It has been about 2 years since I have been running the “on-air” light at my house. This is a life saver when working from home. It might have helped this guy on the BBC interview out: The idea is whenever my status in Jabber matches one of the keywords I defined, the light is turned on. Instead of the girls bursting into my office during a call, I can hear them whispering, “shhhh dad is on a call”.
I originally wrote this in python. Since I have be doing all my work in node.js I thought it was time to convert and document the code for others to use. Here is a link to the github repo: https://github.com/bdm1981/onair.
As soon as the Cisco Spark API is ready, I will be updating to support Spark!
