New AutoWeb beta:

You can now easily define default values for any of your API's inputs. These values will be used across all API actions that apply.

So, for example, like in the screenshot you can set the default Kodi Address and Port so that when you setup a new action in Tasker that has those inputs their default values will automatically be applied.

Great time saver :)

As a bonus, here's a video of my latest creation:
- at 12:00 a Kodi icon shows up on my watch and at 15:00 it disappears (I usually watch tv on my lunch breaks)
- if I tap it, a voice screen shows that expects a TV show name.
- if I say a name, it'll find the best match for that name so that even if I say "Shark Bank" it'll still recognize "Shark Tank" (done with AutoTools Text action)
- It'll search for the first unwatched episode of a show with that name with AutoXBMC
- if an unwatched episode is found, it'll turn on my tv to the right input (HDMI3) and start playing it
- if I long click the icon it'll stop playing the episode and turn off my TV

Enjoy! :)

Real question though - in the AT Text action, you're inputting what you spoke as the Input Text, and a list of all available tv shows into the Best Matches field?

What type of algorithm does it use to determine the matches? And is there a limit to how many listings could be put in there, or would it just take longer to process if the list is long?

I created this little thing with Tasker and a handful of AutoApps and one or two other ones!

What I did was create a series of profiles that feed of one another to get the information. In a nutshell you text a specific word and that triggers the whole thing. There are files that get pushed to a webserver and they're manipulated by a PHP script.

Mostly the webserver part was for the formatting of the presentation. I was trying to do it in a text message but entirely to messy! What the mission was so that on the Mrs. travels to NY to see family and friends they could text in an see our progress instead of calling and saying "Where are you now?" =)

Plugins used:
AutoLocation
AutoWeb
FolderSync
AutoNotification
AutoTools

Outside of the android device:
Hosted web service, although you could you something like Xammp on your local machine and get a free dns address. I would do the same thing and of course the php scripts I wrote.

What's cool about it is that everytime it runs the end product in the text message is a goo.gl URL and the color of the web page changes randomly between 16 of the material design brighter colors. No two colors in a row. The webpage gets its own unique generated folder on the webserver (which I'm currently working on a deletion routine) so you can click on old location reports for a little while perhaps the day.

Cool or no?

#AutoWear
Hi.
Im new in smartwatch and AutoWear.
Does AutoWear voice commands works with mobile data enabled on the phone, not wifi? With wifi 'uruchom Walk' (from tutorial, "uruchom" means start) works good, but with mobile data doesn't. Still "trying again" on the screen. Of course, if I click Walk on apps list works good. Sony smartwatch 3

that im not sure about that - i do remember an issue with the new gestures in 1.4

it is possible to have autowear disable/enable its own shake via Tasker, but i doubt the same can be done for the gestures (again a google thing).

Was many Android Wear updates ago that Google seemed to make all the bodges. Personally i hate gestures and especially hate "Ok Google" and Autowear has allowed me to remove my need for them.

So I'm tinkering with #AutoWeb in an effort to make querying my Plex server more efficient. I'm using the API info from https://code.google.com/archive/p/plex-api/wikis though I'm having trouble figuring out how to authenticate my request with my Plex info. Any thoughts?

Hey guys, i have problem. It seems it's not AutoRemote problem, but I can't get this recipe to work. See original post.
Any suggestions?
 
Hello, I have problem with IF(TTT) recipe.

This one, on screenshot doesn't work
IF - new email in inbox from notifications@github.com
Then -> send command to autoremote (Tasker plugin)

Trigger seems working (tested with another email) and action too (tested with another triggers)

What's wrong here?!

Also, make sure to encode anything you send to AutoRemote. Maybe that's what's stopping it from working... You can find a similar example here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tu0NG2xeRDg

AutoVoice ..

I've used it here and there but nothing really constant. Thinking about doing a lot of things with it!

Question I have is do you have it always listening and if so hows the hit the battery? If not are you using OK Google along with your AutoVoice command?

Share with me your settings oh community!

I'm glad I ran across this. I haven't used it in many months (AV Continuous). The last time I tried though I would get a couple of beeps every few seconds or so on my secondary HTC One M7. I'm trying it on my Nexus 6 now.

Has anyone attempted to use Auto Notification with MapMyFitness apps? MampMyRun does have a persistent notification now that displays information about your run and has a Pause/Resume button in it. Since the new Pebble Time does not support MapMyRun, it would be nice to setup a Task to pause and resume tracking or send voice updates to your headset.

I originally tried to do this with AutoInput directly to the App but it was hit or miss. I think I ran into timing issues.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks to the help of our wonderful community who donated so I could purchase the Harmony Ultimate Hub, I just uploaded a new version of AutoWeb that is compatible with the Harmony Hub API.

The API outputted in a format that's not very usual, so AutoWeb couldn't handle it. I've now updated it so that it can handle it.

I'll share the API itself tomorrow after I add all the API endpoints to it.

Here's a small video of a quick demo I made with AutoWeb and an AutoTools dialog.
In the example task I start by listing all my hubs in A1
Then I list all the activities in A2
Then I show a list dialog with those activities in A3
Then I execute the activity with its ID in A5

Thanks again for all your help everyone! :)

Thanks, I had a feeling that's where it was but I never wrote down my password anywhere and couldn't find a location to retrieve it's information within the app (due to not being on the same wifi since I'm not home). I had to DL the software and request a password reset. All works well now! Thanks +João Dias for your speedy response. This is a GAME CHANGER!!!!!

AutoInput Discussion  - 
 
Playing with AutoInput .. i'm just an learning sponge lately!

I was trying to get a query of the 'Alway-on screen' toggle. When I had the option of what I wanted to select from that page I choose the "Always-on screen'" and the "ON" right after it. Gave them a variable name of alwayson for the text part and alwaysonswitch for the toggle.

I wrote

%alwayson() = Always-on screen,Tilt to wake screen,Card previews,Actions,Watch battery,Watch storage,Resync apps
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
alwaysonswitch() = ON,ON,ON
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
App name = Android Wear
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
aitext ()= Connected,ON,Always-on screen,ON,Tilt to wake screen,ON,Card previews,Previews can appear on watch face,ON,Actions,Watch battery,Watch storage,Resync apps,Resync all available apps on your watch,Unpair Watch,Factory resets watch and removes it from this app,Navigate up,LG Watch Urbane

So the mega question is how do you match the variable in one array to the variable in the other array. Follow me?

Note: I changed the Text part of the configuration from "Connected" to "Always-on screen" due to the fact the screen prior to this had the word "Connected" and it was triggering the inquiry.

This will be #3 learned for today and I've only been up an hour and a half! The learning curve is growing exponentially today! =))

Update a nested string=value pair? #AutoTools  

I'm trying to make changes to a JSON output of one of my Philips Hue lights stored in a variable. I retrieve its state by the #AutoTools  JSON Read command and query its fields with JSON Read for e.g. "bri":

{
"state": {
"on": false,
"bri": 254,
"reachable": true
},
"type": "Dimmable light"
}

This query gives me the full path "state.bri" that i like to update by using JSON Write/Update with the setting "Update Fields : state.bri" and "Update Value : 200". Nothing changes - %atjsonresult stays identical to its source variable.

I've tried a lot of spelling variants but do not get a change. I haven't found an example code yet.

Thanks for any comments!

I'm on preview 3 of Android N and Auto Notifications does not work on my Nexus 6p. It does not react to my actions. Works fine on my stock S7 Edge with the same task.

Is there a bug with DP3?

the problem I have with AN is that it doesn't recognize that I've already unlocked it previously (have the separate app installed), and won't let me make an in-app purchase to unlock it anyway (not available for purchase)

I can't seem to get auto input to work with Spotify anymore. I have a task the let's me search a song in Spotify from the clipboard but I can't interact with any elements that aren't part of the side menu.

Basically I want to:

Launch Spotify
Tap the bottom
Tap hamburger
Add to playlist
Tap first playlist

This used to work, I could detect the duplicate warning and click cancel.

Please can somebody that uses Spotify test this so I know if its an issue at my end or a change in Spotify (not sure if they can block it or not).

I have an AutoInput question ...

I want to open the web browser and then scroll one whole length of the screen. I don't want to scroll to the bottom but just to the next whole view-able part of the browser window.

I tried using the easy setup but I'm really not tapping on anything. I just ended the recording and choose scroll down from the action section. The plugin told me that my choices were invalid.

So, how to does on accomplish this wizardry?

Thanks for the help!
