Timemachine in touchbar?

Hi,
Does anyone has an idea to incorporate the timemachine in the touchbar?
I would like to have feedback about:

  • Percentage of backup process
  • Date of latest backup
  • Button to start backup now

Hi,

I've done something like that. It's not a perfect version but a quick hack, although I suppose it can be a good start for you.

It uses a named trigger with a ruby script for showing the info in the menubar, and a shell script for mounting my usb disk, making the backup and unmounting it. The shell script is executed when you click the menubar item.

I just saw that you asked for the touchbar, not the menubar, sorry. I still think that you can use my idea for the touchbar, I'll try to do a preset for that.

Hi!

Thanks, I will try to convert it to the touchbar.
