Hi,

I see that on a German forum there is nice discussion on the Beta OH2 bindings, I wish we have the same here in English./

What is the status of the binding?, is it any good for production use? Can we have some documentation?

 

I'm just starting a new major automation project that will be OH2 based and wonder if I can start using that binding or I have to rely on the custom  Python/MQTT bridges for all of inputs and outputs.

Hi,

The bindings are still in beta, but everything should be working, there is only some polishing missing, but I've been occupied with other projects for the last few months.

There will be some changes to the modeling of some Bricklets, for example input pins of the IO Bricklets are currently OnOffTypes but will be changed to OpenClosedTypes.

We actually have documentation available here: https://www.tinkerforge.com/en/doc/Software/API_Bindings_openHAB.html#api-bindings-openhab

Currently the Bindings only work with PaperUI. I've tried implementing support for the text files, but using them causes strange behaviour where things and channels are duplicated. I'm not sure if this can be fixed easily, as I'm assuming this is a problem with the dynamic thing and channel creation.

meh, this is a no go for me, I need a text file config as often I do auto generate things from a template file for repetitive controllers. (like when I have 10 roms with 4 fancoil heaters  each). Would that still be a problem when a user would be very careful not to do any things in PaperUI?

Hi,

I don't think so, sorry. Finishing the binding will take some time, I would estimate about two to four weeks. So it is not really squeezeable. I will continue to work on the binding as soon as the heap of tasks for our charging station is done.

Sorry, I've got no ETA yet. Everyone here is still focused on programming and building the chargers. The project is not dead, but don't expect a new version in the next few months.
