MMM-NBA / NBA Scores Module
Per @strawberry-3-141’s suggestion I’m relocating this discussion from the NFL Module thread. I’ve managed to parse data from
using a python program that stores team names, scores, winners and game times. I can produce this result on the command line:
My current goal is to learn how to execute @strawberry-3-141’s suggestion:
“Help: you can run the python script in from inside the node_helper and read the output, then send the data to your module with a socket notification”
I have a lot to learn. I’ve figured out a lot about socket notifications and sending notifications and data between modules. I think I can probably handle that part. But I have zero confidence in the process of calling the script and reading output from within the node_helper. I suspect running the script from node_helper will look similar to this suggestion:
But the variables are a mystery to me and I don’t know how to read the result. If anybody can link to a tutorial that will help me understand this process I will be very grateful! I would much rather learn to do this for myself than have somebody do the work and write the code for me. Thank you!
in the python script you will need this function to return a json object to your node helper https://github.com/paviro/MMM-Facial-Recognition/blob/master/facerecognition/facerecognition.py#L25
in the node_helper you would need this function https://github.com/paviro/MMM-Facial-Recognition/blob/master/node_helper.js#L9
what variables are unclear to you, name them and we can try to explain them
These are very helpful. I assume I will also need to
import sys import json
at the top of my file?
Right now I’m storing data in a few arrays in my .py file. For example, I have an array where
will display the string of the home team name.
Will this pass the full array?
to_node("home teams", homeTeam)
yes you will need both imports, as they are used in this function
this should pass the full array

@in_a_days Thank you so much for working on this! I’ve been hoping for an NBA module for a while now
Still a long way to go, but I’ll keep working at this till I make something work! :)
The parser is available here if anybody wants to play around with displaying the data.
It’s the first original code I’ve written in a very long time so forgive me if it’s not pretty. ;)
@in_a_days How are things going? Any luck so far?
@in_a_days at least there is a module for the standings https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/1479/mmm-nbaranking-nba-standings
