    Control Accessibility via Secure Settings

    Ian Grody · 1 reply · Last reply by João Dias

    After tinkering with Android TV boxes, a lot of them were void of Accessibility menu in the UI, so such services could not be accessed. Via ADB, I was able to enable apps to use Accessibility by use of settings.

    'settings put secure accessibility_enabled 1'

    AutoTools could check for the BIND_ACCESSIBILITY_SERVICE in apps, check it's exported service and enable it.

    settings put secure enabled_accessibility_services net.dinglisch.android.taskerm/MyAccessibilityService

     

    This has worked on two TV boxes running Android MM.

    App shortcuts in Nova Launcher

    Georg Trede · 1 reply · Last reply by João Dias

    I'm not sure how far this is possible, but it would be a very cool thing: There's already the App Shortcut action for Android 7.1, maybe it is possible to transfer it to launchers as the Nova Launcher. Some apps provide that, I'm not sure, whether Nova did that or the apps themselves... But one could give it a try.

    Enable/disable Single app notifications

    dragone17 · 2 replies · Last reply by dragone17

    I am talking about the option to enable/disable the notification on a per-app basis.

    On my phone (LG G3 with a stock based rom) is in settings - apps - [app name] - notifications (may not be the correct terms as english is not my first language)

    like my other suggestion, is something that the old secure settings does and I can't find anywhere else.

    Web session

    Georg Trede · 1 reply · Last reply by João Dias

    You start a web session and it stores all cookies and that stuff for you, that you don't have to filter it out, store it and send it again. This is pretty easy in python, so maybe as well for AutoTools?

    QR Code Dialog

    Karl Wood · 1 reply · Last reply by João Dias

    While messing with AutoBarcode, it occurred to me that being able to display a text string as a QR code in an Autotools dialog has two use cases

    1. Debug, like the Linux kernel has. Link
    2. NFC functionality for sending e.g a text message between two phones without RF communication.

    It's here in case anyone is interested, for fun. No worries if anyone thinks it's pointless.

    (Including ZXing is probably bloat in this context, using a web service for a dialog is weird. :)

    Use Sensor.TYPE_LIGHT instead of finding the int value

    Peter Thornton · 1 reply · Last reply by João Dias

    Hi

    I am having difficulty finding the correct sensor int value for the light sensor. All the documentation online refers to Sensor.TYPE_LIGHT.

    Is it possible to change the autotools event to use the string (Sensor.TYPE_LIGHT) instead of the int (not sure what it is yet, i cant find it)?

     

    Thank you

    Peter

    Dialog timeout and text access.

    Karl Wood · 2 replies · Last reply by Karl Wood

    Being able to access the text entered into an input dialog box after a timeout would make the voice recognition feature even better.

    Adjust adaptive brightness level

    Jimmy Nejmeh · 2 replies · Last reply by Jimmy Nejmeh

    I have a Google Pixel with Android v7.1.1. With AutoTools, I can read the adaptive brightness level (it's screen_brightness_auto_adj). It will range anywhere from 0.0 (slider all the way to the left) to 100.0 (slider all the way to the right). But if I try doing a custom setting to set it, I get the "Can't change setting on this device. You cannot change private secure settings." I've done the ADB command to grant AutoTools the WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS permission, but still can't get it to work. It would be great to have a way to set this in AutoTools.

    AutoTools smart lock

    Mrstark · 4 replies · Last reply by João Dias

    Hello, I propose my idea to use autotools to make smart lock (as did the secure settings application before nougat), for example to disable the password on a trusted site or based on wireless network connected, in hope to see this function on autotools;)

    Disable the window for dialogs on recents apps

    Everytime a dialog is created, it remains on my recents apps, which I really hate... It would be great to have a update which they won't appear in recents.

    Why not just update the original Tasker app

    Fionnafire · 1 reply · Last reply by João Dias

    Like seriously, all I see you doing with all these auto extensions to Tasker is squeezing more money out of people by making them buy the full version of all these other apps.
