Simply, I would like to get a chromeless version of a Trello board and embed it directly into the 'tasks' page of my site. I'd still have my site's header and footer around it.

I guess I could just use an iFrame, but is there a more elegant solutions to this?

Also I would like to theme it to suit the rest of the site...

Anyone knows where to start with this?

Sure you can. Check these links out:

Consider this as an example card:


You can link to a card as a photo using the following:

<img src="https://trello.com/c/NIRpzVDM.png" />

enter image description here

You could embed an iframe as follows:

<iframe src="https://trello.com/c/NIRpzVDM.html"></iframe>

You can also do a javascript that writes the card into your page:

<script src="https://trello.com/c/NIRpzVDM.js"></script>

which writes out some html using document.write("<html content>")

Another way is to request a card's JSON


All of these are available using a board as well...

Can anyone verify if this still works? initial attempts in Chrome gave me GET https://trello.com/c/somecardid.png 410 (Gone) and Refused to display 'https://trello.com/c/somecard' in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'DENY'. in my console – yochannah Mar 18 at 22:27

Other than using an iframe, Trello has a REST public API that you can tap into for your site. You can theme it to match your site and have more control than simply a window into another site. You can find more information on programmableweb here: http://www.programmableweb.com/api/trello

I believe this'll work, but I wish Trello lets us copy&paste some js code to embed cards/lists/boards. I'm thinking of showing for (liveditor.com/text-editor) the bugfixes and feature implementation implementation which is managed in Trello. – Edwin Yip Jul 20 '13 at 17:59
Trello has a feature request board that you can post your comments to and users can vote for it to be implemented. Here's the link: trello.com/b/nC8QJJoZ/trello-development – Terra Jul 25 '13 at 13:57
