A highly detailed blueprint.

The introduction of Blueprints to Home Assistant has been nothing short of transformative. With this feature, users can now effortlessly create, exchange, and implement pre-existing automations, streamlining their experience and saving precious time. Blueprints not only cater to seasoned users but also provide a warm welcome to newcomers, regardless of their expertise.

Paving the way for the next generation of Blueprints

Until now, Blueprints have been confined to automations. However, change is afoot, thanks to the dedication of Franck Nijhof, better known as “frenck”, who is currently laying the groundwork for Home Assistant users to share scripts using Blueprints. This expansion is set to further elevate the platform's practicality and ease of use.

Script Blueprints: Coming, but patience is required

The precise timeline for the incorporation of script Blueprints into Home Assistant remains shrouded in mystery. Regrettably, the feature will not make its debut in the imminent Home Assistant Core version 2021.5. For now, the priority lies in building the foundation for this functionality, which has already been merged and will be incorporated into the upcoming version.

Many Home Assistant enthusiasts, including yours truly, wholeheartedly agree with frenck's sentiment, as stated in his pull request: extending Blueprint support to scripts is a natural progression. While Home Assistant revolves around automation, scripts play a vital role in enabling users to tailor their experience to their individual preferences.
