    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.

    HTML Parsing

    Rob · 2 replies · Last reply by João Dias

    It would be great if autotools had an html parser (there are quite a few parser libraries that could possibly be used to make this easier to implement). This would enable me to grab content from websites that don't provide an xml or json feed of data (such as a train timetable page that doesn't offer an API), or to do things like check for updates on a particular part of a website (e.g. the html element containing the price of a product on a shopping website).

    Auto brightness read setting

    Daniel Jenkins · 2 replies · Last reply by João Dias

    I'd like to be able to read the adaptive brightness setting as on or off. Currently can only read brightness level in Tasker. Can set it in Tasker, just can't read it's value

    Color Picker

    Lemuel Sacop · 1 reply · Last reply by João Dias

    Hi Joao,

    Good day! Much like the text processor of auto tools, would it be awesome if we can also have color picker or color processor in auto-tools that will return the hex value into a variable of the picked color when you share a picture.

    Wake PC on LAN/WAN

    Lemuel Sacop · 1 reply · Last reply by João Dias

    Hi Joao,

    I would like to propose an idea to add wake on LAN/WAN in Auto Tools. As I have a small plugin with this just one purpose and i would like to finally uninstall it. I believe it will be great addition to auto tools and a perfect fit.

    Week number variable

    I would find it helpful to have a variable accessible through the Time menu that returns the week number of a current or specified date. Selectable week numbering systems could include the ISO standard, US-style, etc. as per https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Week#Week_numbering

    Encrypt\Decrypt text in a variable using a password with a known encryption algorithm (e.g. AES)

    Could be useful for sending data to a server without worrying about the contents being public.

     

    Thanks.

    Numberize Numbers

    Tasker Pro · 2 replies · Last reply by Tasker Pro

    Feature to insert comma's (or delimiter of choice) into long numbers so 10000000 can be changed to 10,000,000

    Just gotta make sure to keep them only to the left of the decimal. So 10543.3456 only becomes 10,543.3456 and not 10,543.3,456

    EDIT: Maybe could call it "Commatize" (lol) and put it right next to "Monatize".
