The temp basal / IOB bug is fixed in Dev. Also, right now as we speak, Pete is incorporating the Temp Overrides into Dev. So, for us there was no reason NOT to go to Dev. Dev also has a slider for beeps or not (which we have on).
Cat is out of the bag…Remote Overrides just landed in dev branch. Pete has made this feature slick and quick. We (the Disimone house) have been testing it for a couple weeks now and I think all the bugs have been worked out from what I can tell. Love it!
And this feature merging was the final push that I was waiting for to kill off JoJo branches…so that’s announcement 2 for the day. JoJo is gone…except for the real pile of fur that it was named for, my dog. She’s still alive and here.
Dev has: remote overrides and overrides (in improved form over jojo branch’s version), IOB fix for podders, automatic uploading of your settings to NS profile, beeps option in POD settings area, updated watch bolus confirmation (and auto to 100% of recommended bolus), and many new improvements too. Like hiding your API secret in Loop settings now that you’ll be using that for remote overrides. And stale BG data (over 15 min old) will be a displayed as a dash to help you see when that’s the problem. I am excited to say that I think it’s time to update to dev, in my opinion. If you’ve been sitting on jojo waiting for remote-overrides, that’s done. If you’ve been sitting on omnipod-testing because you were worried about the effort or bugs, things are pretty good shape right now and you’ll get overrides (shout out to Michael Pangburn for that life changing work)!
Along with dev updates today…I’ve made some new Loop shortcuts to go along. These are the bomb. I was not a shortcut user before, but this effort has totally changed my view of them. If IFTTT was out of your technical reach, shortcuts is not. It’s a download and press play basically.
One shortcut is a comprehensive Loop companion (troubleshooting tips, links, quick texting, manual BG entry, youtube videos link, and remote overrides control), and the two others are pared down subsets of the first if you just want to save one button press. You’ll need to update to iOS 13 to use them. And I’m working on a short video to help explain them in more depth, but suffice to say they are SUPER useful. I’m a convert to the shortcut way of life now. And, awesome even if you don’t use remote-overrides as an adult looper.
So to take advantage of all this new stuff, you will need to:
Update computer/iphone…Xcode 11.1 and iOS 13
Update Loop to dev (there’s a page for that…https://loopkit.github.io/loopdocs/build/updating/)
To use remote override feature, you’ll also need to create an APN key and update NS (there’s a page for that too…https://loopkit.github.io/loopdocs/nightscout/remote-overrides/ )
Shortcuts links are on same page as the one just mentioned above.
Check out the Overrides page to learn more about them if you haven’t used them yet…(https://loopkit.github.io/loopdocs/operation/loop-settings/overrides/)
I am working on updating a few more parts of the Loopdocs (like the branches FAQs), but I need some coffee and I was not expecting this merge this morning so I’m a little slow.
ask away on this post, but fb may not even tell me it exists. Apparently I’m still not on any notifications list still. I’ll try to come back and answer any questions periodically today.
