Noob SmartThings developer… looking for clarity/direction

It’s a really bad time to start developing handlers because a lot of the stuff in the documentation is going away and ST hasn’t provided any information on how to write handlers for the new app.

In the topic below they mentioned new metadata that replaces the tiles, custom capabilities, and having to refactor parent/child handlers, but haven’t provided any details.

They said they should be releasing the details within a few weeks/months, but they’ve been saying things like that for over a year…

They’re also trying to get users to stop using custom handlers and use the built in handlers instead.
