Re: Pushover Plugin - push notifications

Brilliant.. this is much easier than having to push notifications via Growl / Prowl! Good work!

Computer says no.

Re: Pushover Plugin - push notifications

Thanks for this handy Plugin!

Now for some wishes:

1: Sending to unique device (I currently have 3 devices setup with no way to distinguish which device gets what notification)

2: Sending Variables in the message body:

ie:
set emailBody to "Outdoor Temp: " & value of variable "outsidetemp" & newline
set emailBody to emailBody & "Spa Water Temp F: " & value of variable "spatemp" & newline

:wink:

Re: Pushover Plugin - push notifications

Thanks for the plugin, I was fighting Growl/Prowl when I stumbled across this thread. Much easier and works great.

Anyone know how to use Pushover to send a notification in applescript ?

Thanks

Re: Pushover Plugin - push notifications

A perfect solution to the insane number of text messages I've been receiving from Indigo. I'd also echo the desire to select from multiple devices.

Thanks for pulling this together,

Re: Pushover Plugin - push notifications

I created my own version of this plugin with support to send the message to (only) one device or all devices when the field is emptily.

I notified the developer through github and will discuss with him what/how he wants to integrate what I created.

My new version does (also see screen shot):

- custom application api (or default when empty)
- title
- message
- sound (selected default sound)
- device (can be empty)
- url (can be empty)
- url title (can be empty)
- use indigo variable within title and message (also nested variable within a variable is replaced)

Cheers,

Marcel

Looking forward to this too :)

No thanks, it was no more than 1 hour of work (including learning about the api)...

Re: Pushover Plugin - push notifications

Can you share the updates you made? It looks way more useful with more than just a subject and a message. Would love to get my hands on it.

Re: Pushover Plugin - push notifications

I want to share it for sure but I would like to discuss with the original developer first.

Re: Pushover Plugin - push notifications

I've noticed that if you have multiple triggers that occur at once, and two or more of the triggers contain pushover plugin actions, that you will often only get one of the pushover messages to your device. I'm sure this has to do with completing the first pushover transaction before going onto the second, third, etc.. I resolved this by delaying one of my pushover actions via indigo's settings, but I think this could be dealt with at the plugin level - where each pushover request is put into a queue to be sent.

Anyone else experience this or have any better solutions?

Re: Pushover Plugin - push notifications

@vtmikel I was testing some triggers today that should trigger a pushover message and I found the same issue.

Two triggers were triggered short after each other and only the first pushover message was sent :(

Re: Pushover Plugin - push notifications

Ya. was the plugin author receptive to your additional features? I can take a look at the latest plugin code and make a recommendation on how to update.
