Bitfocus companion add-on

Hi all,

I am probably capable of mashing together the files to make the bitfocus companion docker image into an add-on, but I am unable to maintain it long term, I am sure there is a way of automating it? Is someone better at this than me able to make bitfocus companion into a ha os add-on? :slight_smile:

It allows for control of a number of things, namely professional AV things that I wish for control of.

And also allows using stream decks as physical input devices.

Thanks

I think that is great idea, I personally have PI4 just for the Bitfocus companion only, and then have Yellow for HA, I can help with $ contribution, unfortunately cant with technical side.

I tried to make the Bitfocus Companion Docker image into a HA Addon but never quite figured it out. It would be excellent to have.

The Stream Deck HA plugin might be a good place to reference: basnijholt/home-assistant-streamdeck-yaml-addon: Home Assistant Stream Deck YAML Add-on :video_game: (github.com)
It auto-detects a Streamdeck if it’s plugged into the same machine that HA is running on. Although even without a Streamdeck there’d still be heaps of uses for Companion.

You could automate it updating with Github Actions, although I know very little about it.
The only two config options we’d likely need is the config path and Web port.

Thanks for the info! There’s probably enough now that we can beg @squishykid to look into it for us :innocent:

Preferably, i’d also have the remote option. My HA server is in my pantry, but i want my controller in my office, all the way down the hallway.
