@Kereknjek ok… I would open a topic in the general discussion area
I would also see this module… MMM-ArduPort and how to send data from the arduino to the pi…
I also had added an http server to my arduino ESP8266 NodeMCU and provided apis for data access as another route, which keeps the devices from having to be physically wired together
A previous post showed how to change the color of the icons for the currentweather/weatherforcast modules here: colors-changed
As Far As I Know, setting colored: true changes the color of the min/max temperature listing.
@ember1205 I read somewhere that there is a utility to access the MicroSD card at a low level and potentially resurrect it. I did not dive to deeply into that as I have not had one fail and they are relatively inexpensive to replace.
I had a USB stick that was recognized at a severely diminished capacity than its actual listed capacity so thats what had me put my toe in to see if I could low level format it to the proper capacity.
It looks like microsoft pulls the plug on wunderlist in May, and wants everybody to migrate to microsoft todo.
Anyone working on microsoft todo integration with magicmirror in need of a hand?
@Fifin404 no idea. I used the image as-is included in the MagicMirror project and just centred it as the background on Raspbian.
Maybe contact @MichMich, the author of MagicMirror to see if he can provide you with a better quality version of the image.
@ezarlive it uses a fork of create-react-app under the hood so all of the same features (and ones that come out in the future) will be there. Hoping to make developing a module a perfect starter project for people interested in React.
@Vauxdvihl there are 2 different kinds of modules.
The first is a normal Alexa on your Mirror (MMM-Awesome Alexa)
The second kind of Alexa modules work as fake Wemo devices and is able to turn on of modules …(MMM-AlexaControl) but you need a echo device.
I have an old Pi 2 lying around and I’m thinking of building some sort of smart display coupled with a media centre. I’ve read through the forum and got an idea of which modules I want and how the display could look like. However, as I’m new to MagicMirror, I’d like to hear your opinions and suggestion on my ideas to see if it’s possible.
In an ideal world, the setup would be capable of following things:
show MagicMirror on my TV as a default (automatically start in the morning (CEC available), display MM using remote control or smartphone, sleep automatically after X minutes)
possibility to play music on speakers attached to the Pi from an external hd, controlled via smartphone (I don’t need Spotify or any other streaming source)
possibility to play videos on my TV from an external hd or online (youtube, TedTalks, …). Integrated into MM or in an separate application. Controllable via TV remote and/or smartphone.
There is no need to have these 3 thing run parallel. I won’t need MM when playing music or Kodi and vice versa.
Currently this is my idea:
have MagicMirror running on Raspian
have a Mopidy music server running in the background (can be controlled via smartphone)
install Kodi and switch to it when I want to watch videos (can be controlled via smartphone and TV remote)
I am wondering if my Pi can handle all this or if I need a newer model?
Is it possible to play music on the speakers (TV off) while have the videos & sound on the TV?
How would I switch from MM to Kodi? Could I control Kodi and MM with the TV remote? Are there modules to handle this (I’m thinking of Alt-Tab application switching…)?
Should I run MM in a server/kiosk mode (display in browser) or with a regular installation?
Sorry for asking so many noob questions Any help is greatly appreciated
@Kereknjek i would start slow…
use my sample, send one request, get back content. you cannot put a whole page up unless u open an iframe…
MM is called a Single Page Application… (SPA)…
in this model, each ‘module’ contributes a little content (a div’s worth) and that little bit is injected into the running view of the web page (dom=document object model) again, you can see this layout on the developers window, elements tab
u can do this on your Windows PC too with chrome, press ctrl-shift-i on any page (again to turn it off)
