MMM-NYC-Transit Module (Black Screen)



  • Hi All,
    I am getting a black screen after installing this module. Can I get some help reviewing what might have caused it. This is a new install on a RPI 3.
    I read this post thinking I may get insight into issue but to no avail. I even registered for a new API key and that wasn’t it.

    This is my current config.

    Any help or insight will be most appreciated.



  • @JediJah open the developers console, ctrl-shift-i on the mirror keyboard, select the tab labeled console, and put nyc in the filter field

    are there any errors shown, typically red text



  • @sdetweil Thanks for the response. There are no errors shown.



  • @JediJah ok, take the nyc out of the filter field… black screen means the UI died… so its gotta be there somewhere

    if u add

    disabled: true,

    to the module definition
    right after the module name

    {
     module:'MMM-NYC-Transit',
     disabled: true,                                 // add this line
     ...
     config: {
     }
    }
    

    does the black screen go away?



  • I realized I have since removed the config. I will re-add and check again.



  • @sdetweil I added the module to config, disabled!
    The Mirror loads as normal.
    Something I find weird is even with the module disabled, its header is still shown.

  • @JediJah it is not disabled according to the picture
    and the screen is not black

    if it were disabled, NOTHING about the module would show…

    same as if that entry was not in config.js at all



  • @sdetweil I figured thats why I said it was weird.

    This is what the module looked like in my config

      {
                  module: 'MMM-nyc-transit',
                  disabled: "true",
                  position: "bottom_right",
                  header: "Next Train",
                  config: {
                         apiKey: '9b76b0b756f7f9a76d4fe883075c00cf',
                                    displayType: 'list',
                                    mtaType: 'train',
                                    stations: [
                                            {
                                            stationId: 95,
                                            walkingTime: 5,
                                            dir: {
                                                    upTown: false,
                                                    downTown: true
                                                 }
                                            },
                                            {
                                            stationId: 95,
                                            walkingTime: 5,
                                            dir: {
                                                    upTown: true,
                                                    downTown: false
                                                 }
                                            }
                                            ],
                                    updateInterval: 300000
                    }
                    },
    

    These are the steps I just tried…
    recreated original circumstances that caused black screen (added Module to config) and yes the black screen still exist.

    I assume that means there is issue with module config settings.

    I tried to launch the Dev console, but it did not launch in same page as black mirror screen but a white page.

    I will wait for your response before making changes to config.js file again.



  • @JediJah said in MMM-NYC-Transit Module (Black Screen):

              disabled: "true",
    

    no, i said

    disabled: true
    

    no quotes

    how do you start MM? using pm2 or manually



  • @sdetweil Aww OK will adjust
