🌿 EcoDash

status-badge

EcoDash is a simple way to show your users how much your server consumes.
It's intended as a medium of transparency, that gives your users an idea about the consumption of your machine. It's not meant to be 100% accurate.

You can see it in action here: https://ecodash.massivebox.net

Requirements

  • A working HomeAssistant installation
  • An energy consumption sensor, such as a smart plug, to which your server is plugged in and connected.
  • CO2 Signal added as integration into HomeAssistant

Installation

Using Docker run:

touch config.json
docker run -v ./config.json:/app/config.json --name ecodash -p 8080:80 gitea.massivebox.net/massivebox/ecodash 

This will open the container on port 8080. Replace "8080" in the command with whatever number you want to open that specific port.

Using Docker Compose:

Create a file docker-compose.yml with the following content:

version: '3'
services:
  ecodash:
    container_name: ecodash
    image: gitea.massivebox.net/massivebox/ecodash
    ports:
      - '8080:80'
    volumes:
      - ./config.json:/app/config.json
    restart: always

Run the container with

touch config.json
docker compose up -d

This will open the container on port 8080. Replace "8080" in the file with whatever number you want to open that specific port.

Using the binary

Grab a binary from the Releases page and run it. You can use the PORT environment variable to override the default port (80).

Set up

As soon as you navigate to the container's exposed port, you will see the admin dashboard, there you will have to fill all fields to get EcoDash running.

  • HomeAssistant's base URL: the base URL which you use to access HomeAssistant on your server. It should be something like http://INTERNAL_IP_ADDRESS:8123/ or https://homeassistant.youdomain.com/.
  • HomeAssistant's API Key: Get it by going into your HomeAssistant profile settings (at http://HOMEASSISTANT-BASE-URL/profile) -> Create Long Lived Access Token (at the very bottom of the page) -> Insert a name -> Copy the string it gives you
  • Installation Date: Select the date of the first day in which your server's consumption was logged in its entirety. Users won't be able to see consumption data before this date.
  • Polled Smart Energy Summation entity ID: After your plug is added in HomeAssistant, get it in Overview -> look for an entity called like "[Name of your plug] Polledsmartenergysummation" -> Settings -> Copy the Entity ID. Check that the unit of measurement in the "Info" tab is kWh.
  • CO2 signal Grid fossil fuel percentage entity ID: Get it in Settings -> Devices and Integrations -> Add Integration -> CO2 Signal -> Get your token from the website -> CO2 signal Grid fossil fuel percentage -> Settings -> Copy the Entity ID. Check that the unit of measurement in the "Info" tab is %.
  • Admin username and password don't need to be the credentials to HomeAssistant! They are the credentials to log into the admin panel.

If you've just added your energy meter into HomeAssistant, note that it will take eight days for EcoDash to show meaningful data.

The road ahead

EcoDash is currently released as a minimum viable product, still far from completion. Here's a non-extensive, unordered list of the changes I want to make.

  • Adding support for energy returns (like solar panels)
  • Supporting hot reload, removing the need to restart EcoDash each time the settings are changed
  • Improving clarity for when data is missing
  • Making FossilFuel Percentage optional and adding other sources
  • Supporting energy consumption readings from internal sensors
  • Adding some way to change header/footer links directly from the admin panel
  • Eventually being completely HomeAssistant-independent
  • Adding Woodpecker CI
  • Organizing branches and releases better
  • Moving documentation to a wiki and expanding it
  • Extensively documenting the theming capabilities of EcoDash
  • Publishing some alternative themes
