Replying to this thread for anyone who wants a HOW TO.
As @Kris mentions, this can be accomplished with an HTTP GET/POST. Props to whomever posted a similar description in a Reddit article I stumbled upon, but not looking for now.
PART 1: CONFIGURE STRINGIFY
- Add the Connect: Maker thing to your list of available things.
- Create a flow with the Connect: Maker thing as a
trigger. For this example, let's call the flow, "Lights out - Maker."
- When configuring the thing, you will tap on "Send Stringify an HTTP GET/POST." The next page will briefly display "Retrieving data..." and then display a long URL beginning with "https:///webhooks.stringify.com/..." Note that the description says, "Send an HTTP
POST to this URL:" We will
GET this post in the next part.
- Copy the link ("long tap" and select "Copy"). Or, if you just tap the link, a page will open in Safari. Tap on the URL there and copy the entire link.
- Complete your flow by connecting your desired actions and conditional triggers. This is it for configuring Stringify.
PART 2: CONFIGURE SHORTCUTS
- On your Apple device, select the Shortcuts app.
- Tap "Create Shortcut."
- Add a "Text" action. You can scroll through the list to find it or search for it.
- Paste the URL copied in Part 1 into the area provided.
- Next, add a "Get Contents of URL" action. You'll find it under the "Web" section of actions.
- Click on "Advanced" and make sure the action is configured for "GET." Do not edit "Headers."
- Tap the options button.
- Add a name for your shortcut. For this example, name the shortcut "Lights Out."
- Tap "Add to Siri." For this example, record the phrase, "Lights Out." Tap "Done" when finished.
- Now say, "Hey Siri, Lights Out!" Siri will respond, "Running your shortcut. That's done!"
- Bask in your genius.
