Mushroom Cards - Build a beautiful dashboard easily 🍄 (Part 1)

Didnt work

Oh, right. I think I discovered that too. You can just use a hyphen - as a placeholder.

I’m just trying to replicate this the below. Just with a temperature in front of it (and not a lock, obviously).

Buddy, this may offend you, but…

Your plan to have these fancy cards without having any coding background and/or patience is like getting your driver’s liscence and insisting to buy a ferrari: you can’t handle it! (And probably crash it the first hour).

Here’s something to start with although almost all guys shared their code with similar cards before:

And now it’s your turn to…

…read this whole thread.
…read about Horizontal Stack Card.
…read about Stack-In-Card
…read about templating
…read about card-mod.
…read this whole thread again.

We all want it all and of course rightnow but that ain’t gonna work! Just copying code of everyone is the redneck-repair-version auf coding. And as I for myself have zero coding background I learned things the hard way AND had a steep learning curve as I just read and tested everything over and over again.

That bottom row is a Mushroom Chips card. You would use a Template or Weather chip for temperature.

More here: lovelace-mushroom/chips.md at b5c361bd29e5788f3ad814d99453c50d08e741ea · piitaya/lovelace-mushroom · GitHub

To template, you’ll need to learn templating as @RodgerDodger mentioned. It’s actually not too difficult once you learn the basic structure. Pay attention to using {{ vs {% and start with other’s working templates substituting your own entities to start.

That and a couple stack-in cards to wrap around the Template and Chips card is all you would need to get the look and function in the screenshot.

Card_mod (and themes) would allow you to further customize the look as you’re seeing with some of these more recent posts.

Also, YouTube is your friend :wink:

I’m having a bit of trouble with this card:

- type: custom:mushroom-entity-card
  entity: switch.tv
  icon: mdi:lightbulb
  name: Entertainment Group
  tap_action:
    action: toggle
  style: |
     ha-card {                     
         background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, .1);
      }

It runs the switch.tv to on and everything runs as expected problem is it’s not turning it off. Here’s the entire thing. Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you!

Buddy, yes, your response was offensive. I’ve read through this thread and I’ve seen how incredibly helpful you can be; so this was a surprise. :wink: (Who said I didn’t have patience and tenacity?)

I was missing a few key details: Stack-In-Card and card-mod. I’ve read up on them and am off and running now. Thank you.

Maybe don’t assume someone’s aptitude and willingness to learn next time? Ironically, you mentioned it in your last statement. You learned things the hard way. You were me once scratching your head trying to pull stuff together. That’s all I’m doing here.

While somewhat crass, I appreciate the response nonetheless. You set me on the proper course.

From a fellow aviation enthusiast, thank you. I was missing Stack-In-Card and card-mod reading. For some reason, I had it in my head that this was all done with mushroom. Thanks again.

p.s. Mushroom and YT is what got me down this rabbit hole! Well, that and Vera alienating its original userbase and forcing them to look elsewhere. Happy to be here now.

Anyone had any luck inserting the Mushroom theme variables into a non-Mushroom theme? Specifically, I’m trying to affect font sizes. As a test, I copied all of the font-size variables from here, inserted them in my current theme (iOS) and set them really high, but it doesn’t do anything.

      mush-title-font-size: 44px
      mush-subtitle-font-size: 44px
      mush-card-primary-font-size: 44px
      mush-card-secondary-font-size: 44px
      mush-chip-font-size: 44em

EDIT: Nevermind, apparently reloading themes requires an HA restart or calling the frontend.reload_themes service. I looked under Developer Tools|YAML, but it wasn’t there (seemingly because those only reload backend things). Anyways, those font settings are working like a champ now!

Yes it is a steep learning curve… that’s why I [am not a coder either] will post my successes to share with others who may have a similiar issue. I ask may questions and about 50% go unanswered and I realize that no one is obligted to help but I do appreciate those who do without making me feel like an idiot.

My educational background is a teacher… my profession is I own my own contracting business. It took me years to learn php, js and now I’m trying to learn this. It takes some longer then others but if someone is trying helping them is and/or sharing knowledge is what furthers all of this.

I Thank you for help you’ve given me and yes people do want it right now but if not now then when?
I am in process of writing things that take a few moving pieces to make them work and I have just posted one of them today that I have a question about. If no one helps that’s okay sooner or later I’ll figure it out… or I won’t right now. Not the end of the world. But you can’t learn if you don’t at least try. So if someone is trying no matter if I think they’re over their head or not I’ll still help them if I can.
We all started somewhere.

Hang in there!! Mushroom cards are awesome. I’m just starting myself and am very happy with the results so far. I do constant searches here and on Google looking for examples… things I can try or taking ideas from what I find to better enhance my setup.

You’re doing great… keep it up!

These are the 3 bedrooms in my house. I’m happy so far with the results but I know I’ll want to make changes as soon as I get some time under my belt with this…

I think it is done… at least for now. :smiley:

As we’re all living in a world where everybody gets offended by nearly everything.

The point I wanted to state is:
Don’t want/try too much from the beginning or you maybe get frustrated because nothing works.
Climb the ladder rung by rung. Of course you can set your goal to a no handed superman tailwhip over a burning RadioShack but you’d probably better off by starting to ride without training wheels, right?

Maybe it was a stressful morning but it felt like: gimme the code now!

Keep it up, read a lot, be disappointed because trial and error sucks sometimes or your SO doesn’t give a damn about that wobbling green mushy whatever thing you handcoded in a 5h evening session but… be happy as a kid if that one tweak you almost googled back to Alta Vista now works and put on that honest little smile on your face.

TL;DR

And now back to work! Code has to be coded!

This would be awesome!

Can you change the switch state in Developer Tools or even see the state? Does the service call in Developer Tools show you something?

Do them scripts work if you fire them individually?

Looking for some advice on how best to handle this problem. Or should I be looking for other solutions with other cards?
I have been trying to get a mushroom template card to produce the results I am after and I am almost there.
Screen Shot 2022-06-11 at 13.50.47
This card changes entity value (run time) based on whether the AC is idle or cooling. My styling also changes the background color when cooling. (Will update for heating and idle later if this gets sorted.)
Now the problem: I find no way to center that value on the card. Tried various card-mod styles I have researched and none seem to apply. Example below.

If it is NOT possible to center this template card, is there another suggested card where I can still template the states I need to show?

Cheers!

          {% elif state == 'cooling' %}

Was asked to share my welcome card code by @Boostin4HP on the HA Facebook group, so here you go!

-Center weather chip navigates to the weather page
-Right temp pops up thermostat card and shows cooling/heating/idle states with colors on icon
-Google calendar card
