Is there a manual / reference guide or similar?

Post by pd04856 » 27 Feb 2013 08:43

Hi,

I´ve just discovered the power of Automagic and from what I can see it´s by far the most comprehensive and powerful automation tool for Android, not to mention the brilliant UI!

I´d like to make use of scripting and variables; however I fail to find documentation. Is there a manual that explains all the features?

Greetings from Wuppertal/Germany

Hi,

Every trigger/condition/action has its own help page accessible using the [?]-button on the right side of the type dropdown.

You can also access the component-help on the web:
http://automagic4android.com/en/help/components
or in german:
http://automagic4android.com/de/hilfe/komponenten

You can find the description for the scripting language and variables here:
http://automagic4android.com/en/help/co ... ion_script
or in german:
http://automagic4android.com/de/hilfe/k ... ion_script

There is also a short tutorial to create a flow with a variable (see step 5):
http://automagic4android.com/en/help/cr ... first-flow
respectively:

Regards,
Martin

Martin,

thanks for your quick reply. I suppose I can work with that. I was hoping that there is a pdf document that allows me to get inspired :idea: more easily...

Regards,
Jost

Martin,

Because you have all the html pages for the components, maybe you could pipe them through something like wkhtmltopdf to convert them to a PDF file. Just skimming the following link, it even appears it will build a table of contents as well. This is the site where I found out about it: http://www.cyberciti.biz/open-source/ht ... -software/.

Thanks for the fantastic change to the UI in the flow list area. It looks great, much easier to read, and with the on/off switch is handy.

I love automagic but I have hard time with the scripting language.

I have read the help pages on the web and the examples but I am still lacking some basic information may be due to my lack of scripting experience.

I was wondering if this scripting language is specific to automagic or if it is based on more known one and if I could find more documentation and 101 tutorial on that?

Automagic script is specific for Automagic use only, no where to find in other app/platform. You can read my general suggestion to learning about the scripting here : viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6899&p=18694&hilit=python#p18686

Until now, I still suggest python (you can use it to integrated automagic to eventghost) and javascript (probably the closest language to Automagic's scripting). But to honest, I never really finish the standard tutorial for both language. I can say for now, Automagic scripting is the one that I use the most. I can code so efficiently in Automagic but very difficult to do the same even in python. You can always ask here or browse my index for maybe some similar cases to solve your problem.

I think java is a base language.

I like the new look of the web pages, but to honest it was good before when there was one big linear page for each of Actions, Triggers and Conditions. It meant I could search across the titles of the Actions, Triggers and Conditions as well as their content . It was thus easier to find things where I couldn't remember the titles. This would also have made it easy for the OP to "print to PDF" to get a paper manual. ;-)

Oh, I don't know there homepage has changed. The first index page is more appealing now.
But for the manual, yeah, same with @Wibbly, I prefer the content to be on the same page, so I can scroll and find the keyword of unknown function.
I know it will make the page loading slower, so maybe leave a link at the bottom : "click here for full action content"

I had to split the pages since the pages became just too huge to display on some devices/browsers but I understand that a single huge page can also be useful at times so I now generate both.

The huge versions are based on v1.38 and not yet linked on the main site but you can already access the pages here:

Everything combined: en de
Triggers: en de
Conditions: en de
Actions: en de

Martin
