Customizing Basic UI with CSS

Hi all,

my favorite UI; here a small inspiration on how to hide the default navigation and to inject a custom .css to tailor it to your taste:



The .css used:

myStyle.css (1.9 KB)

The code to inject the css and to hide the navigation:

<head>
    <style>

    </style>
</head>

<body>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        
        function addStyleSheet(filename) {
        var head = window.parent.document.head
          , link = window.parent.document.createElement('link')

          link.type = 'text/css'
          link.rel = 'stylesheet'
          link.href = filename

          head.appendChild(link)
        }
        
        function addStyleString(str) {
            var node = window.parent.document.createElement('style');
            node.innerHTML = str;
            window.parent.document.head.appendChild(node);
        }

        var _headers = window.parent.document.body.getElementsByClassName("mdl-layout__header mdl-layout__header--scroll navigation navigation-home");
        var _header = _headers[0];
        _header.style.display = "none";

        // Hide the last web element of the page ...
        _webViewElements = window.parent.document.body.getElementsByClassName("mdl-form__row mdl-form__row--height-auto mdl-cell mdl-cell--12-col ");
        _lastWebViewElement = _webViewElements[_webViewElements.length - 1];
        _lastWebViewElement.style.display = "none";

        
       // Change the style for images ...
       // addStyleString('div > img { border-radius: 15px !important; height: 200px !important; width: 200px !important; position: relative; float: right; }');
       addStyleSheet("../static/css/myStyle.css")
    </script>
</body>

Add this as your last webelement to your sitemap:

        // Hide default navigation
	    Webview url="/static/HideHeader.html"

with kind regards,
Patrik

I am implementing this! Thanx :slight_smile:
Small suggestion: add in the begging of your post some small installation instructions:
(e.g.)
Download myStyle.css and place it in OPENHAB_CONF/html/ directory (e.g. /etc/openhab2/html/) (or even better in a subdir of html)
Create a new HideHeader.html file (maybe give a download method also) in the same dir
Add a web element to the sitemap

Thanks Dude. Really cool

hi Patrick,

Very nice work, do you mind sharing how did you made the power meter? can you provide more detail?

it’s really nice but the rendering is different according to the operating system or browser

did i make something wrong ?

below some pic of a sitemap and a sub Frame.

Could someone share any insights?

Windows & Chrome

Android & Android Application

Android & Chrome

Guys, do you have any ideas?

Hi!

Thanks for this great template! I like it a lot! :slight_smile:
I have one issue …
Some picture seems to be missing although i did not add one.
See the screenshots, that makes it clear :wink:
When i copy the link of that “picture” it says:
http://mini.local:8080/icon/webview?format=svg
Hope you can help.

I’m currently quite happy with this - just as an inspiration for a fresh look.

Font is Raleway from Google Fonts (regular and 900 weight italic)

Greenish Background Color is #39CCCC

This looks really nice and I did a few tests now. I placed the webview element on the very bottom of my sitemap. This works, but as soon as I navigate to a subpage and reload the page in the browser it switches back to the old style.

I tried to add more webview elements to the subpages, but somehow this doesn’t work. Any ideas?

hey, add icon=none to the webview item in your sitemap.

I have the same issue as @michaeljoos, after a reload, the CSS customization is gone on subpages. And icon=“none” makes no difference (I already had that specified in the sitemap).

Hi there

I created the CSS file and the HTML file. Inside the sitemap, I assume in each site map, i added


sitemap lights label="Lights" {
    Frame label="Exterior Lights" {
      Switch item=NorthEastDrive_Light label="North East Drive" icon="Light"
      Switch item=NorthWestDrive_Light label="North West Drive" icon="Light"
      Switch item=NorthCarPark_Light label="North Car Park" icon="Light"
      Switch item=LaundryEntrance_Light label="Laundry Entrance" icon="Light"
      Switch item=FrontDoor_Light label="Front Door" icon="Light"
      Switch item=EntranceWest_Light label="Entrance West" icon="Light"
      Switch item=WestGarden_Light label="West Garden" icon="Light"
      Switch item=East_Light label="East" icon="Light"
      Switch item=Patio_Light label="Patio" icon="Light"
}
    Frame label="Interior Lights" {
      Switch item=WallPendant_Light label="Wall Pendant" icon="Light"
      Switch item=Bird_Light label="Bird Lights" icon="Light"
      Switch item=Node11_Sw1 label="Empty 1" icon="Light"
      Switch item=Node11_Sw2 label="Empty 2" icon="Light"
}
// Hide default navigation
            Webview url="/static/ihp-theme/HideHeader.html" icon=none
}


But it gives a broken link, icon webview? Does anyone know what im doing wrong.

Thanks

Try this

Webview url="/static/HideHeader.html" icon="none"

Same :frowning:
