Dynamic page addons #

By default the dynamic page shows the cameras. But not everyone has cameras in his HA setup. Or if you just want to show something else on the cameras page. You can use a dynamic page addon. You can only have 1 addon at the same time because it’s directly loaded inside the dynamic page view!

Dynamic page addons information #

I advise you to create a folder inside dwains-theme/addons/dynamic_page/ with the name of the addon (for example statistics) inside that folder create a file called page.yaml and inside that file your lovelace card(s) and use that path as the path for the addon.

A good example is to checkout the hello-dynamic-page addon in dwains-theme/addons/dynamic_page/hello-dynamic-page/page.yaml to re-use or inspire you.

Name Type Default Example Description
name string Required Statistics The name of the addon
icon string fas:puzzle-piece fas:chart-area The icon of the addon
path string Required dwains-theme/addons/dynamic_page/statistics/page.yaml The path to the page of the addon
data object Not required See example below Data you wanna parse to the addon

Dynamic page addons example #

This is for the config/dynamic_page.yaml file.

    - name: Hello dynamic page
      icon: fas:chart-area
      path: 'dwains-theme/addons/dynamic_page/hello-dynamic-page/page.yaml'
        some_data: 'This is some data parsed.'
        some_other_data: 'and some other data.'
