[solved] Remove/hide Lovelace header? => Custom Header

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f739f78bb20>

Hi all

Is it possible to remove/hide the header completely, only for a specific dashboard?
Since sceen surface on a smaller/portable device is valuable, it’s interesting if the header could be out of sight.
I have already discovered that if you change the title with a blank space, it becomes smaller.
In my search, I have found the Custom Header project but this seems to be overkill for what I want to achieve.

Thanks a lot in advance

Not necessarily overkill, and I don’t know any other options…

It’s you’re only option, and it can do what you’re asking.

Hi guys, thanks for stepping in!

You are right, it seems to be the only option.
I’m surprised that this is not possible in the basic configuration since I guess that most people use portable devices that have smaller screens then a full-size computer.

On the other hand I wonder if the header is really necessary in a sense of functionality.
For sure the title of the Lovelace UI seems to me a waste of space and the ability to make changes to the UI could be placed somewhere else.

I am a little reluctant to make these kind of changes that seem to be kinda hacks but I tried the Custom Header customization and it’s indeed exactly what I want.

Have a nice day!
