Today im going to show you how to configure the SMTP-component so that you can send e-
mails from Home Assistant! My other article shows some examples of what you can use the SMTP-component for.
The first thing that you have to do is enable the SMTP-component – start by copying the code below and add it to your configuration.yaml file.
Make sure to change sender, username, password and recipient before you save your configuration. If you use another provider than gmail you will have to change the smtp-server and port also.
Another heads-up is that if you have 2-factor authentication enabked on your Google account you’ll need to create an app password to use instead of your ordinary password – how do i create an app password?
What do you do when the Copy link address button isn’t there?
Today i’m going to show you how to retrieve the full download URL (with file extension) for any download in Google Chrome. WGET for example requires the “true” download url, with file extension in order to download the file.
I’m guessing that you’ve already know that you can press “Copy link address” on many Download buttons to retrieve the download URL, if not, know you know.
But what if you’re not seeing the “Copy link address” button, like this?
Or what if the link you get when pressing Copy link address is a redirect or just not the direct download path to the file?
Then you simply do this:
Press the Download button
Open Downloads (CTRL + J)
Right click the downloaded file, and press copy link address
Or if you want to dig down deeper, you could extract the URL using inspect-mode:
Start Google Chrome, and have your download button ready, don’t press it yet.
TL;DR: Pihole is basically a filter that your internet traffic goes through, and if ads is detected, they will get filtered out. Unfortunately not all ads will get removed (Youtube ads for example) but it does a very good job at ordinary webpages. Watch the video of a more indepth explanation.
