Alright, you learned about the manifest, so it's time to write your first code for your integration. AWESOME. Don't worry, we've tried hard to keep it as easy as possible.
More extensive examples of integrations are available from our example repository.
Each component needs to have 2 basic parts: it needs to define a
DOMAIN constant that contains the domain of the integration. The second part is that it needs to define a setup method that returns a boolean if the set up was successful. So let's take a look at how this looks:
DOMAIN = 'hello_state' def setup(hass, config): hass.states.set('hello_state.world', 'Paulus') # Return boolean to indicate that initialization was successful. return True
And if you prefer an async component:
DOMAIN = 'hello_state' async def async_setup(hass, config): hass.states.async_set('hello_state.world', 'Paulus') # Return boolean to indicate that initialization was successful. return True
That's it! If you load this, you will see a new state in the state machine.
To load this, add
hello_state: to your
configuration.yaml file and create a file
<config_dir>/custom_components/hello_state/__init__.py with one of the two codeblocks above to test it locally.
