I’m working on customizing the the compliments module. The Raspberry pi is configured to load a MyCloud directory on boot. I’m attempting to store the custom compliments files on the MyCloud directly. If i configure the compliments module for a local file, like “./quotes.json”, it works perfectly. However if i configure the module to pull the file from the cloud, like “/home/pi/MyCloud/MagicMirror/quotes.json”, the module fails to load the file. the cloud is mounted when the mirror is started and I’ve verified all correct path. Would anyone have any ideas on why one will load but the other will not?
@evansmb if the file is ‘remote’ you MUST use http://
if u want to pull it from a ‘file’, that is on a cloud .‘drive’ then the file MUST be in the
compliments folder… u can link to the remote of course…
so the choices are
file in the compliments folder (or a symlink from teh compliments folder to the real source)
remotefile, requires http://someserver/somefile
