Some time ago I started experimenting with the openHAB API. As I’m a mobile developer in the Microsoft stack I started with a UWP project. I took in the HABdroid code and started converting bits and pieces until I could get sitemaps and items to load in the app.
From there on I contacted @Kai to see if I could get this to eventually become the official openHAB app for UWP, we’ve been mailing for some time now and it’s about time to involve the openHAB community in the project.
The repo is at https://github.com/openhab/openhab.windows feel free to fork it, read the readme and contributing guidelines and start writing awesome code for this app!
So where are we on the app? Sitemaps are getting loaded, there are working widgets for the most basic items like switches, sliders, text. There’s a settings page that has all the same settings as HABdroid, but only server url is working, no support for username / password protected openHAB installations or SSL just yet. The app works mostly on both mobile and desktop and we’re targetting both Win10 10586 (November update) and 14393 (Anniversary Update)
We need you!
As you can tell, there’s still a lot of work to be done before we can push out a first release. If you want to help out, please do so! Let’s make this an awesome app!
