Is Trello going to release a Linux Desktop app?

It is interesting to see that Trello has released desktop apps. However, they are limited to Windows and Mac at the minute. Is there a plan on releasing a Linux based application?

It's 2019 and, by the fact that only some hundreds viewed this post and nearly no one commented anything, I suppose Trello remains with only a few people interested on it for Linux... if you are reading this and wanted a version for Linux (like me), please post it here!!

Now it's 2020 and even Evernote and Microsoft Teams has announced a linux client:

The MS Teams linux client is actually out already, even though it says "preview" it seems quite full fledged to me.

A Linux version would be great. I'm interested, too.

Yes please, our entire dev team uses various Linux distros and the agency uses trello for all maintenance/todos so I've always got it open.  I've made a shortcut to the web page but I can't make it stick to all visible workspaces.

Hi Ardeshir,


That's a great question—right now, we're not planning on a Linux version, but I'll let the team know you're looking for it!

Let's hope this changes, it would really be great :)

haven't tried it myself yet though!

It's basically just a desktop wrapper for the website as far as I could make out (no offline capability).

It's an Electron app, so there's really zero excuse for not having a Linux version --- that's the whole point of Electron.

Please deliver a Linux app. Electron is fine - I'd just like to use an app with its own icon and desktop notifications.

I ended up here looking for a Linux version too. I’d like to create an interactive board hanging on the wall with a touch screen, probably powered by a raspberry pi underneath and with offline support. 

I am quite interested in seeing a linux version as well, or alternatively, a web app version. Web apps can be easily supported on linux.

How about a snap, a lot of the other kanban apps like zenkit, ora use Snaps for Linux, Snaps are distro independent.

em may be its nice 

I would love it to be in linux

Trello should release Linux version for stupid genius like us.

Would like that as well

Any sign of a Linux client?  I use all 3 platforms but Linux (Ubuntu) is my primary dev platform and where having trello client would be of most use to me.

+1, please!


Anyone tried Focus|Project App? Not a replacement, but I am creating an app, of which the Trello integration is getting published first.

I use it as a reduced functionality Trello desktop client for the stuff that I'd quickly/frequently reach for. (I think it does help me, nut sure how biased I am though :) ) When just fiddling with a card it can help I suppose, for everything 'large scope' I just use the web.

It's really in beta - it will need some improvements even on the most basic things like authorization, for instance - so getting started could be daunting right now, but it is written/tested on the go on Ubuntu, so I think you can guess which OS it feels home on ;)

Also it has one of the darkest UIs (optionally) that I ever created =b

(I hope to get back to putting it on the Trello integrations route soon, for now it's just an "Unknown app" when authorizing.)
