Configuration Validation & Groups

Hi. Yesterday I’ve finally figured out why the ‘check config’ button (in configuration Validation) was endlessly spinning and never came up with a result (either an error or valid configuration.yaml). Turns out that i had a colon : instead of a dot . in customize.yaml in the group order, like this:

    group.scenes_bedroom:
      order: 4
    group:scenes_allrooms:
      order: 5
    group.people:
      order: 6  

(note the colon before the scenes_allrooms)

Of course, this was an error from my part, but the ‘check config’ goes crazy and never stops spinning. Loads of error messages. All as a result of just this simple typo.

Regards, Raymond.
