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

To come back to my own post: There is definitely some heavy impact with card-mod. I’m not sure however where the issue itself is. I disabled card-mod and noticed how blazing fast everything was again.

I also remembered that I haven’t updated my brothers installation for some time. His Lovelace is also blazing fast. I still have card-mod 2.0.3 on his system installed. So I downgraded mine to 2.0.3 as well and noticed it was a lot faster again.

On card-mod 3.0 my Samsung tablet is completely useless, it won’t even load up the dashboard completely and freezes. Using card-mod 2.0.3 loads up everything again. This explains now why it suddenly was like this overnight (because I updated to card-mod 3.0 back then)

On more powerfull hardware (like new iPhones, Galaxy phones and desktop) I also noticed this huge improvement. On card-mod 3.0 a lot of the state changes of button-cards are delayed when toggling. Also delays occur a lot when changing tabs inside a dashboard. All that works fast again now using the latest version before 3.0 dropped.

Not sure if something drastic has changed in how 3.0 handles certain stylings (so changing variables might fix it) or that there is something else going on. I noticed on 3.0 when using a dashboard with only 4 button-cards (RomRiders), there was no performance hit. Using more button-cards made the UI a lot more sluggish. Using the exact same setup with many button-cards, is a lot faster on 2.0.3 than on 3.0 however. I’ll try to investigate further and create a ticket.

You could try around with the Performance tab in the browser devtools.

Thanks, I will investigate using that with both builds and report on Github.

Styling footer (or header):


This whole description outdated since HA 2021.12 when new "chip" buttons were presented.

Earlier I tried to understand the styling and faced some problem which was described here and here. The problem was not solved but I found a walkaround - and then decided not to worry about the problem (since there is another solution).

Resizing icons:
image

      - type: entities
        style: |
          .header-footer.footer {
            --mdc-icon-size: 50px;
            height: 50px;
          }    
        entities:
          - sun.sun
          - type: divider
        footer:
          type: buttons
          entities:
            - entity: binary_sensor.updater
            - entity: binary_sensor.updater

Note: this method allows to resize icons but do not align them with respect to the center of the card:
image

To make icons aligned, the following method must be used:

      - type: entities
        style:
          .header-footer.footer hui-buttons-header-footer$:
            hui-buttons-base$div: |
              state-badge {
                width: unset !important;
              }
          .: |
            .header-footer.footer {
              --mdc-icon-size: 50px;
              height: 50px;
            }    
        entities:
          - sun.sun
          - type: divider
        footer:
          type: buttons
          entities:
            - entity: binary_sensor.updater
            - entity: binary_sensor.updater

Colored icons:
Method #1 - works for all kind of entities including "sensor", "input_boolean", "binary_sensor", "sun.sun":
image

type: entities
card_mod:
  style:
    hui-buttons-header-footer$:
      hui-buttons-base$div: |
        state-badge {
          color: red;
        }    
entities:
  - sun.sun
  - type: divider
footer:
  type: buttons
  entities:
    - entity: sun.sun
    - entity: sun.sun
    - entity: sun.sun

Method #2 - same for some particular items:
image

type: entities
card_mod:
  style:
    hui-buttons-header-footer$:
      hui-buttons-base$div: |
        div:nth-child(1) state-badge {
          color: red;
        }    
        div:nth-child(3) state-badge {
          color: cyan;
        }    
entities:
  - sun.sun
  - type: divider
footer:
  type: buttons
  entities:
    - entity: sun.sun
    - entity: sun.sun
    - entity: sun.sun

Method #3 - changing "--paper-item-icon-color" & "--paper-item-icon-active-color" variables which define styles for binary_sensor, input_boolean, switch, sun.sun:
image

type: entities
card_mod:
  style: |
    .header-footer.footer {
      --paper-item-icon-active-color: orange;
      --paper-item-icon-color: grey;
    }    
entities:
  - sun.sun
  - type: divider
footer:
  type: buttons
  entities:
    - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
    - entity: sun.sun
    - entity: input_boolean.service_true_value

Changing a background:
image

type: entities
entities:
  - sun.sun
footer:
  type: buttons
  entities:
    - entity: sun.sun
    - entity: sun.sun
style:
  .header-footer.footer hui-buttons-header-footer:
    $: |
      hui-buttons-base {
        background-color: red;
      }

Styling an image inside a footer:
By default the footer’ height is automatically set dependingly on the image’s size:
image

type: entities
entities:
  - sun.sun
footer:
  type: picture
  image: >-
    https://www.home-assistant.io/images/lovelace/header-footer/balloons-header.png

Here is how to adjust the image’s height to the card’s height:
image

type: entities
entities:
  - sun.sun
footer:
  type: picture
  image: >-
    https://www.home-assistant.io/images/lovelace/header-footer/balloons-header.png
style:
  .header-footer.footer hui-picture-header-footer:

        height: 100%;
      }
  .: |
    .header-footer.footer {
      height: 200px;
    }

P.S. Do you know that you can use a GIF?

One thing I remembered: with card-mod 3.0 the syntax has changed. While the old syntax still works like Thomas mentioned in the changelog, I now wonder if using the old syntax could somehow cause a performance hit.

Old:

style:
  ... stuff here ...

New:

card_mod:
  style:
    ... stuff here ...

Since I use the old syntax, I figured maybe this can cause this. If it’s unknown, I’ll re-create a dashboard with some elements using the new syntax and load 3.0. And then compare that with old syntax on 3.0 and use the performance tab. A lot of people still use the old syntax, so I find it odd no-one else has mentioned or experienced this performance hit.

But could be I’m way off and the syntax has no influence (I’m not experienced enough to make that assumption). I want to prevent wasting a lot of time in testing stuff that has no effect ofcourse.

I gonna ask some probably silly questions (sorry for broken English).

I have HA on RPi 3 (docker).
My HA setup includes 3 dashboards (for HA itself, for testing things, for testing card-mod), each dashboard includes lots (~10…20) of views.
This is all edited in UI, not in yaml files (I know nothing about yaml-mode, it is in my plans).
And I use an old card-mod syntax in most cases (99%).

Every time when I work with Inspector (Chrome, Win10x64) with views with card-mod, I observe a high CPU load on my PC (~40% load for Chrome).
Sometimes I have to restart Chrome since it becomes too slow.
When I do not use Inspector - it works quite fine.
And I usually use Inspector only for testing card-mod.
Q1: Is it normal for Chrome to become so slow when using an Inspector?
If not - should I change something in Chrome’s settings?

Also, as I understand, a code for some particular view works only when I open this view in my browser.
And some part of this code works on RPi, some part - on my PC.
That means that I can have lots of views in my HA setup, and it will not make my HA slower - unless I open some very complex view. But - this is just my opinion, my knowledge about HA internal structure is very poor.
Q2: Since I have a separate dashboard with ~20 views for testing card-mod - may it slow down my HA when I do not open this dashboard?

Hi Guys,

I wonder if you can help me I am in the process of setting up my card for my air fresheners im 90% there but I can’t seem to figure out how to style the text input highlighted below:

using the following I have been able to change the font size:

--paper-input-container-shared-input-style_-_font-size: 12px;

but I can’t work out how to change the colour and justify the text to the right hand side. Any ideas?

You’ll probably need to shadow-root into it.

Styling an "input-text" row inside the Entities card:

Update (21.06.22): the post is updated with styles for MDC controls; old styles (see at the bottom of the post) do not work since 2022.3.


Colored name:
Two methods are available:
– using a CSS variable;
– using a CSS property with a detailed DOM navigation.

it3

Notes:
1.The 1st method - the name’s color changes if an input field is selected (from “ --mdc-text-field-label-ink-color” to “--mdc-theme-primary”).
2.The 2nd method - allows to change a color permanently (whether the input field is selected or not).

Colored underline:
The underline had 3 possible states:
– a default (static) state;
– the input field is hovered by a mouse;
– the input field is selected by a mouse.

There are CSS variables for each state.
In the example below:
– the 1st row is modded by using these CSS variables;
– the 2nd row is modded by changing CSS properties with a detailed DOM navigation;
– the 3rd row has transparent underlines.

Making the name hidden or more compact:
Since the row has a bigger height than other entity rows, we may want to make a row more compact.
First, we need to customize the row’s height.
Next, there are 2 options for a name & a value:
– remove the name;
– place the name and the value closer to each other.

How to disable an input_text row:
Two methods are available:
– the row is displayed as disabled;
– the row only has a read-only input field.

Also, you may remove color options to make the row clearly visible but “read-only”.

Thank you so much, was really pulling my hair out over this one.

I’m super noob but simply want to reduce the size of the fonts in my card. Have it working in some cards but can’t see to get it working in this horizontal card. In my codef i’m just applying it for now in 2 of the cards in the stack. I’d also like to control the font size of the horizontal stack card itself (the title).

Appreciate any help to get me started…

  - type: button
    tap_action:
      action: toggle

Thanks! I tried all kinds of combinations but can’t seem to get it formatted or added to my code properly.

So does this “custom:mod-card” type snippet go at the top of the card before my horizontal stack code?

In meantime i’ll spend more time understanding how the custom:mod-card fits into all of this…

card mod is extention to existing cards. it allows to style html entities inside the card. you use it by adding style attribute to every card definition.

However sometimes card-mod cannot reach some outer html objects (styling allows to apply styles to children items while some cards has outer objects unavailable to card-mod). mod-card creates a container with your card inside. This way your whole card turns into mod-card’s child element, allowing to style it from mod-card level

Some examples of using "::before", "::after" & "content":
Note: may be used with many Lovelace cards (I hope).

NOTE:
Do not forget to add a "card_mod:" keyword before "style:" (new in card-mod 3).

Prefix & suffix:
image

type: entities
entities:
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: sun.sun
    style:
      hui-generic-entity-row $: |
        .text-content.pointer:not(.info) {
          color: red;
        }
        .text-content.pointer:not(.info)::before {
          content: "XXX - ";
          color: magenta;
        }
        .text-content.pointer:not(.info)::after {
          content: " (elevation {{state_attr(config.entity,'elevation')}})";
          color: orange;
        }
  - entity: sensor.iphone_5s_battery_level
    style:
      hui-generic-entity-row: |
        .text-content {
          color: red;
        }
        .text-content::before {
          content: "Level: ";
          color: red;
        }
        .text-content::after {
          content: " ({{states('sensor.iphone_5s_battery_state')}})";
          color: magenta;
        }

+ undocumented feature for "secondary_info":
image

type: entities
entities:
  - entity: sun.sun
    secondary_info: true
    style:
      hui-generic-entity-row:
        $: |
          .info .secondary {
            color: red;
          }
          .info .secondary::before {
            content: "Elevation: ";
            color: red;
          }
          .info .secondary::after {
            content: "{{state_attr(config.entity,'elevation')}}";
            color: magenta;
          }

“Undocumented” means that you can use also "secondary_info: bla_bla_bla" instead of "secondary_info: true", it will create a "div" element anyway.

Math operations:

type: entities
entities:
  - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
    style:
      hui-generic-entity-row: |
        .text-content {
          color: red;
        }
        .text-content::before {
          content: "{{states(config.entity)|int/10}} (divided), ";
          color: magenta;
        }

Replacing a value:

For the Entities card it is enough to set a transparent color for the element keeping the state:

type: entities
entities:
  - entity: sensor.network_throughput_in_eth0_mbits
    name: Network throughput
  - entity: sensor.network_throughput_in_eth0_mbits
    name: Network throughput
    style:
      hui-generic-entity-row: |
        .text-content::after {
          content: "{{states(config.entity)|float*1024}} KBit/s";
          color: var(--primary-text-color);
        }
        .text-content {
          color: transparent;
        }

But for the Glance card I have to set a zero font-size:
image

type: glance
entities:
  - entity: sensor.network_throughput_in_eth0_mbits
    name: Network throughput
  - entity: sensor.network_throughput_in_eth0_mbits
    name: Network throughput
    style: |
      :host div:not(.name)::after {
        content: "{{states(config.entity)|float*1024}} KBit/s";
        font-size: var(--mdc-typography-body1-font-size, 1rem);
      }
      :host div:not(.name) {
        font-size: 0px;
      }

For "multiple-entity-row" it is much tricky:
image
The original value must be transparent & placed on the next line whose height must be set to 0px:

type: entities
entities:
  - type: 'custom:multiple-entity-row'
    style: |
      :host .entities-row div.entity:nth-child(1) div::before {
        color: orange;
        content: {%if is_state('sun.sun','above_horizon') -%} "Rise and shine\A" {%- else -%} "Sleep well\A" {%- endif %};
        line-height: var(--mdc-typography-body1-line-height, 1.5rem);
      }
      :host .entities-row div.entity:nth-child(1) div {
        color: transparent;
        line-height: 0px;
      }
    entity: sun.sun
    entities:
      - entity: sun.sun
        name: xxx
        styles:
          width: 60px
      - entity: sun.sun
        name: xxx
        styles:
          width: 60px
    unit: ''
    icon: ''
    toggle: false
    show_state: false
    state_header: ''
    state_color: false

For badges inside "picture-elements" card:
This trick may be useful since there is no possibility to display any text for the entity’s name (BTW, for badges displayed on the top of views this possibility is present - a “name” property).

I’m trying to use style my markdown-card with the help of card-mod.
But whatever I am trying, nothing wil change the format of the markdown-card.
What am I doing wrong?
