Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Content Match with Script

Hi, I am trying to create an http monitor with a content match. I created a script Service but I can't seem to figure out how to relate a Failure to a Variable.

The script is a simple curl with a if else clause. If > 0 Success, else Failure. Does anyone have an example of a working content match?

Sorry, I was making it too hard. Working now. :)

Re: Content Match with Script

The easiest way to do content match on a web page is to use the Web (HTTP) service with the Smart Change Detection feature.

Version 2.6 will add more advanced content analysis filtering. It'll be released in a month or two.
