Twine and XBMC Media Center
  • I decided to see if I could get TWINE to send me a notification through XBMC when the door on my beer fridge opens. If I'm watching a movie I will get a pop-up notification stating that someone is in the fridge. This was done mostly for fun and to see if I could send commands to XBMC from the twine.

    This is just one of the examples of what commands you could send to XBMC.

    The code I used is below. You will need to have your XBMC system setup to be reachable from the Internet. I used GET to send the commands.

    http://username:password@IP address:Port/jsonrpc?request={"id":1,"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"GUI.ShowNotification","params":{"title":"Motion%20Detected","message":"Beer%20Fridge"}}

    You'll want to edit the below with your system specific settings and what you want the message to say.
    username
    password
    IP address
    Port
    Motion%20Detected
    Beer%20Fridge
