Description

Hi I would love to see the FreeNAS plugin environmen expand with the Home Assistant plugin, instructions for iocage are here:

https://community.home-assistant.io/t/installing-hass-in-virtualenv-on-freenas-11-1-u3-w-iocage-jail/48220

Not sure if they are up to date but I hope this can happen in the future and we will see an official release for FreeNAS

Somebody did all the heavy lifting:
https://github.com/tprelog/iocage-homeassistant

So it's just a matter of integrating it into https://github.com/freenas/iocage-ix-plugins.

Hello

I created the guide and plugin linked above.

While I would love to see this as an official plugin, with the highly customizable nature of Home Assistant I feel it's best installed a standard jail. It is impossible to predict every use case. While lots of extras can be installed as separate plugins there are certain things that I believe need to be installed inside the same jail as HA in order to work properly. These "extras" sometime need additional packages to be installed. Two examples that I use myself are Appdaemon (https://appdaemon.readthedocs.io/en/latest/) and Gmusic (https://community.home-assistant.io/t/google-music-in-ha/10976)

Is it possible for an end user to further customize a plugin by installing additional packages when required?

Also updated instructions for Home Assistant on FreeNAS 11.2 can now be found in the resources https://www.ixsystems.com/community/resources/fn-11-2-iocage-home-assistant-jail-plugins-for-node-red-mosquitto-amazon-dash-tasmoadmin.102/

Hi,

Thank you for all the work you have put down. We will need to get documented how to submit it to the official repo.
