I’ve been running a NixOS configured Home-Assistant instance for quite a while now and so far I’ve been very satisfied. I have done all my configuration in Nix itself which then generates the YAML configuration files and this has been working wonderfully.
Since a few weeks, I am now seeing warnings akin to “The tasmota integration does not support YAML configuration”. I’ve not noticed any loss in functionality, but I am still worried about this trend and what it means for declarative Home-Assistant environments. The HA crowd seems to be moving towards a stateful UI-configured environment for a while now, but so far the YAML option was always there which no longer seems to be the case.
Is anyone already experiencing actual issues from this? Will I have to look for another home automation solution anytime soon or will there be a need to freeze Home Assistant at some point? It is a bit of a bummer that also the Open Source space around Home Automation seems not much more stable than the proprietary one.
