Browser-based configuration file editor for Home Assistant.

Supports aarch64 Architecture Supports amd64 Architecture Supports armhf Architecture Supports armv7 Architecture Supports i386 Architecture

Configurator in the Home Assistant Frontend


The File editor, formerly known as Configurator, is a small web-app (you access it via web browser) that provides a filesystem-browser and text-editor to modify files on the machine the File editor is running on.

It is powered by Ace editor, which supports syntax highlighting for various code/markup languages. YAML files (the default language for Home Assistant configuration files) will be automatically checked for syntax errors while editing.


  • Web-based editor to modify your files with syntax highlighting and YAML linting.
  • Upload and download files.
  • Stage, stash and commit changes in Git repositories, create and switch between branches, push to remotes, view diffs.
  • Lists with available entities, triggers, events, conditions and services.
  • Restart Home Assistant directly with the click of a button. Reloading groups, automations, etc. can be done as well. An API password is required.
  • Direct links to Home Assistant documentation and icons.
  • Execute shell commands within the add-on container.
  • Editor settings are saved in your browser.
  • And much more…
