UNSOLVED Chalkboard message
Would it be possible to get or create a module that displays a variable text over a large area? This text should look like it was written on a blackboard with chalk.
@Clubjack sure… pick a font
I am sure there are more
Yes… I found fonts too. But with witch Module i can create this messages and Display it large fullsize?
How about this fork of the original compliments module?
It allows one to create a remote file that contains the things that one would like to have displayed on the screen and has a feature to not use randomization. There are customization’s for morning sayings, day sayings , and evening sayings.
Then in the custom.css file find a way to add an entry to specify the chalkboard fonts and thier size/position.
Others more skilled in css customization’s on the forum should be able to help.

I just submitted a PR to enable that for the base compliments module
also the compliments module will take a file, which could be linked remotely to a server file
with no code change
It would be neat to have the ability to change fonts and sizes and positioning natively to accomplish what the OP is intending.
To make it look as though someone has actually written the message in chalk would require independent control of the position of each letter as we all know that nobody writes text by hand that is perfectly straight across. There are always slightly higher letters and slightly lower letters.
This idea would be nifty for a new module development. MMM-Chalkboard.
@BD0G right… i learned a little something the other day helping someone…
u can split a text string into individual span elements < span>letter
and they will all show side by side…
THEN u can apply styles to EACH LETTER (alternating, some other algorithm… )
Thank You. For the first, i try it with compliments. But a nee Module would be nice
Update us with how you do and your progress. :thumbsup
