i set up groups and views for all my components, but those components still remain in the main home screen of hass.io how do i hide them on the main screen so i can adventuallly use that for other information. im very new to this slowly learning.
I think you need to put default_view: at the top of your groups, however doing so will then not show any sensors and switches etc that you have not defined a place for yet.
what exactly does default view do? should i add it to each one?
default_view: is the main front end view i.e. what you are seeing now, putting it before the first group will make that the default_view i.e. the front end view, therefore any sensors/switches etc that are not given a group will NOT show anymore. There are a few questions about this if you use the search at the top of the page, stick default_view in it So if you don’t define a default_view: ALL enitity_id’s are displayed in the frontend view, i.e. what you get now.
e.g. Default view with a 'Catch All' View - this explains it quite well.
the components show in the home front view. and in the groups menu. both places.
Yep currently they do, if you use default_view: they won’t - you will only see the ones that are defined in the groups you specifically setup.
ok tghank you. im currently tryint to learn automations as well, but one step at a time. thank you much.
I leave the default_view as is - since I like to know when new stuff appears and put everything else in tabs so I can quickly get a shorthand snapshot of different sensors etc.
How did you set groups to work on Hass.io? I followed the HASS instructions and I get config errors left and right.
Can you post your config? (please use code blocks after pasting select the code and hit </> when in the edit window)
I’ll have to post mine when I get home as well because as soon as I put in default_ view: it hits all sorts of config errors. I’m still stuck.
default_view: # comment out to remove default_view and uncomment the line below
name: Keiths Home
# so the frontend will only have the groups above on it
