inspired by the meetup yesterday I started to play around with OH3 in a sandbox. First impression: GREAT!
Since my current installation has a lot of things, items and rules based on textual configuration I tried to migrate all of them into the sandbox. It worked well on the first impression. But the model is not populated (quiet clear since it was not existing in OH2
I wonder: is there a way to build up the model by text files? Or add missing information to the text-defined items so that they are considered in the model?
Thanks for all of your efforts towards OH3!
I find it helps give context. Perhaps my experience working with what I call “Swedish C doce” made me more sensitive. Fortunately I had coworkers who could assist when I needed translations of variable names, comments, or messages.
And I apologize for the horrible French accent in the demo
I am utterly incapable of focusing on losing the accent and doing something else in the same time…
Also for the quality of the screencast… Should’ve had access to FTTH for years now if it weren’t for some pathetic political/legal drama with the local authorities. I’ll tether to my phone and do it over 4G next time.
I’ll concur, the accent was not a problem for understanding and the demo was great. I was able to follow along even while driving my son to his horseback riding lessons. It helped that I was a little familiar with all you were presenting.
You can edit the home page and reorganize your cards as you like, even put them in sections. Look for the pencil icon in the corner, the little icons come automatically if you build your model correctly. But you can also be creative and change the backgrounds or even what’s displayed entirely.
If you edit the YAML you can even put some CSS styles on the background image element (like here filter: brightness(60%) to make the text stand out more), that parameter is not exposed in the config sheet, you have to do in the YAML view. But it’s still easier than photoshopping the images I found them on Google Images and couldn’t be bothered to save them locally for the screenshot.
