A Nightscout Phase for OhMyPosh reveals my realtime Blood Sugar readings in my Git Immediate



I’ve talked about how I really like a pleasant fairly immediate in my Home windows Terminal and made movies displaying intimately how one can do it. I’ve additionally labored with my buddy TooTallNate to place my real-time blood sugar right into a bash or PowerShell immediate, however this was again in 2017.

Now that I am “Crew OhMyPosh” I’ve been which means to write down a Nightscout “phase” for my immediate. Nightscout is an open supply self-hosted (there are business hosts additionally like T1Pal) web site and API for distant show of real-time and near-real-time glucose readings for Diabetics like myself.

Since my physique has an energetic REST API the place I can simply do an HTTP GET (through curl or no matter) and see my blood sugar, it clearly belongs in a spot of honor, similar to my present Git Department!

My blood sugar in my Prompt!

Oh My Posh helps configurable “segments” and now there is a beta (nonetheless wants mmol and rancid readings assist) Nightscout phase that you would be able to setup in just some minutes!

This immediate works in ANY shell on ANY os! You are able to do this in zsh, PowerShell, Bash, no matter makes you content.

Here’s a YouTube of Jan from OhMyPosh and I coding the phase LIVE in Go.

You probably have an current OhMyPosh json config, you’ll be able to simply add one other phase like this. Ensure that your Nightscout URL features a safe Token or is public (as much as you). Notice additionally that I setup “if/then” guidelines in my background_templates. These are optionally available and as much as you to vary to your style. I set my background colours to crimson, yellow, inexperienced relying on sugar numbers. I even have a foreground template that isn’t actually used, as you’ll be able to see it all the time evaluates to black #000, but it surely reveals you the way you would set it to white textual content on a darker background for those who wished.

{
"kind": "nightscout",
"fashion": "diamond",
"foreground": "#ffffff",
"background": "#ff0000",
"background_templates": [
"{{ if gt .Sgv 150 }}#FFFF00{{ end }}",
"{{ if lt .Sgv 60 }}#FF0000{{ end }}",
"#00FF00"
],
"foreground_templates": [
"{{ if gt .Sgv 150 }}#000000{{ end }}",
"{{ if lt .Sgv 60 }}#000000{{ end }}",
"#000000"
],

"leading_diamond": "",
"trailing_diamond": "uE0B0",
"properties": {
"url": "https://YOURNIGHTSCOUTAPP.herokuapp.com/api/v1/entries.json?depend=1&token=APITOKENFROMYOURADMIN",
"http_timeout": 1500,
"template": " {{.Sgv}}{{.TrendIcon}}"
}
},

By default we’ll solely exit and hit your Nightscout occasion each 5 min, solely when the immediate is repainted, and we’ll solely wait 1500ms earlier than giving up. You’ll be able to set that “http_timeout” (how lengthy earlier than we surrender) for those who really feel this slows you down. It will be cached for five min so it is unlikely  to b one thing you may discover. The advantage of this new OhMyPosh phase over the earlier answer is that it requires no further companies/chron jobs and might be setup extraordinarily shortly. Notice additionally that you would be able to customise your template with NerdFonts. I’ve included a tiny syringe!

What a lovely prompt with Blood Sugar!

Subsequent I am going to hope to enhance the phase with mmol assist in addition to strikeout fashion for “stale” (over 15 min previous) outcomes. You are additionally welcome to assist out by watching our YouTube and submitting a PR!
