Is there any way we can get trello API Key from insomnia/postman ?

I tried to make an app that show user trello data. In the documentation the process is simple, just take the api key from and copy paste the key to your apps.

but with this kind of methods, there is no way I can get the api key for different user.

Is there any way to handle this ?

if possible for mobile use like react-native (I do not know if the client.js from trello docs is compatible with react-native)

thank you in advance.

Unless you are into software development, I would recommend using a Power Up like External Share to selectively share cards with an external part.
Another option is to use Contalist to share a card via email (with custom template) Here you can decide what part of the card you want to share. 
I worked a bit with client.js but not react-native. Decide it works fine on HTML pages. 

Hi, thanks a lot for the reply.

I will look into Power Up - External Share for this problem.


Read the docs about client.js and unfortunately, it still need the user to input API Key (correct me if I am wrong) manually to get the data.


I am into software development ( still learning to do better ), but the docs and the tutorial only show 1 way to get the API Key which from the which is a blockade because it's inconvenience for the user to copy and paste it into the apps.


Thanks a lot for the answer.
