Super Tiles Alternative

It's not quite as powerful as SuperTile and I've never used it myself (so I don't know if it supports arbitrary attributes for arbitrary device capabilities or if it's just a specific list of common things like on/off or open/closed from popular capabilities), but Snapshot is the closest thing I can think of that might do what you want.

The idea behind either is that you need to use an "attribute" template for a tile on the dashboard, then somehow get that custom attribute name to be populated with the text you want to display. Both of these apps help with that. I haven't trued Rule Machine lately, but with new-ish variable operators, if you can use it to set the value of a custom attribute (you'd probably need a custom driver with a command that could set it), you might be able to painstakingly rig together something that would also achieve a similar result, especially for just two attributes of one device.

Another alternative is to change the smallest size tile on your dashboard. For example, if you're working on a 3 wide 8 high grid, you can make that 6 x 8 and make all the tiles that need a "full" square 2x1 instead of 1x1. I'll do this if there are even a few that don't need the same amount of real estate on the screen as others. Not a "solution", just another idea to help you squeeze every mm out of your phone's screen.

You can also place two tiles on top of each other. If the normal background for the top tile is transparent, it will allow the other tile's colors to shine through. If you're just looking for a visual method for CO and Smoke, you could modify the templates for CO to make it have a blue background on alert and smoke a red. That way you'd still be able to tell the two apart.

There is Tile Master - Hubitat/Apps/Tile Master at master · bptworld/Hubitat · GitHub

Thank You

Your work sounds amazing and don’t let the few with the low IQ get you down. It only makes you closer to them :thinking::wink:.

I for one would love to see your work back up so we can all admire it and congratulate you. And respect your license requirements :+1:. It’s your hard work after all! Also, I would definitely send you a donation for a Cost-A-Lot coffee, cake and beer :beer:

NodeRed has a great dashboard tool, and can hook into Hubitat. Things like analogue gauges are a breeze. You obviously need another device to run it, but if you have a tablet always on, this could do the job. The dashboard on Hubitat is it's greatest weakness for me.

I agree. After Patrick left and dashboard development (seemingly) all but stopped, I moved all of my dashboards over to node-red.

Now node-red dashboards aren't perfect either (a number of quirks I have to manage)... But they work better for my use cases than the Hubitat dashboards did.

Tile Master has errors in the code and can not be saved.

I can see the WU update but not Super Tiles.

got it

FYI if you wanna use Tile Master load the newest version via Hubitat Package Manager. or post an issue in it's thread here. The app does work, I use it.

The child code is HUGE!!

I can not find the SuperTileDisplayDevice to set up the virtual display the child App.
