Great Job on the theme!
My only issue so far is the orange color of some elements.
For example:

  1. https://prnt.sc/qznt4l
  2. https://prnt.sc/qzntd7
  3. https://prnt.sc/qzntj5
    Is there a way to change it?

Hey Juan! Congrats on the work that you’ve done! I use both the Light and the Dark theme changing in Sunset/Sunrise.

Only on downside: is there anyway to change this so it can be the same color? I’ve already added those settings to my custom header. Thanks!!

As for what worked for me on Android: Just call frontend.set_theme from Developer Tools and restart the app on mobile.

where did you get your icons?

hi,

thanks for the theme :slight_smile:

i have the original ugly ones…

hey @JuanM

Thanks for the lovely theme.

I have installed it via HACS and I am using the HA android app. However I cannot see my top android notifications or the time. See image below.


Any ideas on how to resolve this?

Yes I have that too. I thing is a bug with the app.

Really nice theme, thanks.

I’ve tried using a script to switch themes between this one and the dark version, but can’t get it to work. Here’s a script I’m trying, that works with themes I’ve created in the past

script:
  google_light_theme:
    alias: Google Light Theme
    sequence:
      - service: frontend.set_theme
        data:
          name: google_light_theme

Am I doing something wrong here?

[EDIT]…never mind, I figured it out[/EDIT]

Great looking theme, thanks for that. Having trouble adding custom_header, where exactly do I add this? including resources and url? its not being accepted in configuration file or lovelace via raw configuration editor. And I cant edit the lovelace UI configuration panel because i’m using the default.

:tada: Release 1.3

Added:

  • material-background-color
  • material-secondary-background-color

Changed:

  • ha-card-border-radius value

Hi @JuanM

Did the taskbar on android where the time and other icons such as wifi, gps etc get sorted with the HA android app? I still cannot see the time as it clashes with your theme and I remember you mentioned its a bug in the HA android app?

Thanks.
