About to give up on HASS

I dont get much time to tinker with this like I used to but every other week it seems like something is breaking and I’m spending too much time fixing/rebuilding etc.
Last few days HACS has been acting up, tried following some posts to remove and reinstall. 5 hours later, its still broke and I’m frustrated out my mind. Fell asleep and don’t even remember what I did. FInally got rid of it, but now it’s nowhere to be found to reinstall.

HACS is a custom component, not really part of HA. Most of the custom components found in HACS you can install without HACS, so it is not really necessary.
