MagicMirror² v2.12.0 is available! For more information about this release, check out this topic.

Update the mirror for the first time in six months, won't start now



  • I updated MagicMirror as well as all the modules using git pull. I then ran npm update. Now my mirror is blank. Here are some errors I am seeing. I’d appreciate any help.

    @redink git pull & npm install



  • @redink can I ask what device u are loading on? Pi 3?

    in addition to what @Stoffbeuteluwe posted, I suggest you use my updater script from
    https://github.com/sdetweil/MagicMirror_scripts

    upgrade-script.sh will do the git pull and npm install, and refresh npm setup for any modules that might need it
    it should handle all the work… and give you a trial run of all that…

    only applying changes if u request them

    give it a try this works on Mac as well

    bash -c "$(curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sdetweil/MagicMirror_scripts/master/upgrade-script.sh)"
    

    no changes are made to the local repo or the working copy

    if you WANT to actually apply the changes do

    bash -c "$(curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sdetweil/MagicMirror_scripts/master/upgrade-script.sh)" apply
    

    if you have already done the git pull, you will need to use force to get the script update the same version

    bash -c "$(curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sdetweil/MagicMirror_scripts/master/upgrade-script.sh)" force
    

    there is a log file (upgrade.log) in the MagicMirror/installers folder…



  • Messed with it too much and broke something. Time for another fresh install.
    Sigh…
    Every time I update the mirror, something breaks.

    @sdetweil, I’ll be trying your install script and update script from now on. Hopefully it will be a smoother experience that usual.

    This is why I’ve never built a MagicMirror as a gift. I can barely maintain my own mirror.



  • @redink sorry, it is a delicate thing…

    let us know how it goes



  • Well, I managed to get it up and running, and the script you provided seems to be a lot less finicky that my last install process. However, one of my modules MMM-CalendarExt is currently not showing. Trying to troubleshoot this, but here’s the log in case anyone wants to help out.

  • @redink that log says MagicMirror can’t start



  • Never mind, it’s too late, and my brain isn’t working.
    I had the module commented out 😞
    Still, I am seeing those errors in my logs.



  • @redink it does not erase the prior logs

    To do that pm2 flush
    Then start again
