Before moving to Hubitat I was using Smartthings and an app called "Holiday Color Lights". It was hosted on Github and developed by "ygelfand". I cannot find a current copy of it on Github so it may have been pulled. I do have a copy of it and successfully have it running on HE.
My question and request is to find someone that could either modify the code for me with some changes. For the most part, the current code works for my needs but I really wish the app had a configuration page for each Holiday. For example, I would like to see the following abilities added:
- Add / edit / delete holidays
- Even better would be if holidays could be updated via a public available API
- Edit the start "days before holiday" and end "days after the holiday as a per holiday setting. Currently this is a global setting.
- Edit the color cycle per holiday from a configuration dialog
I am willing to replace this app with another one with similar capabilities. What I really like about this app is that it is simple and reliable and easy works with any color changing bulb in the system. Usually I keep my outdoor Philips Hue bulbs set to warm white turning on at sunset and off at a set time. For various holidays, they cycle set colors for that holiday starting with days before holiday until days after holiday with set values. For some holidays, I would enable the colors 2 days before running until 1 day after while others like Christmas have a longer season.
I have come across similar capabilities in a WebCore script but at least on Smartthings found it incredibly painful to manage.
Any and all help and/or suggestions are appreciated.
