    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?

    Data counters, sysfs reader

    I was trying to write a Tasker profile that switches WiFi hotspot on when Bluetooth tethering transferred more than defined limit in a time interval.

    With a bare Tasker it is a complicated task. It would be nice to have:

    Data counters with atomical read and reset, and event/state, when particular interface appears/disappears.

    And generic sysfs readers that reads value to a variable and handles missing file. This would be possible with a bare Tasker, but it does not have check File Exists.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Samsung Air View (S Pen or Fingers)

    Lemuel Sacop · 0 replies · Posted

    Hi Joao,

    I am not sure if this is possible, or a perfect fit to Auto Tools Secure Settings or maybe to Auto Input, and this is specific only to a Samsung Notes' models. I would like to propose if we can know if Air View is on and off into a variable, what kind of Air View is enabled (S Pen or Fingers or both), and then if it is possible to return the app name, or the text, or the image path that I am hovering over into a variable. Then I can use this variable that contains

    I would like autotools to do entity extraction on pieces of text. Like detect phone numbers, email addresses and names of places and people to name a few.

    JSON write -> update should accept multiple filter values

    Rob · 0 replies · Posted

    When running the JSON write -> update command, there only appears to be the option for a single Field & value for the filter. Could it instead accept multiple fields and values like the JSON Read action does?

    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).

    Allow users to create their own Java Functions to be used via Android JavaScript Interface

    Andrew · 0 replies · Posted

    Similar to how in the current Tasker JavaScript(let) actions, there are built in functions (http://tasker.dinglisch.net/userguide/en/javascript.html)

    This idea would basically expand on that and allow you to create your own built in functions that can better handle the Android side of things when writing JavaScript. 

    See original posting of the idea here on reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/androidapps/comments/5ag991/request_tasker_plugin_to_add_custom_java/)
