Unwanted cross-reaction of two module settings - MMM-PIR vs. MMM-AVStocks



  • Dear all,

    I currently use two modules in my setup which for some unknown reason are cross-interacting in a unwanted way:

    My config.js looks like this:

    		{
    		    module: 'MMM-PIR',
    		    position: 'bottom_center',
    		    config: {
    		        sensorPin: 4,
    		        delay: 30000,
    		        turnOffDisplay: true,
    		        showCountdown: true,
    		        callbackScripts: ["callback.py"]
    		    }
    		},
    
    		{
    		  module: "MMM-AVStock",
    		  header: "Stocks",
    		  position: "top_right", //"bottom_bar" is better for `mode:ticker`
    		  config: {
    		    apiKey : "XXXXXXXXXX", // https://www.alphavantage.co/
    		    timeFormat: "DD-MM-YYYY HH:mm:ss",
    		    symbols : ["aapl", "GOOGL", "AMZN"],
    		    alias: ["Apple", "Google", "Amazon"], 
    		    tickerDuration: 60, 
    		    chartDays: 90,
    		    poolInterval : 1000*15, 
    		    mode : "table", // "table", "ticker", "series"
    		    decimals: 2, 
    		    candleSticks : false, 
    		    coloredCandles : false, 
    		    premiumAccount: false, 
    		  }
    		},
    

    Now comes the peculiar thing: if I set

    showCountdown: false,
    

    in MMM-PIR the on screen countdown of this module disappears as intended but so does also the list of the AVStock. In fact the header of AVStocks is still there but the actual list does not appear. Also if I change the

    mode : "table", // "table", "ticker", "series"
    

    nothing happens. This behavior is fully reversible and reproducible. It would be great if someone could help me out on this.
