@Chemikaze not without installing another server that will map /magicmirror to some other port.
the value of docker and containers is that what happens on the inside of the container can be standardized and reused without change, while outside you can still access the app…
so, the ‘design’ is that the magicmirror container would be 8080 on the inside and 2040 (or whatever) on the outside
@alee961 said in MMM-EveryNews is not loading anything:
I can’t get MMM-EveryNews to work. I have the API key, but it just displays “AnyNews Presents”.
I assure you, the module is working. Have you checked that your api is entered correctly? Please start MM using the command npm start dev. Check the console tab in the window that opens for errors (in red) and report them here.

@killing-joke said in MM2 will not start after update:
Afterwards I performed npm update and npm restart but didn´t helped.
was a typo. It should be "Afterwards I performed npm update and npm restart and it helped.
Thank you very much.
I’m curious if an alert from another program would cause the same garbage…
Most install I’ve seen don’t have the “position” indicator in use, matter of fact, all I have in mine is this:
This makes the alert app pop up over the screen if it’s triggered.
If you have something else installed to trigger alerts manually, you could then use their instructions to test if alerts come up as designed. MMM-Remote-control is great for this (and other stuff too)
@BKeyport said in Config Error:
@evroom “convention” isn’t the right word here, perhaps. I’m almost leaning to “peer pressure” perhaps? Doing it because it seems everyone else is?
I had to read the beginning of the thread first before starting ‘name-calling’ And perhaps had to address it to the thread starter @PHAGE-GOV, for learning purposes
IMHO it would be better to use the json extension, so config.json, as it is based on JSON and stores data structures and objects in this format.
One should’t care less how coders use variables in their programs (as Sam said: “make names meaningful, use case where appropriate”, especially if you want to keep it maintainable or want to hand it over to someone else), but in case of config.js one should make at least a bit of an effort to keep it simple and understandable. Again: IMHO.
In my book this is for example a no-go:
location: "New York",
This is just waiting for an accident to happen.
What is wrong using locationName, locationId and apiId ?
Or location, location_id and api_id ?
Probably nitpicking from my side, but it hurts my eyes
I would say “make names meaningful, use case where appropriate and keep it consistent”.
I also know it it all voluntary work and it does not cost a dime (unless you donate something to the author, like I did) and therefore one is not really allowed to complain I hope some constructive criticism is allowed though. Do not want to offend anyone.
That being said, just enjoy your MagicMirror.
@mlcampbe Just found this whilst googling. The solution doesn’t work for me either. It’s a tad frustrating.
I’ve tried with both a google calendar and O365 calendar and both produce the same results (UK time displayed whereas my timezone is Paris).
I was thinking about that but the documentation indicates where something is required. I had all of the options added but that didn’t work either. I am running the Mirror Server. Would that make a difference?
@sdetweil said in Creating a text box that scrolls continuously horizontally:
which is the whole point of the scroll , yes? otherwise u just display it…
Thank you very much unfortunately I don’t have the technical skills to convert or adapt any of the existing modules to do this.
just wanted to tell you that I am using devel and https works fine
it took me some time to understand this:
and ofcourse in config also add tls: true
let me know if this turns out to be correct
as soon as I did this it started working

Thanks Sam … but those instructions are for a touchscreen – i have an IR USB overlay which enables touch on the screen ,

Step 1: Calibrate your PIR Sensor. You may use a small circuit for testing !
Step 2: Connect your PIR sensor to Pi
Step 3: Install MMM-PirSensor module
Hope it helps !
