Yet another Wi-Fi Workflow...in Perl

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I know, there is plenty of smart Wi-Fi toggle workflows out there so it's hard to believe we need another. Anyway, this is the one I made by myself, in Perl, adding some bells and whistles like current IPv4/v6 address, MAC address as well as the SSID of the current connection.

 

It looks like this:

If you like it you can download it from this page.

 

As usual, any comment is the very welcome  :)

 

Have a nice day

Gaetano

Hey Gaetano,

 

I like this workflow best for the additional information. Sometimes I need them at a glance and this is nice.

For when I just want to toggle WiFi, I added a hotkey and adjusted the script accordingly. Now it's perfect :)

 

Thanks, Ricco

Well, I don't know any Perl, thus I fiddled with the script until it was working with a hotkey. 

 

If you would include a hotkey in your workflow, any potential user could benefit from this option out of the box.

And since the actual hotkey will not travel with the workflow, everybody can set up their own or just leave it deactivated.

 

I bet your solution would be much cleaner than my attempt :)

Sure, it's a very good idea, I will give it a look very soon.

 

Enjoy

Hi all,

there is a new version of this workflow with the addition of a hotkey triggered scenario (thanks derico for the suggestion) and some code cleanup.

I also changed a bit the notification.

You can download it from the link above or down here in the signature

 

Have fun!

Gaetano, see if you can add the option to select the available wifi connections, after turning wifi on.

Thanks for the suggestion, I will give a look to it.
