Requesting new features#

Whilst feature requests are always welcomed, we can't guarantee they will be implemented. Assistant Relay is built as a non commercial, hobbyist solution and all features are built in free time.

Developing Assistant Relay#

Assistant Relay uses Express to power the REST API and connection to the Google Assistant SDK, and React to power the web dashboard. When a new release is issued, React is bundled and included in the Express server.
