  • HS3 BL Plugins and Linux

    I am looking for the plugins that really need to be converted to Linux for HS3.

    I do not plan to do them all. I just do not have the time needed to do all plugins.

    BLRF should work in linux now.

    I need to know which ones you use the most and need to be working in linux.

    The number of people needing a plugin will determine if it gets done or not


    Plugins compatible with LINUX:

    BLRF
    BLRadar (uses SQLite database now)
    BLStat (uses SQLite database now)
    BLOnkyo
    BLML2HS
    BLGarbage
    BLRandom
    BLReminders
    BLLAN
    BLControl

    Linux testers NEEDED

        BLRF should already work in Linux

        Working on BLRadar now

        I am going to need testers for Linux since I do not have it here

          @Bob,

          I can test the HS3 Russound plugin in Linux. I'll look as I am using your plugins today in HS2. Don't pay attention cuz they just work.

          So far to date have only tested Rob's HAI Plugin and Spud's UPB plugin. I am not sure that initially Spud had tested his plugin in Linux in the beginning as he showed me how to run it locally and remotely; sort of mentioning that "it should work in Linux" and it did work when I tried it.

          Its been easier to deal with the portability of the HS3 Linux implementation as I test today by just copying the HS3 directory from an Arm Based CPU tiny thing to an Atom embedded Linux tiny thing to an Ubuntu 14.40 big thing in just a matter of minutes; which personally is a neato way to test HS3 on different boxes. There is no more "windows" installation stuff (that said I do have a Windows HS3 box set up to concurrently side by side test Wintel next to Linux).

          What is neato is the transparency of the hardware to HS3. I am leaning a bit to Intel (testing today in AMD) over Arm (like 51% over 49% right now). This is more of a personal thing or opinion though.

          BTW as far as I recall; you were the very first HS3 plugin author to move your stuff over from HS2; that is a momentous milestone in itself.

            BLRadar is now linux compatible

            BLRadar is now in the updater and should work in Linux but will need testers.
            BLRadar now uses a SQLite database instead of an Access database so you will lose your history. Sorry about that

                I have utilized the updater in Linux but much of the time have also just downloaded the plugin because I have been testing remote plugin stuff. Running the HS3 plugin on some different box talking to HS3 in Wintel or Linux mode. Works fine too this way.

                Its a PITA to copy out the specific plugin details from the updater directory and figure out where everything is supposed to be.

                I went to the updater on the HS3 Pro running on Ubuntu 14.04 and downloaded the two above plugins just a few minutes ago.

                BLStat failed to install. Guessing the zip file is in the updater directory right now.

                    Can you post the plugin zip file for BLStat such that I can install it manually on the Ubuntu box.

                    Security stuff on Ubuntu 14.04 changed a whole bunch versus 13.X and 12.X.

                    I am guessing the installation script will show me what and where everything goes.

                    Easier to test one plugin at a time. Best to test plugin in Linux via a manual installation; then work on the updater stuff eh?

                    Yup; looked at the HS3 directory and it looks like it didn't download the plugin when I ran the updater.

                    There is nothing in the updater3 directory. Log is showing files and copying of files; but none of them are there; nor are the newly created subdirectories as seen below on the logs.

                        I found the unzipped updated files. It looks like it didn't copy the plugin to the HS3 root directory. Still checking.....

                        Will use this and do a manual copy over of the files. The directories are there.

                          OK so it looks like all I needed to do was copy over the plugin and conf file to the root directory. I refreshed plugins page and they came up. So it appears to be only the two files that were not copied to the HS3 root directory. Everything else copied fine from the updater.

                          Looks to be working. Just maybe you need to tweak out the updater script.

                            I am not sure the updater is anything I can fix.
                            I believe HS3 is not waiting long enough for the plugin to shutdown before trying to update it

                              Seeing this error in HS3 log. I have Z-Wave not connected nor a Z-Wave thermostat.

                              I did not configure any hardware for both plugins. That said they "look" to be OK except for the updater thing.

                              I have historically had a couple of issues with the SQLite versions running months and HS3 versions back.

                              Guessing though currently OK with version in place.
