Support arranging Trello lists into horizontal swimlanes. To start a new swimlane, just add | or a swimmer emoji to a list's header.
NOTE: THIS EXTENSION IS NO LONGER BEING MAINTAINED! If you find any issues with it, please do not contact me about it, as I'm no longer fixing any issues with this extension.
Please content Trello and encourage them to add built-in support for swimlanes instead!

Trello is a handy tool for keeping track of list items, but it limits you to a single row of lists. This lightweight, keep-it-simple extension for Trello allows you to create multiple horizontal "swimlanes" of lists.
Just add the | character or swimmer emoji 🏊 to the header of any list that should start a swimlane, and you're all set! The lane will be labeled with whatever text follows the swimmer, so if the header reads "Backlog for |Project X", that lane's label will read "Project X".
Moving lists around can cause Trello to get confused and show everything in one lane again; just reload the page to fix it. You may also find it easier to toggle off the extension, re-arrange your lists, and then re-enable the extension. (This is not ideal, for certain, but it's so far unavoidable.)
Note: the extension may ask for permission to view your browsing history. This is to allow it to activate itself only on Trello pages; it is inactive anywhere else. It does not and will not collect, save, or transmit your browsing history.
