Continuing the discussion from Home Assistant Emoncms Addon:
I have been thinking about this add-on by @inverse and one of the limitations I think it will hit is the inability to edit the settings held in
settings.ini via the UI.
There are 2 options as I see it;
- Build a mechanism to edit the ini file and write it back
- Move the settings to the sql database that is already used for some settings, and produce a UI for editing them.
I suspect the tools for creating the UI to edit settings held in a database are probably more readily available than editing the file.
There could be a flag that is set when the settings file is read the first time (on migration) with the option to reset all settings to default by reading the file again.
As I say, bit of a strawman…
