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



I’ve talked about how I like a pleasant fairly immediate in my Home windows Terminal and made movies displaying intimately tips on how 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 “Staff 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 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 rancid readings assist) Nightscout phase that you may setup in only a few 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.

When you’ve got an present OhMyPosh json config, you may simply add one other phase like this. Ensure that your Nightscout URL features a safe Token or is public (as much as you). Observe additionally that I setup “if/then” guidelines in my background_templates. These are elective and as much as you to alter 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 may see it at all times evaluates to black #000, however it reveals you ways you would set it to white textual content on a darker background in case you wished.

{
"sort": "nightscout",
"type": "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 are going to 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 may set that “http_timeout” (how lengthy earlier than we quit) in case you 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 advantage of this new OhMyPosh phase over the earlier resolution is that it requires no extra companies/chron jobs and will be setup extraordinarily rapidly. Observe additionally that you may customise your template with NerdFonts. I’ve included a tiny syringe!

What a lovely prompt with Blood Sugar!

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