Trello Power-Up Development: Can I add a listener for cards moving between lists?

In my powerup, I would like to trigger a specific event whenever the user moves a card between two lists. Ideally, I would be able to receive the names of these lists in the callback, and then act according to that information.

I have seen the post at http://tech.trello.com/power-up-tutorial-part-three/, which describes an event listener for a button action. Is there a simple way to do the same for moving a card between lists?

Thank you!

The power-up API doesn't support notifications for cards being moved. But you can do this by registering a webhook to track the user or board actions. This involves a few extra steps: you need to ask the user for an auth token, register the webhook, receive the webhook in the server, and communicate with your power-up to perform any actions.
