Re: wifi/3g

The other way is exposing a ported web service to your HOME DNS and forwarding this port via your router. Then EG would be exposed to the internet, but would accept outside commands.

Re: YDKJ controls using web server - need help

I posted a long time ago, javascript that forwards button presses to EG's web service. I also have a python web framework that sends forms and such via the requests module. Hit me up if you need any of these.

Re: Webserver - can it do UTF-8 in any way?

There are two ways you can handle text encoding for the web.

For instance if you are pulling text from a database server you can use:
{{str(variable).decode('latin-1').encode("utf-8")}}

Or if you just want to ignore non ascii characters:
{{str(variable).encode('ascii', 'ignore')}}

Re: Information Needed..

I have a temporarily on hold project (aiming to restart it in January) for home automation that uses eventghost and http://www.opensourceautomation.com/ which I integrated with their command line interface. It worked awesome. If you need assistance I can help.

Re: On Screen Menu over a LAN

Wouldn't the web service be a much easier way to do this? The requests plugin is perfect for this.

Or running a small database (postgres for instance) and having the clients access that database could be all you need to transfer large amounts of data too and from quickly.

Re: "Wait some time" but still let other actions run

The only other way is to launch a python script directly from EG, that runs it's own set of commands and waits. If you need an event to trigger when it's done, just click the check box.

Re: Google Now Integration

Why would you just not let EG launch chrome to that specific page? Would that not be easier?

Re: automatically ticking or unticking of check boxes

You can use eventghost to call PY files by just calling Python.exe and then in the command line options supplying the path to your filename. No need to convert to exe or run in a batch file.

Re: Combining conditions

Just have the system idle and unidle trigger the enabling and disabling of a folder containing the macro. If you send an event to a macro in a disabled folder nothing happens. This is the easiest way I have found to accomplish what you are asking.

Re: Secure Eventghost

I run it as a service on my machines, the only way to change anything is to log in as administrator and launch EG manually.

I use XYNTservice to launch EG as a service. Works awesome.

Re: Upgrading Eventghost's version of Python?

The other thing to think about is you can pass data back and force pretty easily with the local python on the box and EG. EG doesn't have to do all the work, and can instead pass work off onto python scripts. Those scripts can talk back to eg via requests through the HTTP webserver pretty easily... ...

I removed the event so...
