I’m not aware of any; I would assume that if you run AppDaemon in a venv then you could do the same with Dash2.
I’m currently running it in a terminal window in as a python 3 command line for the beta.
Basically, I am doing what @aimc suggested until he tells me otherwise. My feeling is that for this beta to run smoothly, it’s best if we all use whatever install method that he suggests. There are a LOT of people who are going to be running this as soon as it is released and for the sake of Andrew’s sanity, I am strongly suggesting to folks that they follow the guidelines as he gives them.
I can only provide so much support and much of that is regarding skinning, which isn’t the focus of this first beta. Most of the tech support is going to be on how this gets installed or why that config doesn’t work on Docker or Ubuntu or what have you, and while I intend to help wherever I can, a lot of the first phase questions are going to be on him. Rene can also provide more expertise than I can, but I don’t know if he’s going to be back in time for the release.
So if you want more cool stuff like this and even better features, it just makes sense to not make these guys burn out. I’m saying that the smartest and most efficient thing we can do to support him (and Rene, who is on the road at the moment) is for all of us to try to be as standardized as we can in our set ups so that we are playing in a level field. It makes it that much easier to rule out things and get to what the issue is.
Just my personal two cents from experience in FOSS over the decade.
