I am trying to make the journey from OH 1.x to OH 2.x and it’s taking me blood, toil, tears and sweat.
I thought OH2 was meant to be easier to install and IMO it’s harder, although I like the new concepts and possibilities it brings. That’s why I want to migrate to OH2.
However, I would like to make things the old way not using PaperUI at all. It is quite confusing because some things are done through PaperUI (and stored god knows where) and some others are done manually. I don’t like to install a binding in PaperUI and not knowing where the hell it has been installed, since I like upgrading OH from time to time and it’s a mess if you don’t know where things are.
Therefore, I would like to install all my bindings/actions the old way (placing a .JAR file in the addons folder). Also with the persitence services, if that’s possible.
My questions are:
Where can these 2.x JAR files be downloaded from?? Where are they??
There is a big .KAR file in the website with all the bindings but I would like to choose individual bindings. I don’t need them all.
Can I just copy the JAR files (even the 1.x files) in the addons folder and OH2 would load them?
Are the latest 1.9.0 bindings the ones that I should use in case there are not OH2 bindings?
What happens (in my hard-disk) when you install a binding with PaperUI. Where does it install it?
