This is driving me crazy. I am trying to add the webCoRE repository to “My SmartApps” but whatever I do, the link to add a new repository isn’t showing up. I have already disconnected my GitHub account twice and reconnected it. But no change in the UI of my smartthings account. Here is a screenshot:
inventory of RPIs are expected to improve in early 2023. when that occurs, you should be able to get them at cost from the major vendors and not have to pay those high cost from 3rd party merchants and sellers as they have been doing this year.
sign up to be notified when they are in stock at adafruit and pihut but act quickly if notified because they sell out quickly. again, word is inventory should start increasing at some point.
They disabled most repo admin functions in the IDE weeks/months ago. You can’t create new repo entries, but you can still edit an existing one to point to another repo. You can’t update a custom DTH to use a different repo, but you could (as of a couple weeks ago) still do commits to its existing repo.
Thank you very much. That is very sound advice, and I am starting to look into NUCs right now. I am also thinking that I might just get my feet wet with running HA on a VM on my Windows system first before moving on to a dedicated NUC.
Thanks for the update. I was able to get my feet wet with HASS setting it up on a VM on my Windows workstation. So far I am impressed as it automatically detected my WLED setup and other stuff that ST couldn’t handle. Nevertheless, I already had to edit my first yaml file to get something basic to work. Anyways, I am more and more leaning towards a very basic NUC as it does seem to offer more features at currently a similar price than a RPI 4 8GB starter kit.
I am also trying to be energy efficient as this thing will run 24/7. I am not sure how well a recycled system would do in that category. And i agree at current prices a RPI doesn’t make much sense. Although, it’s awesome to know that they are so expandable.
