Homeyduino + miflora

Is it possible to add the capability „measure_moisture“ to Homeyduino? It would be fine for getting all values of miflora via esp32.

I don’t think it’s possible to add custom capabilities with Homeyduino. But the best way to verify this is to just try it and see if it works.

But is it possible to add new capabilities like „measure_moisture“ in the node-homey-lib?

I refer to " A list of capabilities supported by Homey can be found in the developer documentation, in the reference" -> it is specified in " Usage & getting started" with Homeyduino.

You can only add custom (new) capabilities in the app.json file of an app, so only for new apps. Homeyduino is an existing app, so you can’t add custom capabilities to it.

Is it possible to change in an existing app a capability?

If you have the code of that app, then you can add custom capabilities to it and run it using the CLI tool.

I know I’m a little exhausting, but where can I get the code for the app…or would it be possible to add a new capability to…see below?

The code for the Homeyduino app is here: https://github.com/athombv/com.athom.homeyduino

And that list is just a fixed list of all standard capabilities.
