ESP S3-Box-3 Screen

I have voice assistant successfully running on my new box-3. I am wondering if there is a better way to use the screen. In the ideal, I’d love to be able to add 4 buttons (actions) that trigger scripts on my HA instance. But even a clock when it’s not actively listening would be more interesting than the at-rest icon. Any ideas how to make this happen?

It is programmed in esphome.io

Thanks – unf my programming skills are non existent.

I’ve tried to borrow some YAML code from here: ESP Home and ESP32 S3 Box? - #22 by jaswalters

These are the changes I made to the local version of the package.

font:
  - file:
      type: gfonts
      family: Figtree
      weight: 300
      italic: true
    glyphs: ${allowed_characters}
    id: font_request
    size: 15
  - file:
...
  - file: "gfonts://Roboto"
    id: font_time
    size: 60
    glyphs: "0123456789:"
  - file: "gfonts://Roboto"
    id: font_date
    size: 30

time:
  - platform: homeassistant
    id: time_ha
    timezone: America/New_York

display:
...
    pages:
      - id: idle_page
        lambda: |-
          it.fill(Color(255, 255, 255));
          it.strftime(160, 85, id(font_time), Color::BLACK, TextAlign::CENTER, "%H:%M:%S", id(time_ha).now());
          it.strftime(160, 170, id(font_date), Color::BLACK, TextAlign::CENTER, "%d.%m.%Y", id(time_ha).now());

but when it compiles, I get this error:

Any help or insight appreciated…

@bcukier, I ran into the same error after adding “time:” to my code. Running a “Clean Build Files” function, a couple of times, cleared up the issue.

I’m interested to do something similar. I have an ESPHome device with an OLED Screen that displays sensor data, I’d like to get the code from this device integrated with the Box 3 Voice Assistant so I can see sensor data on the Box 3 while it is in ‘wait’ mode. I am a real newbie to git hub but I have managed to fork the package into my own github. For now, I have made no changes to the code but when I try to install the package from my Github (github://ritehaus/firmware/wake-word-voice-assistant/esp32-s3-box-3.yaml@main) it fails. As soon as I revert to installing the package from the esphome github (github://esphome/firmware/wake-word-voice-assistant/esp32-s3-box-3.yaml@main) it installs fine,
This is the output I get when I try to install from my github:

None of this means anything to me! Does it make sense to you? Any help or ideas are welcome.
