Showing Firebase Data on Recycler View

Developing Android Apps - Thu, 03/15/2018 - 22:07

Okay I'm actually just getting into Android Development again and went with Kotlin because I wanted something new.

I am trying to read data from Firebase and display it on recycler view.

I was following the Firebase guide but it was a little wonky. Any ideas?

[question] how to get Tasker to read and react to content inside a notification

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Thu, 03/15/2018 - 18:30

Buckle up this might be a touch long TDLR at bottom

Ok so back story, I'm a firefighter, we use an app called active911 to alert us to calls. Pretty sweet app really for what it does. Alerts display call type, gives you a Google maps address and the option to GPS yourself to the call, unit(s) requested and other fine details.
Also, father to kids and stay at home with them during the day. Sometimes calls go off that impact me getting home in a timely manner and due to the nature of my job I'm not able to text my wife that there is a late call so she can get the kids to daycare or not.

So I created a profile using auto notification and Tasker that basically reads the active911 notification that goes into my pull down notification menu, reads the call type displayed and takes the appropriate action based on that. (I also have it play a specific tone on my phone after the initial alert that indecates what call type it is. We used to have this kinda thing over the radio and I'm a fan of the old ways. Now we just have a stupid robot lady dispatching us. Annoying.)

Looks like this. has like 74 steps total to include all the call types and end if.

Auto notification looks like this.

Works sweet. The question is this: is there an app or a way to intercept which station is getting dispatched based on the information inside the notification? So she doesn't get a text every time a station in the department gets a call but just the station I'm currently working out of?

TDLR: wrote a profile that texts my wife when I get a notification from active 911 and makes my phone sound awesome. Want to find a way to read station numbers from inside the app to keep from texting her every time every station gets a call and just text her when mine gets a call. Need ideas.¯\_(ツ)_/¯

TIA guys!

Oh forgot to mention the alerts in the notification bar from active911 say department name and call type. Nothing else

Hello, i recently purchased an android screen for in my car, where i run tasker on. The device boots up in under 20sec, but my tasker runs the task only after 2 minutes or so(little bit exagerrated).
Is there a way i canmake tasker check/run its tasks when the device is booted up?
Thanks in advance
