legend! I will buy you a coffee or 3 :smile:


This works really nicely. Thanks a lot. I would have the following ideas for future improvements:

  • Include a possibility (menu item) to “check config” from the IDE
  • Include a possibility (menu item) to “restart server” from the IDE

This would mean you could do all the changes from the IDE without the need to change UIs.


That is actually already in!

I’ve tested the feature in my live broadcast yesterday. Please see my last broadcast on YouTube for a demonstration (1:40:00)


I’m having an issue with 0.3. The interface looks good, but for some reason when I open a file the entire file is rendered on one row of overlapping text. Not sure if there is a setting I need to adjust or something? Stop/Start the add-on didn’t resolve (I’ll try a reboot of my Pi).

Any other suggestions?


Flush your browser cache?


Awesome, thanks.


I really like the look of this but in light of recent events I have a naïve question.

Does this add-on inherently have more, less or the same security as using the Samba add-on?

I don’t mean in the way @frenck has written it, I am in no way questioning anyone’s skills, knowledge or the implementation of the add-on, I simply mean are there any inherent differences security wise with the methodology employed?

Yes, I am getting a little paranoid…


There are no such things as more or less the same security. Any system or program can be compromised when a vulnerability has been found. So yeah… there is no answer to that question.

Use SSL and use the password protection offered by this add-on, if you decide to make it available outside of your network (which you generally should avoid as much as possible for anything! so that is not perse related to this addon). The password protection offered by this add-on is provided by NGinx, which is a well-known web server that handles it. Since this project is so major, the chances for having it issues is far less. Nevertheless, new issues could be found.

As for my add-ons, they are all monitored actively by my friends at They know exactly what software is used in the add-on containers and monitor security feeds. As soon as a vulnerability is discovered, they will notify me immediately.


@frenck Thankyou for such a well put reply to what I suppose could have been taken as a provocative question (which it certainly wasn’t meant to be).


When I hit the install button in the app store, the button turns red then fades back to normal, and it doesn’t appear to install. How do I troubleshoot this?


Check the Supervisor logs ( panel -> System tab -> Refresh the logs).
It should show a message why…

I tried installing this for the first time yesterday and again this morning. I am receiving the following error;

18-07-16 15:43:25 INFO (SyncWorker_1) [hassio.docker.interface] Pull image hassioaddons/ide-armhf tag 0.4.0.
18-07-16 15:47:48 ERROR (SyncWorker_1) [hassio.docker.interface] Can’t install hassioaddons/ide-armhf:0.4.0 -> 404 Client Error: Not Found (“no such image: hassioaddons/ide-armhf:0.4.0: No such image: hassioaddons/ide-armhf:0.4.0”).

This is on pi3. Thank you.


I was able to get this installed by restoring a full snapshot on a new hassio 1.7 image. Funny thing is after restoring the snapshot it said 0.73.2 was available and when I tried upgrading the logs showed the same 404 no such image for the update. I then tried and installed the IDE add-on. After that I could upgrade to 0.73.2. Weird.

Doing a hassio ne info also still shows the 404 not found error. I guess this is a known bug and off topic here.


404 by Docker can be either one of these two things:

  1. The Docker image with the specified tag does not exists (d0h).
  2. You don’t have enough diskspace (yeah really… it is documented by Docker as well…)

So since the image exists, check here:

I guess you’ll have an issue at point 2.


@frenck I’ve managed to get the DuckDNS add-on working so I can access working, but how can I get working with the IDE editor?

  "username": "uname",

  "ssl": true,

Is there any possibility to run this addon, when my on Rpi3 is running on different port than 8321? If yes, what should I change to make it work?


You can set a custom port for this add-on in it’'s configuration.
