed mainly in 2.1.0 so far.)
  • Redis.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'troo'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install troo


You will need user authentication tokens to access your Trello account.

Setup Wizard

Simply run troo wizard and follow the on screen instructions.


1) Sign in to Trello in the normal way.

2) Create your developer key at Trello:

3) Go to:,write

4) Add your authentication tokens to the configuration file .trooconf in your home directory. (This file will be created for you the first time you run troo wizard)

5) Have fun, and tweet me @gavinlaking if you like it.

I've put a simple fake server together so that I'm not hitting the Trello API continuously. You can activate and use this too.

1) Create own SSL certificate .crt and .key files:

openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -out my-server.crt -keyout my-server.key

2) Forward all port 80 and port 443 requests to your local server.

sudo ipfw add 100 fwd,8080 tcp from any to me 80
sudo ipfw add 101 fwd,8443 tcp from any to me 443

3) Tell your machine to be by updating the /etc/hosts file:

4) Run server.rb:

cd ./test/support/fake_trello

5) Have fun.

6) When done, kill the server, revert /etc/hosts and remove the forwarding.

sudo ipfw del 100
sudo ipfw del 101
