Black Screen on Localhost...

  • Hi…i have installed node and the MM2 to test in a Pc before starting with Pi and entering to localhost:8080 the screen is black…no text…no nothing 😞
    The config.js is already in 8080 too what could be happening? Thanks

    @Leotrap Usually a black screen means that there is an error in the config.js file. First, I would start the mirror in dev mode via npm start dev. It should show you the browser console so you can see if there are any error messages.

  • Thanks @bhepler this is what I got 0_1480555648940_upload-426cb398-ef76-48cd-ae45-6ecd5b1b7aec

    @Leotrap Hrm. That’s really weird. It’s like it wasn’t expecting the very first character of the index.html file. Let’s try without the dev tag. First, remove the debug log at C:\Users\usario\Downloads\MagicMirror-master\MagicMirror-Master\npm-debug.log if it exists. Run the mirror normally with npm start from within the MagicMirror-Master\MagicMirror-Master folder. If you still get a black screen, stop your npm process and then see if that log file has been recreated.

    If it has, copy it in here using the markdown features and we’ll take a look at it.

  • Hi @bhepler I did what you told and exactly the same is happening but withouts the DEV after the index.html. I Attach capture and the debug created… Thanks man

    What happens, if you run node serveronly instead?

  • Might be a silly question, but did you run npm install on the mirror root folder to install dependencies? And you made sure node.js is installed on your machine before you got started?

  • Hi guys! From the Cmd I have this… (Attached Image.) The root is fine @jeremytripp and @yawns the problem persist from node trying the nose serveronly too 😞 In the last inage youl’ss that if i enter to localhost everything will be fine… the dark screen appears…that’s goo… but the probles is that modules are not showned…
