Apologies if this is a repeat discussion or mis-categorized. This is my first post! I couldn’t find a similar discussion.
What OS for the Raspberry Pi is suggested for high compatibility with lots of different smart home projects? I’m hoping to use HomeBridge, Node.js, Python scripts, etc. I’d like my RPi to be a sort of hub in order to be able to easily use Dash Buttons, RM Pro, HomeKit, Stringify, IFTTT (web hooks), etc. May install Home Assistant on it at some point (the non-OS version).
Am I making this too complicated? Will any OS do? Will OS’s that are more dedicated to smart home functions like Prota OS be beneficial at all? Insights appreciated. Thank you!
