Re: Issue #57 Hack a Dash Button

In case anyone is interested, I've written a blog post detailing how I got the Dash button to work reliably on wireless (Pi Zero W). This includes triggering IFTTT applets and controlling the GPIO pins. It runs very nicely in the background and the Raspberry Pi is still very usable (even via VNC). I...

Re: Issue #57 Hack a Dash Button

A bit more testing revealed that the current Amazon Dash buttons don't even use the "arp" protocol when joining a network. They use "udp". So that whole bit of scapy code would never work, even if it wasn't full of syntax errors! I have now got the button to trigger actions (in IFTTT, although many ...

Re: Issue #57 Hack a Dash Button

Thanks for the replies. I'll give your suggestion a try, Martin. I have to say that I'm very disappointed with this article in MagPi. Given the readership profile of the magazine and the fact that it costs money to buy (not withstanding the excellent free Voice HAT this month), it is reasonable to e...

Re: Issue #57 Hack a Dash Button

I got that far, and fixed the code like you did. When I run it I get a runtime error. The function that is defined in trigger.py is "arp_detect()" but the following line calls "arp_display()", which is not defined. print sniff(prn=arp_display, filter="arp", store=0) When I fix that, I get another ru...

Issue #57 Hack a Dash Button

Has anybody got this project to work? The code for trigger.py doesn't even pass a syntax check (missing colon, missing indents ....). Once those are corrected, I get various runtime errors.

Yes. I followed the instructions in MagPi, supplemented with the Google ones.

Re: Issue 57 SD card code

You can use Etcher per the instructions in MapPi. Not sure what size the SD card needs to be (4Gb is probably enough but 8Gb or more is recommended) but it will resize the image to use all available space on the SD card (I used 8Gb). Assuming it is at least 4Gb you can use the card you already have.

Yes, I get that warning too although everything seems to work (as far it is supposed to anyway).

Shopping lists

Don't try this unless you have an actual Google Home device... You can add items to shopping list and it will tell you what is on the list but you can't delete the items (rather like the Echo). To delete items from the shopping list you need to add a Google Home device to the Google Home app; otherw...
