How To Build a Trello Chrome Extension – API Authentication

via How To Build a Trello Chrome Extension – API Authentication.

At SitePoint, we use Trello extensively. Sure, it has its quirks and could use an improvement or two in various areas, but for the most part, it’s revolutionized the collaborative experience of not only staff, but also authors and their editors.

By default, Trello only supports full board exports to JSON and that’s something that crashes my tab on a board of over 100 members with hundreds of cards. There’s a small army of Trello extensions in the store, and yet curiously, none that export lists in any manner.

Let’s make a Chrome extension that can do this for us! If you’re in a rush and just want to see the end result, see the Github repo for the final version of this tutorial’s code.

Installable Web Apps with the WebApp Manifest in Chrome for Android

Click to Read: The Manifest for Web applications is a simple JSON file that gives you, the developer, the ability to control how your app appears to the user in the areas that they would expect to see apps (for example the mobile homescreen), direct what the user can launch and more importantly how they can launch it. In the future the manifest will give you even more control over your app, but right now we are just focusing on how your app can be launched.
