This is more for a “proof of concept” with Scriptable, but I’m so excited about this that I figured I’d post it for other’s inspiration. It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a web server and this app.
What’s this doing?
- My server is pulling in attraction wait times & park schedules via public API and formatting into JSON
- Scriptable is fetching the JSON, formatting the data into tables to display in Siri, and adding voice commands to trigger these scripts
Overall it was much simpler than I expected.
I would love to be able to format the data in more ways though, like CSS styling, but beggars can’t be choosers.
Unfortunately I can’t share the URL that this script is pulling from yet. I was discussing with the developer of the themeparks API library and he said that the URLs can change frequently and in fact, Disney is in process of updating theirs now. I’m not sure how long this will work.
I plan on updating this to the “official” library as soon as I can because I know I’m going to get a lot of use out of this. Once I do that then I’ll post these scripts and open up my server (since I doubt it’ll get that much traffic from this).
Anyway, I hope this provides some inspiration for others.
