How to change the buttons in dashboard

node red v3

id like to know how you change the boring buttons in dashboard - im making an 8 channel relay switch board via usb for my overlander car ... id like to change from this ..


to something like this style -

like simple easy read vehicle buttons .. got it all working so far and works fine just want to change buttons how is it done?

You've got the current Flow?

It''s not too difficult to add an icon and change the style of the buttons but only Font Awesome v4 icons are built into Node-red.
I think the ones in your post are v5 or v6 and they are not free.

an example how to style buttons

The third button is an ui-template node where the icon is included as svg (From newer font-awesome versions you could download the svg-icon). If you use that you should tweak the ripple to make it feel like the ui-buttons.
