So I’m new here, first post, hello!
I apologize if this is covered in other places, but this board is littered with info around Docker usage for various reasons. I’m a seasoned and advanced docker user. I’m trying to fully identify some ways to possibly transplant some functionality from HASS-io containers vs the default HASS docker container.
High level view - I’m a current OpenHAB user, running OpenHABian on a Pine64. It works fine, but there are some issues with HomeKit functionality lately and I’ve seen some cool stuff in HA that OH doesn’t have. So I’m looking to test out HA in docker containers to start (yes I’ll handle the ZWave stick passthru stuff, did once upon a time with OH too). Once I can fully validate and complete my evaluation and ensure it meets all the needs, I’ll work on building this out on a SD card for my Pine64 to just pull and swap out.
To complete my testing though, I really would like to get the HASS-io containers spun up for some features. Specifically HomeBridge is one that I’m really hoping to use. Specifically because I have about 60 or so ZWave devices, that are a pain to have to go through configuring in HomeBridge standalone. I’d rather use the HASS-io docker add-on for HomeBridge.
So my question really comes down to this - is there a way that I can use the HASS-io addons with a straight HASS docker install? I understand from testing that a HASS-io install basically just stands up an extra container to handle the orchestration. I don’t care if there are difficult connections needed for the containers to talk and be linked, I just need to know how that happens and I can easily perform this piece. Any input is greatly appreciated.
Any other gotchas about the HASS-io based install? I saw documentation from another user about install HASS-io on Pine64, so I’m hoping it should be a fairly easy process based on his documentation of the effort. I just need to get this testing performed.
(sorry for the hass-io, apparently new members can’t include more than 2 links, and hass.io shows as a link!)
