This project uses the peanut function testing tool for node.js

The tests that are included are meant to get you familiar with the Trello API using the node-trello project.

Take a look at the code in: features/step_definitions to see what is going on in each scenario from features/trello.feature

You'll need to create a config/environments/test/settings.js based on the example file found there.

You'll need to provide a key, token and board name.

SUPER IMPORTANT NOTE: When you run the tests, all existing lanes and cards on the named board will be archived. Do not, under any circumstances, reference a board that is currently in use. You should create a totally new board to reference for this code.

Make sure that peanut is installed:

npm install -g peanut
