We recommend that your download a pre-built version of this snap from The Snap Store, or at least make sure that you checkout the latest tag, as the master tag might contain faulty code during development.
$ git clone https://git.giaever.org/joachimmg/home-assistant-hacs.git
# Go into directory
$ cd ./home-assistant-hacs
# Checkout tag
$ git checkout <tag>
NOTE: You can find the latest tag with
git ls-remote --tags origin
Make sure you have snapd (see Installing snapd) and latest version of Snapcraft. Install Snapcraft with
$ sudo snap install snapcraft --classic
Or update with
$ sudo snap refresh snapcraft
2.2 With multipass
From the «home-assistant-hacs»-directory, run
Multipass will be installed and a virtual machine will boot up and build your snap. The final snap will be located in the same directory.
2.3 With LXD (required for Raspberry Pie)
Snapcraft will try to install multiplass and build the snap for you, but on Raspberry Pi it will fail. You will have to use an LXD container.
Install LXD and create a container
$ snap install lxd
$ snap lxd init
Make sure your user is a member of lxd-group
$ sudo adduser $USER lxd
Launch an Ubuntu 20.04 container instance
$ lxc launch ubuntu:20.04 home-assistant-hacs
Make sure you're in the «home-assistant-hacs»-directory and go into the shell of your newly created container
$ lxc exec -- home-assistant-hacs /bin/bash
$ SNAPCRAFT_BUILD_ENVIRONMENT=host snapcraft
when the build is complete, you'll have to exit the shell and pull the snap-file from the container. See
lxc file pull --help.
Install new built snap
$ sudo snap install ./home-assistant-hacs_<source-tag>.snap --dangerous
