at the Powershell prompt to find where your profile is stored):
function trello { & 'PATH_TO_NODE.EXE' 'PATH_TO_TRELLO_BIN' $args }


with the values from your system.

You will then have the

command available anywhere.


# Add card:
$ trello add-card -b "Inbox" -l "Inbox" "Quick card added from command line" -p bottom

Move all cards:

$ trello move-all-cards -b "GTD" -l "Completed next actions" -c "GTD" -d "Completed next actions (Nov 2-8)"
