I think I reported my file structure incorrectly in a previous post. I have really struggled with getting the file structure correct since I see differences when looking around. It would be nice if the references to the file structure would show the full file path and be clear if Windows 10 or another operating system. I may have this install incorrect but will try to adjust as needed when I am sure what the intended file structure is.
I am a new (or at least hope to be) user of openHAB2. I have no rules to convert so that is not an issue here. I have used VB.NET for my more recent home automation efforts. Several years ago I used HomeSeer and prior to that I used a system called Homebase. I wish VB.NET was an option for scripting in openHAB2 but as near as I can tell from what I have read apparently it is not.
I would like to avoid spending time learning things that will be going away since I assume I would want to move to openHAB3 as soon as that is an option.
I can see there are a lot of very experienced and knowledgeable people here and I would be appreciative of any thoughts or words of wisdom any of you may have on how best to proceed in a way that will make things easier down the road. I feel somewhat like a first grader in a room full of engineers.
Here are some initial thoughts, some of which may be way off base.
Add-ons - Paper UI
Bindings - Paper UI
Things - Paper UI
Channels - Paper UI
Items - Files
Groups (if used) - Files
Rules - JSR223 Scripting - Jython/Python
Should I assume it is too early to try openHAB3 ?
If so, any ideas on how long before openHAB3 might be available?
