Migrating from ESPEasy

Migrating from previous ESPEasy setups is very easy. You just need to have esphomeyaml create a binary for you and then upload that in the ESPEasy web interface.

Getting Binary

First follow the guides for the different supported devices and create a configuration file. Then, generate and download the binary:

  • Using the HassIO add-on/dashboard: Just click the COMPILE button, wait for the compilation to end and press the DOWNLOAD BINARY button.

  • Using the command line: run esphomeyaml livingroom.yaml compile (replacing livingroom.yaml with your configuration file of course) and navigate to the <NODE_NAME>/.pioenvs/<NODE_NAME>/ folder. There you will find a firmware.bin file, this is the binary you will upload.

Uploading Binary

To upload the binary, navigate to the ESPEasy web interface and enter the “Tools ” section.

Press “Load” under Firmware, then select the binary you previously downloaded and upload the binary. If everything succeeds, you should now have esphomelib on your node 🎉.

Note

With esphomelib, you in most cases won’t need to worry about the available flash size, as the binary only ever includes the code that you are actually using.

Happy Hacking!
