Ok, I didn’t realise that. So… it’s all just “Home Assistant”? (for now at least).
For example, is there any different to the Home Assistant that’s installed fully on a device (whether it be Raspi or fully fledged linux or windows box)? I realise there’s no difference between a full install in linux and a VM (since the second is just a virtualisation of a normal install).
What was once referred to HASS.IO is just plain and simple HA?
And since I’m thinking they are now one and the same, there is no difference, that would mean anything that can be normally done in HA, I can do in this dockerised version of it?
I am sure I read somewhere it shouldn’t be “Docker-ised”, is that (still) the case? I really couldn’t find it again when I looked for it again today. I think my main problem here is just not being able to fully conceptualise and understand the connections between containers.
I’m only very early in the setup of this (only a couple of days in with very few devices), most of them are still sitting around waiting to be flashed. Plus I’ve made a mess of it, I think I might spin out a complete new VM and see how we go from there. Try and clean it up a bit.
I’m probably touching a few nerves here, but what about HASS OS, posts on it are relatively recent (like this: Hass.io on Synology DSM (native package) ). Yes the thread started almost a year ago, but it still quite active, even today.
I’m pretty sure I have read that HassOS does have limitations. Is it something to stay away from?
I know a raspi is not optimal (because SD storage essentially), but is there an optimal setup? I would expect any linux distro would be ok and preferable over windows, which is no problem by me.
Anyway, thanks for yours and other people’s posts on it. I have just been frustrated by the fact it’s not as straight forward as I was expecting. I do have a specific config question but I will ask a question specifically about it. Thanks again for your reply
YAY! I’ll go get my boots!
