Hey Everyone! I’m currently trying my hand at the profile switcher from user @tosti007. As of right now, I’ve loaded the module into my Magic Mirror repository. I may just be having troubles envisioning the coding/configuration aspect of it so I might just need some clarification. My goal is to have multiple modules loaded on to the Mirror and cycle between them by means of push button (I found the module I want to use and I need to set that up but for now I was going to use a timer). Has anyone successfully configured this? Or is it common for everyone to just configure their CSS Spreadsheet to accommodate more modules? Any tips are appreciated, TIA!
I have some fairly quick css transform animations (using keyframes) in one of my modules, when rendering on the Pi it’s really slow and not at all as smooth as it should be.
Is there something I can do to address this, low fps, problem or is it what it is?

It looks awfully familiar, right? So where else have you seen the concept of the magic mirror, but yet not running @MichMich framework?
the light transmission from the “back” (most mirrors have one side that has more reflection than the other) should be around 20% to get enough light through when the room the mirror is placed in is bright, you might go even higher if the mirror is out in daylight.
The higher transmission of light the more you will see of the monitor itself, even more so when the light in the room gets dimmer. The backlight of monitors will def shine through more the higher percentage you go.
I have a mirror with 3% light transmission, it works fine in a room with no daylight and just a few light sources.
big plus is that the backlight doesn’t show until the room is entirely pitch black.
But! I would suggest a mirror with 12-20% light transmission for most placements.
Panic Software recently announced that they are discontinuing StatusBoard, a simple but popular iOS app for iPads connected to a large display:
It’s pretty similar to MagicMirror2 in many respects. If you point StatusBoard to .json sources, it will format the data in nice ways. I hope someone out there looks into porting the graphs module. It would be really cool to have on MagicMirror2.
@monkepinay I’m in the middle of my build, so no results yet, only thing that is an issue, or may be an issue, is that the glass I ordered lets thru to little light, so it might be hard to see the display in daylight
My mirror is letting 3% of the light thru, I’ve later, after reading more seen that 12-20% is more optimal for magicmirror-use.
I want to load a certain url to perform an action, but I do not want to show that page. What would be the best way to implement this? It should work within the Modules.
@Wedee Wow, that is incredibly helpful! I would think this would be helpful to many people going forward, is there any way to ‘sticky’ this link so it is available to people in the future?
Thanks again for this!
Looks like twowaymirror.com is having a year-end clearance for their larger fixed-dimension Smart Mirrors.
I have no use for it but might interest a few folks here.
this is a realy cool project.
But i find nothing about how it works… After some hours, i found out its just a website running in a browser.
But why is this not explaint in the indrodution?
Or maybe a demo(mirror)website. This would be cool.
A small explanation that the mirror programm works like a website hostet on the raspberry. And i can setup and develop it on my laptop.
What you think about this?
Looks pretty good as i think!
Here is the site of the guy http://www.rafaeldymek.com/
We should invite him to work on this great project here, too!
