A thread to share some coding techniques for QuickApps? Because QD's are "long running scenes" (they don't have to be loaded and restarted for every event) - it is actually worthwhile to build up a library of "nice to have" code and include them in QDs. Here is Fibaro's manual for QuickApps. Here is Fibaro's manual for creating QuickAppChild devices Here is Fibaro's manual for using MQTT client List of posts: Introduction to the QuickApp anatomy - tutorial Part 1. Lua functions and object-oriented programming. (QuickApp is a OO class, so we need that base) Part 2. The basic QuickApp functions and what they do... and how. Part 3. More on QuickApp event handling - interaction with the UI and fibaro.call(<quickApp>,"name",...) Part 4. QuickAppChildren and how to raise them... Logging functions (replacement for color/html tags + tostring for customised data structure) Shared functions calls between QuickApps (Here is an improved version) Off-line HC3api to use fibaro.* calls on PCs/Linux/Mac (fibaroapiHC3.lua) Polling for triggers in a QuickApps (like fibaro.getSourceTrigger()) Here is another method using a helper QA Patching 'setTimeout' so you get an error message if the function crashes A generic template for a QuickApp A simple code-lock QuickApp (demonstrating the UI with buttons) A QuickApp for scheduling user profiles (demonstrates UI buttons that change labels/text to present options) It doesn't' actually schedules the profile yet. (here is a working version) Structuring a QuickApp using event handlers to cope with asynchronous calls - like when using net.HTTPClient() instead of FHTTP(). looping with setInterval (without drifting) A QD reporting if other QDs are crashing (leveraging the "polling for triggers" code) Coding and debugging HC3 QuickApps offline using PC/Mac/Linux and a Lua IDE (and auto-creating a proxy on the HC3) An example of a QuickApp that download and installs scenes and QuickApps from a repository (files in a flat format) Coding and debugging of HC3 scenes using fibaroapiHC3.lua (not strictly about QuickApps but related) - can speed-up time A more complex QD that reads Google calendars or iPhone calendars and schedule custom events (uses the QuickApp structure for asynchronous calls in a previous tip) A substitute for Lua's loadstring() Here is another method of loading code dynamically into a QA Creating proxy devices on the HC3 to share devices between HC2 and HC3 A "webhook" QD - pushing events to external apps Adding interfaces to QA's - ex. power and battery and updating the properties (updates the little battery and power icon UI) @tinman Using '/plugin/publishEvent' to emit 'centralSceneEvent' (and a few other) .... Ex. keyfob QA by @tinman Readers note. I started to call QuickApp devices for QDs (as in QuickApp Device, thought QAs sounded like Question and Answers). So, I use the word QD here and there but I'm not religious about it...
Hi, I am new to Fibaro and I own \, for now, just an HCL plus several devices. I would like to create a Virtual device that toggles a predefined Variable. I have tried this: The code behind each button is, for now, just this: The idea is to to activate heating accordingly: This is the scene to turn Heater On This to turn it OFF Obviously it does NOT work.... What Have I done wrong? I cannot export my Virtual Device, is this doable with an HCL? Can I embed LUA coding in a Virtual Device within an HCL? Additional DREAM: can I change the Icon on my VD according to the Button pressed? Is DEBUGGING possible with an HCL? HOW? Many thanks in advance. Roberto
