Github Integration for UK users

Have any fellow UK users managed to get Github Integration working with their IDE?

I have been watching one of @pstuart’s older Live Code Friday videos on YouTube, showing how to do this, but I realised the “Enable Github Integration” button/link doesn’t seem to be enabled for the EU servers.

After a chat with US support, apparently it is tied up with the OAUTH issues, so I wonder if this could get fixed soon, or whether anyone else has found a workaround.

@April Is this somewhere on the list of items to be fixed as part of the OAUTH work?

absofreakenlutely. :slight_smile:

OAUTH is one of the biggest priorities on getting that fixed for the UK. IFFFT is just the start.


Hi @April, any news on the UK Github Integration ?

Hi @April, any news on the UK Github Integration ?

Custom smartapps generally exist at the account level (@slagle can keep me honest). If you use and connect with github, the smartapps should still appear on your EU account. If not, let me know and i can go back to sitting in the corner facing the wall.

Looks like you need to go sit in the corner facing the wall :smile:
The smartapp appears in the site ok but not in the EU version.

So does Github integration work for UK users ?

nope - we didn’t get the option to set up the integration yet

Why is it that the UK are left behind? Can someone from Samsung explain the reasons? And maybe add some timescales.

I guess it’s because HA is nothing over here like it is in the US. Most people over here dont know what HA is.

This is reflected by the fact that Smartthings is only retailed by Currys over here.

This isn’t a good thing. Your average Currys customer won’t have a clue about ST, and I’m sure the staff aren’t going to be able to tell you much!

It doesn’t bode well for the future of ST in the UK, I can’t see much demand coming from ‘general’ Currys customers, so demand to support and develop the UK experience won’t be that strong.

Hi - I wanted to install Rule machine on my UK ST Hub using the info from here: Complete Instructions to install Rule Machine & GitHub into IDE [DEPRECATED]

Given this thread and just to be sure, does this mean I won’t be able to integrate ‘Rule machine’ for UK ST? Thanks.

You can still use Rule Machine - it just means that (without the ability to integrate Github on UK accounts) you will have to update Rule Machine manually in the IDE when the developer releases an update. (Well, that’s my understanding anyway!)

Thank you @Pbrain. I re-read some other posts and found one mentioning pasting code. Somethings there finally ade sense for me. Have just attempted that and will play with it. Thanks again.

This is just unacceptable now. I want to start adding from GitHub but the only way is to go and grab the source code, copy it then log in on the uk server and add it manually with no updates.

Additionally we can’t use IFTTT which is one of the main things I want to do at the moment. This I the building blocks of the smart home and we are totally left out in th cold. Sure I can get round a lot of things but I want the bells and whistles smart home I was sold!

@jimrobo pasting the code does work very well, whilst the Github integration just makes things a little easier. If you set up a Github account then you can fork or follow the repositories that contain the code you are pasting from, and from there you can at least monitor whether there are any changes to the repositories you are interested in…this is perhaps the next best thing to Github integration.

Also, I have IFTTT working well here in UK - have you tried it recently. I just ran a test creating a recipe with a IFTTT DO button and it turned on a SmartThings switch instantly. If you have tried it, and need some help from the forum, then to keep the discussions on topic perhaps you could post on this forum…

…and myself or others might be able to help

IFTTT works fine as far as I can tell.

The GitHub integration not working is a real pain, especially for things like Rule Machine which is updated every 5 minutes :wink:

…Also for ongoing projects like getting the Fibaro 3.2 motion sensor working in the UK, which ST have not done yet.

Please give us integration :persevere:

I can confirm what John says - IFTTT works just fine.

But the lack of GitHub integration is becoming a massive bugbear! Not just for Rule Machine (although that would be nice), but for all kinds of other things too.

PLEASE can this get sorted soon?


Apologies it appears I jumped the gun a little with IFTTT!

I haven’t fully implemented it. I am having a bit of a nightmare with my LifX bulbs! The IFTTT was next on my list. As it happens I am going to completely switch to hue by the looks of it.

You could also look at Osram lightify, especially if they ever come on promotion again like the recent Amazon deal for £15
