I decided I should start version controlling my Home Assistant configuration, and want to commit the unedited config first to see what changes I already made. Can I find a complete copy unedited of the config folder (and other relevant files if any) anywhere?

This official guide suggests that only the config directory should be version controlled and also a specific .gitignore. This, applied to a fresh install of Home Assistant 0.105.3, leaves five files:

  • groups.yaml, scenes.yaml and scripts.yaml, all empty
  • automations.yaml, containing only []
  • configuration.yaml, with the following contents:

# Configure a default setup of Home Assistant (frontend, api, etc)

# Uncomment this if you are using SSL/TLS, running in Docker container, etc.
# http:
#   base_url: example.duckdns.org:8123

# Text to speech
  - platform: google_translate

group: !include groups.yaml
automation: !include automations.yaml
script: !include scripts.yaml
scene: !include scenes.yaml
