How can I make the widget more compact?
The margins/paddings are to much :worried:
I can’t find any guide or ressource where I can lern/understand for not programming guys how to setup the style of the used components.

As an example, take a look here

Should be easy to modify to your needs….

You may find it helpful to look through the help doc on building widgets

And in particular, if you look through the section on the OH specific widgets, you’ll probably find that much of the problem you’re having comes from not using the best components for your task. The -card components are probably not what you want here.

The docs section on css styling of pages and widgets also has some links for beginners tutorials on css.
