I was excited to integrate Beeminder with Habitica, but because of the limitations of the way the current integration works, I need your help finding a workaround (with IFTTT)
As you might know, Habitica differentiates between
- Habits (eg. a 30min workout that you can check off any time. Can be positive or negative habits, depending on whether you click + or -)
- Dailies (reduces health automatically if not completed)
- To Dos (just a To Do list)
Beeminder only reads To Dos. Someone can set a minimum of To Dos, that need to be completed in a selected timeframe. This might be cool, if you manage your To Dos in Habitica.
I and many people do not even use the To Do section. I only use 1) Habits and 2) Dailies. To keep myself accountable to habits, whether they have to be completed daily or not.
That being said, I would be happy, if you help me find a solution, so that I can add goals in Beeminder, that track 1) habits. (e.g. workout habit performed at least 3x / week)
I know that the Habitica API can read, when a habit has been clicked (+/-), because a tool, called “Habitica Data Display Tool” can read that out, along with lots of other user data.
I just don’t know how and I would like to feed that information into Beeminder, using IFTTT. I have some programming skills, but if you have an idea of how I could go about this, it would be much appreciated.
