Awesome! Can’t wait to listen!
Same here. I finally downloaded the app and left a tip because this is the sort of thing I want to see exist, and I want to support its continued life.
Do you know any programming language or workflow/shortcuts?
I can write shelk scripts and I’ve started using Shortcuts.
This was a great episode for me to get excited about some more beyond Shortcuts. Would Scriptable be able to do this thing I can’t believe the Apple Watch doesn’t do? I charge my Apple Watch and it’s still connected by Bluetooth to my phone. I want a notification on my phone when my Watch battery has reached 100% charge. Does anyone think it could be done?
I don’t believe so. You would need a push notification from the watch, or a long running background process to poll for the battery level and then trigger a notification.
we will see if @MacSparky or @RosemaryOrchard will do some thing about it. As a software developer I could think up something by myself. maybe in a thread of this forum — we will see
I guess you could do it with IFTTT, but certainly not with Scriptable. You would need to run a script every time you want to check the battery.
I really liked that episode and also started to write my first script with Scriptable.
But there is one thing I haven’t figured out how to do it with Scriptable: Notifications.
Is there a way to do that in Scriptable?
Scripts could be triggered by hand or by voice (siri) you can use message boxes or let siri talk to you. notifications as I understand it would be triggered by a background task. I would say that is not even possible at the moment. @simonbs did I get it right?
@nheer what was the task you want to solve?
There’s not currently a way to schedule notifications with Scriptable. I’ve been thinking about it a lot and haven’t figured out how to approach it yet. Maybe it’s because I haven’t figured out the perfect use case yet.
Here’s some of my thoughts so far:
- An API for scheduling a notification for a date, possibly making it repeating
- An API to fetch all schedules notifications
- An API for cancelling a specific notifications
- Tapping on a notification may open a URL, eg. a URL scheme. This would enable running a script.
- Maybe look into running a script when a notification is pressed - possibly presenting UI, just like the Siri integration.
Those are only notes for now. I’m still considering how to approach notifications.
Yes. Love it all, man! Keep it coming!
I wanted to show a notification when the timer has started so that I know when I can begin brewing, but I solved it with Siri shortcuts itself.
