Facebook Album Images on OpenHAB's main UI

Note: My CSS skills are close to nil. I’d appreciate any pointers to improve my layout / widget.

I upload kids and family photos into Facebook albums, and I really enjoyed showing them on Google Nest Hub display, but recently they disabled this feature.

I managed to pull my albums and photos from Facebok using GraphAPI with the help of Koala + JRuby

The photos then get displayed on OH3’s MainUI as a widget. I’m still struggling with creating a proper looking widget / layout on mainui, and my design and css skills are seriously lacking at the moment.

Problems:

  • I set a css transition ease-in-out but it isn’t working when a new url is given to the background property (by updating an openhab item). It seems to work only if the new image is already in the browser’s cache.
  • I don’t know how to make the oh-label-card's background transparent
  • Unexciting layout overall - needs improvement
  • I’d like to make the chevrons (left and right) bigger, vertically centered on the left and right of the image, but haven’t tried css positioning yet.
  • It’d be great to make it also swipable left/right
  • I have a feeling that I need to let the UI keep a list of several photos for the swipe left/right to work more smoothly
  • I’d like to put the weather icon and current temp on top of the image and when clicked, will pop up the weather widget.

So here’s my current mainui screen - far from the end result I wanted:

The photo itself it displayed as a background image of an f7-card, just so I can have the navigation arrows and caption sit on top of it. I’m sure there’s a better way. The background url is linked to an openhab item which gets updated periodically (e.g. every minute).

The image caption sits inside an oh-label-card but it has this dark background that I don’t know how to make the background transparent. The best I could do was to lower the opacity of the whole oh-label-card, but that also makes the caption faded.

I’d like to split the date, image title, and album name into three separate elements, making the title bigger, and the date smaller, etc and position them differently.

Here’s my widget yaml FWIW

Hey @JimT

It should work with your code, if the item gets updated with a new image url (if the url doens’t change the item won’t get updated) - in a quick test everything seems to works fine.


Simplest soloution would be to get rid of the ’ oh-label-card’ and using another component here. Something like this would work:

Transparent card (YAML)
- component: f7-card
  config:
    class:
      - display-flex
      - justify-content-center
      - align-items-center
    style:
      height: 60px
      background: rgba(255,255,255,.5)
      font-size: .8rem
  slots:
    default:
      - component: Label
        config:
          text: =items[props.title].state

If you want to use the button-component here, you could adjust the button-height and the iconSize prop:

Adjusting the icon size in buttons (YAML)
- component: oh-button
  config:
    action: command
    actionItem: PhotoFrame_Prev
    actionCommand: ON
    iconF7: chevron_left
    iconSize: 50
    style:
      --f7-button-height: 60px

Generally doable


Exactly - for example a concetenated string with the the url and the description text for each photo as an item state would work here and could be used in a swiper. You have to use the ‘oh-repeater’ component to make it dynamic. In the below example, the state of your item would be:

https://yourimageurl1.com/something.png,A nice image;https://yourimageurl2.com/something.png,Another one

It might be usefull to adjust the used delimeter here, as ‘,’ and ‘;’ might occur in your description text - but I’m sure you can do that easily as it seems you have some developing experience.

All images gets refreshed, if the item state string changes - so reordering your images or adding new ones would work.

                        background: rgba(255,255,255,.75)

                          config:
                            text: =items[props.image].state.split(';')[loop.images_idx].split(',')[1]

P.S. You could also adjust the chevron size and color here easily, with the f7 css-variables

--swiper-navigation-size: 50px
--swiper-navigation-color: white

Possible. You just have to add a component on top of the root component and overlaying it with a ‘oh-link’ component to trigger the popup-action. Something like this should work:

Hi @RGroll thanks for your awesome help!

Sorry for the noob questions to follow. Why do you need to put the Label component inside a f7-card component? Why not just use the component label directly:

- component: Label
  config:
    text: =items[props.title].state
    class:
      - display-flex
      - justify-content-center
      - align-items-center
    style:
      height: 60px
      background: rgba(255,255,255,.5)
      font-size: .8rem

More questions: Where can I find the documentation for (and pardon me if some of these are obvious):

  • all the possible values for the config: section (It would depend on the component, I guess?)
  • The list of various f7-xxx components, what they do
  • How different components interact with each other
  • Which components should/could be nested in which components
  • What could go in the style section (yes this is generally css, but what properties would affect specific components?)

I’d like to write a single document outlining all this stuff, mainly for my own reference / learning process, but I’ll probably put it up on github too. However if someone else has created such a reference, that would be splendid to know. At the moment, I feel like information is scattered in many places.

@RGroll Thanks for your pointers, It’s starting to take shape.

The data source is an openhab string item that contains the images in JSON array. Do you know of a way to run the JSON.parse only once in the UI, and use the returned object for the various objects (url, title, etc) ? As it is now, I am calling JSON.parse repeatedly every time I need the data.

Here’s my widget so far:

Hey @JimT

Theres no problem doing it with the label only - I just thought that was what you want. I think, that your recently posted soloution with the text including the text-shadow looks kinda nice.


Yes, every component have its own config properties. I wrote down some usefull sources some time ago, which might help you here. Especially the f7 vue-documentation is very helpful.

The most important feature to see all (most?!) of the available config parameters, is the tooltip that comes up in the editor while writing - you can trigger these tooltips by pressing CTRL+Spacebar


For all f7 components, see the above mentioned f7 vue-documentation. For everything regarding the custom oh-components have a look in the docs


Most of the mentioned f7-components in the docs have examples attached to them which gives you a rough understanding of how the structure of the components should look. IN case of the f7-swiper you can find the documentation here


I’m not sure if I understand you here - the config section is for the properties and the style section is what you say, purely css.


I’m no expert here, but I think theres no way around, running the parse multiple times in the widget.

@RGroll how can I make the widget to take up the entire content of the browser window, zero margins / padding all around. Also including hiding the top navbar, date, and “Overview”? Basically I’d like the image (plus the captions) to be the only thing displayed.

There’s a photobrowser action that might be ideal for this, however, it cannot be used stand alone as the first thing that shows up when the page is loaded.

Not possible out of the box afaik - there might be ways tricking around with the use of the backdrop layer that came up when opening a modal for example.


Thats correct

@RGroll is it possible to send a command to an openhab item when at the end of the swiper slide and the user tries to go further (e.g. to the right)? The current behaviour is the right navigation arrow is disabled.

Sadly not - there is no way currently to work with slider events like activeSlide or similar. But if it’s just about removing the navigation arrow if you reach the end of the swiper you could add watchOverflow: true to the params.

I’d like to insert new image to the end of the slides and remove the first slide. Basically making it like infinite scroll to the right and left.

If it’s just about having infinite scroll, you could use loop: true
See the swiperjs documentation for more infos.

There’s a new grid layout that makes this possible!

It’s already on my snapshot build #2270. There’s still a tiny bit of margin / padding that I can’t get rid of though.

If this fit your needs, great!
