  • RE: Need help installing modules

    @cheapdad

    This will help you to install modules correctly and make config entries correctly.

    https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/4231/how-to-add-modules-for-absolute-beginners?_=1618794808624

    I have no experience with the MMPM module you speak of. In fact, I’ve never heard of it.

    The default weather module(s) I don’t use but I’m sure someone will help you out, Maybe post your config entry for it so others can see it

    @cheapdad

    How lengthy? And does it include images. If so, what are the file sizes. There are some limitations.

    Have you tried logging out of the forum and logging back in and trying again?

    Just trying to narrow things down

  • RE: MMM-OpenWeatherForecast - Replacement for MMM-DarkSkyForecast

    @pwalsh2202 said in MMM-OpenWeatherForecast - Replacement for MMM-DarkSkyForecast:

    I’m looking to see if I can get just a truncated text-based description of the upcoming weather.

    I’d like to see this too. The DarkSky API had this and it’s the one thing I really miss with switching over to OpenWeather. My guess is that in order to do this I’d need to create a special formatter that generates a detailed summary based on the weather data available. Say the API returned a wind speed of over 10mph, gusts reaching 30mph… I could generate a phrase like “It’s windy today with gusts reaching 30mph.”

    This looks like a significant time commitment that I just don’t have. I would need to come up with all of the thresholds of the weather data that would trigger such phrases, create phrase templates, choose how they should be ordered, and then worry about translation for all of the languages MM supports. As it is I barely have an hour or two on the weekend to dedicate answering forum questions on this module and fixing any bugs.

    If anyone else is willing to do this, I’d gladly welcome the pull request into my code.

    The best my module can currently do to address your ask is to configure the module to only show the current conditions and the extra current conditions (which give you the summary in icon/metric format). You can turn off the hourly and daily forecasts if you like. Take a look through the README.md file with outlines all of the configuration options for this module.

    What css do I do to change color of the slash in H/L in “extraCurrentConditions” ?

    Yes:

    .MMM-OpenWeatherForecast .temperature-container .temperature-separator,
    .MMM-OpenWeatherForecast .forecast-container .forecast-item .temperature-container .temperature-separator {
      color: #FF0000; /* makes it red */
    }
    
    
    

    @fillilutten said in MMM-OpenWeatherForecast - Replacement for MMM-DarkSkyForecast:

    And can I remove “Powered by OpenWeather”?

    Yes.

    .MMM-OpenWeatherForecast .attribution {
      display: none;
    }

    @fillilutten said in MMM-OpenWeatherForecast - Replacement for MMM-DarkSkyForecast:

    Any way to change the order of the different extraCurrentConditions?

    This is technically possible with CSS, but it’s likely more trouble than it’s worth for me to explain it here, and error prone. A better and easier option for you would be to modify the mmm-openweather-forecast.njk file to reorder these items as you like.

    Starting on line 39 you’ll see the templates for the extra current conditions. The order in which they appear here is the order in which they appear in the module.

    Here are the first several lines of that section:

    {# -------------- Extra Current Conditions -------------- #}
        {% if config.showExtraCurrentConditions %}
          <div class="extra-current-conditions-wrapper small bright">
    
            {# -- High / Low Temp -- #}
            {% if config.extraCurrentConditions.highLowTemp %}
              <span class="temperature-container">
                <span class="high-temperature">{{ forecast.currently.tempRange.high }}</span>
                <span class="temperature-separator dimmed">/</span>
                <span class="low-temperature">{{ forecast.currently.tempRange.low }}</span>
              </span>
            {% endif %}
    
            {# -- Sunrise -- #}
            {% if config.extraCurrentConditions.sunrise %}
            <span class="sunrise-container">
              <img class="inline-icon sunrise-icon" src="{{ inlineIcons.sunrise }}" />
              {{ forecast.currently.sunrise }}
            </span>
            {% endif %}
    
            {# -- Sunset -- #}
            {% if config.extraCurrentConditions.sunset %}
            <span class="sunset-container">
              <img class="inline-icon sunset-icon" src="{{ inlineIcons.sunset }}" />
              {{ forecast.currently.sunset }}
            </span>
            {% endif %}
    

    Say you wanted the Hi / Lo temps to display after sunrise / sunset, just move the whole block as follows:

    {# -------------- Extra Current Conditions -------------- #}
        {% if config.showExtraCurrentConditions %}
          <div class="extra-current-conditions-wrapper small bright">
    
            {# -- Sunrise -- #}
            {% if config.extraCurrentConditions.sunrise %}
            <span class="sunrise-container">
              <img class="inline-icon sunrise-icon" src="{{ inlineIcons.sunrise }}" />
              {{ forecast.currently.sunrise }}
            </span>
            {% endif %}
    
            {# -- Sunset -- #}
            {% if config.extraCurrentConditions.sunset %}
            <span class="sunset-container">
              <img class="inline-icon sunset-icon" src="{{ inlineIcons.sunset }}" />
              {{ forecast.currently.sunset }}
            </span>
            {% endif %}
    
            {# -- High / Low Temp -- #}
            {% if config.extraCurrentConditions.highLowTemp %}
              <span class="temperature-container">
                <span class="high-temperature">{{ forecast.currently.tempRange.high }}</span>
                <span class="temperature-separator dimmed">/</span>
                <span class="low-temperature">{{ forecast.currently.tempRange.low }}</span>
              </span>
            {% endif %}
    
    

    Keep in mind that doing this will make it a touch more difficult to update my module as I release updates. When you want to update, you’ll need to to the following:

    1. Make a backup of your modified mmm-openweather-forecast.njk file (copy it to another location, for example)
    2. Restore the original with git checkout mmm-openweather-forecast.njk
    3. Update the code with git pull
    4. Restore your modified version of mmm-openweather-forecast.njk from your backup

  • RE: MMM-OpenWeatherForecast - Replacement for MMM-DarkSkyForecast

    @miniashman A couple of ways, yes:

    By default, the animated icon set is used for the large icon beside the current temperature. I’ve found from my testing that sometimes this the code calls for the icon to render before it is ready to do so, and just shows up blank as you see above. There is a configuration parameter to add a delay to animated icon rendering. Use it in your config as follows:

    ...
      animatedIconStartDelay: 1500,
    ...
    

    This parameter defaults to 1000 (milliseconds) so it looks like you’ll need to experiment with numbers larger than that.

    Alternatively If you don’t care about the animated icon, then you can turn it off altogether in your config:

    ...
      useAnimatedIcons: false,
    ...
    

    This will use the static icon set for everything, and you won’t need to play around with the animatedIconStartDelay config parameter.

    @swvalenti unfortunately, the provider has put “Special weather statement” into the title field and the actual title as part of the description. To get that to show a different colour it would require extra processing to split on the ... character.

    Having seen a few weather alerts from other regions I can say it’s not commonly done the same way as yours. I don’t know what might break as a result of formatting that way for you.

    If you’re up for it, you can modify my code for your needs. Most of this prefornatting is in the main MMM-OpenEeatherForecast.js file

    @blackeaglece that’s not my weather module. You’re using a different one. Not sure which.

  • RE: [MMM-AllsvenskanStandings] Current standings of Swedish football league

    @fallandegubbe Yeah SVT has changed Text TV to be screenshots instead of text. The module scrapes the HTML and since the HTML has changed, the module broke. The text is still there though in the HTML source so a few changes to the scraping code should do the trick.

    I don’t use this module anymore though and don’t have time to look at it. Maybe you have?

    @assassins That’ll work!! Actually I’m going to move this over to my Home Assistant install because I have Ambient lighting on my TV that runs via a RP3…

    Thanks!! 🙂
