Error with npm run config:check (noob)

  • I don’t have any clue how I should resolve this error. I’ve tried checking the file it refers to, but don’t see how I could fix anything. I don’t have any prior programming knowledge, so I’m resolving problems as I go about. Any help would be appreciated.

    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ npm run config:check
    > magicmirror@2.12.0 config:check /home/pi/MagicMirror
    > node js/check_config.js

  • @Joeritn config check is broken on the release.

  • So does this mean there’s nothing I can do about this, and wait for an update to resolve the issue?

  • @Joeritn u can ask for help. fix won’t be for a couple months more than likely

    what is the problem?

  • @sdetweil I just want to fix the error “Wrong syntax in the config file!”. I thought I might be able to fix this myself, but you’re saying that it’s broken on release.

  • @Joeritn do this,

    hopefully it won’t mess up.more than it fixes

    cd ~/MagicMirror
    npm install

    they changed how checking is done, but put all the code to DO the checking in the development tree, which I don’t load to save space on the SD card. you don’t need all the test cases and testing infrastructure, cause u will never run it

  • @Joeritn but what is the error shown?

    if it’s unexpected symbol, then 95% of the time I missed a trailing comma on the line before the reported error

  • @sdetweil this is the error:

    Error: Wrong syntax in config file!

    npm ERR! code ELIFECYCLE

  • @Joeritn not check config. that is broken

    the error from npm start

  • @sdetweil I did npm start in the MM folder. Is this what you mean? The mirror starts as it should, but on the bottom, there’s an error indeed. I have an internet connection.
