I would like to offer my sincere gratitude for people who develop and maintain Home Assistant and for this community which is very actively sharing their projects and developing integrations and custom cards for Home Assistant!
Few years back I was about to start my own project to develop visualization for my heating data but that seemed like an overwhelming exercise. Luckily I eventually found Home Assistant.
I wanted to share back to the community and published my Home Assistant configuration in Github:
You can find more details and screenshots in my Github repo. I use decent amount of integrations but mostly rely on MQTT to publish data from various sources. Like many here, I extensively use YAML to setup everything and there is a lot of it… I have a hate and love relationship with it but at the moment it is the most flexible way to configure everything and I’m so used to it that it is my go-to solution instead of the UI based configuration.
At the moment deploying the setup is non-trivial but if people are interested I intent to try setting up a devcontainer with demo sensors so that you can try the setup yourself.
Thanks again everyone for this great community!
P.S. I wonder if there will be an API for HA backend some day? Wondering if it would enable people building their custom dashboards and not doing that much YAML.
