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 exhibiting intimately the right way to 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 “Workforce OhMyPosh” I’ve been which means to jot down a Nightscout “section” 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 lively 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, identical 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 off readings assist) Nightscout section that you could 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 cheerful.

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

In case you have an current OhMyPosh json config, you possibly can simply add one other section like this. Ensure your Nightscout URL features a safe Token or is public (as much as you). Be aware additionally that I setup “if/then” guidelines in my background_templates. These are non-obligatory and as much as you to vary to your style. I set my background colours to pink, yellow, inexperienced relying on sugar numbers. I even have a foreground template that isn’t actually used, as you possibly can see it at all times evaluates to black #000, but it surely reveals you the way you could possibly set it to white textual content on a darker background if you happen to wished.

{
"kind": "nightscout",
"model": "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?rely=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 possibly can set that “http_timeout” (how lengthy earlier than we surrender) if you happen to really feel this slows you down. It’s going to be cached for five min so it is unlikely  to b one thing you may discover. The good thing about this new OhMyPosh section over the earlier answer is that it requires no extra companies/chron jobs and might be setup extraordinarily shortly. Be aware additionally that you could 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 section with mmol assist in addition to strikeout model for “stale” (over 15 min outdated) outcomes. You are additionally welcome to assist out by watching our YouTube and submitting a PR!
