@tcbeatie Cool! Good that you solved it. Regarding the triggers, as you see we do provide the "raw" buttonUp and buttonDown events. This means that you should be able to create a script in which you can define your own click types. Also, have a look at flic-service-osx if you ever feel like making something even more complex ;)
I saw references to that, but not sure how to implement. Easiest might be a triple click?
My current use case is a button in the kitchen that controls the mac next door; volume up/down/pause|play is easy.. A triple click to do something cool like speak the weather would be awesome :)
