My Lovelace Plugins


I use the card-modder (attachment code) … and it does not show the design background

  - type: custom:card-modder
      type: custom:auto-entities
      show_empty: false
        type: entities
        title: Lights on
        show_header_toggle: false
          - domain: light
        - state: "off"
        - state: "unavailable"
      background-image: url("/local/lovelace/background/cardbackk.png")
      background-repeat: no-repeat
      background-color: rgba(50,50,50,0.3)
      background-size: 100% 68px
      border-radius: 20px
      border: solid 1px rgba(100,100,100,0.3)
      box-shadow: 3px 3px rgba(0,0,0,0.4)
      overflow: hidden 


is the extra ‘k’ supposed to be in the file name?

background-image: url("/local/lovelace/background/cardbackk.png")


Yes, this is the correct name for the background image. I use the same name for other places


Thanks @thomasloven. Working great again. I had to manually update it. It’s been over 6 hours since you posted the update, and card tracker is still showing the previous version as the latest, and wants me to install that. :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: Not sure what’s happening there.

Is card tracker playing up for anyone else?


yes I don’t see the auto-entity card in the tracker either


Updater usually runs once a day I think.

@ludeeus does a job need to be kicked off?


That would make sense based on what I see. That’s a shame. Should be able to click the check button and it checks the latest versions of each card installed.


That is correct @iantrich, Im working on getting it down to hourly


What time does it run at the moment? And what time zone?



Is it possible to change the name: and icon: of the head:?

for example, but not like this, it doesn’t work

        - type: custom:fold-entity-row
          head: sensor.tasmota_earliest_installed_version
            - name: Sonoff / Tasmota Earliest Installed Version
            - icon: mdi:alpha-s-box
            - entity: sensor.sonoff01_firmware
              name: Sonoff 01
              icon: mdi:alpha-s-box


Do it the same way you would if it was a normal entity in an entities card.


Do you mean like this, because it doesn’t work.
(So obviously not)

            - type: custom:fold-entity-row
                - entity: sensor.tasmota_earliest_installed_version
                  name: Sonoff / Tasmota Earliest Installed Version
                  icon: mdi:alpha-s-box



Since head expect only one thing, and not a list, you should remove the dash.


any feedback on those questions?

  1. Is there a way to use auto-entity card with media control or custom miniplayer cards? (ex: display all media-player.plex* playing in mini player or media control cards, works fine in entity mode)

  2. Could you show us an example of the lovelace code to combine auto-entity with fold entity? Tried a few ways but cannot make this work…

  3. Is it normal it doesn’t show up in the custom updater card?

  4. Is there a sort option for auto-entity cards?

Thanks in advance, love yours cards|


Very nice! Could we get the Lovelace yaml snippet to make the screen shot you attached? Struggling to nest this inside the folding-entity like you display.

  1. Not at this point. Adding several cards in a bunch is a bit tough, due to the layouting and stuff…
  2. I’ve added the code to the end of the readme on github (ping @jwelter, too)
  3. As discussed right between your two messages, the custom tracker updates once per day.
  4. Not yet. I’ll make sure to add one, though.


Thanks, this is great stuff!



Some people have experienced problems with custom cards that wrap other custom cards (such as putting mini-media-player in vertical-stack-in-card.

I haven’t experienced this myself, so I can’t test this, but I believe card-loader could be used as a workaround until the card developers fix it.


Thanks for that… I would never in a million years have stumbled on that code. Cheers.


Hi Thomas -

Does this support putting a attribute on the second_line display? For example battery_level for zwave devices for the battery check would be helpful?
