Re: Beginner questions

Where does the URL go? This is what is now contained in js: {text=1.52, callSignNames=m0tff, transmitterGroupNames=all, emergency=false} That looks perfect but not sure where the error is in the last part in the execute command. This is what I get back in stderr: sh: syntax error: '(' unexpected I w...

Re: Beginner questions

Thanks for getting back to me. In Tasker, I just copy the script into the Run Shell action and it works. Curl is built into some versions of Android from what I can see. For example, on my Android 7.1.1, my Tasker curl script works but on my other phone that is Android version 7.0 the curl script do...

Re: Beginner questions

Really appreciate the comprehensive answers as they are teaching me more than I'm asking which is really helpful in learning how to use Automagic. The first bit I have working perfectly now and I used the findAll, not sure if to call it a function or command. The next part of my script involves usin...

Re: Beginner questions

That's very helpful. My next question/project is a little more complicated and was done in Tasker and I'm trying to convert it to work in Automagic. It basically does an HTTP get request and I then splits the variable to get my needed text. First part is a simple HTTP get request and I now have the ...

Re: Thinking of switching over from Tasker

I'm just writing simple flows to get used to it.

I write one that produces random numbers from 1 to 10
Then show you the number. If 10 it will exit the flow and if 5 it will say you have the magic number. :)

Beginner questions

I'm going to be creating lots of simple flows just to get my head around how things work.

I'm writing a very simple flow to ask a user to pick a number from 1-5 and then display the result.

The first obstacle is how/where do I specify what variable name to use for my input dialog?

Thanks

Thinking of switching over from Tasker

I have been using Tasker for about 3 months and have done lots with it especially with regards to Automation and using the Autoinput plugin. The reason I went for Tasker in the first place, as I have purchased both programs, was because of the sheer amount of tutorials available on youtube and the i...

I run an app that makes money by playing various adverts 24/7 I have noticed 2 adverts that make my phone vibrate even though they are set to do not disturb mode. The first is a ca...

Re: Desperately need help with this problem.

Next question is where is the best place to learn how to use Automagic? I have had experience a long time ago with programming in Visual Basic 5 and a bit of .Net I have also done an Introduction to Java and Javascript and done a bit of C# and Pascal. So I'm hoping that this will help me even if I'm...
