Gladys Assistant -an Open-Source Home Automation looks mostly wow!

 Gladys Assistant - a platform firstly centered only with raspberry pi, later with Linux has been growly slowly but a viable project to look into.

The idea of making an open-source with more powerful tools makes it easy, it contains

  • Node.js + Express server-side
  • A PWA powered by Preact on the frontend.
  • SQLite for the database

  • Home Automation is a serious topic. 

    Gladys Assistant doesn’t joke with security and wants its users to be protected from attackers.

    • Dependencies should be updated frequently

    • Dependencies should be carefully chosen to avoid backdoored or abandoned one

    • State of the art security measure should be implemented from day 1, and without asking the user to enter CLI commands

    • The Update process should work seamlessly to encourage users to upgrade frequently and has the latest upgrades

    More UI frontend and a stable backend with SQLite make it store data locally and it never shares data outside.
