Complete Guide to install Siri Proxy Server on Linux

It’s two weeks since I am using Apple voice assistant – Siri on my iPad 1. For couple of days it was pretty amasing and interesting to spent time trying diffirent Siri features in action. But now I could say Siri is limited to its funcitons and for ifans like me it is time to try just developed Siri Proxy Server. Siri Server helps you to manage and create some custom Siri plugins using your own commands.

  • Short guide to install Siri Proxy Server on Ubuntu 11.10:
  • Install Ubuntu 11.10 to your computer
  • Install and setup DNS server (using dnsmasq or any other custom dns scripts)
  • Download and install all dependencies files, like Ruby and Gems
  • Setup Siri Server and generate private ssh certificate for your iDevice

After the auto install script will generate all dependencies and start siri proxy server you have to open Siri on your iphone and test that the server is running by saying “Test Siri Proxy” to Siri. If all goes well you should see some strings appearing in your terminal window. Please read the full instruction about Siri Proxy Plugins install guide.

Siri proxy is a proxy server for Apple’s Siri “assistant.” The idea is to allow for the creation of custom handlers for different actions. This can allow developers to easily add functionality to Siri.

The main example I provide is a plugin to control my thermostat with Siri. It responds to commands such as, “What’s the status of the thermostat?”, or “Set the thermostat to 68 degrees”, or even “What’s the inside temperature?”
