Reading SMS from the terminal?
#1
It's annoying to have to find my phone just so I can get the code so I can login to a given site. I've got SSH enabled, is there a way for me to view texts or at least notifications from there?

I am pretty sure somebody posted the location of the text files that chatty displays (cannot find it right now). Something like a .var/chatty/... directory?

You should be able to find out which files the chatty process loads, e.g. using 'ps'.

Hope this helps

Looking at lsof it looks like the file I'm looking for is /home/mobian/.purple/chatty/db/chatty-history.db so I guess I need to figure out some way to read an sqlite db from the terminal

Edit: came up with this and threw it into my .zshrc, works great
Code:
alias txts="sqlite3 ~/.purple/chatty/db/chatty-history.db -box \"select datetime(messages.time, 'unixepoch') AS time, threads.alias AS contact, replace(messages.body, char(10), ' ¶ ') AS message from messages join threads on messages.thread_id=threads.id order by time desc;\" | less -S"

you already got key issue but "wayvnc" could be useful as well. "xtigervncviewer" could be viewer program.

The README for Chatty specifically says how you can use Chatty over SSH. I personally haven't tried it but please do and let me know how it goes!

That's pretty cool. It works aside from the fact I can't drag the window around unless I right click the handle and select 'move'

Nice, better than nothing! My work network blocks SSHing so I haven't tried using it yet. Glad to know it works though!
