Add Check Configuration To Menu

I know I cant be the first to ask… but I could find no mention with a search!

Can this be done?

When I’m toying around I typically have three views open on my machine (I have three monitors) Center is the IDE where Im futzing with code… the second is the primary UI and the third is generally a web search… it would be relly helpful If I could put check config button on the Main menu… I know I could just drop to the cmd line and run a check but command lines give me hives (windows developer here… you know the type…lol)!

There is already a check config service so you should be able to create a switch/button to call that service. The problem is that the results won’t be conveniently displayed as they are when using the regular check config button. The results using that service are only printed to the home-assistant.log and in the info page log listing.

Thanks… yeah… I was hoping to get the same functionality… just in a more convenient place… No bother… Its not a deal breaker…

You’re not the first person I’ve seen request this. I am working on something that will do exactly what you’re looking for, using AppDaemon. It should be released in the next couple days.

Version 0.1.0 of my Config Check app has been released! Details here: Apop's Home Assistant Setup and Other Resources

Been using this and just upgraded to appdaemon 4 addon. Getting this error for check_config:

When do you think there will be support for appdaemon 4/
I also added to the github issue that had been started already.


This is fixed in an update to Appdaemon4 to 0.1.1 just now.

BUT I can’t trigger it to refresh unless I reload scripts and then it runs.

Thanks for letting me know. I haven’t had a chance to migrate to AppDaemon 4 yet, but I’ll take a look at this as soon as I do. Should be in the next week or so.
