API Hooks

Just downloaded your application and I'm really impressed.  It works really well.  I'm currently working on some continuous deployment stuff for the company I work at and specifically running scripts on a local machine as a result of a particular build succeeding, failing etc.

It would be really awesome to be able to leverage all of the polling and notification stuff that you guys are already doing and be able to react to certain events (i.e. run a script when Project A succeeds -> passing in build context perhaps to the script).

I want this feature too. Any changes here?

I created an third party API for .Net and Windows(!). Have not used it in a while. You You can give it a try - feedback is welcome:

That's a great idea, and we plan to add command-line event handlers in v2. 

Wow that was quick.  Awesome.  Keep up the great work!

I posted a similar question here http://catlight.helprace.com/i186-tell-usb-status-light-the-status-of-catlight-possible-is-there-an-api
v2 is released. Did you pull it off? Any documentation on the hooks/api?

We made some progress towards this feature, but it is not implemented yet

Hey hanniball, was waiting for this too and now ended up creating a very simple .Net API for Windows myself.

Feel free to contribute some feedback or feature requests on github. I kept it very simple because I think for everything else than the overall status one should use the catlight app.
