GitHub and Trello are two popular tools for software development teams. GitHub is a code hosting platform that allows developers to collaborate on code, while Trello is a project management tool that helps teams organize their work. In this article, we will explain how to connect GitHub to Trello to streamline your workflow and improve collaboration.
Step 1: Create a Trello Account
If you don’t already have a Trello account, create one by visiting Trello.com. Once you have created an account, log in to your Trello dashboard.
Step 2: Create a GitHub Repository
If you don’t already have a GitHub repository for your project, create one by visiting GitHub.com. Once you have created a repository, log in to your GitHub account.
Step 3: Connect GitHub to Trello
To connect GitHub to Trello, go to the GitHub Integrations page. Scroll down to the “Trello” section and click on the “Configure” button. Follow the instructions to authorize Trello access to your GitHub account.
Step 4: Create a Trello Board
Once you have connected GitHub to Trello, create a new Trello board for your project. Give it a name and add some lists to organize your tasks. You can also add cards to each list to represent specific tasks.
Step 5: Connect GitHub Issues to Trello Cards
To connect GitHub issues to Trello cards, go to the GitHub Issues page. Click on an issue and then click on the “Trello” button in the top right corner of the screen. Select the Trello board and list where you want to create a card for this issue.
Step 6: Use Zapier to Automate Tasks
If you want to automate tasks between GitHub and Trello, consider using Zapier. Zapier allows you to create “zaps” that trigger actions in one tool based on events in another tool. For example, you could create a zap that automatically creates a Trello card when a new GitHub issue is created.
By connecting GitHub to Trello, you can streamline your software development workflow and improve collaboration among team members. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily set up the integration and start using it right away.
