Raw UI Editor with extra features?

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if there is a way to access the Raw UI Editor file with another editor.
Like VScode or notepad ++, so i can use find/replace and stuff.

If i edit the lovelace file in storage i need to restart for changes to take effect, plus it’s encoded in json (or something)

Any way i can access the file through samba?
Or is there any good code editor chrome addons?

Thanks in advance

You don’t mention your installation method but if you have either Supervised or OS:

I use the SAMBA addon so I have access to my config files on my PC to edit them with VSCode.

I also use the VSCode addon to edit the files directly from the web interface when I am travelling.

Either would work for you.

Hey @tom_l, do you never sleep buddy? :stuck_out_tongue:

On the subject: i have all these set up already.
I want to use a capable code editor to access the same file that pops up when we go to Edit UI -> Raw configuration editor
Is that possible?

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

Oh sorry, Lovelace.

Not unless you are using YAML mode. If you are editing Lovelace in the UI mode the settings are saved as json not yaml. They are only converted when you open / save the raw edit mode.

When I need to do this I just copy / paste from the raw edit window.
