Like many of you, I’m still in mourning over the death of the old graph IDE. Now I come here and see lots of discussions of people creating new drivers, and no where to be found is an actual link to where I can get those drivers.
People are saying, check out Mariano_Colmenarejo’s drivers. He’s amazing!
Yes, I’m sure he’s amazing. But when I go to his profile on this site I can see all of his posts, but nowhere is there a link to the actual drivers.
(Profile - Mariano_Colmenarejo - SmartThings Community)
I previously was a graph API superuser and now I feel like a n00b. Why did they make it so hard?
So, can someone please tell me, simply, WHERE DO I FIND DRIVERS???
You do not want to look in his profile. Instead… you want to look at the threads he (or other developers) creates. They generally post the invitation link to install their drivers in their first post.
for example → https://community.smartthings.com/t/edge-driver-mc-zigbee-switch-mc-zigbee-switch-power-mc-zigbee-multi-switch-and-child-mc/236953 if you scroll to the end of the very first post… he has the invitation link. Click on it, login to see all his drivers.
No, they don’t generally post an invitation link. They just say “Check out amazing_dude_2023’s driver”. They rarely post a link.
Why can’t we have a single repository for all “invitation links”?
I tried the Wiki (which, for some reason, I can’t even find the link anymore) but it goes to a 404 error.
Everything used to work great with Groovy. Now everything is terrible, confusing, and impossible. Why did Smartthings think this was a good idea?
Sorry… I can’t comment on the “Check out amazing blab blah blah” because I don’t see those. Again, all the main developers post invitation links in the threads announcing their drivers.
The wiki site you found recently shut down and there were no takers to assume management of it and pay for the hosting.
@jdroberts has a thread on alternative methods for finding drivers in the forum. https://community.smartthings.com/t/faq-using-the-quick-browse-lists-without-the-community-wiki/273601
There is also a new venture → https://smartthingsextras.com/
I pointed you to @Mariano_Colmenarejo drivers so that should get you started in your journey.
You can also post on which driver you are looking for and community members will point you in the right direction. Community members are the greatest resource on the forum
As @jkp mentioned, the community wiki has sadly lost its host. But you’ll be able to find most of the drivers with publicly available invitations by starting at the following:
And if any of the previous (excellent!) suggestions fail you, try using the SmartThings Community ‘Search’ function. Specify “Edge Driver” and the name of the device for which you are seeking the driver. Often that will turn up a number of results to help you track down the particular driver.
