Blinkstick and Snarl


#1

Today I´ve found out that Blinkstick works perfectly together with Snarl. Snarl is a notification system for Windows. It reminds me to systems like IFTTT etc. You have a notification source (like Memory Check, Pressed Keys, Time, Network Connections changes and so on) and a destination (send mail, show tray balloon, run file…). Connect them with a rule and be notified.
A tutorial on the Snarl website shows, how to redirect a notification to a blink(1) from ThingM. Based on this tutorial I´ve made my first steps with Snarl and Blinkstick.

Snarl Tutorial

Take the tutorial as it is but in Step 2 add two new schemes looking like that:

You have to set the target to the full path of the Blinkstick command line tool.

This rule simply reminds you if you have an active caps lock. But there are a lot more events that can trigger your Blinkstick.

So have fun with Blinkstick and Snarl :wink:
