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 Commented Mar 18, 2016 at 22:27

    This still works however you must use .html at the end of your board. This may change shortly, maybe, since I've just reported a vulnerability through this iframe feature so YMMV.

    Isn't it strange that the trello app supports this feature but there's no documentation about it? Commented Oct 6, 2017 at 13:45
  • Is the .png one working for anyone? Can't get an image in Safari or Chrome... Commented Jul 8, 2019 at 13:04
  • This seems to have stopped working. The .png returns "Gone". The trello.com/b/nC8QJJoZ.html shortcut returns some weird symbols. All others are denied due to X-Frame-Options DENY.

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.

  • 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
