Hi I'm Theo. I'm a developer, traveller, photo enthusiast, google-addict, macOS user from Switzerland.
Today I wrote this neat little automation to detect when my washing machine has finished and announce it via Google Home (Chromecast). All that is needed is a myStrom Wifi Switch and Home Assistant.
How to build a basic REST service using Google Cloud Functions. his is probably not your standard use case for Google Cloud Functions.. so whether this makes sense is up to you. But it's certainly possible.
I'm using Home Assistant as an integration layer between a smart switch controlling a lamp and Google Home. So that I can control the light with all the usual commands.
Credentials for artifactory, nexus or the like are usually stored in ~/.gradle/gradle.properties. But what if you don't want to store passwords in plaintext or you need to change them frequently? Instead wouldn't it be nicer to use a system keyring that manages the passwords and keeps them encrypted?
I used ngrok.io to access and test a locally hosted application over the internet on my iPhone.
