R. I. P Hassbian
It is time for what was once the easiest way to install Home Assistant in retirement.
R. I. P Hassbian
Some of you are probably wondering why Hassbian is set and I’m going to try a proper motivation.
First of all, the age-old factor of time. I have not been as the lead developer of Hassbian able to give him the time and attention it requires, and there are only a few others, were the project continued. The only exception to this is @ludeeus, most of the heavy lifting is, if the image has been retooled, with a correct apt package and repository.
Second is that it is the best option for most to use as an installation method. Hatred.io Hassbian has excelled in almost all the possibilities I can think of.
The next step for Hassbian
Since Hassbian has been around for quite a while, there are quite a few users who do not want to go Hassbian way. To make this as simple as possible for users, here’s the plan.
- The repositories pi gene and hassbian-scripts hosting the Hassbian projects, the moved files to a new organization.
- last release is from me in mid-Q4 2019. This image is hosted gene under the pi-repository.
- in The pi-gen-repository, is revised to work with a standard raspbian image with minor changes for all want your own “Hassbian like” image. This was always possible, but the current repository is a bit out-of-date with the current layout of the Raspbian image.
- The hassbian-scripts package a final Version and will continue to be hosted on Gitlab. Some minor changes are made, the changes to the project.
The next step for Hassbian user
The Hassbian image has always added the same as a tutorial on Raspbian Lite install some packages.
It is not really any big changes for all users of Hassbian and for the documentation, please refer to the Manual installation on a Raspberry PI-method.
If you want to continue with something similar, have a look at the manual installation on a Raspberry Pi, since it was created on the Basis of Hassbian from.
For all others, I would whole-heartedly hate recommend.io, because it’s what I use personally, so far (what I hoped Hassbian had, but could have been better).
Last but not least
Last, but not least, many thanks to all those who helped in any way, the Hassbian project and image.
