There is no function in Pimatic for a rising or falling edge (deutsch: Steigende oder fallende Flanke)
But there is a ìf variable changes
Maybe a if variable changes and variable is true can do the job. But i haven´t tested it

You have a cool idea about pimatic?
RPi Cam Servo Control

Servos don´t have “Steps”, they are controled by PWM. So there is no need for limit switches.

Popup/Toast Error-Message

@michael-rudek well, using an iframe is not a bad idea. However, pimatic isnt designed for displaying custom toast.

Maybe you could try this;
Create a page in the pimatic-mobile-frontend public dir. Add your toast system to that page and load the full pimatic as an iframe.

Now you need to figure out a way to get the information that you want in a toast.

I suggest you look into using the API, and for example, update a variable if there is an error, and get that error to your page through the API.

It a bit clumsy way to do it, but this should work.

All about code

New plugin for Telegram

Hello @zomer,
Great to hear you are happy with the plugin!

Can you clarify your use case scenario? Are you referring to a message sent to Pimatic from a client, or the “send telegram message…” action which sends messages from Pimatic to a client? The latter already allows for Pimatic variables to be used, although not based on a preceding keyword.

Perhaps if you describe a real life scenario on what you would like to achieve it helps to understand what functionality is needed and how to best implement it?

All about rules and script develpopment
Trigger rule with error in log

@leader21 Just quickly reviewed the log-reader code and although not very explicitly clear in the plugin description, it allows for Javascript Regex to be used for pattern matching (see snippet below). The difference @OrtiN suggests, is to be able to provide the pattern as part of the predicate instead of the device config. This should be achievable as added functionality in log-reader I think. Don’t mind forking log-reader and having a stab. Before I do, I’d also like to ask @mwittig if he has any thoughts on the topic.

for line in @config.lines # for a match. matches = new RegExp(line.match).exec(data) if matches? # If a match occures then emit a "match"-event. @emit 'match', line, data, matches return
