Manage (Install, track, upgrade) and discover custom elements for Home Assistant directly from the UI.
What?* HACS is a integration that gives the user a powerful UI to handle downloads of custom integrations and plugins.
Highlights of what HACS can do:
Step 1 might fail for an unknown reason, but if so:
Restart Home Assistant with sudo snap restart home-assistant-snap and wait for it to boot up. Go back and continue as described in step 1.
sudo snap restart home-assistant-snap
You should be prompted with some check-boxes that you need to confirm and then a screen to connect to github api.
Wallah! HACS should be up running. :)
Can't find HACS in the integration list?
Open up a terminal and issue:
sudo snap connect home-assistant-hacs:components home-assistant-snap:components
HACS should auto-connect, but sometimes it might fail. You also have to do this manually if you are using a self-snapped home-assistant-snap.
Please see https://git.giaever.org/joachimmg/home-assistant-hacs#install-from-the-snap-store-recommended for more details.
UPDATES? Out of date?
No worries. HACS is managed by HACS and Home Assistant. After installation you will be able to update HACS whenever there is a new update!
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
If you’re running Kubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) or later, including Kubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) and Kubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish), you don’t need to do anything. Snap is already installed and ready to go.
Versions of Kubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) don’t include snap by default, but snap can be installed from the command line as follows:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
To install Home Assistant Community Store, simply use the following command:
sudo snap install home-assistant-hacs
