Change module position dynamically?

  • Hi,

    I am building an app to control my mirror at a distance and am using MMM-Remote-Control’s API to perform actions on the mirror via HTTP requests.

    I’d like to be able to, for example, send a request with a message in the payload and a region to display the message on. So I could send “Hello!” and have it appear in the bottom left, in the center, in the top_bar, etc.

    Is there a way to easily display something at a position not declared in the config? Right now I’m thinking of making one fixed “module” for each position possible and then just sending the request to a specific module to display it at that modules fixed position, but I was wondering if y’all had any better ideas?

    Thanks a ton,
    Looking forward to building this thing
