I’ve been running Home Assistant on Raspberry Pis for a long time, but I’m looking at moving to something a little more Powerful.
I’ve recently started running things in Docker containers on a Mac mini (Sonnar, Jackett, Transmission, Plex etc.) and have been impressed with the ease of use/simplicity, so thought of running Home Assistant in a Docker container.
I like the idea of running Hass.io for the easy snapshots and the addons that aren’t available in ‘regular Home Assistant’, but also read that running Hass.io in Docker is basically ‘running a container in a container’ so not sure if it’s recommended or a good idea?
Alternatively, is there a way to run the ‘regular version of Home Assistant’ in Docker and also be able to use the addons produced for Hass.io?
What’s recommended for running Hass.io on something other than a Raspberry Pi? (I was also considering getting an Intel NUC), or is there a way to install/use Hass.io addons in the regular Home Assistant in a Docker container or VM?
