@Albinolan I had the same idea a few months ago and I’m still thinking about realizing this. There is, after all a module here that can show pictures in the background. There is also one guy using MM without a mirror on his fridge.
Lots of cool ideas
Regarding this: The smart mirror idea has been getting some push in recent months/years and some people try to make money out of it. There’s a lot open source to build upon I guess.
I’d also welcome a solution that the first few posts are somewhat restricted. For example, if you have a post count below 10, allow the start of only one thread every hour. Should be enough in the beginning.
And then, would it be possible to implement a solution, that if a thread of someone in this restricted user group is flagged as spam (maybe by two or three people in the unrestricted user group in a short time), it will be unpublished immediately and marked for moderation? This forum is pretty civil and I’d think abuse of this function would be low to zero.
wie kann ich bei den angezeigten objekten , die farbe ändern? wie hier dargestellt?
kann man auch das grosse icon verschieben? zum beispiel in die mitte des display und es auch grösser machen?
how can I change the color of the displayed objects? as shown here?
is it possible to move the big icon? for example, in the middle of the display and make it bigger too?
Prior to trying to install the magic mirror I updated all of the firmware on my pi, could that cause an issue?
It could. I had a Pi lose its Bluetooth and Wifi after a firmware upgrade, but MM still installed. I can’t say that is your issue but something out of the ordinary is certainly going on there.
At the very least, the manual install I suggested SHOULD have worked. I’ve done it many, many times, on Pi’s, PC’s running Windows, PC’s running uBuntu, and most recently (last week), a 32bit MacBook running uBuntu, all without fail.
Perhaps someone else with more knowledge than I will chime in here. I’ve never even seen the “Optional SKIPPING OPTIONAL DEPENDENCY” message before
Ahhhh so it is only possible for the start post and you have to write them (not chose them). But it can easily be missed and that’s too bad. I have now added tags to my first post. I think tags is a great way to get to solutions or points of interest righter fast.
@Sean While there isn’t currently a module specifically for homebridge, there are a few that interact with smart thermostats, Wink hub, and some others I remember seeing. You might get what you want from these.
I’m not sure how easy it would be to write a module that talks directly to HomeBridge, as you’ll need to keep in mind it is speaking Apple HomeKit, which makes you jump through many hoops to do seemingly simple things. Likely displaying status of items without interacting with them should be fairly straight forward, but if you need your mirror to allow control of these devices, it might be tricky.
