Simple External Actions

Here are some actions that can be sent to the script without a ping and pong process. All of these actions need to be sent some specific data in a specific format.

  • Sending a message to main script with the data it needs. gScriptname = "pandacrazy";
    • localStorage.setItem("JR_message_" + gScriptName, JSON.stringify(data));
  • The data should be in this format with command being the actual action command string from the list below.
    • {"time":(new Date().getTime()),"command":command,"data":objectData}
  • The objectData that it's looking for is different for each action so that will be explained in the action commands below.
  • The jobData that holds the hit info must be in this object data format but not all have to be assigned:
    • {"requesterName":"","requesterId":"","groupId":"","pay":"","title":"","duration":"0","hitsAvailable":0,"timeLeft":"","totalSeconds":0,"hitId":"","continueURL":"","returnURL":"","durationParsed":null,"jobNumber":"","friendlyRName":"","friendlyTitle":"","assignedOn":"","description":"","qual":"","keywords":""};

Here are the simple actions:

  • acceptedhit - Send info about a hit accepted outside of the script.
    • This needs the jobData object defined above to be sent like this: {"jobData":jobData}
  • returned - Send info about a hit that was returned.
    • This needs the data to have this object: {"hitId":thisHitID}
  • submitted - Send info about a hit that was submitted.
    • This needs the data to have this object: {"hitId":thisHitID}
  • queueData - Send updated queue info to the script. Only uses the number in queue at this time.
    • This needs the data to have this object: {"queueLength":length}
  • projectedEarnings - Send the projected earnings from the dashboard.
    • This needs the data to have this object: {"projectedEarnings":earnings}
  • addOnlyJob - Add info about a hit that needs to be added but don't collect.
    • This needs the jobData object defined above to be sent like this: {"jobData":jobData}
  • addOnceJob - Add info about a hit that needs to be added and collected now but only one time.
    • This needs the jobData object defined above to be sent like this: {"jobData":jobData}
  • addJob - Add info about a hit that needs to be added and collected now.
    • This needs the jobData object defined above to be sent like this: {"jobData":jobData}

 

  • So for example if I wanted to send the hitID of a hit that I accepted I would use this to send it to the main script:
    • localStorage.setItem("JR_message_" + gScriptName, JSON.stringify(
      {"time":(new Date().getTime()),"command":"acceptedhit","data":
      {"hitId":thisHitID} }));

The time data isn't actually used by the script so that could be left out but in the future I might need it so I just send it anyway. In the advanced messaging in the next topic it uses a unique ID that it gets from the date but it doesn't use it from the received message.
