Sure, I have created it for you. I can update the category image if you provide a little one you'd like to have.

Hi @Andreas_Hegenberg,

I've crafted an icon for that category, but I'm not too sure about it's balance and spacing. Oh well, it'll do I guess, My eyes say no but my mind (and my rulers) say yes :?

Hello yyuuiko,

Long time lurker here but first time posting. After discovering BTT, I've tried every preset on this website and found yours to be best suitable for me. I finally created an account so I can express my gratitude and show you some appreciation on your work. Also, thank you too the BTT creator for revolutionizing the Touch Bar. As a huge music fanatic & singer, I mostly utilize the media control center and expanded more on the Spotify widget. After some customization, I just wanted to show you how I expanded more with the Spotify controls and if you wanted to implement any ideas I borrowed from other people on this site.




When expanding spotty now playing widget, I added a lyrics bar I found from another member on this site and as well as a playlist button. When pushing the playlist button (which is the block logo), it randomly switches to another playlist I set up. If you press and hold the playlist button, it opens up my playlist selection I created on Spotify.

For someone who listens to music 24/7, this function is very very useful for me. It allows me to control my Spotify without having the software displayed on my screen.

So again, thank you thank you thank you for all your work. I've never studied or know anything about coding, but I bought some books to learn python thanks to BTT.

PS: I customized a lot on the color/design to better please my eye, I'm not sure if this is offensive to the programming/coding world. So please excuse my lack of internet mannerism.

Hai @Keno_Thourakhome!

Your changes look great! If you don't mind, I'd really like to have a copy of it so I could see it in action! (pretty interested in that playlist stuff you got there!)

I'm glad you're enjoying AQT too, comments like yours are really encouraging! Thanks for the feedback.
I've been looking to know how well AQT is fitting other people's workflows and, well yours was original and interesting to read through.

A new version is coming soon, I'm just sorting out a few issues with it and implementing the last run of features. Where you aware that I teased some new iTunes controls above? I'd like your say about it!
(It has also been adapted for spotify since that post.)

And no, I don't see customising the colours and design offensive to the programming, I'm more into the design more than the programming anyway, I did start this with zero applescript experience after all :smile:

My favorite thing about your preset is how you didn't sacrifice the macOS OEM controls.

Yes I saw it. The time scrubber & like/dislike button is awesome. That would be useful since I always rewind songs when practicing and memorizing lyrics. When I find the time, I wanna figure out how to add those functions to Spotify as well since its my main music player. The iTunes tab is awesome too distinguish which music program is running(instead of an x button).

What I'm really excited for in your next update is how you'll implement the 1keyboard app. I use this app to control all my apple products in the house (Apple TV & iPad) and having a touchbar button would be very convenient.

Heres a copy of my present for the Spotify controls.

Sorry, I haven't looked into that latley as I've been quite busy. I just had a quick look.

The schedule widgets are run using iCalBuddy's terminal commands. I've checked what commands I can use and these strike my eye:

  'eventsToday'      Print events occurring today
  'eventsToday+NUM'  Print events occurring between today and NUM days into
                     the future
  'eventsNow'        Print events occurring at present time
  'eventsFrom:START to:END'
                     Print events occurring between the two specified dates

Currently, eventsToday and eventsToday+NUM is being used.

eventsNow looks promising, but I have a feeling it'll return a blank if there are no events now.

eventsFrom doesn't seem all that useful for this case, but I'm sleepy and not really thinking at all right now XD

I have a feeling it might be possible by comparing eventsNow with theh current thing, i'll experiment.

Sorry for the wait! This one is pretty complicated if you have seen the code :confused:

Hi Everyone, it's time to Hype up the next update!

I'd just like to get some opinions here, is there anything missing that you'd want to see in AQT v3.4.0?


Oh, did you want to see how it all looked like? :wink:

That's a secret for now! Tease~

I've fixed the problem (not by showing the solution, but to show more events at one place, creating the idea of a widget).

Important to have font size 7 justified (or maybe bigger for just two lines)

Code
set upcomingEvents to do shell script "/usr/local/bin/icalBuddy -n -ea -nc -ps \"|β€’ |\" -iep \"title,datetime\" -po \"datetime,title\" -tf \"%H:%M\" -df \"%b %d\" -eed eventsToday+7 | awk -F \"β€’ \" '{print toupper(substr($2,1,1)) tolower(substr($2,2))\" \"$3}'"

set eventsList to theSplit(upcomingEvents, "

")


set output to "a"
set outputb to "b"
set outputc to "c"

--@yyuuiko: if/else had an error so using try instead.
--if the first item of eventsList is not "" then

try
	--@yyuuiko: remove 'Today at ' if available
	set findReplace to item 1 of eventsList
	if "Today at" is in findReplace then
		--Delete 'Today at'
		set output to replaceText("Today at ", "", findReplace)
		
	else if "Today - " is in findReplace then
		--Delete 'Today at'
		set output to replaceText("Today - ", "All-day - ", findReplace)
		
	else if "Tomorrow at " is in findReplace then
		--Delete 'Tomorrow at '
		set output to replaceText("Tomorrow at ", "", findReplace)
	else
		set output to findReplaces
	end if
end try

try
	--@yyuuiko: remove 'Today at ' if available
	set findReplaces to item 2 of eventsList
	
	if "Today at" is in findReplaces then
		
		--Delete 'Today at'
		set outputb to replaceText("Today at ", "", findReplaces)
		
	else if "Today - " is in findReplaces then
		
		--Delete 'Today at'
		set outputb to replaceText("Today - ", "All-day - ", findReplaces)
		
	else if "Tomorrow at " is in findReplaces then
		
		--Delete 'Tomorrow at '
		set outputb to replaceText("Tomorrow at ", "", findReplaces)
		
	else
		set outputb to findReplaces
	end if
	
end try

try
	
	--@yyuuiko: remove 'Today at ' if available
	
	set findReplacess to item 3 of eventsList
	if "Today at" is in findReplacess then
		
		--Delete 'Today at'
		set outputc to replaceText("Today at ", "", findReplacess)
		
	else if "Today - " is in findReplacess then
		--Delete 'Today at'
		set outputc to replaceText("Today - ", "All-day - ", findReplacess)
		
	else if "Tomorrow at " is in findReplacess then
		--Delete 'Tomorrow at '
		set outputc to replaceText("Tomorrow at ", "", findReplacess)
	else
		set outputc to findReplacess
	end if
end try

return output & return & outputb & return & outputc

	-- save delimiters to restore old settings
	set oldDelimiters to AppleScript's text item delimiters

I'm not sure what you did here... From what I can pick up, this is a two-line adaption for the front widget?

When set to Always Next;

  • It will look if there is an event occuring now.
  • If there is none, it will grab the 1st next event.
  • If there is, it will grab the 2nd next event, skipping the 1st next event which would be the current event.

The logic sounds simple but it took quite some hours to implement :wink:

Hello! Complete and utter novice here, I understand next to nothing about BTT. I recently bought a new MacBook and wanted to be fancy so I downloaded AquaTouch. It's great!

However, one question. For some reason when I go to iTunes (which is frequent) the touch bar resorts back to the default iTunes bar. You know, the one with the giant scrubbing timeline? Is this intentional? It prevents me from using gestures, the only app in which it does this which makes it kinda frustrating. Is there a way for AquaTouch to go to the 'Play' button, where it shows the song currently playing?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hi @celtics345!
I'm glad you're liking AQT!


As regards to your question, yes, this is intentional behaviour for now.

There are two types of sets, Full sets and Extension sets.

iTunes is one of those apps that has an extension set. These are designed only to be opened briefly to access quick, extra controls. Since AQT v3.3.0, the icon on the control strip indicates what type of set it is:

Other than iTunes, you may notice this type of set for Finder, Safari, TextEdit, etc.

Recap: yes, this is by design. It's made so that you use the native set while having the option to occasionally open AQT up for extra controls.


Due to your feedback I've decided to upgrade the iTunes set and make it functional enough to replace the native set! It'll be somewhat like my new Spotify set!


P.S.

p.s. the new update comes with updated spotify and Now Playing widgets!
AquaTouch -- Supports 40+ apps and websites, AND the native TouchBar!
