🔹 Card-mod - Add css styles to any lovelace card

this works here:

      style:
        ha-state-label-badge:
          $:
            ha-label-badge:
              $: |
                .label-badge .label span{
                  {% if is_state(config.entity,'home') %} color: gold;
                  {% else %} color: black;
                  {% endif %}
                }

so maybe add the ‘color:’ in the templates if/else ?

well, never mind, this works also:

      style:
        ha-state-label-badge:
          $:
            ha-label-badge:
              $: |
                .label-badge .label span{
                  color:
                  {% if is_state(config.entity,'home') %} gold;
                  {% else %} black;
                  {% endif %}
                }

No change :frowning:

sorry, crossposted in the edit of my post above. Seems this is flakey at least between browsers. Chrome and Safari don’t pickup the same stylings…

using:

      style:
        ha-state-label-badge:
          $:
            ha-label-badge:
              $: |
                .label-badge .label span{
                  color:
                  {% if is_state(config.entity,'home') %} gold;
                  {% else %} black;
                  {% endif %}
                }
          .: |
            :host {
               --label-badge-red:
              {% set zones = states.zone|map(attribute='name')|list %}
              {% if is_state(config.entity,'home') %} green;
              {% elif 'bij' in states(config.entity) %} gold;
              {% elif states(config.entity) in ['moving','driving'] or
                      states(config.entity) in zones %} mediumslateblue
              {% else %} dimgrey;
              {% endif %}
            }

myself, and Chrome wont set the .label color (the top template, which is for the label text), where Safari does that even quicker than setting the label badge.

The thing is that I try to change the color of the icon and not the text… I can change the ring around the badge but not the icon…

maybe ask @Ildar_Gabdullin and check his series of posts above ? shouldn’t it be ha-svg-icon

Styling badges: (summarized post)
Tried to summarize everything that was discussed by Mariusthvdb and me starting from this post and below.

Quick styling using “:host” for the following elements:

  • name - displayed under the badge;
  • state or icon - displayed inside the badge;
  • label - displayed in the bottom part of the badge (used for displaying a unit for “sensor” , a state for “device_tracker”);
  • background - color of the badge internal;
  • circle - color of the border.

Examples below are for:

  • binary_sensor
  • device_tracker
  • sensor
  • switch

изображение

      - entity: binary_sensor.updater
        name: 'name, icon, circle & back (:host)'
        style: |
          :host {
            color: orange;
            --label-badge-text-color: red;
            --label-badge-blue: cyan;
            --label-badge-background-color: yellow;
          }
      - entity: device_tracker.iiyama_2_ping_device_tracker
        name: 'name, icon, label, circle & back (:host)'
        style: |
          :host {
            color: orange;
            --label-badge-text-color: red;
            --label-badge-red: cyan;
            --label-badge-background-color: yellow;
            --ha-label-badge-label-color: blue;
          }
      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: 'name, state, label, circle & back (:host)'
        style: |
          :host {
            color: orange;
            --label-badge-text-color: red;
            --label-badge-red: cyan;
            --label-badge-background-color: yellow;
            --ha-label-badge-label-color: blue;
          }
      - entity: switch.test_switch
        name: 'name, state, circle & back (:host)'
        style: |
          :host {
            color: orange;
            --label-badge-text-color: red;
            --label-badge-red: cyan;
            --label-badge-background-color: yellow;
          }

Note that there is a difference between "binary_sensor" & other sensors for styling the “circle”:

  • --label-badge-blue (for "binary_sensor")
  • --label-badge-red (for others)

Now styling the same elements but using “long” navigation:
изображение

      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: name, state, label, circle & back (long)
        style:
          ha-state-label-badge:
            $: |
              ha-label-badge {
                color: orange;
                --label-badge-text-color: red;
                --label-badge-red: cyan;
                --label-badge-background-color: yellow;
                --ha-label-badge-label-color: blue;
              }

In the examples above the "--label-XXXXX" variables were used for styling.
But you can use CSS properties like "color", "background-color" etc for each element including all the elements mentioned above AND these new elements:

  • label background;
  • label border.

изображение

      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: name (long)
        style:
          ha-state-label-badge:
            $:
              ha-label-badge:
                $: |
                  .badge-container .title {
                    color: orange;
                  }
      - entity: sun.sun
        name: icon (long)
        style:
          ha-state-label-badge:
            $:
              ha-label-badge:
                $: |
                  .badge-container .label-badge .value {
                    color: red;
                  }
      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: state (long)
        style:

              ha-label-badge:
                $: |
                  .badge-container .label-badge .value {
                    color: red;
                  }        
      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: label (long)
        style:
          ha-state-label-badge:
            $:
              ha-label-badge:
                $: |
                  .badge-container .label-badge .label span {
                    color: blue;
                  }        
      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: circle (long)
        style:
          ha-state-label-badge:
            $:
              ha-label-badge:
                $: |
                  .badge-container .label-badge {
                    border-color: cyan;
                  }
      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: background (long)
        style:

                  .badge-container .label-badge {
                    background-color: yellow;
                  }
      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: label background (long)
        style:
          ha-state-label-badge:
            $:
              ha-label-badge:
                $: |
                  .badge-container .label-badge .label span {
                    background-color: magenta;
                  }
      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: label border (long)
        style:
          ha-state-label-badge:
            $:
              ha-label-badge:
                $: |
                  .badge-container .label-badge .label span {
                    border-style: solid;
                    border-color: green;
                  }

Now everything combined:
изображение

      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: combined
        style:
          ha-state-label-badge:
            $:
              ha-label-badge:
                $: |
                  .badge-container .label-badge {
                    border-color: cyan;
                    background-color: yellow;
                   }
                  .badge-container .label-badge .value {
                    color: red;
                   }
                  .badge-container .label-badge .label span {
                    border-style: solid;
                    border-color: green;
                    color: blue;
                    background-color: magenta;
                   }
                  .badge-container .title {
                    color: orange;
                  }

Also border’s style can be changed:
изображение

      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: combined (dashed border)
        style:
          ha-state-label-badge:
            $:
              ha-label-badge:
                $: |
                  .badge-container .label-badge {
                    border-style: dashed;
                    border-color: cyan;
                    background-color: yellow;
                   }
                  .badge-container .label-badge .value {
                    color: red;
                   }
                  .badge-container .label-badge .label span {
                    border-style: dashed;
                    border-color: green;
                    color: blue;
                    background-color: magenta;
                   }
                  .badge-container .title {
                    color: orange;
                  }

It is possible to combine two methods - using together "--label-XXXXX" variables and CSS properties like "color", "background-color":

изображение

      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: two methods
        style:
          ha-state-label-badge:
            $:
              ha-label-badge:
                $: |
                  .badge-container .label-badge .label span {
                    border-style: solid;
                    border-color: green;
                    color: blue;
                    background-color: magenta;
                   }
                  .badge-container .title {
                    color: orange;
                  }
              .: |
                ha-label-badge {
                  --label-badge-background-color: yellow;
                  --label-badge-text-color: red;
                  --label-badge-red: cyan;
                }

It is possible to combine ":host" & “long” navigation to get a short version:
изображение

      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: short
        style:
          ha-state-label-badge:
            $:
              ha-label-badge:
                $: |
                  .badge-container .label-badge .label span {
                    border-style: solid;
                    border-color: green;
                    color: blue;
                    background-color: magenta;
                   }
          .: |
            :host {
              color: orange;
              --label-badge-background-color: yellow;
              --label-badge-text-color: red;
              --label-badge-red: cyan;
            }

Changing a badge size:
изображение

      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: huge badge
        style: |
          :host {
            --ha-label-badge-size: 65px;
          }
      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: normal badge

Changing a name’s width:
изображение

      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: normal badge
      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: name width for a very very long name
        style: |
          :host {
            --ha-label-badge-title-width: 200px;
          }
      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: normal badge

Changing a font size:

For the name:
изображение
Note: changing a name’s width and margin-top are also required.

      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: name font for a very long name
        style:
          ha-state-label-badge:
            $:
              ha-label-badge:
                $: |
                  .badge-container .title {
                    margin-top: 11px !important;
                  }
          .: |
            :host {
              --ha-label-badge-title-font-size: 7px;
              --ha-label-badge-title-width: 48px;
            }

For the state:
изображение

      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: state font
        style:
          ha-state-label-badge:
            $:
              ha-label-badge:
                $: |
                  .badge-container .label-badge .value {
                    color: red;
                    font-size: 8px;
                  }        

For the label:
изображение

      - entity: sensor.rpi_1_netdata_net_in
        name: label font
        style:
          ha-state-label-badge:
            $:
              ha-label-badge:
                $: |
                  .badge-container .label-badge .label span {
                    color: blue;
                    font-size: 6px !important;
                  }        

Changing an icon size:
изображение

      - entity: device_tracker.iiyama_2_ping_device_tracker
        name: resized icon
        card_mod:
          style:
            ha-state-label-badge:
              $: |
                ha-label-badge ha-state-icon {
                  --mdc-icon-size: 15px;
                  color: red;
                }

Scaling a badge:
May be done by changing a "--ha-label-badge-font-size" variable’s value:
изображение

      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: scaling 1
        style: |
          :host {
            --ha-label-badge-font-size: 8px;
          }        
      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: scaling 2
        style: |
          :host {
            --ha-label-badge-font-size: 28px;
          }        

Note that the scaling does not change a name’s width.


Changing a padding around a badge:
изображение

      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: normal padding
      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: changed padding
        style: |
          :host {
            --ha-label-badge-padding: 20px;
          }        
      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: normal padding

Transparent badge:
Can be used to create a gap between other badges:
image

      - entity: sun.sun
        name: transparent
        style: |
          :host {
            color: transparent;
            --label-badge-text-color: transparent;
            --label-badge-red: transparent;
            --label-badge-background-color: transparent;
            --ha-label-badge-label-color: transparent;
            --ha-label-badge-font-size: 0px;
            --ha-label-badge-title-width: 20px;
          }

The last variable may be used to change the gap’s width.

Does my badge both have an icon and a state hidden under the icon? I mean maybe I change the color of the state but don’t see that as the state value is under the icon?

thanks!
in the old days before Lovelace we were able to also color the white background of the badge, would you know how to do that with card-mod style?

could you show us how to combine these into 1 badge style. I am a bit confused which hierarchy each has compared to the other. Say a Green unit, Yellow Text, Red icon and Blue circle :wink:

Try this:

binary_sensor:
  sensors:
    washer:
      friendly_name: "Washer"
      delay_off: 
        minutes: 5      
      icon_template: "{% if states('sensor.washing_machine_power')|float > 0 -%}
                      {{mdi:washing-machine}}
                      {%- else -%}
                      {{mdi:washing-machine-off}}
                      {%- endif %}"           
      value_template: "{% if states('sensor.washing_machine_power')|float > 0 -%}
                       {{1}}
                       {%- else -%}
                       {{0}}
                       {%- endif %}"

I just tried to change a background with no success.
I am still learning too, will try to change it later…
As for combining - wait a little)))

why not have the binary behave as it is designed, be ‘on’ when above 0 else off:

      value_template: >
        {{ states('sensor.washing_machine_power')|float > 0 }}

          }        

great!

so this shows how to style

  • the state, name and unit of a badge entity
  • background, and combined circle-border and -label of the badge itself (though label and circle border were also independent before, might take some extra effort finding a way to do that)

seems to be rather complete :wink: —> into the style book

what I dont get just yet, is why the --label-badge-background-color should be under :host in the bottom style, and under

.: |
   ha-label-badge

in the upper style?

I tried to combine :host & “Hierarchy”, no success ((
Lack of knowledge & experience…

In short non-expert way, “:host” & “ha-label-badge” are same.

What was the code that didn’t work?

since almost all options are covered in this combined style:

  - entity: sensor.calltheboss_battery_level
    style:
      ha-state-label-badge:
        $:
          ha-label-badge:
            $:
              .badge-container: |
                .title {
                  color: orange;
                }
              .:
                .badge-container .label-badge: |
                  .value {
                    color: red
                  }
                .: |
                  .badge-container .label-badge .label span {
                    color: white;
                  }
          .: |
            ha-label-badge {
              --label-badge-red: green;
              --label-badge-background-color: yellow;
            }

for me, the final question is how to style the circle (border) independently from the unit box
(now the --label-badge-red: green; for ha-label-badge)
also, given Ildars remark above, whether this is the optimal (read: shortest) yaml for the config or not :wink:

this seems to be identical in result:

  - entity: sensor.calltheboss_battery_level
    style:
      ha-state-label-badge:
        $:
          ha-label-badge:
            $:
              .badge-container: |
                .title {color: orange;}
                .value {color: red;}
                .label-badge .label span {color: white;}
          .: |
            ha-label-badge {
              --label-badge-red: green;
              --label-badge-background-color: yellow;
            }

This is really interesting.

I changed “white” to “blue” for the UNIT- and it does not work.

This works:

                  --label-badge-background-color: yellow;
                }

Here is a problem which I have not solved so far.
I can change a style for some cards.
But cannot do it for cards inside 'custom:config-template-card'.
Let’s make a simple Entities card with 2 rows:

  • a row inside 'custom:config-template-card';
  • a usual row.
    изображение
type: entities
title: config-template problem
entities:
  - type: 'custom:config-template-card'
    entities:
      - sun.sun
    row:
      entity: sun.sun
      style:
        hui-text-entity-row:
          $:
            hui-generic-entity-row: |
              .text-content {
                color: red;
              }
  - entity: sun.sun
    style: |
      :host .text-content {
        color: red;
      }

Note that for the 'custom:config-template-card' there are no variables & templates, it is just a simple example.

So, I cannot change a style for the 1st row.
Any help will be appreciated.

That’s because card-mod doesn’t work for custom cards. You could shadow-root into the row instead.
