Is there a getting started guide on this forum for a guy that wants to a do bit of tinkering that isn’t out of date and apply to the old Smartthings app?
Is there a guide to what works and what doesn’t currently?
Where to find these items, and how to use them?
Can this/these guide(s) be pinned to the top of the Wiki or How-to rather than lost in the details?
After hours of messing around, I’ve decided to swallow my pride and ask? I’ve seen a number of threads/replies by many on specifics (most notably @JDRoberts ), but there seems to be an absence of ‘the real basic I haven’t got a clue where to find thing for dumbies’ questions.
In my case, I wanted to get a Philio PAN04-1b sorted. I saw device handler developed by @erocm1231. I went into the Groovy IDE pasted his code from GitHub (the repo link isn’t offered where I live), but I still can’t use it (how do I even identify a custom device handler in the Smartthings App and use it? - one of those real basic, for dumbies questions). Then later in his thread it seems to imply it is no longer relevant as now child devices can be added? Does the groovy IDE even work with the new app? Or do I need to use Webcore now? Is Webcore even the the right tool?
Help would really be appreciated please? Thanks
