About Franck Nijhof

Hi there!

How nice of you to drop by and show an interest in my Patreon page ❤️

I’m Franck Nijhof and I have 30 years of programming experience, in many languages. Since 12 August 2017, I’m using this experience to work on the Home Assistant project by giving back my knowledge and time to the open source community.

You might have found me via one of  the many add-ons I’ve created for the Home Assistant operating system: Hassio. My Hassio add-ons are probably the most downloaded and used add-ons in the world.

I'm also the creator and maintainer of, a central online resource helping you to find all the Home Assistant good stuff that this world has made available to us.

I try to stream regularly on Twitch, it is not much special. I'll work on code, and you can watch me do it. In meantime, you'll have the opportunity to ask me anything in the chat. Often we'd end up doing different things, because of the conversations in the chat. Sidetracking; I love it ❤️

I really appreciate if you'd considered becoming a Patreon, supporting my development. Not only you will gain my eternal gratefulness, most tiers will also have a nice perk for you as well! Your donation will be used for paying server bills, buying test hardware for development, and Coffee (I'm an addict )

I'll start doing YouTube videos on a serious level.
Some different things I could start doing YouTube vids on:
  • Add-on creation tutorials.
  • Add-on setup and installation tutorials.
  • Home Assistant setup, tips, and tricks.
