  • Scene number?

    Why use any individual scene code at all? Per the reference docs you cited, if you define a scene_prolog global (presumably with the exact same code as your existing executeSceneNumber) that should work directly.

    Ok, not had much luck with the variations I tried, 😞

    One thing I did notice was that the luasec version on VeraPlus is v0.4 and the openssl version is v1.0.2

    # openssl version OpenSSL 1.0.2l 25 May 2017

    Checking the luasec guidance here, https://github.com/brunoos/luasec/wiki/LuaSec-1.0.x , that VeraPlus openSSL version supports luasec v 1.0.x ?

    Without being able to install/use Luarocks, any idea how to upgrade from luasec 0.4 to 1.0.x?

    You’ll probably need to get it by hand. Ie, write a small page with some JavaScript hosted somewhere that will get the code and that you’ll have to copy and paste manually.

    Never thought I’d utter these words; but I’ve been a bit prolific of late building plugins !! (9 in the last month or so )

    ok, so they may not be the most elegant in design, but they all seem to work, which is the main thing 🙂

    Working on number 10, I’ve returned to the error handling topic, as I’m curious about the pros/cons of luup.set_failure() vs luup.device_message()

    luup.set_failure seems so impersonal and rigid (creating multi-variables) compared the device_messages - what is the value of set_failure over say a ‘job error’ red device message ?

    What are peoples thoughts ?

    No, sorry - that was my altered version 🙂

    I had changed it from using two separate functions to just the one. I tried to do as you said, but I couldn’t see what else I could remove without breaking it ?

    Yes, i think you’re right, i love how coding this sort of thing make me have to think differently 🙂

    I’ve also started to add a multi_state_button too, but classic vera UI, I just can’t get it positioned where I want it too go..

    83123BB1-1401-4B29-B034-9B921793BDA2.jpeg

    I really want the on/off toggle button to be in line with the “Output 1” wording, and the right chevron “>”

    Worse case I revert to a standard button, current .json is pasted below., if anyone can find out how to lift it up a level/row..

    I managed to get it looking roughly right on the Control Tab, see below.. but this positioning is not reflected on the main UI (see image above)

    @parkerc said in Lua : http(s) request, works on some URLs, but not all ? But all work via the browser..:

    Admittedly it would be really nice if (one day) Vera could have an all encompassing http/web module

    Sadly, I don't think anything new will be coming to Vera from here forward...

    Thanks @toggledbits - it’s all working now !! 🤞🤞🤞

    My last piece is back to my other post around error handling, and how I can present that better to the user, and so for that topic, I;ll revert back to that thread.. - > https://smarthome.community/topic/777/luup-error-handling/9

    Thanks @toggledbits ,

    I really do like the simplicity of that storage.set and storage.get .and the potential for a persistent store.

    I did find some discussions on the Vera site, https://community.ezlo.com/t/where-to-store-persistent-data-from-lua/184647/2. plus I did do a quick surf and found a few examples, sadly while the first one looked promising depends on SQLlite, which I’m not sure can run on Vera.

    https://github.com/interfaceware/iguana-tools/blob/master/shared/store.lua

    This seems to relate to what you said about using files.

    @librasun said in Get your Alexa replies to the device you've asked them to with VeraAlexa plug-in:

    I always know the day the cookie expires, even before MSR sends me the warning, because a very specific nighttime Rule (to turn off the screen of my Echo Spot) will fail to run, so the Echo Spot doesn't go "boop" at bedtime. 🙂

    Either my 'Shutting down the power / Sonic deadline is up' (1) won't be said, or the morning temperature report tends to tell me.

    Thank you so much @akbooer , that made it work ! But what’s weird, is that I had tried various different ways too, with the following the closest to yours .

    local hueenergy = require("xxhuewatts") -- lua filename/module huepower = hueenergy.getHueLight -- call lua filename/module and required function luup.register_handler ("huepower", "huewatts") -- register http handler

    When it comes to the ‘syntax’ , why did it like “ GetHueLight” and not “ huepower”

    Does Lua (Vera/OpenLuup?) require me to use capital letters at certain times ?

    So, I've left it running all the night and it's pushing things like a pro to my MQTT broker.

    Bonus points:

    I've finally migrated my dashboard to WebSockets, instead of long-polling. I can't finish to press a button that the UI is updated. Brilliant! I've finally rewritten my own VeraBridge in C#, so no polling and less CPU usage on my Vera I'll probably port more things to my C# app, at this point, since I now have sub-second updates of variables I modified other parts where I was calling http endpoints from my Vera, to push UDP datagrams.

    I still must find some time to fully test openLuup's MQTT broker, but @akbooer you already gave me a lot of inspiration, as always. Thanks!

    Agreed, sadly I only found out about it after I’d create my version 🙂 but it was still a good learning curve, adds a total to it, and allows me to present it in the format that works for me at the time. I wonder how many other hidden bits like this are out there..

    @rafale77 - (FYI) I’ve managed to pick up an Amcrest camera , so it’s going to be interesting to see how they compare to my Foscam .
