Compact HomeMatic/deCONZ remote automations?

Hey all,

I’m using quite a few remotes in my home - and the YaML for them can get quite exasperatingly verbose if I have to configure every possible button press/mode separately. Hence, I’m using templating to reduce the number of lines, for example:

- alias: Remote
  trigger:
    platform: event
    event_type: homematic.keypress
    event_data:
      name: "Remote-1"
  action:
    service: scene.turn_on
    data_template:
      entity_id: >
        {{
          {
            '1_PRESS_SHORT':'scene.off',
            '2_PRESS_SHORT':'scene.off',

            '3_PRESS_SHORT':'scene.low',
            '4_PRESS_SHORT':'scene.bright',
            '5_PRESS_SHORT':'scene.mid',
            '6_PRESS_SHORT':'scene.work',
            '7_PRESS_SHORT':'scene.nightlight',
            '8_PRESS_SHORT':'scene.off',

            '1_PRESS_LONG':'scene.screen_open',
            '3_PRESS_LONG':'scene.screen_open50',
            '5_PRESS_LONG':'scene.screen_open25',
            '7_PRESS_LONG':'scene.screen_closed',

            '2_PRESS_LONG':'scene.bedroom_open',
            '4_PRESS_LONG':'scene.bedroom_open50',
            '6_PRESS_LONG':'scene.bedroom_open25',
            '8_PRESS_LONG':'scene.bedroom_closed',
          }.get(trigger.event.data.channel ~ '_' ~ trigger.event.data.param) }}

That works quite nicely (similarly for deCONZ, where I just have to match on trigger.event.data.event rather than needing to concatenate), but it gets rather verbose again if I have a similar look-up table for the service_template in case I want different services and not just scene activation or only scripts.

Excerpt:

  action:
    service_template: >
      {{
        {
          1001:'scene.turn_on',
...
        }[trigger.event.data.event] }}
    data_template:
      entity_id: >
        {{
          {
            '1001':'scene.foo',
...
          }[trigger.event.data.event] }}

What I’d want is a dict that combines both the service_template and the entity_id passed to it, something like:

  action:
    template: >
      {{
        {
          1001:[ 'scene.turn_on', 'scene.foo' ],
...
        }[trigger.event.data.event]
      }}

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to achieve this goal of a more compact syntax?

Thanks for any insights!
