New to HA. So new, in fact, that I don’t have it running yet – I’m spinning it up on a Pi4 as a docker container :).
I’ve run into some gaps in the current online documentation:
- various scripts don’t seem to run properly, or at all, with the 64 bit version of Raspbian.
- there are 3 ways offered to get zwavejs running in a docker container but I couldn’t find any discussion about how you’d choose between them (i.e., advantages and disadvantages)
- if you use the docker-compose.yml route you must edit the yml file before running docker-compose because it requires you insert the USB by_id path…but the need to do that is buried in a later part of the documentation
- running docker-compose as specified in the docs (
docker-compose up) runs the container in the foreground. That’s probably not what you want to do. You can background it by running
docker-compose up -d. I presume that daemonizes the container but haven’t verified that yet
BTW, thanx to How to set up ZWavejs2MQTT on a Raspberry Pi and integrate it with Home-Assistant - Flemming’s Blog (flemmingss.com) for pointing out how to configure the backgrounding.
What’s the process for suggesting edits to the online docs?
