Set up a Gmail notifier

After setting up your gmail account, here's the post to show you how to use the %gmailcount% function to create a gmail notifier.

Go to Control Panel/Mail/Setup/Gmail

Type your username and your password and hit save.

Now we need to make a few scenarios. For instance when emails are more than one then respond with the number of them and so forth. But before we get into that, first we need to create the responses.

Go to Instruction Sets menu, hit Add New Instruction Set Add New Launcher and follow the screenshots. [ Update: For a more efficient way to create responses please read this post. ]

No new messages.
 You have, 1, unread message to your g-mail inbox.
You have, %gmailcount%, unread messages to your g-mail inbox.

Now we have to apply the logic we're talking about in a new Instruction Set.

In the action field copy/paste the following evalBool function...

{ evalBool(%gmailcount% <= 0); no-messages; ; } { evalBool(%gmailcount% == 1); gmail-one; ; } { evalBool(%gmailcount% > 1); gmail-count; ; }

One of each conditions will be evaluated and trigger the corresponding reply.

Finally we can make a daemon with the Scheduler, to perform checks every 5 minutes. From Scheduler menu hit Add New and type a name, select repeat in the period drop down, time in milliseconds e.g. 300000 for 5 minutes and action the Instruction Set that calls the evalBool function i.e. gmail. To avoid getting 'No new messages' every time, make a new Instruction Set that missing the no-messages evaluation.

Web of Things and what's new on the upcoming version

In our days, there is a trend to talk about the Internet of Things, Machine to Machine, Web of Things, etc. However all of the above are considered an integral part of the IoT. I won't discuss any of them in detail, since there are too many articles over the internet.

A vast amount of information, is distributed via web services. Web services are an efficient way of communication, that support interoperable machine-to-machine interaction, over a network. As a developer, I need my platform to be able to consume all these services and produce innovative use-cases.

In this post I would like to share some of the latest developments, that would be available in the next version of Jubito. I'm talking about tailor made methods for native XML and JSON deserialization from web service/web API responses.

Some first tests using Yahoo Weather API.



The current release, based on 0.2.5 jaNET Framework comes with full partial support [ Still under development ]. To check the version, go to Terminal tab and type %about%.
