Sorry for this...



  • Totally new in this, raspberry too but inmmersing. Anyway I want to know some things please.
    1- Can i develop in Windows 10 to make a final script and after that upload it to the Raspberry_
    2- Can I use DreamWeaver to recode? (Please dont laughing! lol it’s true…)
    3- Can I test the functioning over Chrome in a Pc?

    Thanks a lot!



  • Ley @Leotrap. Welcome!

    To answer your questions:

    1. Yes
    2. Yes
    3. Yes

    I use IntelliJ IDEA on Windows 10 to modify my config file via a shared folder on the Pi. But you can certainly upload any script to your Pi with WinSCP or other similar program. Dreamweaver should be just fine. The MagicMirror code is mostly Javascript. Since it’s interpreted code and not compiled, you shouldn’t have to worry about whatever tool you use to modify the script files.

    Yes, you can use Chrome to test your output. At the top of the config.js file will be the port that the mirror will be accessible. Just point your Chrome browser to http://[raspberry IP address]:[port]/ and you’ll see the interface in your web browser.

    Of course you can. Just install node.js on your windows machine, clone the magicmirror package, install it and start developing. There is an instruction here: https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/548/building-mirror-without-programing/2

    I installed it some days ago on a spare windows 7 laptop without any issues.
    The only thing you can’t do is accessing GPIO ports … of course, because your windows machine does not have these.

    bhelper’s answer to question 3 was to access your mirror once your raspberry is running.



  • @yawns so grateful! Thanks man… I’ll try this
