Guess what, lovers of Home Assistant? Brace yourselves because Home Assistant 2021.11 is just around the corner, and it's bringing along a shiny new toy—an icon picker for its Dashboard. Hats off to the coding wizard, Paul Bottein, better known in the GitHub world as piitaya for this game-changing pull request.
While it may sound like a small tweak, but trust me, in the grand scheme of things, it's a big deal. Why, you ask? Well, it just made configuring Home Assistant a whole lot simpler. Say goodbye to the days of having to shuffle off to the Material Design Icons website and rack your brain for the perfect icon. Now, everything is at your fingertips, right within the comfort of the Home Assistant dashboard.
Looking for an icon? Just type in the related word and voilà! A list of suggestions will magically appear. Sure, having the option to browse through all the icons would have been the cherry on top, especially when you want a little visual exploration. But hey, it's a pretty solid start. This handy icon picker will be at your disposal once Home Assistant 2021.11 makes its grand entrance next week.
