Hey there !
I’ve been using MPC (and now Onyx) for a while, and I’ve been feeling some frustration when repeating the same actions over and over again. Onyx’s UI does not provide enough automation for some repetitive tasks, at least not yet.
LUA seems to be a solution, unfortunately I don’t find as much documentation as I would like to. I’m a software engineer and I would love to be able to contribute on my spare-time to either Onyx/third party tools to enhance my user experience with Onyx.
Here is so far the links that I found, a lot of them look outdated.
LUA scripts drive (@Sylvain_Guiblain): https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B3xs6jZgU6sgZFotY1psOVlpSVE
RD/Showcockpit seemed like a great solution to LUA script, but to be quite honest I refuse to spend 300 bucks to have access to a LUA scripting engine
My questions are:
- how to communicate with Onyx ? Is there any API/ inter-services communication documented somewhere ?
- If I’m not mistaken, neither MPCTool or Showcockpit are open-source. Any open-source equivalent ? Obviously LUA scripting is used by a minority of users, and this minority would appreciate having an open-source project for contribution and documentation purposes.
