For all you dutch and german people out there, I have created a module that is inspired by the app Buienalarm. It is based on the modules MMM-rainfc and MMM-rain-forecast. Thanks to @cirdan and @spoturdeal for their groundwork.
I have created this since I wanted the rain forecast to be more prominent on the mirror.
This module implements chart.js for a nicer graph and
- uses Buienradar API, works in Netherlands and parts of Western Germany
- line or bar graph possible
- rain icons for light, medium, heavy rain as orientation help
- flexible sizes, color
Any ideas or corrections welcome and appreciated!
I tried the module today with the default confit and it only shows “no data” / “Keine Daten!”.
I use: lat: 52.15 and lon: 5.55.
Update: Sorry, I took a while, but now I see some data.
I changed lat and lon from default to my coordinates
lat: 52.55, lon: 13.45,
and get no data anymore.
Is that Berlin?
The current master branch uses Buienradar (NL) and does not work east of, let’s say Dortmund.
You could try to switch to the ‘climacell’ branch
git fetch --all git checkout climacell git pull
You’d need a climacell api key.
I have not completed the Readme yet in that branch. Will do over the next days.
Yes, that is Berlin.
I am happy to give cimacell a test if the readme file is online and I know what to do.
@MajorC Then you can just wait.
I guess I’ll push the climacell change to the master branch later since there are already some modules out there that use Buienradar.
Unfortunately, the module no longer seems to work. If I enable it in my config, the dashboard is not loaded anymore. Same yields for the MMM-rainfc module. I really liked their simplicity.
But after updating npm, Node and Magicmirror I can not use these modules anymore.
Any ideas on why this happens?
@sdetweil Thanks Sam, output confirms that it is missing ‘request’.
Tried to install it through npm, but as with many other npm installations I get stuck at:
If I interrupt this installation by ctrl+c I get some output that things went wrong at Node.js playwright… Unfortunately, I can not reproduce that because after several tries it somehow succeeded.
Any idea where this ‘playwright’ error comes from? Can not find anything about it on the forums.
@tinus playwrite is for mm testing.
but you used the wrong command
in the module folder do
npm install request --save
all the other stuff is things u can’t do anything about ( and we can’t suppress the messages)
to redo the mm npm insta with developer tools do
npm install --only=prod
in the MagicMirror folder
