[MMM-JaST] Just another Stock Ticker (new: version 2.x)
Please check your symbols. The “undefined” error comes when there are invalid symbols in your list
@Jalibu thanks for your continuos work on this module. It’s awesome and I use it on few MM deployments. Virtual beer sent your way
Perhaps you know, is there a way to pull a list of stocks into a config.js file, from a different file? I am no expert in JS but maybe there is a way to pull some of the config elements from a different file?
thank you for the beer
What do you mean with “different file”? Should that be a central/remote file which should be loaded over the internet from different mirrors or just another local file on the same system?
Preferably the other file with defined stocks would be on the same system.
I kind of get it how to make this work with python scripts but I have no clue if it’s possible with JS.
@uros76 either you prepare/autogenerate the config.js in a preflight with the stocks of your file before you start the mirror or I am afraid that it won’t work without programming efforts in the module.
Can you explain me the use case?
@jalibu I am making a small MM project, based on rpi 3 and a small screen. This will be used by my friends who are occasionally trading with crypto and stocks.
Rather than teaching them how to edit a list of monitored stocks in the config.js (which could lead to catastrophic failure) I would prefer them to edit an independent shared file with the list of stocks only. This way we avoid breaking the core MM system and have the flexibility to change the list of stocks daily if needed.
I like the idea of autogenerating the config file. Will have a look into it if I can do it with python script. If you come up with some other solution let me know.
@jalibu I completely forgot about this one. I will disable the rest and just allow Jast module to be editable. This could also work, thanks
@jalibu you could pull a json list of stocks from a file, like compliments does
and do it on some timed cycle, hourly, daily.
@uros76 one could also try using my MMM-Config module, which presents a form for config.js, where user could + to add, - to remove
then the user could change via their phone or ipad/laptop…
@sdetweil excellent, yes that’s what I am trying now. Thanks
