Thanks for your kind words! It sounds like you are almost there as far as deploying openHAB on balena. Although there is no official balena image, you can simply push one of openHab’s docker containers (in a Dockerfile or docker-compose.yml file) to your device using
balena push via the balena CLI. (balena CLI Documentation - Balena Documentation) Here’s a very simple example that should get you started:
Save this file as docker-compose.yml and use the
balena push command from the same folder. However, keep in mind that there are many options available, so you’ll want to check out their documentation/forums for a setup that works best for your needs.
