If you are new to SL4A and scripting, take a look at this wiki entry about using SL4A with Tasker.
This python script allows you to send an instant message to another gTalk user.
The script takes the following parameters:
|%IM_USER||Yes||Your gTalk user ID, including the @gmail.com part|
|%IM_PSWD||Yes||Your gTalk password|
|%IM_TO||Yes||The address to which to send the IM|
|%IM_TEXT||Yes||The IM text|
To run the script, create a Task (Misc / Run Script) to run sendIM.py, and include the parameters in a comma separated list in the "Pass Variables" section.
A1:Run Script [ Name:sendIM.py Terminal:Off Pass Variables: %IM_USER, %IM_PSWD, %IM_TO, %IM_TEXT ]
- The script stands on its own without reference to other data or applications. It does not depend on or try to use other IM clients or accounts you may already have set up on your phone. It doesn't know about those other accounts, nor does it care what they are.
- It depends on the user passing it parameters containing a valid user id and password for a gTalk account.
- It doesn't allow you to send messages from non-gTalk accounts in it's current incarnation.
I'll monitor this thread for questions.
