A Nightscout Phase for OhMyPosh exhibits 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 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 that means to jot down a Nightscout “section” for my immediate. Nightscout is an open supply self-hosted (there are industrial 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 (by way of 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 section which you can 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 cheerful.

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

When you’ve got an current OhMyPosh json config, you possibly can simply add one other section like this. Make sure 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 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 all the time evaluates to black #000, nevertheless it exhibits you ways you possibly can set it to white textual content on a darker background should 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?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 possibly can set that “http_timeout” (how lengthy earlier than we hand over) should 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 good thing about this new OhMyPosh section over the earlier resolution is that it requires no further providers/chron jobs and could be setup extraordinarily shortly. Notice additionally which you can 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 section 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!
