MagicMirror² v2.14.0 is available! For more information about this release, check out this topic.

MMM-Awesome-Alexa (again =p)



  • I know you all are about sick of this module, but it’s half the reason i made the smart mirror, and like most of the other people i’m just struggling. I got the config done and it looks like it went right, but when i put the code in config/config.js file my magic mirror comes back black (never turns on according to MMM-remote). So i’m guessing there’s an issue with the code becuase when i comment it out, my MM works just fine. So i had a couple questions. I’ve posted my code below to see if you all can find any issues. I also wasnt sure if i needed to put that code from below where it says : Full response from Amazon. ```
    {
    “module”: “MMM-awesome-alexa”,
    “position”: “bottom_bar”,
    “config”: {
    “wakeWord”: “Alexa”,
    “clientId”: amzn1.application-oa2-client.0fa20b2othercodehere71bd8e1,
    “clientSecret”: 53e57d1db3d529ac84ee1b6f9d42d53othercodeherefbb848aa39b4,
    “deviceId”: MagicMirror_2
    }
    },



  • @stalker401 lets look for errors

    in the window where u start MM, look for messages, either npm start, or if using pm2, the pm2 logs --lines=??? where ??? is a number, default 15

    also open the developers window, ctrl-shoft-i on the mm keyboard, and select the tab labeled console, and scroll up. u can also filter messages by module by putting a unique part of the module name in the filter field, in this case alexa

    u have what we call black screen…



  • @sdetweil thanks I’ll try that tonight



  • So when I ran the pm2 logs --lines=15 i got the error about an invalid ClientID and when I changed the client ID to null i got the same error with the clinet secret. When i changed that null i got the clientsecret error again. i’m not really sure when i went wrong here as I copied and pasted the clientID & clientSecret from my AVS account.

    I did also put the dev consule and I didn’t see any alexa errors

  • @stalker401 1st error, missing comma on line before

    2nd error, the id needs to be in quotes

    also,
    general rules for module definition
    {} and [] must be matched
    the word to the left of : does not need quotes
    the thing to the right of : if a number or, true/false does NOT need quotes
    otherwise it needs quotes, single or double doesn’t matter as long as start and end quote are the same

    if the thing on the next line starts with a word , then THIS line needs a trailing comma
    if the thing on the next line starts with {, then THIS line needs a trailing comma



  • @sdetweil I really appreciate your help, and i’m sorry i can’t seem to figure this out on my own at all. So here’s what I tried:

    i used this code:

    		  module: "MMM-awesome-alexa",
    		  position: "bottom_bar",
    		  config: {
    		    wakeWord: "Alexa",
    		    clientId: "null",
    		    clientSecret: "null",
    		    deviceId: "null",
    		  }
    		},
    

    and got this error:

    I’ll also say when I try to get to the dev console i get this error that stats couldn’t not connect…



  • @stalker401 u didn’t finish the install. all 14 steps.



  • @sdetweil lol i was racking my brain what i was doing wrong. I’ll go back and see what I missed thanks!



  • @stalker401 i made a script out of the steps

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/omrx3vztjp738hf/do-install.sh?dl=0

    download, make it executable ( chmod +x do-install.sh)
    and then execute it… (./do-install.sh)

    the steps include the whole thing, git clone, and onward



  • Thanks so much for your help. I got it up and working, and i see where I missed some early steps actually.
