Opening hyperlinks to cards in the Trello app (not a web browser)

Anyone have a good solution for redirecting links to Trello cards such that they open in the Trello app (Mac OS X) rather than a browser?

I tried this using the Mac app Choosy, but needless to say the app does not know how to process a hyperlink.

Anyone know of another way "into" the Trello app?

This widget could not be displayed.

Maybe there's a way to do it via the app's Paste URL & Go command.

Maybe a script (Bash? AppleScript?) that takes the url from Choosy and pastes it into Trello.

I would love to figure this out!

Good idea! Had not noticed that menu item.

I cobbled together a work around here by creating a Keyboard Maestro action.

The action triggers on System Clipboard change, and if it contains "https://trello.com/c/" then it switches to the Trello app and runs the Paste URL & Go menu action. 

As such, in Mail I right click on the card title and choose "Copy Link", and it runs, switching me to Trello and then the card itself.

Still not quite one click smooth, but closer...

 

Nice! My workaround for now is always using Trello in the browser, with one exception - I run the desktop app, menubar only, purely to use its Quick Card (⌃⌥Space).

@Justin P. Do you mind sharing your Keyboard Maestro action or a screenshot?

Sure Matt... here it is...

A blank Trello board can be both a beautiful and intimidating thing. How many lists should I have? Is creating 10 labels overkill? How can I best track my progress? Is there a way...
