Trello – backup to your linux machine

Just in case, you are looking for backing up your trello account boards, you can use the following bash script to do so:


#!/bin/bash -
#          FILE:
#         USAGE: ./
#       OPTIONS: ---
#          BUGS: ---

# Your backup directory

# Your trello api token and key goes here ūüôā

# IDs of the boards go here. This is easy to get, just go to your 
# board and check the last part of URL
BOARDS=( a b )


for i in ${BOARDS[*]}
    /usr/bin/curl -H 'Accept-Encoding:gzip, deflate, br' -H 'Accept:text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8' "$URL$i.json?&key=$key&token=$token$POST" > "$BDIR/$i.json.gz"
    # gzip -f "$BDIR/$i.json"


You can add this script in cron, if you wish to do so ūüôā

Oh, and BTW the script gets the details in zipped format so output is created as <id of board>.json.gz.
