A Slack Status Indicator / Do Not Disturb light made with the Adafruit Trinket M0 #Adafruit #CircuitPython #Trinket

Cody Buell on Twitter shares a helpful “Do Not Disturb” indicator for those long coding sessions. It is tied to one’s Slack status.

A hardware and software project for those who work in an open office and need a better way than headphones to indicate availability. The light ties to Slack statuses to tell others how wary they should be to approach you. There will be some soldering involved, and although this can be done on any OS we’ll assume OSX here.

There are ten different indications:

Light Color Light Behavior Slack Status Text Slack Status Emoji Other
blue solid server has not connected to trinket
red solid ‘focused’, ‘busy’
red solid , , :woman-gesturing-no:, :man-gesturing-no:, :male-technologist:, :female-technologist:
red pulsing ‘in a meeting’, ‘on a call’
red pulsing
green solid default default If there is no status or one we don’t trigger on the light will default green.
green pulsing
yellow solid ‘thinking’
yellow solid :thinking_face:, , :shushing_face:
yellow pulsing

The project is coded in CircuitPython 4.
