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

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: horizontal-stack
title: Living Room
cards:
  - type: button
    tap_action:
      action: toggle
    entity: scene.living_room_hang
    name: Hang Scene
    icon_height: '-4px'
  - type: light
    entity: light.living_room_fireplace
    double_tap_action:
      action: toggle
    name: Fireplace
    card_mod:
      style: |
        ha-card {
        font-size: 10px;
        }
  - type: gauge
    entity: sensor.living_room_trisensor_temperature_measurement
    min: 0
    max: 100
    name: Temp
    card_mod:
      style: |
        ha-card {
        font-size: 8px;
        }
  - type: light
    entity: light.living_room_walls
    double_tap_action:
      action: toggle
    name: Walls
type: 'custom:mod-card'
style:
  hui-vertical-stack-card$: |
    .card-header {
      font-size: 10px !important;
    }
card:
  type: vertical-stack
  title: Changed font

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:
image

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:
image
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).

type: picture-elements
image: /local/images/blue.jpg
style: |
  ha-card { height: 130px !important; }

  - type: state-badge

  - type: state-badge
    entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
    style:
      top: 18%
      left: 30%
    card_mod:
      style:
        ha-state-label-badge:
          $:
            ha-label-badge:
              $:
                .badge-container: |
                  .title {
                    color: transparent;
                    line-height: 0px !important;
                  }
                  .title::before {
                    color: var(--primary-text-color);
                    content: "New name\A";
                    line-height: normal;

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?

      - type: markdown
        style: |
          ha-card {
            font-size: 20px;
            font-family: Quicksand;

            background: none;
          }

You need to shadow-root for that, I think.

How would I do that?
Nothing is working. Is the markdown card even stylable?

This is what I got with your code:


Is it what you expect?
If yes - may be you do not have card-mod installed.
If no - what is wrong?

It is working now, thanks.
The verification of the code helped me to look elsewhere.
It seemed there was issue with my hacs key for github.
Thanks for your help.

People, I really need a help with this:

Can anyone help me?

I think it’s all browser related on the PC you are viewing it on and doesn’t impact HA apart from querying HA for the data for that view…

Meanwhile trying to create sticky cards (credits to @ASNNetworks).
Here two sticky cards - top & bottom:

type: vertical-stack
cards:
  - type: glance
    style: |
      :host {
        z-index: 999;
        position: sticky;
        position: -webkit-sticky;
        top: var(--header-height);
      }
      ha-card {
        border-style: solid;
        border-radius: 15px;        
      }
    entities:
      - entity: sun.sun
      - entity: sun.sun
      - entity: sun.sun
      - entity: sun.sun
  - type: glance
    entities:

      - entity: sun.sun
      - entity: sun.sun

    style: |
      :host {
        z-index: 999;
        position: sticky;
        position: -webkit-sticky;
        bottom: 0;
      }
      ha-card {
        border-style: solid;
        border-radius: 15px;        
      }
    entities:
      - entity: sun.sun
      - entity: sun.sun
      - entity: sun.sun
      - entity: sun.sun

Note that "ha-card" styles used for the sticky card itself (borders, background etc), ":host" styles used for the subcontainer inside the main container to make it sticky (sorry if this is not true-CSS-language).
To repeat the same test - copy this code and paste it into the only card into some view.

For the top card I have to set:

        top: var(--header-height);

Works on desktop (Chrome, Win10x64, 1920x1200) and on iPhone 5S as well.

Hi
I use card mod for change color of my icons depending it state , but I have an issue.

When I toggle state with Chrome on my PC no problem, When I do it on Safari on my mac or Safari on my iphone the color don’t change until I refresh.
this is the result ( Mac, iPhone safari and HA companion for macOS):

Nice job, but I don’t see any problem with my code ?
Have you code to share me with my lights ?

This is not about lights, this is about entities.
