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

Still, I would only want the background to show below the Automations section label, and not include it…

The bottommost row is too close to the bottom edge, hope you will live with it anyway))

getting back to this, I have found 2 things:

my custom-ui apparently stops the coloring from happening, spinning works fine
Without custom -ui Safari doesnt do the sizing, but only coloring, Chrome does both.

this is a first, custom-ui blocking card-mod from being effective… and for as far as I have been able to check, only in this template-entity-row config. now how can this be…

Marius, I had to limit using Custom UI in my setup because of the same reasons - mutual negative effect between Custom UI & card-mod…
Now I have Custom UI only for:

  • icon color’s for batteries (dependingly on charge level) - and there is no any card-mod styling for these icons in my setup;
  • entity_pictures for persons (dependingly on persons’ names);
  • friendly_names for some similar entities (dependingly on entity_ids);
  • icons for some similar input_helpers.

could you help to understand how I can change border-radius for badge
This does not work :frowning:

   badges:
      - entity: person.alex
        card_mod:
          style: |
            :host {
              --ha-label-badge-size: 100px;
              border-radius: 20%;
            }

If you really want it:

      - entity: sun.sun
        card_mod: &ref_card_mod
          style:
            ha-state-label-badge:
              $:
                ha-label-badge:
                  $: |
                    .badge-container .label-badge {
                      border-radius: 20% !important;
                     }
      - entity: sensor.cleargrass_1_co2
        name: CO2
        card_mod: *ref_card_mod

Update 27.02.23:
This approved PR is supposed to add a possibility to use a “--ha-label-badge-border-radius” variable.

Thank you Ildar.
what do this symbols mean $: $: | ?

or could you forward me to some information to read :slight_smile:

BTW I’m currently testing and trying to improve the performance of my card-mod-places.

Is anyone aware or did some tests, how it is implemented and/or better from a performance perspective, if I have e.g. only one child “bar”, which I want to mod.

foo:
  $: |
    bar { color: red }
foo$: |
    bar { color: red }

would of course both work.

But is the first way still better, because e.g. it is implemented that way, that more generic is faster and even if there is only one ‘bar’ or option b, because it is implemented that way, that it then really selects only the first and ingest there. Could be even the other way round and b is slower, because the “select first” is a whyever implemented special case and therefor perhaps more time consuming.

I fear only Thomas can aswer, but perhaps someone else was either more successfull in finding the answer in the source code than I was able or did tests or have experiences as well.

Same question (first faster, second faster, both equal) for notation/ingestion

I thought I had the card-mod figured out but then I tried to add a vertical-stack to a modded horizontal-stack and that broke my code.
Does anybody see what I am doing wrong? Slider & ApexChart should take up 75 % and the buttons the remaining 25 %.

@Ildar_Gabdullin : I tried following your examples (amazing compilation by the way, thank you!) but I must be missing some important detail.

Working but without vertical-stack

yes, I must say I am still much surprised, and this is a unique situation. I mean, most of my entities have some sort of customization, and it never has stopped the card-mods from working. I first took out my full custom-ui, so I noticed this worked, then found it was the

  customize_domain:

    automation:
      templates:
        <<: &state_color
          icon_color: >
            if (state == 'on') return 'var(--primary-color)';
            return 'steelblue';

#    binary_sensor:
#      templates:
#        <<: *state_color

template for the binary_sensor domain hindering. Ive commented that now and see the icon coloring and spinning in Safari too… (still not resizing though)

this probably means the custom-ui is either stronger than card-mod (not are how to call it) or executed later, so sticks.

If you have other examples please let me know, so I can have a look. DM if must be.
I’ve asked Thomas if he can explain why this happens.

Cards inside vertical stack are not obliged to stretch themselves vertically.
You need to try layout-card, grid card - cannot tell exactly, not used them so far (may be none of them can help, I do not know).

Also, you may try to specify heights of cards explicitly (do not like it myself since may give different results):

type: custom:layout-card

  column_widths: 70% 30%
  width: 220

Some time ago I experienced some problems, used these medicals. May be it will help you, I do not know)))

haha, no Ive tried that before for another reason (users reported slow loading of the custom-ui some time ago), but I couldn’t find any advantage tbh. So move away from that again, using the advised method for installing custom cards again.

The current issue must be in the way both customizers do their job, where custom-ui touches the backend more (hence the customized icons on more-info panels too), and card_mod is solely in the frontend. I think…

Everything is changed - HA, custom cards - every new version may hide new surprises.
Now I am a little stuck with hui-elements, lot of things depend on it in my setup.

yes, its a bit frustrating not knowing what/why… in my case, the coloring worked just fine before, and I havent changed custom-ui at all, and neither has card-mod as far as I know. So why??

just as odd as not being able to hide the 3 dots in the header menu any longer, or replace it with some replacement

for reference’s sake:

edit
ive went back up to 3.0.9 to see if changed in Card-mod could have caused this, but unfortunately that isnt the case… All I can conclude is that some HA change causes this, and which one has to be answered yet ;-(

btw, on the latest download of 3.0.13, the inspector says its .14

Thank you @Ildar_Gabdullin , that fixed the column width problem.

But I have two (hopefully now small) issues remaining:

  1. The column width is defined manually and it seems that this value is mandatory.
layout:
  column_widths: 70% 30%
  width: 220

But this results in the columns being pushed below each other depending on the amount of cards in the dashboard despite being shown correctly in editor mode.



  1. Is there a way to use % instead of px e.g. for heights?

The latter may also solve the first issue. Essentially I do not want to define the total width of the horizontal-stack, just the ratios inside it.

new challenge: add a bit of vertical spacing to entities in an embedded fold-entity-row card:

this doesnt happen on all embedded f-e-r cards oddly enough, maybe its because of the entity_pictures. and the lack of a secondary row.

  - type: entities
    title: Family tracked
    card_mod: *header_no_margin
    entities:
      - type: custom:fold-entity-row
        head:
          type: section
          label: Marijn
        padding: 0
        entities:
          - device_tracker.unifi_me
          - device_tracker.ping_iphone_me
          - device_tracker.life360_me
          - device_tracker.me_app
          - device_tracker.me
          - device_tracker.owntracks_me
          - device_tracker.calltheboss_me_bt

Still Id like to add spacing, like:


which btw is an auto-entities card expanding a group.

or, a regular entities with the exact same list:

can that be done?


wait, the secondary doesnt help:

now I definitely need a card_mod change…
btw, ofc I tried to do without the padding: 0 but thats doesnt help.

Sorry about all the confusion here.
Hui-element is supposed to be transparent to card-mod. I.e. styling hui-element should be as if styling the element inside it.

I think I’ve managed to fix that for 1.1.2, but there are lots of edge cases…

- type: entities
  entities:
    - type: section
      label: Default internal styling
      card_mod:
        style: .divider { background-color: red; }
    - type: custom:hui-element
      row_type: section
      label: Hui-element internal styling
      card_mod:
        style: .divider { background-color: green; }
- type: entities
  entities:
    - type: section
      label: Default styled from card
    - type: custom:hui-element
      row_type: section
      label: Hui-element styled from card
  card_mod:
    style:
      hui-section-row $: .divider { background-color: blue; }
      hui-element $: .divider { background-color: orange;}

Seems that you applied a style to a wrong element - rotation is not centered, there is a shift.

Cannot react on this, know nothing about card-mod-themes…

Same on my setup, strange.
