MMM-BMW just displaying 'boring weather'



  • I’m using the sample without change, no clue what I might be doing wrong.

    {
    			disabled: false,
    			module: "MMM-BMW",
    			position: "bottom_bar",               // bottom_bar or lower_third is best
    			config: {
    				apiKey: "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX", // Free API key @ https://www.wunderground.com
    				tempUnits: "C",		              // C of F
    				stateOrCountry: 'NY',             // US states abbr. or other country codes
    				city: 'New_York',                 // City, eg. New_York (with underscore - no spaces)
    				useHeader: false,                 // true if you want a header                 
    				header: "Current Weather",
    				maxWidth: "100%",
    			}
    		},

    First, a newer version of this module is available using the darksky api.
    https://github.com/mykle1/MMM-BMW-DS

    With that, the old wunderground api keys no longer work and there are no longer free api keys obtainable. Did you purchase an api key? I don’t have one to test with.

    Honestly, I think you would be much happier with the newer version but I am willing to help you if you’ve purchased an api key.

  • @Mykle1 I wasn’t aware of the new version, so I’ll go there. I entered my pws, I didn’t purchase a key. I’ll assume it’s an api issue.

    Thanks!

    Working already! I love the look, thanks for a fantastic extension. I wish I could MMM-CalendarExt working so easily.

    It is. IBM bought WunderGround and disabled all free api keys. That is why I rewrote the module.

    That’s very kind of you. I’m glad you like it. 👍

    That’s @Sean’s module. He gives great support for his modules. I’m sure he can (and will) help you get up and running with that.
