atomic calendar card v0.8.5

Advanced calendar card for Home Assistant with Lovelace.

This component is no longer maintained. Instead, please use this one - Atomic Calendar Revive

It's was still working for me the way it should, but due to personal reasons I'm not maintaining it anymore.

I'm happy to see that my idea of calendar component was liked by others, had many users, and I'm glad to see it's continued by marksie1988

Work in progress. If you have any problems, please use v0.8.5

Calendar card with advanced settings. It loads calendar events from Home Assistant - Google calendar component.

It contains two types of views: Events mode and Calendar mode. You can switch or select the default one.

The most important features:

  • No need to load external libraries (everything is included)
  • Custom colors and settings for different calendars, custom font sizes, colors of every text and line
  • All translations included, few of the words can be configured in settings
  • Compatible with all day and multiple day events
  • Fast switch between both modes, or make one of them default
  • Event mode:
  • Shows nearest events, one by one, day by day, time of events in a different way (dates, hours)
  • Moves today's completed events up and dim them
  • Highlights the next event, or show a progress bar
  • Shows event location link
  • Clicking on the title will open a new window with Google Calendar
  • Clicking on Location will open a window with this location on Google Maps
  • Calendar mode:
  • Show a traditional calendar (a table with 42 days) with configurable events icons like holiday, birthday
  • Quick overview of the following months
  • You can set keywords to show only important things, like birthday

If you have any suggestions about design or functionality, please let me know, open an issue or add a comment to community thread.

1. Installation

  1. You need to have the Google calendar component configured in Home Assistant.
  2. Download atomic-calendar.js file to /www directory in your Home Assistant - latest release - link not working (in development)
  3. Add this reference to your ui-lovelace.yaml file:
  - url: /local/atomic_calendar.js
    type: module
  1. Add card with options to ui-lovelace.yaml, examples below
  2. If you are upgrading, try to reload your browser cache by pressing ctrl-shift-r or shift-F5.
  3. If you want to use Calendar mode follow the guide in chapter 6, because HA is getting only 5 nearest events from Google Calendar.

3. Calendar Mode

The second mode of view - calendar mode - is to show full month calendar with simple events icons or colors, for most important, infrequent events, like holiday or birthday. You can change mode by clicking "Calendar" title, or even make it default view. To make it working correctly you need to get more events than default 5 - you need to follow instruction in chapter 6 of this Readme, and setup it for 20-30 events at least.

There are four configurable possibilities for showing events occurring any day:

  • day number color - for example "14" will be red for Valentine's Day
  • Icon1 - will show any mdi icon under date, like birthday (default: gift icon)
  • Icon2 - like above, just any other type of event (default: home icon)
  • Icon3 - like above (default: star icon)

If you want to use any calendar's events, you have to add one or more of types:

CalEventIcon1Filter: bills,waste       # only events with those words will be shown
CalEventIcon2Filter: cleaning          # only events with those words will be shown
- entity: calendar.atomic7777          # no type, it won't be shown in calendar mode
- type: holiday                        # events from this calendar will be red
  entity: calendar.calendar_holiday
- type: icon1,icon2                    # will show icon1 and icon2, but with filters configured above
  entity: calendar.home_events
- type: icon3                          # icon1 has no filters, show all events from this calendar
  entity: calendar.birthday
        - entity: calendar.calendar_holiday
          type: holiday			// events from this calendar will be red
        - entity: calendar.home_events
          type: icon2,icon3                 // will show icon2 and icon3, but with filters configured below
        - entity: calendar.birthday
          type: icon1		 	// Icon1 has no filters, show all events from this calendar
    - entity: calendar.atomic7777       // no type, it won't be shown in calendar mode
    CalEventIcon1Filter: bills,waste    // only events with those words will be shown
    CalEventIcon2Filter: cleaning       // only events with those words will be shown		

If you set filters (keywords) for any type, it will show an icon only when event summary contains one of keywords. If you don't set any filter, it will show icons for all days with any events.

You have to add max_results setting to google_calendars.yaml file:

- cal_id:
  - device_id: calendar_id
    name: Calendar_name
    max_results: 15
