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!
Thank you, mate. I’m glad that was helpful. Enjoy the process and the learning. It really is a lot of fun. If you encounter any problems or have other questions, feel free to post. Don’t forget the forum search feature. You can often find what you’re looking for there.
Unfortunately, the Twitter integration module isn’t working these days. That would be an interesting module to present in a store. @mdhenriksen’s idea of a photo gallery of products is pretty slick.
Perhaps a news feed of fashion news.
@bhepler said in MM and UBUNTU. Made for each other.:
Sigh. I suppose I can try again. Did you have to do any fiddling to get the OS to use a graphics driver?
No sir. I did a standard install of ubuntu 16.04LTS (I only use this version. I tried 18.xx and had trouble) During the setup of the installation there is a click box for “use third party drivers” or something to that effect. I always click (enable) that option. I don’t know if it’s worth mentioning but I always use a wired internet connection during installation. It’s just faster that way as it updates everything.
Let me know how you make out.
@richland007 - It certainly is possible. If you’re just passing in a data JSON, then you can use the technique in the Compliments module. The config.js really is just a configuration file, right? The Compliments module has a smattering of code to load the external file as straight JSON and treat that data as an array, IIRC. It basically moves the configuration just for that module to an external file.
You can look at the code in the Compliments module at the main MagicMirror git project. It’s like one function to pull from the file system and a little code to detect that the file name was set in the main config.sys.
Hello, Merry Christmas to you. The Magic Mirror project is not there yet. I first set myself to Home Assistant. The integration of the individual components was not difficult. I have only s.konfig problems. I find nothing like it is to be fidnen in the internet. It must be possible to change the access data of Plex again.
My current plan is to have the home assistant working properly. then the mirror will turn on. the headline is not quite fit because I want to get started piece by piece.
My hardware is a Pi3 via LAN cable on the router. As a router, I use a fritzbox 7590. I installed Home Assistant with the HASS.io image. OR. Flash the map, the rest of the installation takes all alone and can already find a lot of my hardware. Somehow the config just looks different and Home Assistant does not seem to understand what I’m telling him. I’ll play it all over again and try again.
@m1cr0ch1p said in Getting Started:
the software setup?
There is no tutorial for hardware/build as everyone’s hardware and build techniques are different. However, if you read through the forum topics, or search the forum topics (which I recommend) you will find plenty of ideas.
Take a look at some of the builds that others have made:
I have a MagicMirror Infopanel tinkered with multiple pages (MMM page selector) weather, departure times trains etc.
Is it possible to have a PDF or Excel file displayed on a page? I was thinking of a folder in which this file is stored and MM indicates this.
How could I implement that?
I’d be thankful for Tips.
Ich habe ein MagicMirror Infopanel gebastelt mit mehreren Seiten (MMM-Page-Selector) Wetter, Abfahrtszeiten Züge usw.
Ist es möglich sich auf einer Seite eine PDF oder Excel Datei anzeigen zu lassen. Ich dachte da an einen Ordner in der diese Datei abgelegt wird und MM zeigt diese an.
Wie könnte man das umsetzen.
Für Denkanstöße wäre ich dankbar.
Staying away from the implications of installing on your corporate computer…
Try Debian for Linux Subsystem for Windows if you use Windows 10, you can install it from the Windows Store.
To use the store app you have to enable the WSL subsystem first by following the guide.
Afterward just install the “Debian GNU/Linux” app from the windows store.
Here comes an unashamed developer.
MMM-AssistantMk2 : Embedded Google Assistant, you can make custom voice command to control MM, it’s module and your system.
MMM-Hotword : Simple voice hotword detection engine - snowboy implements.
MMM-GroveGestures : 3D sensor for gesture recognition.
MMM-TelegramBot : You can interact with your MM via Telegram.
MMM-NotificationTrigger : It has a webhook gateway to request from external Web API(e.g; IFTTT) to deliver MM notification (You need Static IP/domain or DDNS or at least SSH tunnel)
kleiner Tip, was die Auswahl des Spionspiegels angeht. Ich habe mehrere ausprobiert und bin nun bei dem Produkt Mirropane Chrome Spy gelandet. Ich muss sagen, dass Ergebnis ist sensationell! Ich habe mir meinen kostengünstig auf Wunschmaß bestellt im Shop www.Glas-Spiegel24.de
@babyray said in Anfänger hat Fragen:
ich bin ein absoluter Anfänger was MM angeht und eher die einfache Windows User. Also keinerlei Erfahrung mit diesem Linux Kram.
Ich möchte aber gern mal etwas rumprobieren und daher wende ich mich an euch.
In den ganzen Anleitungen werden die Displays immer auseinander gebaut, ich nehme mal an um Platz zu sparen, aber geht das auch mit einem kompletten Monitor?
Quasi Spiegel vor den Monitor montiert, RPi3 dran und gut ist? Oder muss der Spiegel/Folie zu dicht wie möglich ans Display?
Bekommt man das ganze ohne Programmierkenntnisse hin?
Ciao a tutti gli italiani,
Ho fondato il primo canale Telegram dedicato allo sviluppo e l’implementazione di nuove tecnologie inerenti al MIRROR ITALIANO!!
Qui di seguito il link di invito e la mia email di lavoro:

WIth a little creative woodworking, you could route a channel along the frame. Similar to a rabbet, but an 8mm wide and 2mm deep channel could fit a string of LEDs. The lights would illuminate her face but the channel would keep them from washing out the acrylic & screen.
Re: Selling Magic Mirrors
Sorry I am little bit late with the forum, but just a noobie question, can you sell the magic mirror with all the magic mirror2 prebuild in the Pi??? There’s no legally issues about that??
