Repositories with Docker

Hi, I think I’m doing something wrong. I have HASSio installed in a Docker container and it seems to be working fine. The only thing is that when I want to add something from github either using the command line or respositories, it doesn’t show up in HA.

I admit that I’m new to linux and HA but I’ve been following the instructions and am still having some issues. For instance, I followed the instructions on how to download and install HACS but since I don’t know Docker very well, I think it may have installed on my Raspian instead of the container with HA.

If anyone can point me in the right direction, I’d greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

What are you trying to add?

I’m still looking around but the main thing right now is HACS. I was following the installation instructions here: https://hacs.xyz/docs/installation/manual but I’m not really sure if it will work b/c my HA is installed in a container with Docker and not on Raspian. If I use: curl -sfSL https://hacs.xyz/install | bash - won’t it install somewhere else than the container that my HA is located in?

I was also looking at :


Thanks for your help!

Follow rhe instructions you linked, but skip the alternative method. This will indeed install it on the Host OS and not in the docker container.

Thank you for your response but I’m trying to do the opposite. I DO want it to install in the same docker container as HASSio.

It should install under $CONFIG/custom-components which is NOT in the docker container. (Well it is and it isn’t, it is on the host system but linked into the docker container, so it survives restarting the docker container).

Follow the instructions.

I was unclear in my previous post, I wanted to say that the alternative method will install it on the host OS.

Oh, I see. Thank you!
