Friendly_name_template for switches

I changed components/template/switch.py to implement a friendly_name_template for switches, i.e. the friendly name is taken from the template.
If this is of general interest, I can share my code.

how about creating a pull request on GitHub? :wink:

  1. I don’t know if anybody is interested
  2. I don’ know what a pull request is and I don’t want to make people angry because I don’t know the rules.

So if anybody is interested I post it here. But I don’t fight or start a battle or discussion.

yes, that would be really nice, been looking for friendly_name_templates on all template entities tbh.

Please share?
