MTA MODULE MM NEWBIE HERE!



  • 2020-05-14-194423_1024x768_scrot.png ))

    I hope that everyone is well and healthy at this time. So, I successfully installed magic mirror as well as a module after several attemps and several segues to make it happen.

    I’ve been struggling trying to install the MTA Subway Module however, after several attempts with use of the newbie guide to modules, It finally worked and didn’t cause my MM to corrupt however, none of the modules that I have personally installed doesn’t seem to work for some strange odd reasoning . I have posted on what I think is a decent config script however, I notice that my line of module is a bit off from the program file…

    I’ve included a screenshot .

    Thank you2020-05-14-194423_1024x768_scrot.png

    At first glance, I see you’re missing a closing comma at the end of the transit module entry. You can start there. 🙂

        }
    },


  • @Mykle1 Hi Mykle, I appreciate your reply… I see that you’re in the big apple like me , I hope that you’re well and staying healthy.

    So, I tried adding ; to the last curly and I restarted MM however, a splash screen popped up upon restart.2020-05-15-080937_1024x768_scrot.png



  • @Mykle1 I followed your posting I believe as much as possible.



  • @jeaniouso he said “a closing comma”, not semicolon,

    the config is a list (array ) of module entries
    each starts with { and ends with }
    if there is another one coming, add a ‘,’ to the end of the 1st, to say ‘more coming’

    it won’t hurt to have a ‘,’ after the module block }

    modules: [                                  // start of list (array)
    {                                           // start of a module 
    ...
    }                                           // end of a module entry
    ,                                           // another entry to follow
    {
    ...
    }, 
    etc
    etc
    ]                                           // end of the modules list (array)

  • @jeaniouso but that is the default config.js, not the one w the module u are having trouble with…

    Also, u can edit your forum posts to correct posting errors.
    .I worked w u tonight, and u had the modules installed correctly, but the API key was not correct for some reason



  • @sdetweil @Mykle1 2020-05-15-233649_1024x768_scrot.png

    Thank you so much for your tireless efforts! I finally have it working… I played around with the script after getting rid of errors pointed out by @Mykle1 plus his tutorial was excellent as I read it again and I opted for another API key that I found on here as suggested by @sdetweil … I finally got it working thanks to you two!! Now I can rest lol… Man what a workout!!!
