If you want to move your code (like all those virtual devices you’re using) to the cloud before the Groovy/DTH/IDE shutdown, your two choices seem to be either use AWS Lambda, or set up and manage your own cloud server. (You can also go the direct-connect route, which personally I think is great to do on a Raspberry Pi, but that is another topic…)
I’ve started looking at how easy it is to implement schema connectors on Lambda, and it seems to be pretty straight-forward. However the hurdle there is the OAUTH2 requirement…
ST presumes that you are developing on your company cloud which will provide the OAUTH authentication services. But what if I’m an individual developing home automation code? AWS has no OAUTH solution, so what options are there for leveraging a third party (hopefully FREE) service for an OAUTH authentication server?
I’ve gotten the example schema connector code working on Lambda, but only by using the mock oauth server on Glitch (from their webhook example!). This seems to work for only a brief period of time, however. (I suspect the ‘fake’ token doesn’t last and can’t be refreshed)
I think we will all need a solution here, so would like to hear from anyone who has already gone down this road or is more knowledgeable.
