config folder of HA. Doesn’t matter which way this is, but you need to be able to upload and change files in your config. If you’re running

This integration is still under heavy development and might cause breaking changes
For the pop-up cards to work it's required to install the Custom Integration called
browser-mod. This can be done in HACS and search under Integration on
browser-mod. Optionally you can install Frontend modules, but the integration also has a checkmark to include and configure them for you.
To find this Integration on HACS we first need to add the UI Lovelace Minimalist (ULM) repository to Custom Reposistories.
- Go to HACS
- Click on Integrations
- Search for "UI Lovelace Minimalist" and click "Download this Repository with HACS"
- Select the version (will auto select latest)

- Wait until Home assistant is restarted and Continue to "Install Integration".
If you can't or don't like to use HACS, you still have the possibility to use this fantastic "theme"
In order to function correctly, the UI Lovelace Mininmalist "Theme" requires some additional integrations and lovelace resources. While we can install most of these for you during the installation via HACS, you will also have to install and configuring them manually in advance for a manual installation.
