To perform the grouping I record the notifications in a sqlite database. In this bank I save the item_id, the season_id and a field that informs if that item has already been notified.

This is the script that your plugin runs in onMediaItemAddedComplete (save-notification.py). The other script runs on a cron schedule. It reads the database and handles notifications. I forward the attached scripts.

save-notification.py 893 B · 1 download telegram-notifications.py 8.02 kB · 1 download

Thank you so so much @kirkj, I'm going to take a look at this today.  That is awesome thank you again! ❤️❤️

I don't know if this is possible using this plugin, and i'm not technically minded at all so i'm really struggling to figure out how to use this plugin.

 

What i'm trying to figure out is if this plugin would be able to pass a newly added Movie title and metadata as variables for a bash script, and if it is possible, how on earth would I do it? This plugin looks amazing and i'm so impressed with what people are able to achieve with it

You pass the parameters in the command that runs your script. In the scripterx configuration it informs which parameters can be used.

I'm using a Python script, and I do the command as in the image:
image.png.765180585deeb876b24ce8f0eacf11ff.png 

The first parameter is mandatory in my script. The second one doesn't, so I use the - and the parameter name. I think for bash it works the same way.

The title is %item.name%.

Thank you so much for your response! So then how do I reference the parameters in my script? And I have no idea if my script is even getting run at all.

 

I have a test script that just echos some text to a file when run, it doesn't need any parameters, just to be executed on playback starting, but when I start playback, the script isn't executed.

You can use Positional Parameters:

echo "Param 1: $1";
echo "Param 2: $2";
echo "Param 3: $3";

sh script.sh param1 40 'param num 2'

Result:

Param 1: param1
Param 2: 40
Param 3: param num 2

 

But not always the parameters passed by Emby will be filled, so you can use Flags:

 

while getopts u:a:f: flag
do
    case "${flag}" in
        u) param_u=${OPTARG};;
        a) param_a=${OPTARG};;
        f) param_f=${OPTARG};;
    esac
done
echo "Param u: $param_u";
echo "Param a: $param_a";
echo "Param f: $param_f";

sh script.sh -f 'param num 2' -a 40 -u 'Param 1'

Result:

Param u: Param 1
Param a: 40
Param f: param num 2

sh script.sh -a 40 -u 'param num 2'

Result:

Param u: param num 2
Param a: 40
Param f:

wow, thank you so much! this will be very useful!

I'm still having trouble getting the script to execute, though. I don't know what I need to do. Hopefully I figure that out

In my tests I used the onPlayBackStart event. It's easier to check what values are sent in variables by the plugin than to keep adding and removing media. Remember to leave the script with permission to execute by the same user that runs your Emby server.

Hello Anthony
Thank you for this very useful plugin.
I have a special environment.
You need to run the shell script in the WinServer environment.
I can use CMD to execute the script normally.
But it has no effect in the Emby ScripterX plugin.
The Emby ScripterX plugin can spread the parameters normally, but it seems that there is no normal execution script.
The same script can be used normally in the linux environment.
Is there anything to help me?

Good morning @ZSZQ, thank you so much for your feedback.  I've not tested bash in Windows environment with ScripterX yet, I'll have to set up an environment and check out what the issue may be.

Just need to make sure everything has access to execute, etc.   Leave it with me!

How do I tell if the show/movie is Paused, rather than Stopped? Neither onPlaybackStart, onPlaybackStopped, or onPlaybackProgress seem to tell me.

During a pause, I want to have certain lights come on very dim, enough to run to the kitchen/bathroom without spoiling the mood.

When it's totally stopped, I want them to come on full brightness.

Hey,

first of all: Scripter X is a gorgeous addon!!!

I´ve 2 questions...

1: Is there a way to set a duration for the message when using sendmessage (as interpreter from settings UI)

2: Is there a way to set a delay or a timer to before s.th. runs? f.e. sendmessage? (I want to display a message when a user starts a session, but i think the message has been sent before the app fully loads... -> no message to see)

thanks in advance

Hi Anthony,

Does the Emby plug in interface allow you to add ScripterX to the context menu of media items like playlists?

So that we might use Scripter X through user triggers not just event triggers....eg Users clicks "..." menu on a playlist and call 'ScripterX event' "UserEvent1".

with the option to use  the current media item, user and device tags in the normal ScripterX way.

This way we could extend the functionality from Emby UI with our own functions.

eg when someone wants

Hello. Since Scripter-X was created i always used this script that send parameters to an .sh script wich run an php script and echo that info on a log file.image.thumb.png.adb4719b66bda42a9b956cf0a30617a7.png

This is the .sh script:

-----------------------------------------

#!/bin/sh

cd "/share/Web/scripts"

sudo /mnt/ext/opt/apache/bin/php update_time.php "${2}" ${5} ${6} ${7} ${8} ${9} ${10} >> /share/Web/logs/shell_logs/emby/update_time_php.log 2>&1

-------------------------------------------

From couple a days this not working anymore.

No error, no nothing. It simply not work anymore.

This is the log when it runs on emby:

Does anybody have onPlaybackStopped working?  I can't get it to execute a sh script.  I have emby running in a docker and onPlaybackStart works fine.  Just can't execute events when stop is run.  I also don't see anything in the logs.  It just doesn't fire.

Any ideas?
