Apple's shortcuts are good when they work

I’ve been using Apple’s shortcuts more lately.

Some things I’ve tried:

Kill processes

I have a YubiKey I use to sign my commits. However, the app sometimes needs to be restarted. I made a shortcut to kill the process and restart it. This works every time.

Control my lights

This requires some wireless remote control, and somewhere along the line between the wireless connection between my phone, my router, and the hub, it stops working.

Give me eye breaks

I’ve been trying this lately to automate the 20-20-20 system. Every 20 minutes, I’ll take a 20 second break and look about 20 feet away.

Which ones work reliably?

About half of them.
