What do you love about your MM ?
I’m just wondering, what do love about your magic mirror?
Do you have specific uses or modules?
What makes it useful for you?
@roger-0 I got one in the first place because one time when I was on-call for my job and working a ticket at night, a predicted storm moved in and I really wanted to see the weather radar. I could have loaded up a weather website (which I did) but also was thinking how nice it would have been to be able to watch the storm come in and pass through. Plus, as much as I am used to have my calendar on my phone, having that available and specifically my work meetings available would be even better. Researching ways to have some sort of monitor (I was wanting something roughly the size of my Nest Hub) led me to the Pi and then to MM.
I keep looking for new modules of information that would be nice to have sitting on my office desk with me to be able to glance over and see. I’m hoping to move sometime this year and I’ll be building a different one to sit in my hallway with information more relevant to commuting to work (if that happens) and useful stuff to glance at on the way out the door.
Discovering the Pi and MM led me to learning how to code, specifically for MM itself. No previous experience with coding , the Pi, or Linux. It captivated me and thanks to a couple of very kind users (one in particular) I was shown some basics and read as much as I could to try to learn. It was also helpful for me to look at the code of existing modules, trying to understand what and how things worked.
Anyway, what do I love about it?
Thank you that really helps, it’s such an interesting project and I’m really interested to see what I can do with it.
