Is it possible to create a custom card type with some extra fields, happy to get stuck into some APIS if it would be possible….It’s been a few years since I did some serious coding so any Noddy guides would be helpful

Not even overstating things here: literally every single person I’ve talked to who’s considering investing cash money into creating an app on Miro has brought this up: the desire for the custom card widget. And I believe the original vision for the ‘card’ is just that: that it one day finds itself to be a more use-case-adaptable, special-purpose-customizable widget -- attractive like the website snippet cards, somewhat interactive like Kanban, level of detail controlled like cards currently.
There’s tons of obvious parallel / overlap with what’s become popular in design/dev circles: like CSS frameworks and component libraries. Examples:
MVP Miro implementation would seem to be the pressing design question at the moment. I think about that a lot these days.
At the moment you can write HTML onto a card and can parse it later to read it back into your app… but I haven’t been able to get HTML to render any differently on a card ( <H1> looking big and bold vs <p> looking like, well ...<p>…). If I recall correctly, the HTML on a card does respect new lines / line breaks as it renders… which isn’t nothing and could be hacked for use… but you have to click on each card to expose that ‘description’ text … so its fairly limited. Admittedly, it was 8 months ago when I did those tests - could have done a poor investigation and/or overlooked something.
