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.

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.

>You can open them and reflash then with Tasmota but they are a pain to open.
Not sure if you tried it, but depending on the age of the stock or the tardiness of the OEM in applying security patches, it may be possible to flash them without opening them first.
Any Tuya-Convert plugs reccomendations?
1 project | reddit.com/r/homeautomation | 1 Dec 2021
I previously purchased these which worked great with Tuya-Convert OTA but the new models are shipping out with firmware that doesn't work unfortunately. Does anyone have recommendations of smart plugs that are able to be flashed OTA?

https://github.com/ct-Open-Source/tuya-convert is useful for re-f lashing some widely available smartplugs without opening them up. Then you can use MQTT or HTTP.
Unfortunately some newer plugs are incompatible with the hack (different chipset - https://github.com/ct-Open-Source/tuya-convert/issues/484 ).

State of the Art flash for Sonoff Basic R3?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/tasmota | 28 Aug 2021
Tuya Convert is probably the easiest method since it can be done OTA, but is only for Tuya devices, and even then doesn't always work, especially with newer Tuya firmware versions.
I have a dozen of these 2 years old, never opened Moes DS01 switches. Is there any way to flash them OTA from their stock firmware ?

I've accidentally ended up with 2x Tuya/Smartlife WiFi plugs. I thought I was buying Zigbee devices (fuck you deceiving AE sellers) and I won't be reimbursed. Unfortunately the plugs are too recent for tuya convert (see this).
Can anyone identify this brand of - probably - smart home switch?
1 project | reddit.com/r/smarthome | 19 Jun 2021
Ya they look like the generic brand of tuya compatible wifi switches. You can try to install tasmota on them by using Tuya Convert. https://github.com/ct-Open-Source/tuya-convert
Raspberry Pi Zero W Smartplug

Also besides Sonoff almost any Tuya smartplug/switch can be flashed OTA with open source firmware as long as it has an esp8266 SoC. I am partial to Gosund as they are frequently on sale and I bought about 12 of them for $42 last month. Tuya-Convert is what I use.
