I often have ideas while I'm working, and want to make a note of them very quickly without losing my train of thought.
So I want to bind a keyboard shortcut to open a URL, which would add a card in the "Ideas" list in my current Trello project.
Is there some URL I could use to directly add a new card to a certain list?
This is my number one requirement for a planning app, that there's a way for me to add a note very quickly and efficiently, from a single keypress.
(For Jira, I was able to find the URL for an outdated user interface to add a ticket, I used keypad plus to add a task, and keypad minus to log a bug.)
Maybe I can find some hack to do this by writing a browser extension or something.
I searched for "save to Trello" and found this: https://trello.com/en-AU/add-card
There's a locale-neutral version here: https://trello.com/add-card
It's an official mini-page and bookmarklet which works nicely to save a page to Trello, almost exactly what I was looking for.
It remembers the last board and list that I used.
Now I need to figure out how to attach it to a keyboard shortcut, there's an article here that looks promising: https://www.groovypost.com/howto/add-shortcut-keys-chrome-bookmarks/
I can set a favicon for it using this dirty hack: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/521040/how-to-have-favicon-icon-set-when-bookmarklet-dragged-to-toolbar
I found and tried using a couple of existing Chrome extensions, but they won't authorize with Trello. For example, this one: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/add-to-trello/engmocckoohpopiacajolojeobefbcec
Also we can't create standalone API keys any longer, they need to be attached to a "power up" which is annoying.
