Basic configuration issues with compliments & calendar modules

  • Hi all,

    Some very simple things don’t work, I’m guessing it’s me so thanks for your patience 🙂 I’ve successfully installed MagicMirror and have been able to configure it to show my Google Calendar, as well as weather for my region. So far, so good.

    However, I could only get the compliments module to disappear by removing it from the config.js file. Adding disabled: true in the following manner (like it says here) does not seem to have any effect:

                            module: 'compliments',
                            position: 'lower_third',
                            disabled: 'true',
                            config: {

    Then, when I configure the calendar, the maximumEntries seems to be respected but preventing fading or hiding the symbol before each entry does not work with this configuration:

                            module: 'calendar',
                            position: 'top_left',
                            header: 'Agenda',
                            config: {
                                    maximumEntries: '5',
                                    displaySymbol: 'false',
                                    fade: 'false',
                                    calendars: [
                                                    url: 'https://URL.ics'

    I hope anyone knows if I’m doing something wrong, and what?

  • @mh77 you have to type booleans without quotes

    disabled: true , fade: false and displaySymbol: false

  • Ah of course, that’s it. Thanks so much!

    I hadn’t thought of it, because when I used ‘onlyTemp’ in my currentweather module config, it worked when I entered ‘true’. But it also only shows the temperature when I enter ‘false’ there, so it somehow defaults to true if you enter it with any value between single quotes.

    Anyhow, thanks again!

  • @mh77 a string in javascript is handled as true, so 'false' => true
