• I am running a custom Espruino and am trying to have it display incoming texts. I have a GB() function for it, and when I run the GadgetBridge debug utilities, they seem to work just fine, but when I receive a text, my GB() function is not called. Am I missing a setting? I set all the permissions it asked for when I installed GB. Any help appreciated...

  • It may well be that when you receive a message, your code throws some kind of error. I'm pretty sure that Gadgetbridge always sends GB(...) - I don't think there's any check used for whether it should enable/disable sending it.

    You can enable logging in Gadgetbridge and then write the log to a file - and that will allow you to see what data is sent to/from the Bangle (particularly if there are any error messages sent back).

    You can see what GB(...) function is called (and ensure that it is called), then you can connect directly with the Web IDE and paste in that same command and test.

    You can also run Gadgetbridge, go to the app loader inside it, then More... and select the remote connection option. You can then connect via your phone with the Web IDE on your desktop at the same time as Gadgetbridge.

  • Thank you for the debugging reminder. It let me know that my phone screen was ON, and it doesn't forward messages if it's on. Everything is working as expected now, thank you!
