Hey everyone - i’m looking to run https://revealjs.com/demo/ on MM, in a web browser module. I have a basic MM setup but otherwise a newbie 🙂
The idea would be to able to able navigate through the slides with an IR remote (either mimicking keystrokes, or issuing api calls to the revealjs server.
Does this seem realistic to do? Any pointers on implementation would be very helpful!
As others have explained, MagicMirror won’t do what you want.
To solve your need,
There are presentation wireless “mice” which look like tv remotes which can do what you want, if you are using a computer to display your website on a screen.
you could turn each slide of your presentation into a graphic image and load them on a usb stick. Most “smart” tv’s have the ability to display images from a usb stick and will allow you to adjust the settings so you can change pages by clicking on your tv’s remote control.
@donaldbathe - The short answer is: You cannot. The power socket for your electric shaver is not a mirror issue. I suggest you look for a local home electrician who can install a properly grounded outlet below your bathroom mirror. Rates vary, so be sure to shop around.
Hi, I have code an magic TV with MagicMirror app (v2. 13, never update it!) for my company.
It display some information (read directly from database,) and slide show photos, internal document.
It’s just an rpi3B+ used in local (for technician hall) with an 27’ screen computer and remotely (server mode for hall of the company) with a 100’ smart tv
Works fine since ~2y now
I was at microcenter and bought a pimoroni inky touchscreen just to play with.
I’ve been fighting with teh MMM-flick-gesture module trying to add the airwheel gestures and learned I need to learn a lot more…
Since the pisupply Flick would be hanging below the mirror anyway… I’m thinking the inky display might be a better thing to use instead. And… it could display some things when the mirror is blacked out, and when the mirror is displaying, it could show instructions on how to use it to control the mirror pages and module.
I think I might be going down a rabbit hole.
I’m wondering if anyone has setup an inky display magic mirror. Have you?
@mayfield There are a few places to check the logs. If you start your mirror using pm2 then you can just run pm2 logs --lines 50 and see if there are any errors. You can change the line numbers to get more lines. You can also check the developers window (shift + ctrl + i) and see if there are any errors there.
If you start your mirror using npm then you can check the terminal where you started the mirror from for any errors.
For modules that are not working the issue is problem deprecated dependencies. See below post on how to fix these.
