HomeAssistant.__init__ requires passing a string to it

· One min read

The signature of HomeAssistant.__init__ has been changed from no arguments to require the configuration directory as a string to be passed to it. Scripts, tests etc. outside of the HomeAssistant core repo which create HomeAssistant objects will need to be updated.

The change was introduced in core PR#98442

If backwards compatibility is important, this is a way to achieve it:

hass = HomeAssistant() # pylint: disable=no-value-for-parameter
except TypeError:
hass = HomeAssistant(config_dir) # pylint: disable=too-many-function-args
