RFXCOM plugin and Indigo 2022.1 / Python 3

Hi, I am reviewing the state of all my plugins before I move to Indigo 2022.1. Has this plugin been tested with Indigo 2022.1 / Python 3? I see that the last release has been almost 4 years ago so not sure if it still has anyone maintening it.

Neither of us have that hardware any more, so we can't test it. However, you can certainly go ahead and upgrade to 2022.1 and check it out yourself (we don't think there would be any reason it wouldn't work). If you find a showstopper for you, you can always just shut down 2022.1 and then start 2021.2 back up while you work out any issues.

Over the next few months, we'll be working with our developer community to get plugins updated that are more widely used, so this one will definitely be on the list of plugins to look at.

OK thanks Jay. I don't have much hooked to this plugin, just 3 thermostats/humidity sensors and an energy meter. But they are working fine hence I see no point in replacing them with something more modern. The old adage "if it ain't broke don't fix it!" applies... :mrgreen:

I’ve got one of these and the current plugin is working fine with 2022.1

Just upgraded and indeed confirmed as working! :D

Is there any way to mark these "old" plugins that are unlikely to be updated as "Tested and working on Indigo 2022.1"? It might help other users giving some confidence in upgrading to Indigo 2022.1 .

TBH, we have yet to find any "old" plugins that don't work, so the assumption at this point is that they all work with 2022.1. If we find one that doesn't and there's demand, we will do whatever we can to either fix the issue or get it updated to Python 3.

RFXCOM plugin and Indigo 2022.1 / Python 3

Hi Jay

Happy to take this plugin on if orphaned. It gets multiple usages a day in my house…

I had updated, and added a couple of new features a while back to properly support Dooya Blinds, amongst others.
Here:
https://github.com/Ghawken/rfxcom-plugin
&
https://github.com/IndigoDomotics/rfxco ... -674348865

I suspect python3 conversion may be a slow process given the low level bytes/strs/chars and the lengthy RFXCOM library….

But also can confirm works fine currently so no crashing rush…

Glenn
