Custom Android App

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fc8fc42c4b8>

Hello,
I would like to know if it is possible to create a custom Android app from scratch to operate with a Rasp (with OpenHAB running on it of course). Has anyone tried ?

This is definitely possible, as long as you use the REST API. There is already at least one, called HomeHabit (formerly Rotini) …

Thank you for your quick reply !
I’ll try very soon :slight_smile:

BTW, what is your intention to have another Android App ??? Wouldn’t it be better to join forces to enhance/improve the existing one ???

I do a bit of Android development and I would like to try out a new UI Toolkit (Jetpack Compose).
To do so I think that the fastest way is to make a new project from scratch.
If I find some ways in which I can contribute to the existing app I’ll do so !!
