⏫ v3.5.0 - AquaTouch - Supports 40+ apps and websites, AND the native TouchBar!

Hey, do you already have an idea how this can be done? :smiley:

@Sem_Jalapeno

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 \"|• |\" -iep \"title,datetime\" -po \"datetime,title\" -tf \"%H:%M\" -df \"%b %d\" -eed eventsToday+7 | awk -F \"• \" '{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

		set outputb to replaceText("Tomorrow at ", "", findReplaces)
		
	else
		set outputb to findReplaces
	end if
	
end try

try

		--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

@Sem_Jalapeno

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

@Sem_Jalapeno

I've got it working! I think... Test it out and see what you think.

  • 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:

A three-line adaption :wink:

Oh wow, looks so simple now :see_no_evil: Thanks!

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!

Thanks for the quick response, I really appreciate it. I get it now, the whole full versus extension thing. That makes sense. Only thing is I feel the native iTunes set isn’t functional.

As for you taking my advice and updating it though, awesome news! Wow. Thank you very much for that, can’t wait to try it out!

Hi there!

Sorry for the delays @everyone!

I got swamped with a massive pile of schoolwork (final year.. yay..) so AQT may come later than you expect. My list of to-dos for AQT are shrinking though, and I'll be postponing extra Safari Widget support (Google Sheets, Google Slides, Outlook for Web) in favour for an earlier release date.

My Need To-Do list right now:

So, in summary, Sorry for the wait!! I'm soo busyy!

Guys, after using AquaTouch it completely wiped out my "default" touch bar, so I have virtually nothing there: an esc button on the left, and media button on the right with a small arrow next to it.

How do I reset and return to my default touch bar?

Hi @foratera!

I think you’ve pressed the ‘minimise control strip’ button in the setup instructions. Sounds like that. AQT shouldn’t change any of your system settings unless you choose to do so, but I guess you accidently clicked the button or something.

To revert your control strip, head to:
system preferences > Keyboard > Customise Touch Bar...

Then drag in the default set or whatever you please.

Sorry for the unclear instructions! I’ve had a friend who also had trouble installing so i’ll do my best to fix that up in the next update~

Firstly, amazing bit of work. Really enjoying using it not overwhelming and useful.

Was just wondering how to keep the gestures global? I find using the finger gestures for volume and brightness really helpful, but they don't work when I use Safari or Spotify for instance how do I get this to work? Sorry if noobish on been answered before ( I did search)

Hi @Akshay_Morzeria, Glad you're enjoying it

Unfortunatley BTT Can't affect anything outside of it's little container, so gestures are limited to when BTT is open in the touchbar. I wish I was able to globally adjust gestures too, but due to system limitations it isn't possible for an app to sense it outside of it's bar.

I did contact @Andreas_Hegenberg about this and he said there was a way, but it was way too inefficient and sucked up too much power... you wouldn't want that

Approacing: release of 3.4.0!

All that's left is to update the usage documentation!

* Gasp * there’s a huge changelog.
