Using Macro

Hello Group,

I have been looking at macros. I think I pretty much understand how to use them. My problem is, I want to make a file just for macros. There is nothing that really explains how to do this. I want to just make a big macro file and then call the macros back.

Thanks,

Ryan

If you mean Jinja2 macros, Home Assistant doesnā€™t support the concept of global macros.

jinja2 doesnt but home assistant could and its a good idea, one i wish it had. very much like a template but that only executes when called. you could call this from a jinja2 template, automation, etc. so many uses for this which reduces system resource consumption as templates are executing all the time or on a trigger
