Minimalist: A clean and intuitive touchbar preset (Catalina update)

Hi,

  • when I press and hold the Option key, the macOS System Preferences are opened and closed.
  • Cmd + Z (undo) does not work when this preset is running.

I'm using Minimalist v2.2 | Upload Date: 2018-06-01

cheers

Hi there, this has got to do with the True Tone toggle icon. I will be removing this feature on v2.3 since it constantly triggers System Prefs. But when the community finds a way to fix the True Tone toggle issue, I will update the preset again.

Cheers!

HEY EVERYONE!

New version v2.3 is out!!

Hopefully this version addresses some of the problems you guys are facing! And I've also added support and stablised certain features such as True Tone.

Do let me know if there's anything you want to know, thanks again for the support! :slight_smile:

Hi tmxgkh : great job thank you, it helps me very much. How do you get macOs 's icons like volume down or mute ? I didn't find then on the net. Thanks for any help.

Hey, love the preset it's definitely my favorite, even over what I've created personally. I can't get the gesture controls to work, though. I removed the 4 finger gestures, and changed the 2 finger gestures to keyboard illumination. None of the gestures work though (3 and 2 finger). Any suggestions?

edit: I just deleted and re-added the gestures :slight_smile:

Hi tmxgkh this is exactly what I was looking for : thank you very much !

Hey tmxgkh!

First of all - thank you very much for the preset, for me it's the best base I've found here.

Though, I've got a question relating the itunes "currently playing track" widget - is there a chance to code so it has an option to switch to next track? I'm pretty much sure you know how to do it :slight_smile:

Or maybe anybody is able to help me out?

Thank you in advance!

Best,
Roman

Hey @Ro_your_bro, I'm not exactly sure if this is what you mean. But you could try switching the Predefined Action to Next.

See if this solves your issue, and let me know!

Yes, bro, that's exactly what I need (turned out to be so simple, lol), BUT, I need "Play/pause" button as well. So, perfectly, it would be like if a long tap runs "Next" button and a simple tap runs "Play/pause" as it is now. Is there a chance to code something like this? :slight_smile:

Thanks!

Tried to make this but it's not working :frowning:

Hey @Ro_your_bro, this preset should have already included the Play button which looks like this:

Just to check if the new update of BTT might have wonked out some the presets, check to see if the settings of the Now Playing Widget has the same settings as mine:

In my preset, my long press is coded to launch the Spotify app.

Let me know if the above solves your problem. Your touchbar should look like this at default:

When a song is played on Spotify:

Love the app. Works really well. Only issue is volume/brightness swipes aren't working for me. Any suggestions?

Hi @William_Edmonds, glad you're enjoying it! This seems to be a recurring problem with some users, I suggest you delete them and re-add the gestures, it should work :slight_smile:

Hi! I love the preset thank you so much for making it. Pardon if that has been answered, I couldn't find it. Basically here's my problem:

Every time I quit Spotify or iTunes, the application automatically reopens. If I make the Spotify: Play/Pause: Script the problem goes away, so it must be having to do with that.

This is what it looks like FWIW:

if application "Spotify" is running then
tell application "Spotify"
if player state is playing then return "pause"
end tell
end if

if application "iTunes" is running then
tell application "iTunes"
if player state is playing then return "pause"
end tell
end if

return "play"

Help! Thank you!!!!

Actually, maybe I've fixed it? I edited the script adding "try" and "end try" and it seems to be working!

if application "Spotify" is running then
tell application "Spotify"
try
if player state is playing then return "pause"
end try
end tell
end if

if application "iTunes" is running then
tell application "iTunes"
try
if player state is playing then return "pause"
end try
end tell
end if

return "play"
