A long while ago (May, 2015) I wrote my 2000-th post on another forum: openLuup - running unmodified plugins on any machine. Here’s the gist of it:
...I want to work in a more open and stable [Vera] environment...
...All would be solved if Luup was open source and could be run on the plethora of cheap and reliable hardware available today. But it’s not. But we could get something like that effect if we engineered a sufficient subset of Luup to run on such a platform. Could it be done? What would we need?
3. web server
4. Luup compatible API
5. Device and Implementation xml file reader
6. Zwave bridge to Vera
7. runs most plugins without modification
What we wouldn’t need is UPnP.
What have we (nearly) got already?
- We have, courtesy of @amg0, the most excellent AltUI: Alternate UI to UI7, and that, I think, is probably the hardest one to do in the above list.
- Items 2 - 5, and 7, I’ve prototyped, in pure Lua, and posted elsewhere: DataYours on Raspberry Pi, running selected plugins unmodified, including: DataYours, EventWatcher, Netatmo, RBLuaTest, altUI. See screenshot attached.
Is it worth the effort? Probably not. Will I pursue this quest? Yes.
openLuup was the result.
