    Activate Command cydia tweak allows you to run shell commands using activator actions.

    This tweak was created to use Activator events like double tapping the sleep button to perform home automation tasks such as turning on and off lights or starting a coffee machine that has a web interface using a command like: curl -s -S “”.
