Have an idea for an Extension?

Every once in a while, I like to create a simple(something that will take a couple hours or Less to create) extension for members of the community.

If you have an idea for a simple extension please share it here.

Could CURL be wrapped as an extension?

I generally avoid extensions so I can publish in the Gallery, but
this would fill a need for functionality not available in the Web component.

For example, I can do Airtable INSERTs and SELECTs using the Web component’s GET and POST blocks, but I can’t do UPDATE or DELETE operations via their web API.

All I need is the command line functionality, which takes a command line string.

Unfortunately this is outside of my wheelhouse.

Pretty sure you know this already but there is an airtable extension, you can get it here:

you might want to look into a fingerprint sensor extension?

I am seeking an extension for GoogleFit. I want to make my brain scanner data available for tracking just like a heart beat tracker.

  1. Sign in with a Google account
  2. Upload live data
  3. Get data from GoogleFit in a specific time frame.
    Would love it!

An extension to expose the webviewer to the android file system, so that one can use the tag:

input type="file"

in html/javascript to select a file for upload / action

perhaps also providing the user with the option to choose their preferred file manager…

Hi @Ken and others, what about wallpaper extension? There has been several requests about this over the years but only solution from what I can tell is activity starter

Hey, I’m working on a notification system between AI2, ESP8266 and HC05.
I want to ask if is it possible to have an extension that read system/app notification and send them through internet connection and readable from ESP8266 in order to display them on an OLED.
Thank you :grinning:

if there is a solution to use the activity starter, then just use it… no need to create an extension for this

@Juan_Antonio just want to make sure I’m understanding this right. Using your current solution with the webview, you can send information to a WiFi enabled device via WiFi without having to go through a router or the internet? You’d have to be within maybe like 30 feet. And you and @mattiaapoz are wondering if you can get all the notifications from the wifi enabled device back (have the information sent back to you)? And you’re wondering if it is a good idea to make this kind of thing an extension? If this is what you guys are saying and this is possible then I’d strongly urge you two to get working on this immediately. And consider my interest peaked, this is interesting.
