ApexCharts card - A highly customizable graph card

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fc4174159f0>

Hi folks,

I’ve build a new card to display some graphs in Lovelace :bar_chart::chart_with_upwards_trend:. It is in its early stage and is not meant to replace the mini-graph-card at all.

It gives some new possibilities to display data in Home-Assistant and has some extensive customizability.

It is based on ApexChartsJS, and you’ll find all kind of examples of what you could build over here

Usage

  • stable releases documentation can be found here
  • beta/dev releases documentation can be found here



Please give it a try, you can build crazy stuff :slight_smile:

Roadmap

Not ordered by priority:

  • :white_check_mark: Support more types of charts (pie, radial, polar area at least)
  • :white_check_mark: Support for binary_sensors
  • :white_check_mark: Support for aggregating data with exact boundaries (ex: aggregating data with 1h could aggregate from 2:00:00am to 2:59:59am then 3:00:00am to 3:59:59 exactly, etc…)
  • :white_check_mark: Display the graph from start of day, week, month, … with support for “up to now” or until the “end of the period”
  • :white_check_mark: Support for any number of Y-axis
  • Support for logarithmic
  • :white_check_mark: Support for state mapping for non-numerical state sensors
  • :white_check_mark: Support for simple color threshold (easier to understand/write than the ones provided natively by ApexCharts)
  • :white_check_mark: Support for graph configuration templates à la button-card

Love it! Thanks.

ok so… How do I define a =header? If I set header to true it uses the first sensor name and value?
Can I change the colour of the lines?

Yes, for now. Did you want to define a title instead?

Not yet, but it’s coming, very soon :blush:

Best way for me to track the requests is to open them on Github. You’ll automatically be notified once released in beta and stable. :blush:

Yes define a title… is that an option? Like your traffic sources…

It’s not yet possible but I’ll add it. Would you mind opening the 2 feature requests on GH? I’ll work on this tomorrow. It should be released by the end the day for me tomorrow (CET timezone)

Waiting for colors support. :slightly_smiling_face:

Nicely done. Can’t wait for the time line boundaries. Should help in troubleshooting my update problems on the OS from 5.2 to 5.10. I should be able to see what is going on when my Pi4 freezes.

Installed.
I am missing the ability to change line width,
I’ll keep testing!

Here is an example that might help:

  - type: custom:apexcharts-card
    header:
      show: false
    series: 
    - entity: sensor.backyard_govee_temperature
    - entity: sensor.backyard_sensor_temperature
    - entity: sensor.backyard_atc_mi_temperature
      curve: straight
    update_interval: 30s
    hours_to_show: 24
    cache: true
    apex_config:
      stroke: {
          show: true,
          width: 1
      }

You can change the line width. See just above

type: custom:apexchart-card
series:
  - ...
apex_config:
  stroke:
    width: 2  # Change to your liking

Just for general knowledge:
This:

    apex_config:
      stroke: {
          show: true,
          width: 1
      }

Is the same as this:

    apex_config:
      stroke:
        show: true
        width: 1

It woks. Now is there a simple way to load a specific time range? I.E yesterday at 3PM to 5PM. What I see for the current code is a offset from the current time (which is always changing as the time is changing). Not sure how many people need this but there are times I want to see my history at a known time.

For yesterday 3pm to 5pm you can do it this way:

graph_span: 2h # 2h from 3pm = 5pm
span:
  start: day # from midnight this morning
  offset: -9h # from midnight this morning minus 9h = 3pm yesterday

Got it. Thanks.
