Ratings and Reviews
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!
Where are the files?
How do I access yaml files, etc?
Developer Response ,
You can access the files through the dashboard by opening the File editor add-on.
Badly needs USB passthrough
This is such a great idea and seems promising but it's in dire need of the ability to pass through USB devices. I have a Bluetooth dongle and a Zigbee dongle that I need to be able to access in order to use this as a viable replacement for a virtual machine. And I imagine that's a pretty common setup for most HA users.
