I just wanted to let those of you who are not using Stream Deck know how seriously amazing it can get in tandem with KM.
I needed a timer for tracking work that I do for various clients. I couldn't find anything for Stream Deck that would work for me (and my GF), and since I don't program and couldn't create a plugin, I decided to make one with Keyboard Maestro.
It's rather simple. You press the start/stop button and it just starts counting (doh). I also have a button that switches between multiple clients and also changes the timer so that I can pause the timer for one client, swap, and start (or resume) another timer for different client. And then there is a button that shows current earnings for the time spent for each of the clients.
It works like a charm (after I ironed out all the kinks) and makes me wonder what other amazing things can be built with the Stream Deck plugin that KM offers. What cool stuff with direct feedback on the Stream Deck have you guys built?
One last thing… if anyone knows how to make the timer absolutely precise, I am all ears. For the counter itself I am basically using a loop that is adding 1 (second) to the counter and then waits a certain amount of time. I had to manually adjust the time so that the whole loop takes roughly a second, but I would obviously prefer something that is absolutely precise. Thanks!
Here it is. It's a mess though! Again, I don't have any skills so it's kinda just patched together. I also ran into some problems with clipboards as I am using KM on 2 PCs. In the end I gave up and so there is a "#06" clipboard instead of "00" used for zero.
