The quest to to get my documents updated has been a slow moving because of a few things. I’ve had some new ideas about this quick start guide regarding what I want to include and how to include it.
First off, let me say that I am not trying to reinvent the wheel or develope some kind of hassio knock-off here. Simply put I have always tried to keep my own notes as I follow through guides on the internet. I don’t think I’m providing anything ground breaking or writing any new information. It should be more accurate to say this is collection other information, from around web, put together with a focus of using FreeNAS and Home Assistant Core. I’m just sharing my notes here. Because this seems helpful to share this with others, it motivates me to keep my notes updated and continue to share them with the community.
I also have this quick start post in the FreeNAS resources, but that version needs some serious love – Truth be told, I wanted to learn about markdown already to make post better looking in this forum and just to use for text files on GitHub. The FreeNAS forum does not directly use markdown different so I can not just copy and paste the same guide to three different places. I need a better way to maintain this, right now information is spread to 3 locations…
Enter Squirrels 40812 and 40813
I have just discovered GitHub Pages.
jekyll – Because I can’t leave well enough alone.
So rather than constantly updating things in multiple locations, I’m going to try moving everything to my GitHub Pages this will, eventually, be the place to find any updated information or steps to this guide
It’s almost gonna seem like I actually know what I’m doing – We’ll call the whole thing HassBSD. It will be like some kind of mutant love child from that crazy night Hassbian and Hassio got drunk then had a three-way with FreeNAS
And last thing about ESPHOME
I am going to remove ESPHome the from the Home Assistant Core FreeNAS plugin. I do not want to keep adding additional services to this jail unless there is a good reason to do so. Don’t worry, ESPHome isn’t going away, I’m just moving out on it’s own. It is now a separate FreeNAS plugin. I’ve already submitted a pull request to ix-system so it can be included on the community plugin page.
If your on FreeNAS 11.3 and want to test this now, you can install it from the FreeNAS console
iocage fetch -P esphome -g https://github.com/tprelog/freenas-plugin-index.git
