General :: (SL4A) Importing PHP Or Python Script From Github To Execute From Command Line

Jun 1, 2013

What I am trying to do is get either nest-api in PHP or pynest in python to run out of SL4A in order to control my Nest thermostat ultimately out of Tasker. Both are found on github, but I can't link to them as I apparently need ten posts to do so. So a google search for "nest-api github" and "pynest github" will have to do I suppose.

I have absolutely no issues getting either to run out of Terminal on my MacBook Air, but for whatever reading the SL4A shell seems to escape my understanding. I would rather have the PHP script work, as it has more options for things I can set, which I like. Where to put the nest.class.php on my phone in order for the PHP shell to reference it when running the example.php or any script I write myself. When I put both files in the sdcard/sl4a/scripts folder and try to run either from within either sl4a or sl4a's shell I get a call to undefined function error.

For the python script, I'm not sure how I need to import the module so that I can call it with nest.py at the beginning of my command line prompt and follow it up with the user name and password and so on. I've done everything including trying to create an .egg file, which I've since been told is not necessary, and that I simply have to put it in the /sl4a/scripts folder. That doesn't make sense to me though, as I needed to run the setup.py command on my computer in order to start using it, and the .egg file should be the equivalent of that on the phone, no?

So what I am looking for is the foolproof way to get either a php or python script running through the shell that isn't actually hooking into the Android environment at all, which is what all the writeups I have found in my searching seems to pertain to. Then eventually make sure that they are available in a way that Tasker can call them. I should also note that all this has been done in an emulator through eclipse until this point, as I didn't want to go screwing around with my brand new Nexus 4's file structure until I had the best practice perfected.

Android :: Possible To Run ADB Shell Command From Inside An App

I am using Runtime class to execute it : Runtime.getRuntime().exec("echo 125 > /sys/devices/platform/flashlight.0/leds/flashlight/brightness");

However I get a permissions error since I am not supposed to access the sys directory. I have also tried to place the command in a String[] just in case spaces caused a problem but it didn't make much differense.

General :: Installing App From CWM Via Shell Command

Nov 8, 2012

The latest version of Google Now (2.1) doesn't like being flashed. If you flash it via CWM it seems to break voice search functionality, causing a force close.

Playing with the adb shell, I discovered that the pm install command works nicely:

Code:
pm install [APKNAME].apk

So, I thought this would be perfect to execute in a shell script via CWM/Edify.

So far I've tried all manner of commands. First I was trying the above command in a install.sh file, before I realised that "pm" wasn't present anywhere in /sbin/ (the header of my shell script is #!/sbin/sh").

So, I've tried this:

Code:
#!/sbin/sh
exec /system/bin/pm install data/media/install/Velvet.apk

Here is the update script:

Code:
ui_print("Mounting system...");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/system");
ui_print("Mounting data...");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/data");
[Code] .....

Which, copies the files correctly. This also isn't my first time running scripts in my installer, but this is the first time I've attempted this. To no avail. This same command works in the adb shell, though.

Also, is there another way of flashing that may work? I heard about putting the original file ("Velvet.apk") in /system/app and then putting the updated version in /data/appcom.google.andorid.googlequicksearch-1.apk but this doesn't work either.

Running the above script in Busybox installer's script running function also works perfectly. The only thing it won't do is install from CWM.

General :: ADB Shell / Is Command - List Of Files Not Sorted By Name

Jun 8, 2012

When I start the ADB shell from the Windows command line, and type the command "ls", the list of files I get is not sorted by name. Also, if I enter "ls -r" which should reverse sort, I get the error message "no such file". If I type "busybox ls -l", I get the expected sorted list. Also, other commands like "busybox ls -la" work.

My Phone is a Samsung Captivate i897, rooted from Gingerbread with Corn Kernel v7.06 with Superuser and BusyBox installed.

How can I get the Busybox version of the shell commands to run without having to type "busybox" all the time?

General :: How To Send Email From Command Line Shell

Nov 14, 2012

I am looking for a way to send an email, preferably with an attachment, from a command line shell script (bourn/ash/whatever-it-is). No user interaction is a requirement.

It looks like an "am start" command might be able to do it via launching another app, and I've seen some examples out there, but nothing that I've had success with.

I have a big rsync backup script that I run to back up my device to my server, but I want to be able to email myself a notification if the backup fails, along with a copy of a log file. This script runs on a regular basis via a scheduler without any user interaction, but I have noticed that rsync has been failing recently and I've needed to re-run it manually later.

I am a pro Linux sysadmin but don't know jack about Java. I do bash, python, perl, and some C. My current script is just a sh shell script.

FYI my device is a Nexus One on Cyanogen 7.2. FYI I own the mail server here. I use k9mail as my primary mail app but the gmail app could be used as well.

If there was just a "mail" command.

Android :: Getting Result Of Executed Shell Command Fails / Hangs

Sep 15, 2010

I try to execute shell commands, this does work as it should. Even the result comes back (as is see on LogCat). The problem ist the last line of the result. Every time a readLine() on the last line occurs (which shouldn't occur, temp should be null), the app hangs forever and doesn't come back from the readLine call. Maybe you find the error. I tried readUTF and standart read(), all the same problem. And yes, the app got su-rights.

try {
Process process = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("su");
DataOutputStream os = new DataOutputStream(process.getOutputStream());
DataInputStream osRes = new DataInputStream(process.getInputStream());
for (String single : commands) { os.writeBytes(single + " ");
os.flush(); String temp = new String();
while( (temp = osRes.readLine()) != null) { Log.v("NITRO", temp);
result2 += temp + " ";
} } os.writeBytes("exit");
os.flush(); process.waitFor();
} catch (IOException e) { Toast.makeText(Main.this, "Error", Toast.LENGTH_LONG);
} catch (InterruptedException e){ Toast.makeText(Main.this, "Error", Toast.LENGTH_LONG);
}

That is the StackTrace where it hangs when I stop debugger when hanging:

General :: Android Shell Command To Check If Process Is Cached

Sep 9, 2012

I am wondering what terminal command I can use to check if a process has been cached. On my Sprint Galaxy Nexus, rooted, with the latest build of the Paranoid Android jelly bean rom, I can go to my settings, click on apps, swipe to the "Running Apps" list, and click on the button at the top of the screen that says "Show Cached Processes," and that displays the list that I am trying to access. My reasoning for doing this, is to use "Secure Settings" in conjunction with "Tasker" to check if my "Groove IP" application is running. Initially, I was trying to use "pgrep -l com.*" and check that list for "com.gvoip" too see if "Groove IP" is running in the tray (pull down menu), but if the process is cached, it still shows up in that list. How to get a list of cached processes from terminal.

Android :: Execute Code Before Exiting Application?

Nov 18, 2009

I would like to know how to execute code before exiting application. My application is composed of several activities. When the user starts the application (from the launcher menu or from a notification in the status bar), he goes in an InitActivity where I process some initializations. From user experience, application always restarts. One of these initializations is to init a network manager and start a thread that periodically sends a network request to notify a server that application is active.

I need to process some end operations, like stopping this thread when user quits application, for example by pressing the HOME key or BACK key when he's in the root activity. However, when the user press the HOME key, application is still running in background.

Q1 : is it possible to execute code when exiting application (I see the onTerminate() method of the class Application but it seems not to be always called)?

Q2 : Is it possible to force application exit (activity method finish () only destroy the current activity, not the application)?

Q3 : Is it possible to handle HOME key press (onKeyDown() is not called when this button is pushed)?
