Create multiple checklists from spreadsheet


I am making a lot of checklists (500ish for this project) in Trello and using copy paste from a spreadsheet (every line item is slightly different so no point copying in Trello). Basically I have a unit to run wires to (the checklist name) and the items are all the wires/devices associated with the unit.

Is there a way to create multiple checklists automatically from copy paste? Save me having to make checklist, copy/paste a handful of points, then go make a new checklist and copy/paste again and repeat for the 20 odd items in that card?

Not sure whether you will be hitting some limits imposed by Trello. To do such massive insertion of checklists and items onto a card, some programming may be required if you want to do it efficient. I am aware that a client with 1000+ cards need to keep all the checklist in sync with a master checklist, it took him 20-30 minutes with a program to run through all the cards.

I would imagine copying it into a google sheet with column 1 as the checklist name and column 2 to be the items and having a card button to read and write to the card.
