Hey, having some trouble getting past the HA/Appdaemon learning curve - Originally I had a system set up on home assistant only using MQTT to talk with an Arduino. I have decided to rebuild and like the idea of utilizing Appdaemon so I can code in python/communicate with easier with my devices.
I’m currently following the tutes from the Appdaemon site:
In addition, I’ve seen some youtube videos of people showing their systems which is great but glosses over how they did the dashboard connection.
Now, this makes sense to a point, I understand how my .py passes through to the apps.yaml. The part I’m at a loss for is, how I can pass this info back and forth between the HA GUI i.e turn on a switch or have a indication lamp.
I’ve looked through the forums and can’t find anything that discusses how the dashboard is linked/built do I need to create the entities in the configuration.yaml file and then pass that backwards? again any links/tutes you have would be great.
Edit** I should clarify I am looking to use the Home Assistant Dashboard not the Appdaemon
