I’ve just setup Rhasspy together with my existing Home Assistant installation. I’m surprised to how easy it was, and I’ll probably contribute back some code in the future when I feel I’m missing something (for instance, good Dutch TTS in the Docker image).
Now, I see many people working on the classic commands you can handle with Google’s, Apple’s or Alexa’s voice assistents. While that’s truly cool, I’ve always been of the opinion that free software can do better than them. That’s my question: what did you do that you’re truly proud of? What did you imagine implementing, but have not yet? What do you think is still impossible?
I’ll kick off with something I did last night: I wrote a set of
slot_programs that fetch names of movies, shows and music from my Jellyfin server, and populate
$music slots. I can now say “Jarvis, speel Big Buck Bunny” and it’ll play that movie. I can say “Jarvis, speel Severed Fifth”, and it’ll shuffle the songs of that band. And I can call upon a TV show, and my TV will play the next unwatched episode. All with free software: Kodi, Jellyfin, Home Assistant, and Rhasspy. Best of all, my new best friend understands and speaks Dutch!
