I just create this post to see where we are in concern of the smartthings groovy depracation. As you probably know, Smartthings is about to release edge, a brand new platform api to bring all automation directly on the hub. Everything will be local so less delay…etc
The down side of it is that the groovy (ide and webcore) will be deprecated so most of the dth will be automatically transfered in in-hub drivers, and for the other part, it will required some driver devellopement to integrate all feature and even the device itself.
The main point here is that webcore is on groovy, wich mean that it will be deprecated too. Webcore is able to run on its own server but it will not be linked to smartthings using those smartapps anymore!
I saw that its going to support jason output and could be use to feed the new edge api but the only concern is that smartthings rely on this community to do something, they are not working on it and not sure if they ever would… So I was wondering if some developpers have already take a look at this and where we are at this point? What should be done first, what is those step to achieve something?
Sorry if it missed some informations or if some is not exact, but I just create this post on what I understood on this and the goal is to regroup all the information to help the community to devellop something. (latest date is around september 30 2022, so not a lot of time left).
