Using Trello for project management with your team now made easier with this Github action.

My Workflow

Trello Manage is a GitHub action that helps you automatically manage your issues in Trello with your teammates.

It automatically creates a Board with the name same as that of the repository name and a list with name Issues so that team working on that repo can manage issues easily.

It also assigns the issue labels and colour coding in your Trello board list same as that of your Github, enabling you to easily differentiate between each issue.

You can easily integrate this action in your workflow using this YAML:

      - name: Runs trello manage

Additional Resources / Info

Making this action has been a really great journey for me. Being a newbie in JavaScript this action not only helped me in learning JavaScript language but also the core design features and use cases of Github Action. This being my second Github action project, I feel very much satisfied and convinced that there are lots of possibilities that can be made possible using this great tool.

More features can be added to this Trello manage Github action like automated issue assignment to team members or automated adding issues to Done list in Trello after it's been closed.

Possibilities are endless.
