@Emil Hi, did you manage to get anywhere with Tuya? I have a couple of bulbs I'd like to use with flic :)

Ideas / Forum Spam
I know it's an ongoing battle, but the ideas page is over run with spam again. It's a shame because there are some really good ideas. I know that flic have small team, but it kind of feels like the forum and ideas are not being looked at.
At this time with a lot of us working from home / more flexibility it's given me time to look at my flics and do more clever things with them, which I have enjoyed doing, but there doesn't seem to be a central place / active forum to share ideas and comments with other flic users (and given the two campaigns there must be a few of us!).
I love my flics and I am going to buy some more, but it sometimes feels like a bit of a dead product when things aren't tidy (i.e. feels abandoned).
RE: Alexa and FLIC integration.
I had a similar issue, I wanted my flic buttons to trigger Alexa routines. I ended up setting up a linux VM with a we served and then use this script https://github.com/thorsten-gehrig/alexa-remote-control
On the flic button I just use a get request with all the parameters in it.
Hope that helps!
Flic Hub Hardware
I am thinking about taking the leap into the flic ecosystem. I was going to buy the hub with 3 flics as a starter set. However, I have looked through you're old blog posts and it is powered by the GR8 chip from Next Thing Co... Since they have now gone out of business what is the future of the hub, will you be revisiting the Raspberry pi now the Pi zero W could be the answer!
