Share your Dashboard




Only been doing this for a week and I started to stress over having half a dozen pistons going!


Now I need to work on the dashboard!


You should not use a mjpg with refresh - remove the refresh. The format is

[img params src=http://url-goes-here|]

just the same way as it goes for any other formatting [format|text] just that the text is missing.


That should have been obvious even before I tried it. Fortunately it took me only a moment after I posted to figure that out. But then it took me a couple of minutes longer to realize I needed to change the tile size in categories. I’m clearly a little slow today. :upside_down_face:


I’m quite new to ST, decided to try it out a few weeks ago and did not care for it much in the beginning, UNTIL i found webCoRE :smile: That was really what sold me… Anyhow here’s my first attempt with pistons. I’m trying to keep them organized by splitting them up in Automations, Routines and Scenes. I love being able to invoke the same scene in many different ways, everything from presence, harmony remote, sunset or button clicks…

Thank so much for all the work that’s going into this, both developer work and all the contribution on the forum.


i am still working through cleaning up everything and stop using the text style dashboard. i want to be able to see anything that i want to know with a single glance at the browser dashboard tab. and eventually have a version of that on a permanently placed ipad in the kitchen or something. that’s what started the evolution to this version of the dashboard. it would help get this done faster if i didnt keep going back to the old stuff and redoing them in a new way every so often. :-/


Every so often, or every few minutes? I swear, the tinkering never ends!! :fearful:


LOL. every few minutes.


@bangali would you mind sharing your “Temperature” piston?
Seeing it on your dashboard, I like it, can i try yours instead of starting from scratch?

Temperature tiles piston

sure, happy to but have to clean it up to be a standalone. like it uses a global variable set by another piston to mute the colors display accordingly to the time of day. didnt want a row of bright green icons staring back at me when its 11pm at night. there are a couple of other things like that in that piston. i will cleanup and post as an example.


Could someone show an example piston with the gauges? Like @Nezmo Clothes Washer?

Also, how do you add the colored icons on the tiles? I have seen how they work with the icons from but am curious how to add those colored/animated ones.


You should be able to import the piston I posted here Share your Dashboard.

The colored icons are emojis. Be aware that emojis look different across platforms.


Thanks @Nezmo! I’ll definitely give that a shot.

I didn’t realize those were all emoji’s that seems easy enough!


Note, if your energy reporting device does not report voltage (I don’t think all do) you may have to make some minor changes for that.


Thanks! It seems to be working its not running at the moment so I’ll have to watch for them all to change.

Sorry, another question with the emoji’s, how do you format them in the in piston? The FA ones I currently have are {’:fa-bolt:’" On"}, how do you add an emoji instead of say the bolt i have? Sorry for the ignorant questions.


What platform are you using?

Mobile? Use the emoji keyboard

Windows? Use the on screen keyboard

Mac? I’m not familiar with that one.


PC Windows.


I’d also like to use this if you don’t mind sharing. Even a version that’s not quite 100% would be very helpful. Thanks!


sure, please feel free … posted here:


How are you getting the information between the piston name and the timer?
