Hello, @MichMich! If you hover over a linked name, you get some infos about the user. If you tap the blue menu button in the appearing window you can see, there is also a chat you can use to talk to a user directly, of course you also find that option on the users profile page.
That’s about it for now. Have fun using the forum and of course working on your mirror!
A warm welcome ...
When I started the Magic Mirror project over 2 years ago, I could have never guessed that it would become such a widely used concept. Not only did many of you built and improve my proof of concept, you also showed me the power and excitement of open source projects.
I’m very grateful that @paviro took the time to set up this awesome place for sharing ideas, giving and getting support, and showing of your version of the MagicMirror.
Together we can make MagicMirror even better, and i’m looking forward to working together with all of you!
Keep up the good work!
FRITZ!Box Callmonitor - always know who is calling!
It also adds an optional widget to the UI which can be used as a call history or if configured correctly as a list of missed calls.
Numbers are automatically converted to their corresponding names if an
.vcf address book file is given to the module.
If you have any questions or requests for future versions, don’t hesitate to ask!
Calendar event dates enhancement
This is a request that was made by djsunrise19 on GitHub which i will quote below:
Hi, today I've seen another behavior. I had an event at 16 o'clock. I looked on both (MM1 and MM2) mirrors at 15 o'clock: MM1: displays in 1 hour or in 45 minutes (of course, 15minutes later) MM²: displays today at 16 o'clock Is it possible to put this function from MM1 in your MM² app? I know that is a personal feature. But in my opinion the MM1 solution fits way better. So you realize that the event is in the near future. Perhaps we can make that configurable.
This is my current take on it. I added a
timeFormat config option that allows you to set it to
'relative'. When set to
'relative' the time display will look like this:
'absolute' format, it looks like this:
The current code already checks whether an event is happening within the next 48 hours and translates the event time into ‘TODAY at’ or ‘TOMORROW at’. I added another check to see if an event it within the next 6 hours, which will change the time format to ‘in x hours’ which will count down till the event happens:
This is all currently being worked on locally on my fork. Once done I’ll submit a pull request. But I’d like to get feedback from others (as well as from djsunrise19 who originally requested this.) I’d like to know what other enhancements/changes people would like to see.
One thing for me is how I like things displayed. I like the relative time, but only up to a point. For example, if I see an event that says ‘in 2 days’, that will get my attention versus if it said ‘May 4th’. Simply because I may not know what the current date is and see the absolute date won’t mean much. However, at the same time, an event that’s happening 20 days from now, I don’t need it to say ‘in 20 days’. I’m perfectly happy with it saying ‘May 22nd’ on that. So i may add another option, maybe call it
'urgency' and allow it to be configurable to what one would want. For me that would be a week, so that any event happening within a week, it would say ‘in x days’ where everything else further away would display the absolute date. It’s a combination of having both absolute as well as relative dates displayed. That’s just my preference though.
MMM-fitbit allows you to view your fitbit data right on your mirror!
It is fully configurable to allow you to display:
- Floors climbed
- Caloriees burnt
- Distance Walked
- Active minutes
- Time asleep
- Resting heart rate
- Development is ongoing and there may still be bugs to squash so please feel free to message me about it!
MMM-wordnik - Word of the Day
- This module is still in development so contributions, suggestions, and bugs hunts are all welcome!
Nice one! Wish I had a Fitbit to use it
Nice one! Very beautiful!
Because I’m very curious who is building the MagicMirror, I thought it would be fun to introduce ourselves. Most of you will probably know me by know, but a little bit more personal info can’t hurt …
I’m Michael Teeuw, 34 years old. Engaged with a beautiful flight attendant, father of the 8 month old future-maker; Enzo. And a self employed business owner.
My best known project is the MagicMirror, currently working on an Automatic Curtain project and previously finished the PowerSuit. Besides from my maker projects, I’ve got a few Apps in the Apple App Store.
Although this isn’t my best picture, it’s probably the most fitting image to post on the MagicMirror forum …
Nice to meet you all!
Good idea! Nice to get to know the people behind the GitHub comments a bit. Will add mine as soon as I finished the housing of my mirror
EDIT: Just noticed this is not in the show your mirror category, so I don’t actually have to finish my mirror for it Will add mine in a second
