Overview of Template possibilities¶
There are three types of templating available:
- the built-in YAML anchor & aliases
- SAK templates
- Third party card templates (decluttering card)
They all have different usage.
|Type||re-use method||what type of re-use|
|YAML built-in||re-use within YAML file only using anchors and aliases||YAML dictionaries and fields|
|SAK templates||re-use of YAML parts using global templates||toolsets, tools, derived_entity, colorstops/list, etc. About any part of the config can be templated|
|Decluttering card||re-use of card configurations using global card templates||Full card template with variables|
As the decluttering card is a card template, it can use SAK templates.
