A requirement on the client-side is existing support for the EventSource interface. This means that not all browsers are supported.
It's assumed that your Home Assistant installation is ready before cloning
this repository. Change to your local Home Assistant configuration folder
.homeassistant and clone this repository.
$ git clone https://github.com/fabaff/home-assistant-sse.git
