I like the Tasmota stuff but the devices would probably become a management nightmare as time goes on, or as the number of devices is increased. However, is it worthwhile me having a look at supporting the Tasmota IR device with this plugin or maybe not?
The Tasmota interface is a bit lacking as it follows no standard. This list
"Protocol" or "Vendor" (select one of the following):
RC5, RC6, NEC, SONY, PANASONIC, JVC, SAMSUNG, WHYNTER, AIWA_RC_T501, LG, MITSUBISHI, DISH, SHARP, DENON, SHERWOOD, RCMM, SANYO_LC7461, RC5X, NEC (non-strict), NIKAI, MAGIQUEST, LASERTAG, CARRIER_AC, MITSUBISHI2, HITACHI_AC1, HITACHI_AC2, GICABLE, LUTRON, PIONEER, LG2, SAMSUNG36, LEGOPF, INAX, DAIKIN152
includes duplicates, as some such as LG, are based on NEC format. Formats have already been well defined here.
Also listing out working codes like this will become untenable in the long term. It's already been done here.
Perhaps the Virtual Pronto Remote plugin could also produce raw "Tasmota" codes, so they could be used through this Tasmota interface?
I don't have the hardware, so can't test it. Might also have to rename the plugin as it will do output more than pronto codes.
It would be easier to encourage the Tasmota people to allow Pronto codes to be sent, which is an extremely popular format?
