Taco is a Discord bot that connects your Trello account to your Discord account. From there, you can edit boards and cards directly from Discord and make actions on your board appear in a Discord channel live using webhooks.
# Getting Started
Before you can use Taco, you will need to invite him to your Discord server. Make sure you use commands in a channel that Taco can both read and send messages from.
In order to have the best user experience, Taco should have the following permissions:
You can see the available commands you can use by typing
T!help or going to the commands list on the website.
# The Trello Role (optional)
Certain commands such as the Webhook related commands are role limited. To restrict who can use these commands, the bot looks for a Trello role on a server or for a user with Administrator permissions. If a user doesn't have that role, they will be unable to run those commands. The role needs no permissions, so long as it has the name "Trello".
Before authenticating, make sure that you use the right account to link to your Trello account. You must login to the Discord website (opens new window) (in
discord.com, not in PTB/Canary) and use the same account you intend to use Taco with.
In order to interact with your Trello boards, you will need to authenticate with your Trello account. You can do so by going here. The process takes less than a minute only needs two clicks. To verify that you have the right account and that you are authorized, you can use the
If you want to unlink your account, you can use the
T!clearauth command in any channel.
After this step, you can select a board with
T!switch and you should be free to do any actions within the bot.
The most common use for this bot is setting up webhooks to send Trello updates to a channel in Discord. To read how to quickly set this up, click the Webhooks link below, or click the Webhooks link under Getting Started on the sidebar.
