Really good...Almost Great!

Far and away the easiet way to run HA as a native feeling server/app on your Mac. Its fast, stable, and smooth without having to mess around with Docker, Virtualization software, or another piece of hardware liike a Raspberry Pi. My only "complaint" is that I'm having trouble accessing a usb HD for external data storage from this HA set up. I'm hoping the developer can provide some guidance for this. If that can be sorted out, then its an easy 5 star rating hands down. Thanks Kenneth Kao!

Great Value

Running on a 2020 M1 MacMini with 16GB RAM and a 1TB SSD. As I write, I've been using this for 3 weeks to extensively tinker with Home Assistant (HA), and I am a happy camper so far. I'm a newbie to the HA world, and this has been a great way to start. It's clear that seperate from this app, the HA project itself is a hobbist work in progress and as fragile, if not more so, than any software -- and susceptible to mishaps, not if, but when. Be sure to maintain frequent backups and not to assume that all will be peaches and cream.

Where are the files?

How do I access yaml files, etc?

You can access the files through the dashboard by opening the File editor add-on.
