Home Assistant Community Store (HACS)

According to their github page

HACS is a integration that gives the user a powerful UI to handle downloads of custom integrations and plugins.

Highlights of what HACS can do:

  • Help you discover new custom elements.
  • Help you install (download) new custom elements.
  • Help you keep track of your custom elements.

In other words… it is a must have if you need to expand the functionalities of your Home Assistant installation with the non-official components created by the community.

The installation is easy. Just follow their wiki on github.

Please note that with the d-diot image you easily can access your home hassistant config folder via samba.

In the d-diot image the custom updater is not installed, so you don't have to remove anything.
