I want to keep it generic - openHAB is not the only user base for this, although it is clearly the main one and the docs on the database site do mention OH and are clearly OH focussed. However, here is at least one other system using the database that is not derived at all from Eclipse SmartHome, but there are other systems that are derived from ESH. For me, the more the merrier as we (hopefully ) end up benefitting from a larger community of users with a higher quality data set.
Yes, they do in many places - maybe it’s not as prominent as it could be though and I’m happy to update this to make things clearer.
There is a section in the main doc -age on the database - this links to the database and is where I tried to explain the database function. Maybe this needs to be clearer -:
And each device page links to the database -:
There are a few other places as well, but I guess you get the picture
Yes, I’m happy to make this clearer in the docs. Docs are one of those things - as I’ve posted above, I’ve tried to link to the database in a way I think is sensible, but everyone reads docs differently, and expects to find information in different places, so I’m more than happy for suggestions on improvements
