UI Widget: MiFlora/FlowerCare plant sensor

The code for the widget I demoed during my tour of the UI for the Virtual Meetup in December 2020. It provides a card for displaying temperature, humidity, luminosity measurements along with the battery status for a plant sensor. This widget can then be made the default standalone widget for the parent Group item (Equipment) representing the sensor.

Prerequisites

It will assume your items to have this naming scheme:

  • {props.item}_Temperature
  • {props.item}_Moisture
  • {props.item}_Light
  • {props.item}_Battery

{props.item} being the name of the group (Equipment) item, it’s assumed the Points will have this name as a prefix.

You can make adjustments as necessary, in particular maybe you want that background image to be hosted locally in the /static place of your instance instead of being pulled from the internet.

Hi @ysc,
your job on the new UI is amazing and force me to immediate jump to OH3 and create a new UI to replace the Habpanel !!
I like a lot your new cards based on Semantic classes, but I have a question:
Is any way to navigate to a Group using these cards?
I.e. can I set an action to an oh-button in order to navigate to an “equipment” using the card which I found in the Equipment section instead of the standard card? Same for Location ?
Thanks
Lorenzo

You mean open a popup with the group members?
Yes, that’s the group action.
You just have to set
action: group
and
actionGroupPopupItem: <the name of your group>
and that’s all. You can put it in a oh-button, oh-link and the like.

Thanks @ysc,
I mean instead to open the standard one as you wrote above, I would like to open the semantic one (the one automatically generate in the “Equipment” tab) which have a different and better Layout
Regards
Lorenzo

Then, no, sorry, these cards are generated with some special logic to rebuild your model that the other pages don’t have.

In your widget you use

background: url(https://camo.githubusercontent.com/2ebc574c32ccfd79a3781ecd48b22f5298c9d996a95279934c37cdd0cdce88b5/68747470733a2f2f7869616f6d692d6d692e636f6d2f75706c6f6164732f636b2f7869616f6d692d666c6f7765722d6d6f6e69746f722d3030312e6a7067)

How do I reference local artwork or images? I’ve got a .jpg file that currently sits in /html/graphics/Aqara-Sensor-1.jpg but I can’t get it to load.

Are there any naming conventions that need to be applied? Lower case file names, no spaces etc?

try static/graphics/Aqara-Sensor-1.jpg

Perfect, thanks
