SOLVED Compliments text cycler without the randomizer
I am trying to have a text cycler just like the compliments module but no randomization so I can customize the order.
@cnelso24 You’ll have to tear the compliments module apart and use parts from it to construct what you want. NO sense in re-inventing the wheel
I gave it a go and deleted the randomness, didn’t try it out cause my RPI sin’t running, but this should work:
it does not work. I tried loading your code into the compliments.js file and none of my modules loaded after that. Thank you for trying though. I am also very new, that’s why I am asking for help
Easy way is if you don’t want random then enter just 1 entry under each time… That way you don’t have to do anything to change it… it’ll just show what you want all the time …
The compliments module isn’t random. It rotates through whatever is in the module according to the time of day…
So if you want it say something different then change it
hmm… good point but then it will only display 1 string at a time, am I correct? What I am trying to do is display 6-8 strings all the time in a specific order.
@cnelso24 Do a search on here… someone was asking or trying to make this work with a separate json file that they wanted to create… maybe you can do it that way.
Try this forum… near the bottom:
yawns was talking about something that could possibly work!
@cnelso24 Okay, so what you want is more something like hello world, but 6 times.
I’ll get my PI back tomorrow, I will setup magicmirror and play around with the modules.
I’m planning on making my own module, so this is a good exercise :p
I’ll let you know If I got it working
I just put this together, based on the original compliments module. I am not sure if this should be added to the default module by PullRequest, which is why I created a standalone repository first.
Thank you! I’ll check it out when I get home
