Creating components

Alright, you’re ready to make your first component. AWESOME. Don’t worry, we’ve tried hard to keep it as easy as possible.

Example component

Add hello_state: to your configuration.yaml file and create a file <config_dir>/custom_components/ with the below code to test it locally.

DOMAIN = 'hello_state'

def setup(hass, config):
    hass.states.set('', 'Paulus')

    return True
