Use sensor value as name

Hi,

Is it possible to show the value from a sensor as the card name?
I tried some things but can’t figure it out…

type: custom:mod-card
card_mod:
  style: |
    hui-grid-card {
      background: rgba(10,10,10,0.4);
      padding: 0px 10px 10px 10px;
      display: block;
      border-radius: 20px;
    }
card:
  type: grid
  square: false
  columns: 1
  title: Zonnepanelen
  cards:
    - type: grid
      columns: 2
      square: false
      cards:
        - type: custom:mini-graph-card
          entities:
            - entity: sensor.envoy_122244026326_inverter_482235037056
              name: '[[[ return "Some text: " + states["sensor.envoy_122244026326_inverter_482235037056"].state; ]]]'
          show:
            labels: false
            name: true
            icon: true
            points: false
          hours_to_show: 6
          points_per_hour: 5
          animate: true
          height: 150
          lower_bound: 0

Templating is only supported by a limited number of cards.

Card-Mod uses Jinja templating, not the JS-style templating you have shown, but as far as I can see the Mini Graph Card does not support templating at all. However, if you use Card Templater the templated name will work.

type: custom:mod-card
card_mod:
  style: |
    hui-grid-card {
      background: rgba(10,10,10,0.4);
      padding: 0px 10px 10px 10px;
      display: block;
      border-radius: 20px;
    }
card:
  type: grid
  square: false
  columns: 1
  title: Zonnepanelen
  cards:
    - type: grid
      columns: 2
      square: false
      cards:
        - type: 'custom:card-templater'
          card:
            type: custom:mini-graph-card
            entities:
              - entity: sensor.envoy_122244026326_inverter_482235037056
                name_template: >
                  Some text: {{states("sensor.envoy_122244026326_inverter_482235037056")}}
            show:
              labels: false
              name: true
              icon: true
              points: false
            hours_to_show: 6
            points_per_hour: 5
            animate: true
            height: 150
            lower_bound: 0

Instead of placing the whole graph card into some other card, you may easily add any templated value to any element of the many-graph-card (like a name) by card-mod.

Go to card-mod thread → 1st post → link at the bottom → mini-graph-card → smth like “how to add additional info”.

Also, I know nothing about card-templater, but a similar config-template-card causes redrawing of the whole card when a monitored entity is changed. Hope that the card-templater does not do it, but anyway I would not place the whole graph into it just to add some additional info on the card.

Thanks for the replies, I’ve managed to fix this in the template sensor as that would be the only option for me.

energie_solar_achter5_total_info:
  friendly_name: "max. {{ ((states('sensor.paneel_achter_5_max') | float )) | round(0) }}"
  value_template: "{{ ((states('sensor.envoy_122244026326_inverter_482235037071') | float )) | round(0) }}"
