How to install this custom HACS card?

I’m brand new to HA and want to install this card: GitHub - davidn/uvindex-hourly: Dashboard Card to show Hourly UV Index provided by EPA UV Index integration

I have searched HACS (which I have already installed) but can’t find the above card.

Could someone please guide me as to how I can install this card?

Add it as a custom repository in HACs

Thank you that worked!

However I feel like an idiot. When I try to add it as a card to my dashboard, it’s not showing up in the list of cards. Any idea if I’m missing a step inbetween?

It doesn’t show up at the bottom of your card selection?

I just refreshed and it’s showing now :grin:

And now new problem: when I select to add the card, I get an empty card :frowning:

For the future, how am I supposed to know what pre-requisite integrations are required, such as this one?

I’m not sure either. 'm installing it now to test.

Yup you need it



go to Add integrations and select

Awesome help. I’ve managed to get to this step!

Is the EPA for US only? I’m in Asia and I’m not able to choose my country…

After all that… lol

I didn’t check the availability…man that sucks!!

It’s pulling data directly from the EPA so I’d say yes, US Only.

I’m using OpenUV, maybe that has Asian data too.

It does not do predictions though, just a lot of info on current levels. So no pretty graph of things to come.
