What is Huginn?
Huginn is a system for building agents that perform automated tasks for you online. They can read the web, watch for events, and take actions on your behalf. Huginn's Agents create and consume events, propagating them along a directed graph. Think of it as a hackable version of IFTTT or Zapier on your own server. You always know who has your data. You do.

Said about Huginn as an alternative
It is open source and self hosted, hence YOU retain ownnership of your accounts and data flows.
more advanced and self hosted
Poorly documented and very difficult to get anything working beyond the most basic web scrapping. Even something like making a POST request is not directly supported by the web scrapper.
Also difficult to setup - there's a Docker image but if you want to setup SMTP, etc. you'll need to use env variables that don't seem to be documented anywhere. Probably the best is to not use Docker but then of course you have to manually install everything.
Basically, if you have a lot of time to spare and enjoy spending days configuring servers and trying to make sense of nonsensical errors, that might work for you, but otherwise give it a pass.
Agreed that the documentation is severely lacking and there is no official support forum.

Dependencies seem to be stale. Following the getting started guide does not work. Seems to be discontinued.
To see its under active development is as easy as checking the GitHub repo. Bundled examples worked perfectly for me.
