I really like Openhab I’ve used it for a couple of years now for my home automation server. So It pains me to say I’ve started to hate the Habpanel . As you have said its a very heavy software, Openhab and my wife is about to explode because the Habpanel UI wont do what she wants it to do, especially with the dragging problem with the widgets . I’m really eager to try your light weight image but I have a few questions .
- I’ve never used Arch OS before apart from being a fan was there any reason you chose it ? does it have any improvements compared to a debian based OS? ( I only ask as I’ve Mostly used Debian based Distros and would possibly install it manually on rasbian or something similar .
2)I Have openhab as my HA Server would it be possible to control the interface via Mqtt and access it this way (only the main UI not the scheduling obviously ) when away from home. otherwise I would probably not bother setting it up to access via Port forwarding, dyn dns etc…
3)Obviously its very early in development but how stable would you think you set up is ? as I say my wife just wants it to work now (cold time of year ) and she’s getting annoyed with me promising a solution and not delivering .
does it use the newly discovered LCD driver that reduces the load average ?
is the schedule setup stored and restored after reboots?
6)I take it I would have to change this to 23 ?
self.GPIO_PIN = 12 # this can be 23 as well
thanks in advance
