Got it. So I’ve updated my interface to Misterhouse to allow for running an external script and then uploading the data to a specific program. So far it’s working. Thanks again for your help with this.
Two quick things to confirm my understanding.
– So for this to work, the script needs to run at least once a day to upload the new start and runtimes to a program. I think you mentioned running it every 15 minutes, however I don’t know how that helps, since really it just needs the data before midnight to calculate the morning schedule?
– Since this dynamically adjusts a program, the program needs to be set to run every day, correct?
Also, since I call this as an external program I needed to make a few slight changes so that the site libs are found, as well as a path to the output. Here’s my updated file as well as a bash script I use to call the program.
