A Nightscout Section for OhMyPosh exhibits my realtime Blood Sugar readings in my Git Immediate



I’ve talked about how I really like a pleasant fairly immediate in my Home windows Terminal and made movies exhibiting intimately the best way 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 energetic 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 off readings help) Nightscout phase that you may setup in just some 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.

In case you have an present OhMyPosh json config, you possibly can simply add one other phase like this. Be sure 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 non-compulsory and as much as you to alter to your style. I set my background colours to pink, yellow, inexperienced relying on sugar numbers. I even have a foreground template that’s not actually used, as you possibly can see it at all times evaluates to black #000, but it surely exhibits you ways you can set it to white textual content on a darker background in the event you needed.

{
"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 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’ll be able to set that “http_timeout” (how lengthy earlier than we surrender) in the event 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 will discover. The good thing about this new OhMyPosh phase over the earlier resolution is that it requires no extra companies/chron jobs and will be setup extraordinarily shortly. 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 help in addition to strikeout type for “stale” (over 15 min outdated) outcomes. You are additionally welcome to assist out by watching our YouTube and submitting a PR!
