Changelog

All notable changes to this project will be documented in this file. Given the high speed of development in the first phase, changes are being reported only starting from v0.20.2.

[Unreleased]

  • Removed clipboard backend. Enabling the clipboard plugin will also enable clipboard monitoring, with no need for an additional backend.

[0.23.3] - 2022-06-01

Added

  • Added ntfy integration (see #219).
  • Support for a default config.yaml if one isn't specified in the default locations.

Changed

  • The HTTP server dependencies are now marked as required, since the default config.yaml will have the HTTP backend enabled by default in order to allow the creation of a first user.
  • Updated Vue.js frontend dependencies to the latest version.
  • Removed bulma from the frontend dependencies, making the frontend much lighter and loading times much faster.
  • Other UI improvements.

Fixed

  • More reliable cronjobs in case of DST change or any clock changes in general (see #217).
  • Fixed --redis-queue argument.

[0.23.2] - 2022-03-27

Added

  • Support for asynchronous events over GPIO PINs. It is now possible to specify a list of monitored_pins in the gpio plugin configuration. A change in the value on those GPIO PINs (caused by e.g. a button, a binary sensor or a probe) will trigger a platypush.message.event.gpio.GPIOEvent that you can use in your automation scripts.

  • Simplified script API to interact with platform variables (closes #206). You can now read and write stored variables in your Platypush scripts through a much more intuitive interface compared to explicitly using the variable plugin explicitly:

from platypush.context import Variable

# ...

my_var = Variable.get('my_var')
my_var = int(my_var) + 1
Variable.set(my_var=my_var)

[0.23.0] - 2022-03-01

Added

Fixed

  • Merged several PRs from dependabot.

  • Fixed management of the CN field in the calendar.ical plugin.

[0.22.10] - 2022-02-07

Added

  • Refactored the dbus integration. The plugin and backend have been merged into a single plugin component, and the ability to subscribe to custom signals has been added.

Fixed

  • Proper support for empty payloads on the integrations that trigger a SensorDataChangeEvent.
  • Fixed possible infinite recursion on the Pushbullet integration in case of errors where the error and close handlers keep calling each other in a loop.

[0.22.9] - 2022-01-06

Added

  • Added rss integration (replaces the cumbersome and deprecated backend.http.poll).

Fixed

  • Fixed timezone handling in calendar integrations.
  • Fixed handling of ignored directories in the file.monitor backend.

[0.22.8] - 2021-12-13

Added

  • Added support for audio tracks in Plex integration.

Changed

  • Web server uWSGI wrapper changed from uwsgi to gunicorn.

Fixed

  • Fixed client ID assignment logic in MQTT backends to prevent client ID clashes and reconnections (closes #205).
  • Updated LTR559 integration to be compatible with the new API.
  • Updated Chromecast integration to be compatible with pychromecast >= 10.
  • Better handling of media errors.

[0.22.6] - 2021-11-27

Added

  • Added support for converting webpages to markdown in http.webpage.simplify even if no outfile is specified.

Fixed

  • Improved robustness of the ICal calendar parser in case some fields (e.g. *status) are not defined.

[0.22.5] - 2021-11-15

Added

  • Added mastodon plugin.
  • Added chat.irc plugin.
  • Added mailgun plugin.

Fixed

  • Fixed switchbot.status method in case of virtual devices.
  • Fixed platypush[alexa] optional package installation.

[0.22.4] - 2021-10-19

Added

  • Support for IR virtual devices in Switchbot plugin.
  • Added google.maps.get_travel_time method (closes #115).
  • Support for custom YouTube video/audio formats on media plugins.

Fixed

  • Responses for requests received over an MQTT backend are now delivered to the right topic (<device_base_topic>/responses/<msg_id>).
  • Various fixes on media plugins.

[0.22.3] - 2021-10-01

Added

  • gotify integration (see #198).

[0.22.2] - 2021-09-25

Added

  • ngrok integration (see #196).

[0.22.1] - 2021-09-22

Fixed

  • zigbee.mqtt backend now no longer requires the MQTT backend/plugin to be enabled.

  • Fixed bug on empty popcorn API responses.

Changed

  • Created CI Gitlab pipeline to replace the Platypush event-based pre-existing pipeline.

Removed

  • Removed docs references to removed/abstract integrations.

[0.22.0] - 2021-09-16

Changed

  • Platypush now uses manifest files to describe plugins and backends. Each extension is now expected to provide a manifest.yaml file in its folder, reporting its package name, pip dependencies, required system packages and optional extra installation commands.

  • Refactored platyvenv, platydock, documentation generation and plugin management engine. They are now both faster and more robust, since they can rely on the manifest definition to operate instead of pydoc strings conventions or config.yaml conventions.

  • platyvenv start now starts the environment process synchronously and it prints stdout/stderr instead of redirecting it to the logs dir (previous behaviour: platyvenv start used to start the process asynchronously and the logs were stored to ~/.local/share/platypush/venv/<env>/logs/<stdout|stderr>.log).

Removed

  • Removed Homeseer integration - it was based on a Python integration that has now been pulled out of PyPI and GitHub. A new integration may come in the future if there is enough demand for it.

[0.21.4] - 2021-08-24

Fixed

  • Fixed JWT token generation, since python-jwt >= 2.0 always returns strings (not bytes) upon jwt.encode.

[0.21.3] - 2021-07-28

Added

  • Added sun plugin for sunrise/sunset events.

  • Added slack integration.

[0.21.2] - 2021-07-20

Added

  • Added music.spotify backend to emulate a Spotify Connect receiver through Platypush.

  • Added music.spotify plugin.

  • Added music.spotify UI integration.

[0.21.1] - 2021-06-22

Added

  • Added switchbot plugin to interact with Switchbot devices over the cloud API instead of directly accessing the device's Bluetooth interface.

  • Added marshmallow dependency - it will be used from now own to dump and document schemas and responses instead of the currently mixed approach with Response objects and plain dictionaries and lists.

  • Support for custom MQTT timeout on all the zwavejs2mqtt calls.

  • Added generic joystick backend backend.joystick.jstest which uses jstest from the standard joystick system package to read the state of joysticks not compatible with python-inputs.

  • Added PWM PCA9685 plugin.

  • Added Linux native joystick plugin, backend.joystick.linux, for the cases where python-inputs doesn't work and jstest is too slow.

Changed

  • switch.switchbot plugin renamed to switchbot.bluetooth plugin, while the new plugin that uses the Switchbot API is simply named switchbot.

Fixed

  • More robust reconnection logic on the Pushbullet backend in case of websocket errors.

[0.21.0] - 2021-05-06

Added

  • Support for custom PopcornTime API mirror/base URL.

  • Full support for TV series search.

Fixed

  • Fixed torrent search (now using a different PopcornTime API mirror).

  • Migrated SASS engine from node-sass (currently deprecated and broken on Node 16) to sass.

  • Fixed alignment of Z-Wave UI header on Chrome/Webkit.

[0.20.10] - 2021-04-28

Fixed

  • Fixed zwave/zwavejs2mqtt interoperability.

[0.20.9] - 2021-04-12

Added

  • Added zwavejs2mqtt integration (see #186.

Fixed

  • Major LINT fixes.

Removed

  • Removed unmaintained integrations: TorrentCast and Booking.com

[0.20.8] - 2021-04-04

Added

Fixed

  • Fixed zigbee2mqtt backend error in case of messages with empty payload (see #184).

  • Fixed compatibility with all versions of websocket-client - versions >= 0.58.0 pass a WebSocketApp object as a first argument to the callbacks, as well as versions < 0.54.0 do, but the versions in between don't pass this argument.

[0.20.7] - 2021-03-26

Fixed

  • Fixed race condition on media.vlc.stop when clearing the VLC instance.

  • Fixed dashboard widgets custom classes being propagated both to the container and to the widget content [see #179]

  • Fixed compatibility with SQLAlchemy >= 1.4.

[0.20.6] - 2021-03-16

Added

  • Added log.http backend to monitor changes to HTTP log files (see #167).

  • Added file.monitor backend, which replaces the inotify backend (see #172).

Removed

  • Removed legacy pusher script and local backend.

Fixed

  • Fixed support for Z-Wave switches.

  • Fixed possible race condition on VLC stop.

[0.20.5] - 2021-03-12

Added

  • Added support for a static list of devices to actively scan to the bluetooth.scanner backend (see #174).

  • Added weather.openweathermap plugin and backend, which replaces weather.darksky, since the Darksky API will be completely shut down by the end of 2021.

Fixed

  • Cron expressions should adhere to the UNIX cronjob standard and use the machine local time, not UTC, as a reference (closes #173).

  • Better management of Z-Wave values types from the UI.

  • Disable logging for ZwaveValueEvent events - they tend to be very verbose and can impact the performance on slower devices. They will still be published to the websocket clients though, so you can still debug Z-Wave values issues from the browser developer console (enable debug traces).

  • Added suffix to the zigbee.mqtt backend default client_id to prevent clashes with the default mqtt backend client_id.

[0.20.4] - 2021-03-08

Added

  • Added SmartThings integration.
  • Support for custom Redis message queue name over the --redis-queue argument.

Fixed

  • Refactored tests to use pytest instead of unittest.
  • Some major bug fixes on procedures and hooks context evaluation.

[0.20.3] - 2021-02-28

Fixed

  • Several bug fixes on the VLC plugin, including proper management of stop/end-of-stream, volume set and missing integration requirements in requirements.txt and setup.py.

[0.20.2] - 2021-02-27

Fixed

  • More stable ZeroConf backends registration logic in case of partial or missing results.
  • Improved and refactored integration tests.

Added

  • Support for passing context variables (${}) from YAML procedures/hooks/crons to Python procedure/hooks/crons.
  • New integration test for testing procedures.
