Further personalization with Face-Reco

    ??? WHATEVER… it’s not my account…

    Luckily @macboy is getting the hint 🙂 🙂



  • Just reposting the initial posts which I’ve deleted with the important info removed. (Thanks again for the heads up on what’s sensitive info and what’s not guys!)

    ------- Original post (in case anyone happens across this and doesn’t understand what my question/issue was) --------

    With my compliments.js per below and my config.js also per below, the Face Reco works. I’ll post a second reply here showing how I tried to change both of these files.

    Module.register("compliments", {
    	// Module config defaults.
    	defaults: {
    		compliments: {
    			anytime: ["Hey there, looking good!"],
    			morning: ["Good morning!", "Enjoy your day!", "Attack today!"],
    			afternoon: ["Hello, beauty!", "You look great!", "Looking good today!"],
    			evening: ["You nailed the day!", "What a great day!", "Hi family!"],
    			"....-01-01": ["Happy new year!"]
    		},
    		updateInterval: 80000,
    		remoteFile: null,
    		fadeSpeed: 4000,
    		morningStartTime: 3,
    		morningEndTime: 12,
    		afternoonStartTime: 12,
    		afternoonEndTime: 17,
    		random: true,
    		mockDate: null
    	},
    
    

    And my current config.js (the whole thing since I can’t figure out why it’s reverting to no Face Reco when I change it).

    var config = {
    	address: "localhost", 	// Address to listen on, can be:
    							// - "localhost", "127.0.0.1", "::1" to listen on loopback interface
    							// - another specific IPv4/6 to listen on a specific interface
    							// - "0.0.0.0", "::" to listen on any interface
    							// Default, when address config is left out or empty, is "localhost"
    	port: 8080,
    	basePath: "/", 	// The URL path where MagicMirror is hosted. If you are using a Reverse proxy
    					// you must set the sub path here. basePath must end with a /
    	ipWhitelist: ["127.0.0.1", "::ffff:127.0.0.1", "::1"], 	// Set [] to allow all IP addresses
    															// or add a specific IPv4 of 192.168.1.5 :

  • ----- Original Post #2 ------

    So I just removed the list of compliments from the compliments.js ‘defaults’ section and pasted the same to config.js as per below. First the new compliments.js

    Module.register("compliments", {
    	// Module config defaults.
    	defaults: {
    		updateInterval: 80000,
    		remoteFile: null,
    		fadeSpeed: 4000,
    		morningStartTime: 3,
    		morningEndTime: 12,
    		afternoonStartTime: 12,
    		afternoonEndTime: 17,
    		random: true,
    		mockDate: null
    	},
    
    

    And the new config.js which disables the Face Reco and shows the compliments as undefined when the mirror loads.

    var config = {
    	address: "localhost", 	// Address to listen on, can be:
    							// - "localhost", "127.0.0.1", "::1" to listen on loopback interface

  • @Macboy cause u need to word compliments in the compliments config in config.js



  • @JerryP said in Further personalization with Face-Reco:

    Luckily @macboy is getting the hint 🙂 🙂

    I don’t want to come across as daft (now or in future posts) so forgive the clarification here. Is the hint I’m getting referring to “Don’t post sensitive info” or is this in reference to “I should read the docs”?

    Both equally important I agree.

    I’m new to this forum and through my searches over the past few weeks setting up my mirror I haven’t seen a lot of “Don’t annoy us, read the docs” posts like I’ve seen on other development type forums. But you guys could just have a kinder way about saying the same. I feel like for the most part I’ve followed the docs - hell…I’ve made it THIS far, right?

    When I set up the compliments module…well, when I customized it I should say, I really didn’t know what I was doing (this was early in the first mirror setup). I looked into config.js AND compliments.js and saw the default compliments there (in compliments.js). So, I edited them there and they worked. Now however when I try to set them up “correctly” in config.js it for some reason disables the Face-Reco setup. I’ll try the above formatting after work and post back if I still can’t figure out what I’ve done wrong to mess up the Face Recognition.

    I DO appreciate everyone’s help here, don’t think that I’m a “Log in and have people lay it all out for me” kind of guy. Many, many scratches to the head happen before I throw in the towel and ask for help - my wife will be the first to confirm that ; )



  • It appears to be working now (snuck to the Pi on my lunch break). I left one compliment in the afternoon class of the defaults list in compliments.js and put one into the instance tagged with my name as the class in config.js using the proper formatting. I now see where I went wrong so thanks for the help. I’ll try making multiple instances in config.js with different users tagged in the classes.
