I have come to the difficult decision to stop work on Custom Header. In the next few days I will be archiving the project. I invite anyone to try and resurrect it or, better yet, take parts of CH and make separate projects to cover small groups of related features. Who knows, maybe I’ll work on some of those as well.
Custom Header has become a beast to try to support and update, it is an absolute mess of code. The next HA update will both break CH and CH will be the cause of major performance issues even if fixed (without a major rewrite). What started out as a simple project to make the header smaller ballooned into this feature bloated monstrosity you see today, mostly for my inability to say no to any feature request.
Since the start of Hacktoberfest I have been working on adding things to HA itself and found myself working on changes that would make things in Custom Header obsolete (some are already) and I’m really enjoying the process.
Thank you all for the support, conversation, and experience this project has given me. I couldn’t code when I started this project and now I’m working on finding jobs in the field. I’m sad to see it go, but trust me it’s for the best. Both for myself and for Home Assistant.
Edit: I’m not going anywhere and most of my other projects will still be around and maintained.
