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

Curious to know if you’re using the new config advised by Thomas Loven.

User DrewXT reported that it fixed the similar issue that he had posted earlier in the thread.

I don’t use the editor myself, and haven’t really seen many of the issues that some people are reporting, apart from the occasional need for a CTRL+F5 page refresh, but the new config is working well for me.

Cannot understand why - but it really helped:


Now the card-mod code is visible in the Editor.

no sorry, you’re right, it is a picture-glance.

type: picture-glance
title: Vijverpompen
image: /local/images/vijver.png
state_filter:
  'off': grayscale(72%)
entity: binary_sensor.vijverpompen
entities:
  - switch.vijverpomp_links
  - switch.vijverpomp_rechts
  - input_boolean.vijverpompen_alterneren
  - sensor.pond_buiten_sensor_calibrated_temperature
  - binary_sensor.vijverpompen
  - sensor.vijverpompen
card_mod:
  style:
    '.box div:nth-child(3)':
      'div:nth-child(1)':
        ha-icon-button:
          $:
            mwc-icon-button:
              $: |
                .mdc-icon-button {
                  {% if is_state('switch.vijverpomp_links','on') %}
                  animation: rotation 2s linear infinite, colorize 5s linear forwards 1;
                  {% endif %}
                }
                @keyframes rotation {
                  0% {
                    transform: rotate(0deg);
                  }
                  100% {
                    transform: rotate(360deg);
                  }
                }
                @keyframes colorize {
                  0% {
                    color: var(--text-color-off);
                  }
                  100% {
                    color: aquamarine;
                  }
                }
      'div:nth-child(2)':

etc

and the colorize works perfectly. cant get the other options to work, or, rephrase, can not get the template-entity-row to colorize

another (older) card to card_mod: Waze-card.GitHub - royto/waze-card: Lovelace card for showing Waze routes data my regular header card_mod doesn’t do anything:

      card_mod: &header
        style: |
          .card-header {
            background-color: var(--background-color-off);
            color: var(--text-color-off);
            padding-top: 0px;
            padding-bottom: 0px;
            margin: 0px 0px 16px 0px;
          }

when use on:

  - type: custom:waze-card
    title: Rijtijden
    card_mod: *header
    entities:

I did change .card-header to .header, because thats what inspector indicates the header to be, but still no mod effective. what should I try next?

Earlier I gave an example of template-entity-row, it did not work on your side.
Cache problem? Card-mod-themes problem?

Hello @thomasloven, I officially surrender since I stopped to understand the logic of applying CSS styles (((.
Could you help me?
I am confused about using hui-element - and probably because of the same reason I started stumbling with other cards like restriction-card, fold-entity-row
Earlier I think I followed a clear logic of using card-mod - but after a few latest updates I see some failures in my HA setup and “learning examples”.

Let’s consider row_type: section.

But first here is a usual section row, we need a red divider line:
image
CSS tree:
image
Code:

type: entities
entities:
  - type: section
    label: section 1
    card_mod:
      style: |
        .divider {
          background-color: red !important;
        }

My logic is: we are inside shadowRoot of the hui-section-row, so we must get directly to the .divider element.

Now let’s consider a section implemented by hui-element:
image
CSS tree:
image
Code:

type: entities
entities:
  - type: custom:hui-element
    row_type: section
    label: section 3 (hui-element)
    card_mod:
      style:
        hui-section-row:
          $: |
            .divider {
              background-color: orange !important;
            }

My logic is: we are inside shadowRoot of the hui-element, so we must get to the .divider element via hui-section-row$.
But the style is not applied (as it shown on the picture above).

This is working:
image
Code:

type: entities
entities:
  - type: custom:hui-element
    row_type: section
    label: section 2 (hui-element)
    card_mod:
      style:
        $: |
          .divider {
            background-color: orange !important;
          }

And I cannot understand - why do we have to use this construction?

And the simplest case - let’s style the hui-element from the entities-card level:
CSS tree:
image
Code:

type: entities
entities:
  - type: custom:hui-element
    row_type: section
    label: section 4
card_mod:
  style:
    .card-content hui-element:
        $:
          hui-section-row:
            $: |
              .divider {
                background-color: orange !important;
              }

The style is not applied:
image
And now I am completely lost.

neither… I am lost really. In no browser can I get this to show a coloring and resizing icon. It only spins :wink:
also without any theme, just the HA default theme loaded.

Hi All,

I’m trying to remove the box-shadow from a conditional mini-media-player card with no success.

Here is the config I’m using:

type: entities
title: Media
show_header_toggle: true
entities:
  - entity: switch.ff_living_room_lgtv
    icon: mdi:television
  - entity: switch.ff_living_room_apple_tv
    icon: mdi:cast-variant
  - type: conditional
    conditions:
      - entity: media_player.ff_living_room_apple_tv
        state_not: standby
    row:
      type: custom:mod-card
      card:
        type: custom:mini-media-player
        entity: media_player.ff_living_room_apple_tv
        sound_mode: icon
        tap_action: more-info
        hide:
          volume: true
          power: true
          name: true
          icon: true
          border: true
        artwork: material
        source: full
        toggle_power: false
        info: scroll
      card_mod:
        style: |
          ha-card {
            box-shadow: none;
          }

But the box shadow remains on the interface:


Does anyone have an idea what am I doing wrong?

Thanks!

not sure about the card itself, (never modded the media-player card) but if anything, you should indent 1 more, and set the card_mod under the card you want to mod… which would be the custom:mini-media-player ?

Try using “group” option.

That was it! Thanks!

nvm this, it worked after all, for reference to anyone else using the waze-card:

  - type: custom:waze-card
    title: Rijtijden
    card_mod:
      style: |
        .header {
          background-color: var(--background-color-off);
          color: var(--text-color-off);
          padding-top: 0px;
          padding-bottom: 0px;
          margin: 0px 0px 16px 0px;
        }

does the trick

my default for these listed entities in an entities card, you might want to spread the card to the full card-width?:

              card_mod:
                style: |
                  ha-card {
                    margin: 0px -16px 0px -16px;
                    box-shadow: none;
                  }

Just made the adjustment, can’t complain about the looks :slight_smile: Thanks again! Much appreciated.

now I cant figure this one out. A fold-entity-row I like the fold-down to have a background. Somehow I must have flaked, because the margins are not set correctly:

  - type: custom:fold-entity-row
    head:
      type: section
      label: Automations
    padding: 0
    entities:
      - type: custom:hui-element
        card_type: entities
        card_mod:
          style: |
            ha-card {
              box-shadow: none;
              background: url('/local/afvalwijzer/background.png');
              background-size: cover;
              margin: 0px -16px -16px -16px;
            }
        entities:
          - entity: input_boolean.trash_reminder
            secondary_info: last-changed
          - entity: input_boolean.trash_outside
            secondary_info: last-changed
          - type: divider
          - entity: automation.afval_vandaag
            name: Notify vandaag
            secondary_info: last-triggered
          - entity: automation.afval_morgen
            name: Notify morgen
            secondary_info: last-triggered

as a matter of fact, the

              background-size: cover;
              margin: 0px -16px -16px -16px;

is completely non functional, because taking it out makes no difference at all. Please have a look what I can do to make the background image use the margins I prescribe

fwiw, this does work if I dont add it under the F-e-r card:

This post is not correct now:

  1. After 2021.11.1 most of icon color styles are broken - that can be fixed, haven’t done yet.
  2. After some update of [do not know what] most styles for fold-entity-row are broken too - see this issue.

Btw I corrected ALL my posts except some which stopped working (same issue) - fold-entity-row, config-template-card, rows inside Picture elements).
Also cannot style hui-element - see this post.

o right, thats a nuisance . Hadn’t noticed before. (I am not sure my card above was correct before that tbh, so not pointing any fingers)

maybe you have a suggestion how to use a background on a T-e-r other than I did here? I mean, I merely copied from before the fold, so maybe its not the preferred way in the first place

In my example it works too:

yep. note that the background-size: cover isnt needed if you do not want to manipulate the image, but only have the full background filled.

Good remark, my JPG is larger than the row and is shrunk automatically.
