Demo of TRIGGERcmd with Alexa and Song Master
A very rough and ready demo of what is possible.
Nice job @Steve-Lee! Thanks for doing this.
Adding your blog post here too:
One thing you could do is create an Alexa routine that converts, "Alexa, next setlist" to the longer command:
"Alexa, ask tc to run mac setlist with parameter next"
@Russ Good idea, thanks!
I've yet to explore routines. They do increases the number of places to configure though. And no nice text file way with Alexa!
I did try adding words to created a new command
- mac setlist ...
- mac setlist next
But it doesn't work due to the way Alexa always matches the first one
So I'd have to add multiple 3 word items. Yuck Shame we can add out own lexicon
I was going to use Routines for repeat timers but on reading the docs they don't take parameters which really limits them for all applications
