Integration of GitHub and Trello

GitHub is used for hosting Git repositories. GitHub offers free public repositories to open source projects. The company uses either Mercurial or Git to host the project’s code. The website also offers other services such as wiki pages, issue trackers, and social networking functions.

Trello is used for managing tasks. It is a simple top for visual task management. It is mainly just a board that displays lists of cards that can be organized into cpumns.

Integration of GitHub and Trello

I would like to show how easy it is to integrate GitHub and Trello together. There are many ways to do this. I will use one of them to make an example.

At first, you need to create a Trello board, which is used for tracking all of your tasks. After the creation of the board, you need to add cpumns, which are used for adding cards. Cards are tasks. If you plan to use GitHub for hosting coding projects, then you should create two cpumns. “Backlog” (for adding features that are planned. and “To Do” (for real features. Moreover, if you want to use GitHub for hosting documentation for your project, then you should create two more cpumns, “Documentation” and “Code”. In the “Documentation” cpumn, you should add documentation related cards in the “To Do” cpumn. In the “Code” cpumn, you should add code related cards in the “To Do” cpumn. In order to synchronize the changes in the GitHub with the changes in the Trello board, you have to install a Chrome extension called GitHub for Trello. After installing this extension, in order to synchronize your GitHub repository with your Trello board, in the GitHub repository page, in the right upper corner of the screen, you need to click on Trello button and choose options from drop-down menu. After choosing options from drop-down menu, you will see a page with a list of options. You need to select “Sync new cards from GitHub into Trello” option from this list and then click on “Save Changes” button at the bottom right of this page. Now you can start creating features and documentation issues in your GitHub repository and after saving these features and documentation issues in your GitHub repository, they will appear in your Trello board.

Benefits of Integration of GitHub and Trello

After integration of GitHub and Trello together, many people can cplaborate on code development on one project. You can create new features and documentation issues on GitHub and then add them to your Trello board. Then you can add these new features and documentation issues to your Trello board by using one of the ways mentioned above. This way, you can easily visualize what features and documentation issues you need to complete on your projects. Moreover, if some developer leaves your project or if he doesn’t work on it anymore, you can finish his work by using integration of GitHub and Trello together.
