lovelace adapter for ioBroker

With this adapter, you can build visualization for ioBroker with Home Assistant Lovelace UI.

Deutsche Dokumentation

Instance objects

In the folder instances, there are some objects that can be used to control the UI. For every browser, a new subfolder will be created with a random ID. This ID is stored in the client browser's web storage. If you delete the web storage, a new instance will be created. If you use Fully Kiosk Browser make sure the function Delete webstorage on reload is disabled.

This functionality uses browser_mod, which is installed and updated by the adapter. Do not add your own version of browser_mod as a custom card.

Configuration

There are two ways how the entities could be configured:

  • auto
  • manual

Auto

In auto mode the similar process will be applied like for google home or material adapter.

Only objects and channel will be detected that have functionand room categories defined

You can define friendly names and this will be used in entities.

Manual

The objects can be defined manually in an object tree like sql or histroy. The type of entity must be provided and optionally the name of object. With this method only simple entities, like input_number, input_text or input_boolean could be created. It may not have more than one state or attribute.

Panels

Alarm panel

ioBroker does not support such a device yet, but it can be simulated. If you create such a script:

createState(
    'alarmSimple',
    false,
    false,
    {
        "name": "alarmSimple",
        "role": "alarm",
        "type": "boolean",
        "read": true,
        "write": true,
        "desc": "Arm or disarm with code",
        "def": false,
        "custom": {
            "lovelace.0": {
                "enabled": true,
                "entity": "alarm_control_panel",
                "name": "simulateAlarm" // this is a name how the entity will be called. In this case "alarm_control_panel.simulateAlarm"
            }
        }
    },
    {
        "alarm_code": 1234 // this is a alarm code, that must be entered
    },
    function () {
        // react on changes
        on({id: 'javascript.' + instance + '.alarmSimple', change: 'any'}, function (obj) {
            console.log('Control here the real device: ' + obj.state.val);
        });
    }
);

or you just use lovelace.X.control.alarm (entity_id = alarm_control_panel.defaultAlarm) for it.

Number input

This can be done manually if input_number entity type in custom dialog is selected. This type required min and max values in common and optional step could be added. If you want to see the up and down arrows, you should set in custom mode to 'number':

common: {
    custom: {
        "lovelace.0": {
            "enabled": true,
            "entity": "input_number",
            "name": "Shutter" // this is a name how the entity will be called. In this case "alarm_control_panel.simulateAlarm"
            "mode": "number", // default presentation is slider
        }
    }
}

Select input

This can be done manually if input_select entity type in custom dialog is selected. The list of options to select from should be provided in a standard common.states object:

"common": {
    "type": "string",
    "states": {
      "1": "select 1",
      "2": "Select 2",
      "3": "select 3"
    },
    "custom": {
      "lovelace.0": {
        "enabled": true,
        "entity": "input_text",
        "name": "test_input_select"
      }
    }

in other words, there should also be select input in IoB.

Timer

Timer could be simulated by the following script:

createState(
    'timerSimple',
    false,
    false,
    {
        "name": "timerSimple",
        "role": "level.timer",
        "type": "number",
        "read": true,
        "write": true,
        "unit": "sec",
        "desc": "Start/Stop Timer",
        "def": 0,
        "custom": {
            "lovelace.0": {
                "enabled": true,
                "entity": "timer",
                "name": "simulateTimer" // this is a name how the entity will be called. In this case "timer.simulateTimer"
            }
        }
    },
    {
        "alarm_code": 1234 // this is a alarm code, that must be entered
    },
    function () {
        let interval;
        let id = 'javascript.' + instance + '.timerSimple';
        // react on changes
        on({id, change: 'any'}, function (obj) {
            // If command
            if (!obj.state.ack) {
                // If start or pause timer
                if (obj.state.val) {
                    // If pause (the same value was written)
                    if (obj.state.val === obj.oldState.val) {
                        if (interval) {
                            setState(id, state.val, true);
                            clearInterval(interval);
                            interval = null;
                        } else {
                            interval = setInterval(() => {
                                getState(id, (err, state) => {
                                    state.val--;
                                    if (state.val <= 0) {
                                        clearInterval(interval);
                                        interval = null;
                                        state.val = 0;
                                    }
                                    setState(id, state.val, true);
                                });
                            }, 1000);
                        }
                    } else {
                        interval && clearInterval(interval);
                        // update value every second
                        interval = setInterval(() => {
                            getState(id, (err, state) => {
                                state.val--;
                                if (state.val <= 0) {
                                    clearInterval(interval);
                                    interval = null;
                                    state.val = 0;
                                }
                                setState(id, state.val, true);
                            });
                        }, 1000);
                    }
                } else {
                    // stop interval
                    interval && clearInterval(interval);
                    interval = null;
                }
            }
        });
        // test timer. Disable it later
        setTimeout(() => setState(id, 20));
    }
);

Weather

Tested with yr and daswetter. One or more of the following objects must have Function=Weather and Room=Any set to be available in configuration:

  • daswetter.0.NextDays.Location_1
  • yr.0.forecast

Tested with AccuWeather driver v1.1.0 https://github.com/iobroker-community-adapters/ioBroker.accuweather. Custom Lovelace card created in support of accuweather forecast - https://github.com/algar42/IoB.lovelace.accuweather-card

Shopping list

Shopping list writes the values in form:

[
   {"summary": "Task 1", "uid": "1234222", "status": "needs_action"},
   {"summary": "Task 2", "uid": "1234223", "status": "completed"}
]

into lovelace.X.control.shopping_list state.

You can also add your own todo or shopping lists by creating manual entities with type todo.

Map

The objects must look like this one:

createState('location', '39.5681295;2.6432632', false, {
    "name": "location",
    "role": "value.gps",
    "type": "string",
    "read": true,
    "write": false,
    "desc": "Gps Coordinates"
});

or these two objects:

createState('location.longitude', 2.6432632, false, {
    "name": "location longitude",
    "role": "value.gps.longitude",
    "type": "number",
    "read": true,
    "write": false,
    "desc": "Gps Coordinates"
});
createState('location.latitude', 39.5681295, false, {
    "name": "location latitude",
    "role": "value.gps.latitude",
    "type": "number",
    "read": true,
    "write": false,
    "desc": "Gps Coordinates"
});

Picture entity

You can use static picture for it or use any state that delivers URL as a state. E.g.:

{
  "_id": "daswetter.0.NextDays.Location_1.Day_1.iconURL",
  "type": "state",
  "common": {
    "name": "Weather icon URL",
    "type": "string",
    "role": "weather.icon.forecast.0",
    "read": true,
    "write": false
  },
  "native": {}
}

or just manually set the entity type to camera and write URL into it.

Markdown

You can use bindings in markdown like in iobroker.vis.

E.g., Text Admin adapter is {a:system.adapter.admin.0.alive;a === true || a === 'true' ? ' ' : 'not '} *alive*. will produce text Admin adapter is alive in a markdown panel.

Custom cards

Upload of custom cards

To upload the custom card, write the following:

iobroker file write PATH_TO_FILE\bignumber-card.js /lovelace.0/cards/

After restart of lovelace adapter it will include all files from the cards directory automatically.

The following custom cards could be tested successfully:

I found this link https://github.com/jimz011/homeassistant as an interesting resource for custom cards.

Often the custom cards are stored on GitHub as sources and must be compiled before use. You should check the Releases menu on GitHub and try to find compiled files there. Like this one: https://github.com/kalkih/mini-graph-card/releases (Look for the file mini-graph-card-bundle.js)

Own images

The custom images (e.g., for a background) could be loaded via the same configuration dialog like the custom cards. And use it like this:

background: center / cover no-repeat url("/cards/background.jpg") fixed

or

background: center / cover no-repeat url("/local/custom_ui/background.jpg") fixed

in lovelace configuration file. Read more about the background in lovelace here.

Themes

The themes can be defined in the configuration dialog of ioBroker. Paste something like:

midnight:
  # Main colors
  primary-color: '#5294E2'                                                        # Header

  # Google colors

  google-green-500: '#39E949'

taken from here.

Icons

Use icons in form mdi:NAME, like mdi:play-network. Names can be taken from here: https://materialdesignicons.com/

Notifications

You can add notifications via sendTo functionality or by writing the state into lovelace.X.notifications.add:

sendTo('lovelace.0', 'send', {message: 'Message text', title: 'Title'}); // full version
sendTo('lovelace.0', 'send', 'Message text'); // short version

or

setState('lovelace.0.notifications.add', '{"message": "Message text", "title": "Title"}'); // full version
setState('lovelace.0.notifications.add', 'Message text'); // short version

Voice control

All commands from web interface will be written into lovelace.X.conversation state with ack=false. You can write a script that will react on request and will answer:

on({id: 'lovelace.0.conversation', ack: false, change: 'any'}, obj => {
   console.log('Question: ' + obj.state.val);
   if (obj.state.val.includes('time')) {
      setState('lovelace.0.conversation', new Date().toString(), true); // true is important. It will say, that this is answer.
   } else {
      setState('lovelace.0.conversation', 'Sorry I don\'t know, what do you want', true); // true is important. It will say, that this is answer.
   }
});

Trouble Shooting

If you messed up the YAML Code and see a blank page but still have the top menu, you can enable edit mode (if not already enabled) from the menu and then open the menu again to access the "RAW Yaml Editor" in which you see the complete YAML code and can clean it up. If that does not help, you can open the object lovelace.*.configuration in raw-editor in ioBroker and have a look there. You can also restore that object from a backup. It contains the complete configuration of your visualization.

Todo

Security must be taken from the current user and not from default_user

Development

Version

Used version of home-assistant-frontend@20231208.2 Version of Browser Mod: 2.3.0

How to build the new Lovelace version

First of all, the actual https://github.com/home-assistant/frontend (dev branch) must be manually merged into https://github.com/GermanBluefox/home-assistant-polymer.git (iob branch!).

All changes for ioBroker are marked with comment // IoB. For now (20231208.2) following files were modified:

  • build-scripts/gulp/app.js - Add new gulp task develop-iob
  • build-scripts/gulp/webpack.js - Add new gulp task webpack-dev-app
  • src/data/weather.ts - add support to display weather icon from url.
  • src/dialogs/more-info/const.ts - remove weather state & history
  • src/dialogs/more-info/ha-more-info-dialog.ts - remove entity settings button and tab
  • src/dialogs/more-info/ha-more-info-history.ts - remove show more link in history
  • src/dialogs/more-info/controls/more-info-weather.ts - add support to display weather icon from url.
  • src/dialogs/voice-command-dialog/ha-voice-command-dialog.ts - disable configuration of voice assistants
  • src/entrypoints/core.ts - modified authentication process
  • src/panels/lovelace/cards/hui-weather-forecast-card.ts - add support to display weather icon from url.
  • src/panels/lovelace/entity-rows/hui-weather-entity-row.ts - add support to display weather icon from url with auth.
  • src/panels/lovelace/hui-root.ts - added notifications and voice control
  • src/util/documentation-url.ts - for link to iobroker help instead of home assistant.
  • .gitignore - add .idea ignore
  • .husky/pre-commit - remove git commit hooks.
  • package.json - remove husky commit hook

After that checkout modified version in ./build folder. Then.

  1. go to ./build directory.
  2. git clone https://github.com/GermanBluefox/home-assistant-polymer.git it is a fork of https://github.com/home-assistant/frontend.git, but some things are modified (see the file list earlier).
  3. cd home-assistant-polymer
  4. git checkout master
  5. yarn install
  6. gulp build-app for release or gulp develop-iob for the debugging version. To build web after changes you can call webpack-dev-app for faster build, but you need to call build-app anyway after the version is ready for use.
  7. copy all files from ./build/home-assistant-polymer/hass_frontend into ./hass_frontend in this repo
  8. Run gulp rename task multiple times (until no changes happen).
  9. Update version in README.md and also in server.js the VERSION constant.
