[Homey Pro (Early 2023)] App unsupported list

Security patches will be a thing for a while but to be fair they have supported this hardware since 2015 that’s 8 years of support

The extremely important app Image Poster is now upgraded with support for latest/coming devices.

Latest version: 2.0.0

That’s because it was the only hardware there was.

Where do you read that?
It is only about apps that still use SDKv2.

All Homeys will get updated still with new features etc (though that might cause you to not be able to use apps that haven’t been updated yet).
There has nothing been said when such an update will come for the older Homey Pros. (It will come, we just don’t know when)

It is just that you can’t install SDKv2 apps anymore from January on, as all apps using SDKv2 will not be available in the appstore.
Which is 80-90% of the list above if none get updated.

A post was split to a new topic: Concern of SDKv2 being deprecated

If you have a Upnp server or NAS or something, you can use the Universal Music Player to do the same as soundboard (only from a USB stick or NAS).

Bob Kersten just transfered Chronograph to me.

This means it will be updated to SDK3 and maintained.

Really! That would be amasing! Really please keep that folder so we can fully migrate!
And keep that lovely customisation everyone seems to love!

Great.
I was just thinking about the other day whether if I should try doing that myself.
I am an experienced software developer but have not tinkered with node.js (yet).
This was very great news.

There may be enough other apps that need a new developer and for you to tinker with node.js :wink:

Is it difficult then to put an app from sdk2 to sdk3?

Depends how good you are at node.js. :slight_smile:

And how much time you can spend on it :wink:

I don’t know that much about it but big compliments for you guys

Yeah I plan to run both alongside each other and gradually migrate.

Thank you!

  • Search and display SDk2 apps + updates
    (SDk3 is OK, but SDk2 is deprecated)

  • Show all app permissions; Possible incompatible apps with Pro 2023: ledring, speech, sound, nfc (pls tell me if this is not correct)


Just save and run this Homeyscript, the result is sent to Timeline:

// Search and display app updates for SDk2 (SDk3 is OK, but SDk2 is deprecated)

// Show all app permissions; Possible incompatible apps with Pro 2023: ledring, speech, sound, nfc

let updatesArr = await Homey.apps.getApps().then(f => Object.values(f).reduce((r,b)=>Object.assign(r,b.sdk == 2 ? {[b.name]:b.updateAvailable} : ''), {}));
let appUpdates = JSON.stringify(updatesArr, null, 1);
//console.log('SDk2 apps with Update available:\n' + appUpdates);

let permissionsArr = await Homey.apps.getApps().then(f => Object.values(f).reduce((r,b)=>Object.assign(r, 
{[b.name]:b.permissions}), {}));
let appPermissions = JSON.stringify(permissionsArr, null, 1);
//console.log('\nPermissions:\nPossible incompatible apps with Pro 2023: ledring, speech, sound, nfc\n' + appPermissions); 

Homey.flow.runFlowCardAction({
        uri: 'homey:manager:notifications',
        id: 'create_notification',
        args: {
          text: 'SDk2 apps with Update available:\n' + appUpdates +'\n\n' + 'Permissions:\nPossible incompatible apps with Pro 2023: ledring, speech, sound, nfc\n' + appPermissions + '\n\nScript sdk2-apps_show_updates_-_show_all_permissions'
        }
});


It’s now combined with this nice one:

That is very handy @Peter! Thx!
Only thing is: the script says Tado (the Athom version) is on v2 while the App Store says it is compatile with Homey Pro 2023.
Life 360 is just the other way around: the script says v3, while the App Store says incompatible…
:thinking:

All Athom apps on SDK2 show no messages because of that. I guess they filtered them out.
But some SDK3 apps do show a warning, because of certain permissions which are not in the 2023 pro.

Like, does it still have a speech sintax?

Soundboard is sdk2, but it does not show that warning.
Only the: will not work on 2023 message. I still don’t know jow they did that. :wink:

You’re welcome Henk.
I really expect Athom to have their in-house apps ready in time, for the Pro 23 :upside_down_face:

The dev says it’s on v3 :nerd_face:. And as far as I can see it doesn’t use speech/sound/nfc/ledring.
Maybe it uses the /userdata*** folder.

I don’t see why the store marked it as incompatible.
Maybe @MarcelT has a clue :pray:
Or better, maybe @Emile has a clue :wink:

***)
Plans were to make `/userdata’ not available for apps on Pro 23. But:
