Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.

Create a fork of https://github.com/esphome/esphome/tree/dev/esphome/components/waveshare_epaper were you add your display using the Arduino library as a template to add the missing components.

In general, it is easier to go the esphome.io (or the corresponding GitHub page) and search for your components (if you know them) than to search via Google.
Porting USB applications to the web. Part 1: libusb

ESPHome uses WebSerial to flash microcontrollers via the browser, saving the user from having to install a whole development environment and whatnot to do the initial firmware upload.
Super slick from a user POV, just connect the device via USB cable and hit the flash button. I admit I was a bit skeptical to all this, but having just tried it I must admit it was very, very convenient.
Using a rechargeable drill battery to power LED strips for closet lighting?

Bonus: I'd like to add in an ESP8266 chip like a wemos D1 mini using ESPHome (https://esphome.io/) to connect the whole thing to my Home Assistant, but that's really not necessary.

Non-product Plug-in recommendation?

In my case, I am using a button wired to an ESP-01S microcontroller board instead of something like a Flic button or Aqara switch. I generated firmware for the ESP-01S using ESPHome.

I’ve recently been building a lot of things with little esp32 microcontrollers running tasmota or ESPhome. It’s really easy and can be really point and click with HA integration.

RaspberryPI4 vs Arduino?
1 project | reddit.com/r/homeautomation | 10 Jan 2022
Others have suggested Home Assistant. That will run on a Raspberry Pi 4 and would be an excellent starting point. For building your own sensors, take a look at https://esphome.io/ - this works with Home Assistant and allows you to build your own sensors (and output devices) using the inexpensive NodeMCU Esp8266 modules.

If you want to go custom wireless i really would recomend to take a look at esphome. Some of those tuya abominations are also flashable with custom firmware to make them local.

Powering 16 ESP01s with servos
1 project | reddit.com/r/esp8266 | 25 Mar 2021
For power, I'd recommend Li-Ion primary (non-rechargeable) cells, whatever size works best for you. Those have essentially zero internal leakage and a 5 year shelf-life. If you've done it all correctly, it's conceivable it could be 5 years before you need to change the batteries (on top of a 30' ladder). You'd need a small high-efficiency buck converter to drop the 6.8V batteries down to 3.3V for the ESP, with a separate switched 5V linear regulator (one with a SHUTDOWN pin) to power the servos when they need to be driven. The ESP will consume 16-20uA in Deep Sleep, and the buck converter should mostly be off, except for when the ESP wakes every 3.5 hours (maximum Deep Sleep interval). If you're already using ESP-NOW to talk to the vent ESPs, then you could do a 'vent changed' check every time it wakes, otherwise it's more efficient to go back to Sleep quickly and wait until 12-24 hours has elapsed before you fire up a full WiFi connection. Not counting buck inefficiencies and servo movements, the ESP would only consume about 175mAh per year. The batteries will expire before they empty, maybe in 6-7 years.

ESPNow to Wifi Gateway - part of an Ultra Low Power Sensor project
2 projects | reddit.com/r/esp8266 | 16 Feb 2021
I presume you've seen Anthony Elder's examples? He got a single ESP to act as hub by restarting it. In a low-traffic environment that'd work. There was discussion and a new PR to speed up the reconnect time using WIFI_RESUME that's been merged in the git repo, which should make a single-ESP hub faster to respond. You'd need a little fault checking in case the BSSID changes of course, but for the normal case things would be faster.
