Flic for Mac?



  • @anton I'm not sure how you're judging interest in the the Mac app, but I'd just like to add my name to the list of people saying "This is great!" Also, I would love to be able to add more than one button. What's the best way to find out when there's been an update to the app?

    Is it possible to connect several Flic buttons to one Mac?

    Currently not, but we will add that in a later version as soon as possible.

    Works great for me, even committed code to github, which sends the mac to sleep.

    Have you thought about open-sourcing the tool, and not just the scripts?

    Yes I have thought about that, but we have not made any decisions yet. We will think about it.

    What is the "Button Down / Up" thing?

    So, the original reason I bought Flic was the automate my time tracking for work. I switch tasks frequently at work and wanted a way to track time with a physical device. I could never quite get things the way I wanted using Flic > IFTTT > Google > Excel > Pivot Table > ERP System. But, now with this and 65 line of AppleScript I now have cut out IFTTT and Goole and have far superior integration. Thanks! I can't wait to see where this goes.

    Thanks! This is a bit of a pet project of mine so I really appreciate the positive feedback :) Hopefully we can make something nice out of this!

    As to your question. The "Button Down / Up" are actually the raw events that the Flic produces when you push the button. Down is sent when you as soon as you press down on the button and up as soon as you release it. This not only gives better response time, but it also means that you are able to detect "custom" press events if you like, morse code perhaps :P

    The Click/DoubleClick/Hold events are generated from the down/up events. You will notice that the click event takes longer time to arrive than buttonDown and that is since the program needs to wait a little while to see if a second click arrives. This is to distinguish between click and doubleClick.

  • This is great, now I can have a physical code build and deploy button.

    @andrecarlucci

    We have been thinking about that as well. Might come in the future, but it is not as straight forward as for Mac/Linux in my opinion. I don't know if it makes sense to have an application that triggers .bat/.exe-files on windows, but we are considering it. If you have any ideas or suggestions then let me know!

    ool!
    Have a hard time getting it to work though.
    When it finally found my button it got stuck on "connecting

    Ok, strange.. Have you tried to power bluetooth off/on just in case there is some issue with the bluetooth module? If you still can not get it to work then post an issue on github with some further info about your setup (computer, os, etc) and I'll try and help you troubleshoot it!



  • Cool!

    When it finally found my button it got stuck on "connecting" :/



  • I would love to see what people cook up with Flic & Alfred.



  • @anton Nice, can't wait for the Windows version :)



  • Oooh I'm gonna have flic start/stop my entire dev enviroment "on the flic of a button" ;)



  • Nice. Works like a charm!
