Automating Trello update

Hi All,
Does anyone have any experience with automating Trello card update with API calls? We have a quite complex card structure with many custom fields.
During the discovery found 3 options:

1.) Trello Power-up - limitation is that only new card can be created, update not possible

2.) Zapier - not allowed to connect with BOX (we planned to have an automatic trigger if a file is updated to BOX then with the help of Zapier we would trigger the automatic update). We are working on the SSRM and Allow list request, but quite time consuming

3.) API calls - need development, not sure if any team already developed before? Before start from scratch want to check if any team has already did some work in this area? Or any team that would be available or doing such work?

Any other automation option that we didn't discover?

Thank you very much in advance,

Have done a fair bit of work with py-trello which is a python wrapper. It is a lot easier compared to working with individual API endpoints. I have been using it with clients.

It is on GitHub....and no I do not know who is using it other than those who had subscribed to it. 

Can you share where can I find in github?

in the meantime I found sthg , thank you very much for your help!

@Viktoria Burucz I've created a bot framework and platform specialising in Trello API automation:

It can be used as a generic webhook receiver, so for example you want to register a webhook with Box then have some Trello card changed when a POST is received there, that's doable.
