Someone Help (Struggling to get 3rd party modules working)
So right now, I’m trying to get MMM-NowPlayingOnSpotify and MMM-google-route working but when I look in the developer tools I just get the message
failed to load resource: the server responded with a statue of 404 (not found)
*I don’t know much about code so I have been following the beginner tutorial but I’m clearly struggling
@boybay7 that means the folder name of the module doesn’t match.
which means your git clone used the wrong url
can u show us what u did?
@sdetweil So for MMM-google-route I went to the 3rd party modules page, then i clicked the green code and copied the github link and then let that download into the modules folder. I then copied and pasted the code into config.js and added the API keys etc. I don’t know why the folder name wouldn’t match, I haven’t changed any folder name.
EDIT: Well I’m stupid, I realised the 3rd party modules aren’t meant to be placed in the default folder. Well this all makes sense now.
@boybay7 are u working on now? just move the folder out of default
mv ??? …
??? is the folder/module name
@sdetweil Yep all working, I just moved the 3rd party modules and it works now. I did realise though that the MMM-google-route requires you to use your credit card with google cloud platform (I know you get free credit) so I’ve decided to delete that module. Is there anything else like that that doesn’t require you to sign up etc? Thanks for the help by the way, I appreciate it.
@boybay7 no service for free/no credit card that I am aware of
