About this app

A Tasker plugin to get the Jewish/Hebrew Date and Zmanim. Add as an action in a Tasker task or profile. Choose a location. The action will create Tasker variables for the current Jewish Date.

- Creates Tasker variables for the current Jewish Date
- Hebrew or English text
- Long date description that includes the Parsha of the week, Candle Lighting times and special days (Rosh Chodesh, Channukah etc.)
- Zmanim available as variables

Some examples of things you can do:
- Display the Jewish Date on your lock screen or launcher using DashClock (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.nurik.roman.dashclock) with DashClock Tasker Extension (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.schluderer.apps.t2d).
- Make a custom Jewish Date widget with Zoom (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.zoom) or Zooper Widget (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.zooper.zwfree&hl=en)
- Get Jewish Date notifications
- Turn your phone on Shabbos mode (Silent, airplane mode, start a clock app etc.) at candle lighting time
- Make a custom Mincha reminder before sunset complete with a button to launch Mincha on your Siddur app
- Use a combination of IFTTT (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ifttt.ifttt) and a WeMo outlet (or any other WiFi outlet) to turn your phone into a Shabbos clock that can control your house lights.

Automate Tasker actions based on Zmanim:
- Create a new profile that runs at a set time
- Use the plugin to find the zman you want to automate at
- Store in a global variable (e.g. %candleLightingTime)
- Make a new Tasker profile with the time context and set the time to the variable you created
- Add any action you want for the profile
(Tasker needs to be in advanced mode for this)

Tasker is required: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.taskerm

Note: This app does not have its own interface. You can find it in the Plugin section of Tasker when you make a new action.

Great job man. Great useful app. I've been trying to set variations like these since I've been meddling around with tasker. This does it perfectly. I use the variations to check if it's Shabbos or yom tov. And put my phone in silent mode if it is. LOVE IT!

What's new

Fix support for Israel
New variables:
- Is it Shabbos, Yom Tov etc.
- Daf Yomi
(New variables will appear when you add a new action or edit an existing one)

(If you get a force close after updating try deleting and re-adding the action to your task.)
