How do you get modules to communicate with each other?
I’ve seen that it can be done using notifications however i dont really understand how to do so, do you have to write a script of some sort?
The kind of thing im looking to do is have multiple pages using MMM-Pages and for example have a voice recignition module to change page.
I just need the basic idea however as currently i have no idea how to do so.
in this case u need to send a notification that the MMM-Pages module understands.
the module documents the notifications it understands
@sdetweil sorry my laptop stopped working so only just seen this! Where am i writing these commands? In config.js? Do i need to put some sort of if condition in? Also do you know of any exaple codes that show how to do this?
@adrien00 the source code of the voice module would need to do this.
many modules use this . my MMM-SleepWake does this to tell other modules that we are blanking the screen or waking it up
all the default modules send notifications to tell others about the weather, the calendar, alerts, news…
other modules can use the info or ignore it.
sendNotification is a broadcast to all other running modules
@sdetweil This is so helpful, thanks!
@adrien00 I have two modules that relay info back and forth to each other. They are weather modules and I get info and send it over to the other module.
I do this because I needed/wanted some weather info to show up in a specific place so I send my ‘payload’ from the 1st module to the 2nd module…
