Can't wait for IFTT intergration, I think it will give the lametric a lot more power. For instance, IF the LA Lakers are playing, then send live scores to Lametric display.
Even some smart home integration, IF doorbell is pressed, play tone and display doorbell icon/text.
Keep up the great work guys, you're on the verge of something awesome!
@James, I went back to change the IFTTT word press settings, to change what get's displayed on the LaMetric. I created a new Wordpress action with trigger on the new words, a new LaMetric Indicator App with different icon, unpublished the previous one, and installed the new one, but for some reason, the original content from my test is the only thing that displays. Any idea what I might have done wrong? Is there some cache that's not refreshing possibly? On my mobile device, I can scroll thru all the different default apps, but when I select the one with the newly coloured icon indicating a change, it loads the first first published LaMetric Indicator app. It almost looks as though there's something stuck in the LaMetric device.
I just wish I could either exclude the app from auto scroll, or alternatively reset the app text back to a default (as once I've seen what is essentially a notification from IFTTT, I don't want to see it over and over again)
@James, got it working. Excellent instructions.
@James, quick question... I noticed that LaMetric seems to display the Wordpress title on its own line, before scrolling the body text, which is pretty cool, I don't see anything special in the JSON of my stream, how do you do this?
@James, got it working, the ingredient was available when I edited the recipe, perfect!
@James I appreciate the offer and will certainly give you a shout if I continue to struggle... I'm going to give the body approach another shot now - last time I tried to insert an ingredient into the wordpress title / body it didn't seem to give an appropriate option bar a URL and a load of map related options!
@james, perhaps I'm being silly as I'm pretty much an IFTTT noob (I rely mostly on my home automation systems usually). How can I do this and have LaMetric display data that contains the dynamic data, rather than a fixed title and body?
@james I'm afraid that's not an option... I can inject many dynamic pieces of information into the email (stream type, movie, user etc etc) but url doesn't seem to be an option.
I can however use other types of notification, I wonder if these allow some kind of workaround?
