Note: Crossposted from the MPU forum which has a long thread about the Stream Deck and Keyboard Maestro. That is what got me to share this, and I figured some folks here might not be there.
If you've ever wanted to have your next meeting info on your Stream Deck, checkout my new post over at GitHub:
Here's a little example screenshot. The yellow box shows my next meeting information:
But, to me, the cool part is what happens 30, 15, 10, and 5 minutes before my next meeting:
The changing colors help me spot when a meeting is come up, just in case I have forgotten to set a reminder. (You can choose your own colors if you want different ones.)
My favorite part is that when there are no more meetings left for the day, I get to see Fantastipal smiling at me from that same spot on my Stream Deck:
He's clearly just as happy as I am when there are no more meetings left!
Checkout the Github repo or download the .zip file and you'll get all of the files needed to get setup:
- 8 Keyboard Maestro macros
- ~120 lines of shell script (plus another ~170 lines of comments),
- a version of
icalBuddythat works with Keyboard Maestro
- a detailed explanation of how it all works
- instructions on how to set it up on your Mac.
I hope this helps someone else. Even if you don't use this exact setup, maybe it will show you something else you'd like to try.
