Custom icons


I am currently working on my dashboard and now I need two icons which hubitat doesnt offer.....I know its possible to load custom icons via a link. But then Im not local anymore unless I would set up an extra local server (which I find too much effort for two icons...)

Now I am asking myself if its possible to load those two icons (png I guess?) directly onto the hub....all those other icons must be saved there somewhere too, right?

Thanks and best regards!

If my memory serves me right images will be cached from the web. So you'd only need cloud access once. Maybe @patrick can prove my memory right or wrong?

Can we base-64 encode the icons? That would be another option, if it works.

I don't know what the max size is for a global variable :slight_smile:

Uhm....pardon? When did we get the ability to do that? I can't find a link for any forum post for something like that.

Oh wow......I guess you cant. I was mistaken. Its just the Background Image of the tile that you can change.

So its not possible to replace the icon itself with a custom one at all?

Well you can choose from a list of icons... But other then that no... People do change there icon to nothing and place an empty tile with a custom background image behind the front tile... That works, but is a hassle.

Ok thanks for clarifying....

Well then I guess I have to stick with what they offer.....unless they change that with an update.
