  • Release-Notes


Our already amazing frontend just got even more amazing thanks to @andrey-git. With the new theme support you can be in control of the primary color, accent color and a whole bunch more.

You can specify themes using new configuration options under frontend.

      primary-color: "#6CA518"

Once a theme is defined, use the new frontend service frontend.set_theme to activate it. More information in the docs.

Not all parts of the user interface are themable yet. Expect improvements in future releases.

Kiosk mode

Another great new improvement for the frontend is the addition of a kiosk mode. When the frontend is viewed in kiosk mode, the tab bar will be hidden.

To activate kiosk mode, navigate to https://hass.example.com:8123/kiosk/group.living_room_view. Note that for default_view the url is just https://hass.example.com:8123/kiosk

This feature has also been brought to you by @Andrey-git! Big shout out to him for his continuous efforts to bring Home Assistant to the next level.
